Concrete Driveways Ballarat
Your driveway is likely to be the first part of your home guests will see so it’s important to ensure it gives them the right impression. With a concrete driveway, you are guaranteed durability and easy maintenance. And you will have a wide variety of styles to choose from.
You can go with a sophisticated exposed aggregate finish or try out a coloured concrete driveway. Stenciled or stamped concrete finishes offer an almost inexhaustible selection of patterns for the decoration of your pathways, ramp or driveways.
Whichever option you choose, you can count on us for immaculate installation and great service.
Concrete makes possible a wide range of finishes for virtually any purpose you can think of. In the past whenever homeowners thought of using concrete, it was to produce a hard-wearing surface that would stand the test of time. But in this day and age, you’re no longer restricted to a plain, grey finish that does little to excite the senses. Here are other options you can choose from:
Having a concrete floor inside your home would have been unthinkable in the not-too-distant past. But with the advancement in quality polished concrete finishes, homeowners have begun to see it as a stylish, cost-effective alternative to tiles. Polished concrete floors and even walls can be achieved using a number of techniques. Depending on your needs or personal taste, we can pour in a penetrating sealer to achieve the classy reflective finish. If yours is a high-traffic area, we can pour a chemical hardener on the surface then polish it mechanically. We can even work closely with a plumber to install any floor heating services you may require.
You can have your concrete garage floor, patio floor or driveway done in the colour of your choice so that you can achieve your desired aesthetics. Your driveway can be finished in a gritty grey to complement the surrounding rock garden or in a dazzling tan brown to break the green monotony of your lawns. We can achieve the coloured finish you want using different methods. We can either use stains, dyes, integral pigments or colour hardeners depending on the outcome you’re hoping for and whether the surface will be indoors or exposed to the elements. Dyes are more suitable for internal applications while colour hardener works best with patterned finishes.
There is a virtually limitless selection of stamp patterns you can choose from to add a unique touch to your driveway, walkway or patio. If you have a landscaped property carpeted in greenery, you can let the beauty of nature continue to shine through with a random flagstone design. Cobblestone paths and driveways will give your property some European flair while a brick pattern will add some Victorian charm. You can even have a pattern that replicates the look and texture of wood. We are the concreter Ballarat residents rely on for beautiful, uniquely patterned concrete finishes.
If you would like to have any of those gorgeous, natural-looking patterns on an existing concrete surface, we recommend stenciling. With this technique we can produce the running bond pattern that is commonly used to create stunning pool decks. While you will get a more realistic look with stamping, stenciling can also be effective in reproducing the beauty of cobblestone on concrete. To ensure the stenciled finish is durable, we do thorough concrete preparation on the surface so that it will bond more readily with the patterned layer. We also repair cracks or any other damage on the surface.
Pave cut, or saw cut concrete is another way decorative patterns are produced on a concrete surface. We cut the patterns into the concrete surface by hand using a diamond saw to produce the look you desire. To prevent the pave cut surface from incurring damage or getting stains that can’t be removed, we will usually seal the surface before proceeding. This ensures that your pave cut driveway or patio will not only be easy to maintain, but will last longer. You can rely on us to produce a high-quality pave cut concrete finish for both your living areas like patios and verandahs, and exterior surfaces like driveways and shed slabs.
A beautifully designed and finished driveway will earn you the admiration of your visitors and boost the curb appeal of your property. While there are a number of different materials you can use to create your driveway, few of them offer the combination of durability, versatility and cost-effectiveness that concrete does.
And when it comes to concrete driveways Ballarat residents trust us to produce a high-quality, visually delightful finish that will serve them for many years.
Driveways can be made using any of a wide array of materials. Besides concrete, you can have your driveway constructed using asphalt, brick, pavers or gravel just to mention a few. So why concrete?
If you’re sold on the qualities of concrete, you will be confronted by numerous options for the finish of your concrete driveway. How do you know which will work and which won’t? Here are some points to help make your decision clearer.
Concrete finishes are not created equal and you will want to select an option that matches your personal taste as closely as possible. Especially if it’s for a place you will call home for many years to come.
A plain concrete finish may do the least damage to your wallet but you probably won’t be satisfied with the overall appearance of your property. An exposed concrete driveway may come with a higher price tag, but the finish will add considerable value to your home and will be a joy to return to every day.
Stamped or stenciled finishes are quite cost effective and will give you an effect as durable and as pretty as what an actual brick or stone driveway will.
When conceptualizing the appearance of your home’s exterior, how your driveway concreting beds in with the prevailing design or colour of your home is an important consideration. By extension, you need to consider the interplay of colours and textures between your driveway and the surrounding landscaping.
This doesn’t necessarily mean your driveway should be the same colour as the walls of your home. Au contraire, having a tasteful contrast between the features of your home will work out to a more satisfactory visual outcome.
The colour of your driveway will play a role in the perceived size of your yard. As a rule of thumb, use lighter hues to make your driveway appear wider or longer and darker hues to make it feel narrower.
We at Complete Concrete Ballarat will be happy to help you choose a concrete driveway that will accentuate the beauty of your yard and add to your property’s value.
Would you like to breathe new life into your patio or give your driveway a fresh new look? Why not redo these surfaces with an exposed aggregate finish? We have helped many residents of Lake Gardens, Inverymay Park, Buninyong and other Ballarat suburbs to install a textured aggregate to stunning effect on their properties.
The rugged beauty of this kind of concrete finish adds a touch of contemporary chic wherever it is applied. Exposed aggregate also offers a great degree of versatility. You can use limestone, quartz, basalts or granite to achieve the look you desire.
Besides different kinds of stone, you can use different materials in the creation of the aggregate. We can embed stained glass in the aggregate to add a bit of colour or sea shells if you’re looking for a unique, natural feel. Exposed aggregate colours can also be varied by using coloured concrete.
This is an elegant-looking decorative paving that takes advantage of the beauty of natural stone. An aggregate made of natural stone, and in some cases other materials, is batched into concrete and then exposed after the mix is poured. The aggregate can also be seeded into the concrete after pouring and exposed thereafter.
Popular in both residential and commercial applications, exposed aggregate finishes can be seen in patios, swimming pool decks, plazas, driveways and pathways. Whatever the application, homeowners from Sebastopol to Creswick can rely on our expertise to get the job done to the highest standards.
While exposed aggregate finishes are commonly used in outdoor paving, you can have exterior and even interior walls covered in a textured aggregate. As an established concreter Ballarat residents trust, we have done retaining walls, home facades and sound barrier walls with this kind of decorative finish.
