Transform any old or new concrete into a beautiful and practical finish.
Pavilion finish (acid etched) concrete is a fantastic durable non-slip alternative suitable for any indoor or outdoor area whether it be a:
- Pool surround
- Garden path
- Car port.
A Pavilion Finish can transform any old or new concrete into a beautiful and practical finish. The end result is a flat modern exposed aggregate look without giving you any sharp uncomfortable pain underfoot, which is generally felt with exposed aggregate.
We grind the concrete to a level we refer to as full stone exposure and then smooth it off to remove the scratches.
We then proceed to acid etch the concrete, washing out 1-2mm of the matrix around the aggregate which aids in its non-slip properties as well as giving its exposed aggregate resemblance.
We use the same premium grade penetrating sealers that we use with mechanically polished concrete on our pavilion finish. This ensures it does not sit on top of the concrete like regular topical sealers which can become slippery when wet, and aids in giving our pavilion finish its non-slip characteristics.
