Our range of decorative concrete includes;

Plain

One of the most common decorative designs, plain concrete can be lightly smoothed with trowel and broom finishes to improve traction. It is the workhorse of our collection. What it lacks in visual design it more than makes up for in quality and longevity.

Coloured concrete

We have an extensive range of colours to choose from, designed specifically to match the surrounding brick, stone or wood of your home. Please contact us for more details on the diverse range of colours we have available.

Custom stencils

Providing the ultimate flexibility in decorative concrete, custom stencils can be tailored to match any theme you envision.

Exposed/Aggregate

Exposed concrete is created by removing the surface of your concrete, leaving the internal aggregates (sand or small stones) exposed. This highlights the natural element of the stone and is an ideal choice for outdoor areas with a heavily exposed finish, perfect for driveways and high foot traffic locations.

Resurfaced

Removing an aged and damaged concrete surface and replacing with a new, rejuvenated finish, can transform a driveway or patio. The facelift of concreting, this will add years in longevity and value to your property.



We also offer Stylepave concrete resurfacing. servicing all Brisbane metropolitan suburbs.

Independently owned and operated by Jace, Jace Decorative Concreting has been in the concrete resurfacing industry for over 15 years, with the knowledge and experience to provide the right advice and quality workmanship for the complete transformation of your living space.

WHAT IS CONCRETE RESURFACING?

The concrete resurfacing system, Stylepave, is a spray on process applying cement based coloured concrete coatings onto your existing concrete to completely transform the appearance.

CONCRETE RESURFACING - THE APPLICATION PROCESS

Stylepave is a spray on, cement based, polymer modified, two part concrete resurfacing system. Its application process involves:

  • Cut all expansion joints along walls and driveway to remove excess debris from concrete

  • Cut existing cracks in concrete in preparation for treatment, if required

  • Grind all imperfections as required

  • High pressure clean, with 4200 PSI, to remove all contaminants

  • Once completely dry, treat cracks with concrete crack mender

  • When mender is cured, grind back to a level finish

  • Spray one coat of polymer primer as a bonding agent

  • Apply one base coat of Stylepave resurfacing cement by use of troweling or squeeging to rectify most imperfections on concrete

  • If your concrete has existing stencil or pattern you must have at least 3 layers of base coat. Pebble crete or exposed aggregate has at least 2 layers of base coat

  • After base coat is applied, all appropriate areas adjacent to the site will be covered to prevent any overspray whilst spray on technique is applied.

  • A stencil or hand taped design will then be laid on the concrete

  • Two top coats of Stylepave resurfacing cement (with your choice of colour) will then be sprayed on. The first coat for coverage and the second coat for textured finish

  • Once final coat is dry, all masking and stencil is removed

  • Resurfaced concrete is then cleaned down to remove residue

  • Lastly, 2 coats of resurfacing sealer will be applied which significantly improves the appearance and value to your premises.


  • WHAT IS A POLYMER MODIFIER?

    A polymer modifier is a liquid substance which, when mixed with cement, increases bonding strength, reduces permeability, increases the flexural, tensile, impact and abrasion strength while improving the overall toughness of the cement.

    WHAT IS A CONCRETE CRACK MENDER?

    Concrete crack mender is a revolutionary two part hybrid urethane for filling cracks. Its MFG for deep penetration into the crack, not like epoxy which can pop out.

    WHAT IS RESURFACING SEALER?

    Resurfacing sealer involves curing to promote durability of the hardened surface coating and aids surface cleaning and maintenance for owners.

Light Exposed Aggregate Concrete



At Jace Decorative Concreting we have a vast range of exposed concrete options available. Exposed aggregate is a decorative concrete that looks as great today as it will tomorrow, with durability and aesthetic value a hallmark of this design style.
Exposed aggregate is the decorative concrete that gives you limitless natural looks with enduring performance.


LIMITLESS DESIGN OPTIONS

If you would like to have that indoor-outdoor connection and a natural look in a hard wearing material, then exposed aggregate is a perfect choice for your driveway, alfresco, path or pool surround. More than that, it will never look like your neighbours so your home will constantly stand out. It will also contrast well with normal concrete and other decorative treatments like stencilling, stamping and coloured concrete.
The level of aggregate exposure can range from heavy to light, depending on the style and design of your project.

PERFORMS FOREVER

Unlike competing sedimentary materials, like sandstone, that are compacted and forced together, exposed aggregate concrete is composed of inert materials bound into homogenous mass. This means exposed aggregate concrete has extremely high compressive strength and abrasion resistance.

Exposed aggregate uses liquid colour and liquid pigments, based on iron oxides, to add colour. This means that the colour completely permeates the concrete, so that even if your surfaces are damaged, the colour will remain and the damage will not stand out. Exposed aggregate concrete also has an automated liquid pigment system for accuracy and traceability
On top of this, exposed aggregate is fade resistant to weather and the sun, including ultraviolet light (UV).

DIFFERENT FINISHES

The limitless range of colours can be enhanced further, using a different finish for added effect. For example, heavy exposure increases slip resistance, which makes it even more suitable for high traffic areas.
In contrast, light exposure reveals the fine aggregates (sand) and a few stones of the coarse aggregate. Or, opt for heavy exposure to reveal more stone, resulting in the aggregate protruding from the concrete surface.

LOW MAINTENANCE

Unlike timber decks, there's no re-oiling needed with exposed aggregate. Nor is there any need to clean discoloured grout, as there is with tiles. Colours are fade resistant and even uncoloured exposed aggregate just needs a hose and a broom every now and again.



Concrete Resealing



At Jace Decorative Concreting we highly recommend you to seal your stencil concrete, coloured concrete and exposed aggregate concrete.
We recommend an acrylic sealer.


WHAT IS AN ACRYLIC SEALER?

Acrylic sealers are the most widely used concrete coating due to their economical pricing, relatively easy application, UV resistant properties, and suitability for recoating. They are often the preferred coating for highly decorative substrates/finishes. The benefits of an acrylic sealer include:

  • Protecting the substrate from the effects of weather and surface abrasion
  • Reducing surface staining, marking and graffiti
  • Enhancing the colour and lustre of the substrate
  • Reducing cleaning and maintenance costs
  • Restricting the flow of lime through concrete surface capillaries
  • Retaining consistent colour in integrally coloured concrete
WHEN SHOULD A SEALER BE REAPPLIED?

The lifespan of a sealer is dependent on the intensity of the abrasion, chemical, and weathering factors that it is subjected to.

On a residential driveway, the first application of an acrylic sealer will last for approximately 2 years. After recoating, the life-span can increase up to 4 years before a further application is required.

In a busy commercial environment, the life-span of an acrylic sealer is approximately 1-2 years before reapplication is required. In contrast, urethane and epoxy sealers will last much longer in commercial environments, with reapplication not normally required until 4 years after the initial application.

Penetrating sealers vary but will generally require re-sealing every 3-5 years, depending on exposure to weather, pollutants, and the volume of foot traffic.

Before any sealing application is applied, the floor must be acid washed and pressure cleaned with a 4000 psi gerni with powerhead. At Jace Decorative concreting this procedure is included in the cost of the resealing application.
