Common in municipal and residential applications, a broom finish concrete patio flatwork can be a simple addition for clients looking for a hard surface that gives them function for their outdoor surfaces. It’s simple and usually opted for by clients looking to invest in affordable landscaping solutions.
We also offer clients exposed aggregate concrete flatwork. Exposed aggregate concrete is the exposure of granite and/or marble surface that can be natural or manufactured and is achieved by removing the overlay cement so as to unravel the underlying coarse aggregate, thus giving the final surface product a decorative finish.
