Are you After Polished Concrete for Your Outdoor Area?

If you are considering a polished concrete look for your Perth outdoor or alfresco area, you are probably actually after Honed Concrete. Honed concrete is much better suited to outdoor areas and pool surrounds whereas, polished concrete is more suited for indoor use.
Many people confuse honed and polished concrete finishes. While the two are similar, honed concrete is more suitable for outdoor flooring surfaces while, polished concrete is suited for indoor areas.
At ExCo WA, we have the experience and expertise to identify which kind of concrete will best suit your purpose and we specialise in honed concrete for outdoors areas.

What is Polished Concrete? Polished concrete is a style of concrete produced by grinding the rough surface of laid concrete with diamonds to expose the aggregate within the slab.

By continuing to grind with finer diamonds it is possible to achieve a polished finish, which once sealed, will provide a glossed aesthetic which is smooth to the touch and looks fantastic. The style is often used on expansive areas such as living rooms or dining areas however, is not suited for outdoor use, where honed concrete is much more suitable.
