Broom finishing is an option for decorative concrete that also requires an element of timing. The effect is achieved by using brooms with bristles in order to make a streaked or brushed look over the concrete.

Having a professional available to make sure that the design is executed properly will go a long way in the outcome of your design. Broom finishing is very popular for outdoor living spaces like patios and decks.
Exposed concrete options are great for driveways and walkways because they add a layer of stability. The exposed aggregate might make your surface more slip resistant so that your family can be safe during rainy or icy weather. There are lots of reasons to choose exposed concrete, including the customization options that are available to you. You can choose what colors or types of rocks will be in the aggregate and that will show through the concrete.
Overlays are an inexpensive option for creating looks and designs over concrete that is used both indoors and outdoors. Overlays are designs that are basically applied to the surface of the concrete using an adhesive. These overlays will sometimes need repair and do require regular maintenance in order to keep up the look of the design. They can be very thin or very thick.
