Honed Concrete

Honed Concrete

Honed Concrete is a finish which is great for outdoor areas and for those who are fond of the matte finish. This finish is typically recommended for outdoor areas such as footpaths, porches, around pools, concrete flooring in balconies, flat or low gradient driveways and any type of outdoor sitting and entertaining area.

Honed concrete is suitable for both indoor and outdoor areas. If you are looking for an attractive matte finish for your floor then this is the perfect choice as it is slip resistant when wet, very durable, low maintenance and aesthetically pleasing. It is for these reasons that this is one of only two forms of polished concrete recommended for uncovered outdoor areas with the other being the “Grind And Seal Finish”. The honed concrete finish is a great choice for outdoor locations such as entertainment areas, porches, driveways of flat or low gradient, pool areas, pathways and alike.

There is no choice of gloss level available with this honed concrete finish as it is totally matte. However you will be able to choose the level of stone / aggregate exposure you would like which is offered in 3 levels, salt & pepper exposure, hit & miss exposure or full stone exposure. If you choose the more refined full stone exposure, we will have to grout the floor which will be an added cost.

Once the honing process is completed a penetrating sealer is applied. Unlike the topical sealer used in the “Grind A Seal Finish” , this penetrating sealer is absorbed into the honed concrete, blocking all the pores helping to prevent staining. Because the penetrating sealer does not remain on the surface of the concrete, it will not scratch or scuff and will provide a long lasting finish for the long term.  

LOWER COST

The initial service costs are somewhat lower than some of the other polished concrete options.

LOW MAINTENANCE

The nature of the surface and low porosity level means that less effort is required to keep the floor clean.

DURABILITY

Polished concrete flooring is extremely durable and hard wearing. When correctly maintained, they will outlast any other floor covering for many years to come.

BACTERIA RESISTANT

Surface is non-porous and will not harbour bacteria which in turn is a healthy environment.

OUTDOOR OPTIONS

There are outdoor options available in a UV stable finish to stop yellowing over time and we also have anti-slip sealers to match slip rating.
