Decorative Concrete New Westminster

When it comes to decorative concrete, the options are almost endless, especially with the many years of experience Iron Trident concrete contractors have in decorative concrete. Let us help you bring the outside of your home to life. There are many decorative styles. A colourful stamped concrete look may be one option, or if you like more of a rocky look, exposed aggregate or a light sandblast may be the option for you. All of these styles can come in different colours. There are a couple of ways to have the concrete coloured. Most times the colour is added before the concrete arrives on site. Another approach would be to acid stain; this method is the process in which the top layer of the concrete is coloured. Colours also look great with a float finish or smooth finish. In addition to a float or smooth finish, decorative concrete saw cuts could be used to create borders, separation between colours, and different styles of finish and even different shapes or designs. Decorative concrete is one of our specialties. We welcome any new project.

Concrete Walkways New Westminster

Decorative concrete walkways are a great option if you do not have a drive-way or are looking to replace existing walkways/pathways around your house. Our concrete contractors can deliver creative, and unique layouts and designs for your new concrete walkway. You can choose from a simple broom finish, a contemporary smooth finish, exposed aggregate with multiple curves, stamped with borders and colours. You can choose a mix of the options listed above. If a grade change is a factor, our concrete contractors can also construct risers to create concrete stairs if needed or desired.

Exposed Aggregate New Westminster

Exposed aggregate concrete has a highly durable surface, and is a great option for avoiding seeing as much surface damage that can be caused by things like exposure to rain. Typical driveways or walkways show this damage much easier, whereas it is much less evident in exposed aggregate. Exposed aggregate is different from the other styles of concrete finishes because the top layer of the concrete gets washed away, or sandblasted off exposing the rock beneath. We always aim for the cleanest method of exposing our aggregate. However it is sometimes not practical to wash, so we must use the sandblast method, which can be quite messy. We suggest that small plants or flowers be re-planted until the exposing work is complete and that the final stages of exterior work on a new-build take place after the exposing is complete. To protect your exposed aggregate, we suggest sealing it a couple of weeks after it is poured. For this, we use a penetrating sealer and a high gloss sealer.

Concrete Walls New Westminster

Concrete walls are often used for structural reasons, like retaining the earth when the grade is steeper. Our concrete contractors are highly experienced in all structural aspects. We start by excavating to make sure our concrete footings are low enough for proper strength and support of the wall, and this often includes pouring on top of screw piles. The walls are then poured on these footings. The footings are low enough so that they will not be seen after the final grading. A good portion of the wall may be above the final grade. Our concrete walls can come in multiple different styles. The most common style is a paper face finish, or a light sandblast — both giving a modern, contemporary look.
