Contech Concrete Services - the specialty concrete experts

Wow! If you want a cool finish on your concrete, check in with Contech Concrete Services, Victoria's decorative concrete leaders


      

    

Contech Concrete Services are high end concreters who polish, grind and seal, timber stamp, acid etch or even pave cut your concrete finish to perfection    

 

There are two options to consider when choosing polished concrete, a grind & seal or a mechanical
polish both options will deliver a hard wearing, low maintenance flooring solution

 

HIGH GLOSS GRIND & SEAL
 

High gloss grind and seal is the most requested indoor flooring solution. A cost effective and efficient application that can change most boring concrete slabs into a hard wearing , resilient and visually stunning centre piece . Have the look of polished concrete with a very low maintenance seamless floor that will enhance the use of the area and provide a lovely natural look to complement almost any design

 

PAVE CUT CONCRETE

 

The look of pavers without the expense and maintenance. If you like the look of pavers but don’t have the time or the budget then check out our pave cut system , we pour the concrete including colour and any boarders or features then saw cut the concrete into squares or diamonds giving the impression the area is paved. Pave Cut Concrete or Pattern Imprinted Concrete is the technique of applying a patterned mat to a wet concrete surface. Designs range from pave cut to brick work, textured stone and many more.

 

TIMBER STAMPED CONCRETE

 

     

 

The best of both worlds - Timber texture matched with the durability of concrete

 

Stamping concrete with a timber patten is just many of the specialist concrete treatments that Contech Concrete offers. Stamping a pattern into your new driveway, path or new landscape project is a great way to add a unique design touch to plain concrete surface. The stamping does need to be added to a new concrete surface, but the list of finishes is quite extensive, be it modern, traditional or contemporary including stone, slate, cobblestone, brick and timber.

 

ACID ETCH CONCRETE

 

The ultimate new floor choice with that aged rustic charm

Does your renovation need a floor that will flow with your country rustic theme, Acid etching is an application applied in the process of a grind and seal, once the concrete has been ground and cleaned the acid can then be applied. This can be one straight colour to give the floor an even presence and tone or a series of burns with different colours to create an aged layer effect. The floor is then sealed with a choice of different levels of gloss sealer to achieve the desired finish
