Concrete is a highly customizable and versatile material that enhances aesthetics and offers high durability, and it's no surprise that it's a top choice for residential garages.
Whether you're planning for a future project or getting ready to lay a foundation, several amazing finishes are available, and the Creative Concrete team is here with a breakdown of four popular options.
What Is a Concrete Finish?
The concrete finish is the final treatment applied to the surface after it has been poured and set.
The process can include various techniques, finishes, and colors that enhance the concrete's appearance for a custom look while increasing its durability.
Pigments & Colors
Long gone are the days of traditional gray, and some popular finishes now include pigments that are directly added to the mix. Most color options are earthy tones of greens, grays, browns, and blues, or if you are looking for an unusual style, consider adding swirls that create a unique design.
If you are going for safety, broom finishes are a great option for slip resistance. This finish is completed once the concrete has been poured, leveled, and gone over with a trowel. A broom is dragged across the surface, which creates ridges for extra traction and safer walking.
Polishing is another popular finish if you're looking for a smooth and shiny surface. The design comes from grinding the concrete surface with specific chemicals and specialized tools, leaving a beautiful and stylish result.
Textured concrete is created using inlaid motifs placed on it while curing. They come in a wide array of designs, including stone, brick, and even decorative patterns, so you still get the strength and durability of concrete with the aesthetics of these materials.
Stamped concrete is another popular finish similar to textured. It's created using molds or pre-formed models to stamp it before the material sets.
No matter which one you choose, both designs have an amazing finish and can transform your garage space by adding textures and designs to the environment.
