Honed concrete floors have become increasingly popular in recent years, featuring in many lifestyle magazines as one of the architectural highlights of a residential home or commercial properties. Furthermore, compared to the other types of flooring, both polished and honed concrete are low maintenance and highly sustainable. These factors are the main catalysts for Honed Concrete’s growing fame among homeowners and interior design enthusiasts alike. Exposed aggregate that has been honed is a perfect option for internal or external decorative concrete features. In addition, honed concrete provides superior strength and durability while also producing an elegant smooth finish.
The combination of specially formulated decorative concrete mixes and high-quality workmanship ensures a concrete surface that is smooth, durable and low maintenance.
When selecting the style of your honed concrete, it’s important to consider longevity and the future of your home or workspace. Honed concrete is a cost-effective, durable, decorative concrete finish that is designed to last for a significant amount of time. Therefore, it’s vital that the colour and design you select today will remain as classy elegant in 20 years as it does today.
The HAWK CFC team is well-trained and fully equipped to install quality, long lasting honed concrete surfaces throughout Perth and Western Australia.
WHAT IS HONED CONCRETE?
Honed concrete is achieved through progressive diamond grinding of a concrete surface. This process can be employed in two different ways. First, it can be used to simply clean and level the surface latency. Or it can be taken further to expose aggregates.
In either case, concrete sealers are then used to protect the surface. These sealers give the concrete its matte, satin or gloss finish, and they can also contain anti-slip additives.
Honing is actually one of the first steps toward creating a fully polished concrete surface. Once the initial concrete mix has been laid, it’s first allowed to set. After this, the grinding process begins, during which the top layer of concrete is removed. Depending upon the type of mix used, this may expose the aggregates in the concrete.
The grinding continues until the desired honed appearance is achieved. At this stage, the surface is power-washed and sealed. Different types of sealants achieve different results – including penetrating sealers, enhancing sealers and acrylic sealers. Our team will work with you to determine which type of sealant is best-suited to your needs and aesthetic preferences.
