The least expensive and most effective way to have coloured concrete at your home is to add a coloured tint to the acrylic sealer. Once plainconcrete is laid, the tinted sealer is applied to the area to give a fresh, uniform finish. The Sealer is absorbed into the concrete making it hard wearing and long lasting, and with a huge range of colours to choose from, you will find the right colour for your home.
Benefits of Coloured Concrete Driveways
Depending on the requirements of your job, the ‘hardener’ or oxide can be mixed into your concrete prior to pouring (colour-in-the-mix), or can be worked into the top layer of your freshly poured concrete (top-colour). Once the concrete has been installed, we will apply two coats of coloured sealer to achieve a rich colour with a glossy finish.

As concrete naturally expands and contracts in the outdoor conditions, concrete will want to move and crack. Expansion Joints are either trowelled into concrete at the time of pour, or are cut by a concrete saw after installation and are spaced across concrete areas to help ‘catch’ the cracks and reduce the risk of unsightly cracks through your concrete.
