For anyone looking for concrete work, these guys were awesome! They removed and poured a 400 sqft patio and did a great job, for a good price. I wouldn’t recommended anyone else in the area.
Shane was great to work with and checked in with me often regarding decisions. I really appreciated Shane's willingness to save me money by not encouraging me to do unnecessary work and helping me to streamline my project. I would use Shane and his crew's services again and definitely recommend them for any job big or small.
Archaic Concrete Solutions was extremely professional. Always arrived on time and the work is exactly as we were hoping for. Highly recommend!

Concrete Finishes and Textures

Textured concrete finishes range from simple and affordable to elaborate and expensive. Some are easy to create, while others require special skills. 

Stamped concrete

Stamped concrete, commonly referred to as textured or imprinted concrete, is a concrete finish that can resemble brick, slate, flagstone, tile, and even wood. Colour hardener is a popular way of coloring concrete that accentuates the stamped pattern.

Exposed aggregate

An exposed-aggregate surface is obtained by placing concrete and then removing the top layer of cement paste to uncover coarse aggregate. The most popular aggregates are richly colored natural stones such as basalt, granite, quartz, or limestone. But you can also use materials such as recycled colored glass, seashells, and other exciting objects seeded into the surface of the concrete.

Float and trowel finishes

Patterns can be made on the concrete, such as swirls or different sized arcs. The texture created can be coarse, medium, or smooth, depending on the tool used to make the pattern. Wood floats create rougher textures. Aluminum floats or steel trowels create medium or smooth finishes.

Broom finish

Broom finishes can be light or coarse, depending on the bristles of the broom you choose. This is not a fancy finish, but it provides a non-slip surface essential for safety around swimming pools.

While this list does not cover all the options you have, it gives you an idea of what Archaic Concrete Solutions has to offer you. If you have any questions, please contact us. We are here for you!
