House and shed concrete slabs
As the foundation of any construction, concrete slabs play an integral part of any building or renovation process. A concrete slab forms not just the foundation, but the floor of your new home, workshop, garage or shed. Therefore, the finished product needs to be suited for whatever floor coatings or coverings will be used.
To ensure trouble free durability of all concrete slabs and floors, Highstyle Concreting work to engineer specifications in order to create a strong, well reinforced slab that will support the massive weight of your house, while taking into account the type of soil and the slope of your surrounding land.
Excavation and site preparation
We all know a solid foundation is the most important part of any project. Without properly compacted soil or appropriate sloping and water runoff mitigation, natural settling or weather elements can ruin property and structures. Our experiences with the many different types of soils throughout Queensland and Northern NSW help us to ensure we are able to give you a sturdy base to build upon.
Lets face it, if you live on the Gold Coast, in Brisbane or in the Northern Rivers you probably spend a fair bit of time outside. So why not treat yourself to a new concrete are such as a patio or entertainment area.
In addition to serving as a gathering zone for lounging and entertaining, concrete patios allow homeowners to seamlessly blend interior and exterior living spaces. They are the perfect decorative flooring surface for outdoor kitchens and living rooms, complete with cozy seating areas, fireplaces and water features. What’s more, this outdoor floor offers unlimited design options. When enhanced by stains and integral colors, concrete patios can be color coordinated to match a home’s exterior or landscape. They can also be stamped or engraved in patterns that mimic other popular paving materials, such as brick, flagstone, slate and tile.
Plain and coloured concrete
To really make your new concrete area a stand-out feature in your landscaping, we can add a colour to the concrete mix. Make it subtle, or make it stand out. Concrete can also be kept in its original colour for that traditional look, or worked with specialised tools to create a textured look or increase grip on a sloped driveway.
Affordable and hard wearing, a plain or coloured concrete finish for your driveway or outdoor area is a durable solution for homeowners wanting a simple concrete option with a high quality finish. Choose from traditional light grey colour or match the colour to complement your home and landscape.
Some may think that a concrete driveway sounds old fashioned and boring but your driveway can look amazing, and match your existing colour palette, for a great price!
We can provide you with a high quality plain concrete application to suit your specific driveway design and we will take meticulous care to ensure that all of our work meets the highest of standards. We ensure that all details are considered, such as slab thickness, fall for water run-off, shape, size, site, weather etc. However, a concrete driveway doesn’t have to be the plain grey, uninteresting driveway that most of us remember from our childhood homes. Your driveway is one of the first features that everyone will notice when they arrive at your home or business, so maybe you should consider having a decorative concrete finish added which will increase the street appeal of your home and distinguish it from all the rest.
From pattered driveways, coloured driveways, driveways with different aggregate styles and colours, the choices are endless. A decorative concrete driveway not only adds an extra wow factor to your home but can also increase the value of your home.
Exposed Aggregate Concrete
Exposed aggregate finishes are emerging as beautiful and sturdy architectural paving. The ‘exposed’ surface of exposed aggregate concrete reveals the natural textures of numerous stones like pebble, shells, or silicate and crushed quarry stone.
There are a wide variation of colours and textures of exposed aggregate concrete for you to choose from. You can achieve that prestige classic look which will add style, elegance, grace, increased value to any project. If you have the chosen stone the full depth of the slab you can produce outstanding results to your new or improved concrete pavement areas. Colours can also be tinted to the concrete to ensure your project stands out with its unique look.
