This Patio was a revamp and extension of an existing space to accommodate a larger number of people and the inclusion of a pizza oven within the client's outdoor entertaining area.   Hard work by the client's at the start of this project saw them personally remove all the worn and tired outdoor pavers, as well as dig out and level the space ready for the new concrete slab. 

The client's requested a polished concrete look with the added inclusions of River Stones and Blue Gems to give the final look a few distinct highlights.

Blue metal aggregate with a strength of 32 MPA was poured, placed and finished with the help of Cuttin Edge Concreting.  When finishing this slab it was all in the detail to ensure the final polished product would stand out.  Finishing this slab the aggregate needed to be even through the surface,  ensuring no imperfections or marking from finishing with river stones and blue gems seeded in the top layer with even coverage & depth.

The grinding process removed the top layer of concrete to show a balance of exposed aggregate the full length of the patio with beautiful Blue Gems & River Stones being highlighted throughout.   This level of stone exposure is known as Full Exposure.

The exposed concrete floor was then grouted to fill in any pin holes and fine lines that existed in the concrete, to produce a smooth level surface.   The concrete floor was then polished to a Matte Finish,  and finished with two coats of penetrating sealer making it stain and slip resistant.

The end product is a beautiful polished concrete patio that seamlessly transitions between the old undercover area with the new outdoor area that incorporates the client's new pizza oven.    A great functional entertaining space that is stain and slip resistant,  hard wearing and low maintenance for them to enjoy.

This polished concrete floor was polished using the PYRAFloor Polishing System.  This system is a process which hardens and protects and seals the concrete floor for durability, long lasting, low maintenance space which is slip resistant and stain resistant.
