Introducing our new cost-effective solution, transforming damaged or updating existing concrete surfaces

We are delighted to introduce customers to a new solution for revamping damaged concrete surfaces or updating patios/driveways that customers have grown tired of.

The solution involves the imprinting of ascribed design into the existing concrete surface and staining the imprint with matching colours. The resulting effect is a completely new surface.  Another great thing is that the cost is significantly lower than uprooting the existing surface and replacing with more concrete or slabs.

Colour for Concrete has completed a project using this new solution. 

The customers had a concrete back yard of 200 sq yard, which was laid seven years ago. The concrete was badly damaged due to the application of salt three years ago when there was extreme frost.

There were two options available to the customers:

Option 1

Remove the unsightly concrete and replace with new concrete slabs. The estimated cost was  6-8,000 plus major upheaval and disruption to the rear of the house. Furthermore, there was a risk of structural damage to the surrounding walls due to vibration of works from the hammers removing the concrete.

Option 2

Colour for Concrete,  scribed design and colour staining solution.

In this particular incidence, there was going to be a cost-saving to the customer of approx 30% by choosing option 2.
