Honed or Polished Concrete
Lifestyle Surfaces when only the best will do
Contemporary Surfaces supplies the finest honed and polished concrete surfaces within Perth. From a honed concrete driveway to a polished concrete house slab, we offer a complete solution from the earthworks and site preparation through to the grinding, honing and polishing and then sealing of the surface. If you want LED lights installed into the concrete we can arrange this for you. We offer a complete turn-key solution. Polished or Honed Concrete are the ultimate surfaces for both indoor and outdoor applications creating a stylish and contemporary look.
Honed concrete is created by laying the decorative concrete in the same way as the exposed aggregate but then the top surface is honed flat. This brings a consistency of stones displayed and a smooth flat surface to create a real statement. The honed concrete is then sealed with 2 coats of a quality sealer (call to discuss options). Honed concrete is suitable for a wide variety of uses such as driveways and pathways. Honed concrete is extremely popular for use in alfresco and front entry points as it is a real statement piece and where first impressions count.
Polished concrete is similar to honed concrete but is primarily used indoors. It requires the additional processes where the surface is grouted and polished and then sealed. Polished concrete is able to be polished to a mirror finish or a less slippery light polish if required. Different amounts of polishing is a vailable depending on the application and your requirements.
Polished concrete floors are a great way to reduce allergies caused by dust mites. It has benefits for people suffering from asthma or allergies. They also reduce toxic build up in your home by comparison to wall to wall carpet which has been found to accumulate environmental toxins walked in on the soles of shoes, eventually creating toxic loads many times higher than the surrounding environment outside the house.

All of Contemporary Surfaces Liquid Limestone jobs include galvanized mesh to help minimize the risk of cracks appearing. We use high quality mesh and use a galvanized version for Liquid limestone. The porosity of the liquid limestone can mean that if non galvanized mesh is used, rust may appear over time.
