Concrete Resurfacing Custom Stone Pacific Pines

Custom Natural Stone Concrete Resurfacing Pacific Pines

Project Description

Location: Pacific Pines, Qld
Project Size: 65sqm

This is the next generation of our “Stockholm Stone” finish. We’ve decided to market things a bit more effectively into design areas, so although this is an evolution of that named design, it is categorised into our “Natural Stone” finishing.

…..I need another beer or two to swallow that shit. Basically, this is one of our frigging awesome, stone custom designs we provide our clients.

In this circumstance, it has been finished in French Grey toning with natural lines, pure white blending with Blue Mountain decorations, all entwined into a Midnight Blue 60mm border.

We customise this finish through several different tonal standpoints. Each of these designs are priced per project and require a sit down meeting to go through everything that we can provide.

This is our art. It is more than work to us. So humble, lucky and happy to be able to combine the two.

Thank you so much for your business Yusuf, we wish you the very best for the future and hope you love you new driveway.

Patching the Concrete Crack Pacific Pines

Quality Over Quantity – Crappy Little Crack

Project Description

Location: Pacific Pines, Qld
Project Size: 6sqm 🙂

If you follow along with what we’re up to, you’ll probably recognise this project from about a month ago that we completed for a lovely client over at Pacific Pines. We installed a really nice exposed aggregate in a light expose, prodominately white stone colouring and it came out great!….except for whatever reason, this corner decided to open up a little into a hairline crack the very next day.

At first I put it down to maybe the corner being a little soft for new concrete, although it didn’t appear to be when prepping. Then given the month break in between returning to rectify, the crac had not opened up nor extended through the concrete entirely just remaining a surface scale hairline crack. More annoying than anything.

Now most of the time, a crack in concrete is just unfortunate. There is nothing we do as concreters to stop concrete from cracking, we only endeavour to control the cracking. Where, how far, to what degree. On this circumstance though, with it opening up the very next day and being in a position that would be visible on a constant basis, I offered some rectifying options to our clients, because at the end of the day, we are here to provide the best quality products and service we can, and this just simply wasn’t good enough.

After advising that I was reluctant to simply cut this section of concrete out and replace it, fearing the same crack may happen again due to the gravity pull down hill at the corner, I suggested we firstly firm the corner up more with an under poured pier, then grind out the crack filling with silica sand and epoxy as we do all patching with, then of course applying a concrete resurfacer in the area to cover it all up, utilising what we were doing to create a pathway down the steps and through the area so it all made sense.

Now for me, if I’m going to go to all the trouble for this one small little damn crack, I’m going to get a little creative and do something custom over the top, not just so my client is happy, but so I also get a little satisfaction for what we have acheived…..along with the chance to show off one of our new designs we haven’t put onto the concrete canvas much as yet.

Our client’s eye was caught with our new “Stockholm Stone” design, which is our sandstone styled design in modern French Grey toning.

So this is what we came up with, not only a lovely new patio area in white stone exposed aggregate concrete, but a custom, one of a kind pathway as well that only our client and ourselves will know the true meaning of…..and I guess anyone reading this as well….so basically just her and I because I doubt these jibberish posts are worth passing the first sentence.

Thanks Leigh and Jeff, you guys are awesome and I hope we get a chance to catch up again in the future. All the best for now.

On The Black Top

Project Description

Location: Rochedale, Qld
Project Size: 160sqm

First job back after our break, nice one to slide into for limited stress. Pretty straight forward trowel down and spray, single colour CCS Coal with CCS Silver Birch and Graphite flecking.

Our client here is firstly fixing up a pretty messy concrete install, along with creating a new basketball court for her children. Tarmac Black Top with to-be painted white lines. Might pop up for a basket or two before I get too old to play anymore.

Thanks Tracy, see you on your next refurbish project.

Beach and Sand inspired concrete resurfacing Ormiston

Patio Beach Inspired Concrete Resurface Ormiston

Project Description

Location: Ormiston, Qld
Project Size: 25sqm

Little baby job just completed today up at Ormiston. We quoted and won this project off the back of one of our custom sandstone projects up there, with this client also having sandstone paving around thier pool, but wanting to tone it down a bit to not over power the pool surrounds. So we just completed their project in the same colour toning, but leaving out the swirling and blending, bring it more into a beach style lead up to the sandstone around the pool.

We’re completely burnt out at the moment and in dire need of a break. Our clients here not only showed a lot of respect and appreciating waiting on us in the first place to complete their work, but again this week with out schedule being delayed getting their project to completion.

Thank you Moore family and all the best for the coming future.

We managed to get this project finished off this week. We’re literally losing track of days here, 7 days are quite fine to work, but after 7 weeks of it….enough is enough, we need a holiday.

Lovely little project for a great couple down at Robina here. Old, worn out resurfacing was ground back to bare concrete, typical patching of cracking followed by a custom, off set tile application with a 45deg joiner for the L shape intersection. Finished colours…

Base: Almond
Main: Coal
Flecks: Almond / Graphite (mid nozzle, minor application)

Thanks for your work guys and all the best with you new relax area!

A full grind back of the existing surface to bare concrete, along with epoxy patching to the cracking throughout, then completed with the following colours.

Base: White
Main: French Grey
Borders / Inserts: Midnight Blue

Concrete Resurfacing Upgrade in Bonogin

Project Description

Location: Bonogin, Qld
Project Size: 150sqm

With the Easter break last weekend coninciding with no access to do anything fun, my wife and I decided to bring one of our clients forward and work the weekend, making it quite productive. We’re only a 2 person show for this, so social distancing was not a worry.

Plain concrete house surrounds here for our client, starting at the driveway, parking area at the side and pathways right around the house. The project was finished in CCS Coal with Ocean Sand and Graphite flecking.

Thanks Greg and all the best with your shoulder.

Custom concrete resurfacing Stormy Skies Arundel

Stormy Skies Custom Concrete Resurfacing Arundel

Project Description

Location: Arundel, Qld
Project Size: 190sqm

5 months. Our client make initial contact in November 2019, at a time when we had stopped doing quotes / inspections for the remainder of the year because we simply didn’t have the time anymore before Christmas. We then re-contacted them in January, inspected and priced their project, seeing us turn up towards the end of March to start, and finishing around the start of April with some minor weather delays. Man we have some awesome, and patient, clients!

On first inspection of this site, our customer was interested in one of our custom designs and as soon as we walked in, we knew it had to be Stormy Skies. The dark tones on the residence, dark timber pool decking, the colours, the angles, everything shouted Stormy Skies. So after only a little deliberation, we set some dates for when we could start.

The old pattern on a lot of the concrete was an aged, wet stencil design that was ground down sufficiently, then double base coated to remove the old pattern completely. The remainder of the concrete areas received patching of the cracks where needed, along with just regular cleaning and base coating applications.

The whole areas really created quite a design problem in how to pull it off exactly. Although the section between the pool and residence seems quite wide, it is split in half by a channel drain with silver grate, so no matter which way we look at it, I couldn’t simply work the pattern across it, so this split that section into two smaller sections, kind of like two pathways.

The remainder of the pool was also basically pathways around the outside, then culminating in the area near the stairs which was full width about 8m x 5m.

From here, the pattern twisted it’s way through a skinny 1.0m pathway which then opened right up into the carport area, which was completely open, unbroken by any interance, but caged in from walls all around.

What I did with the taped angles, was get a little busier than I usually like with this design around the pool, to accommodate the tighter areas, I kept this busyness as it ran through the lead up to the stairs as change would have looked way out of place, zig zagged through the pathway then allowed the design to open up more freely when we hit the carport section, allowing the design to flow more.

A couple of small changes saw 18mm tape being used for the lines instead of 12mm, which I think really allows for more dramatic section changes, along with the “Natural” colour swirling being pulled back in a little bit to a tighter decoration, more leaning towards a “ripple” effect as opposed to a “cloudy” effect as we’re primarily around a pool.

I guess you can say I took the design in more of a water feel then a sky feel in this situation.

I really love customising these designs to suit areas, the colours do all the talking and the little details make for interesting talking points.

Thank you very much to our clients on this project. Not only waiting 5 months, but just being freaking awesome people all throughout is such a pleasure to be involved with.

Concrete Hardscape Refurbishment Gold Coast

Concrete Extensions and Resurfacing Willowvale

Project Description

Location: Willowvale, Qld
Project Size: Multiple Area

We started out here extended the driveway about 500mm on the side to mark parking and exiting the vehicle a bit easier. Probably not something the layman really see’s, but peers will notice the time and effort put into aggregate matching along with the time put into the exposure rate to try and make both sections look as uniform as possible.

Next we extended the rear patio, then returned a few weeks later to resurface the old aggregate patio, along with the new concrete we installed.

Patio completed with Truffle base, Riversand main with Off White, Truffle and Fraser flecking in a 600mm uniform tile pattern.

Thanks for your business guys and all the best with for the foreseeable future.
