Firstly, it’s important to know the difference between a patio and alfresco. A patio is an additional part of your home, attached to the house. An alfresco area is an extension of the house, built under the main roof. It lifts the aesthetic value of your home and is a great place to relax with friends and family.

Concrete is always on trend

Polished concrete and acid etch concrete comes in a range of colours to complement your home and the aesthetics of your outdoor area. There are also different levels of exposure, so you have an even more comprehensive choice of the finished product.

The process

A heavy-duty machine equipped with diamond-abrasive grits will grind your concrete down to your desired level. Full exposure goes to the deepest levels, exposing more of the stones. Partial exposure provides a unique salt-and-pepper finish, and nil exposure is a job that should be left to the most experienced professionals like Eco Grind. Finish the job with acid etching to open the pores of the concrete so it absorbs the sealer. You can choose between acrylic, epoxy or polyurethane and you will get a satin or gloss finish.
