Decorative Concrete Services We Offer

Looking to enhance your driveway, revamp your patio, or set the base for a garden shed? Rhino Builders is at your service, providing top-quality decorative concrete solutions tailored to your needs.

Stamped Concrete

Stamped concrete, also known as imprinted or textured concrete, is a versatile and eye-catching method used to add beauty and character to a regular concrete surface. It is ideal for various applications like patios, driveways, walkways, and pool decks.

The process involves pouring concrete on the surface and impressing patterns and textures into the wet concrete before it hardens. The stamping can mimic the look of many high-end materials such as brick, tile, stone, or wood but at a fraction of the cost.

Adding color to the stamped concrete can further enhance its visual appeal. The coloring can be achieved through different methods like dry-shake color hardeners, integral stains, or post-curing color releases.

With its ability to blend with any landscape design and mimic a wide range of premium materials, stamped concrete provides a cost-effective way to elevate the look and value of any outdoor space.

Exposed Aggregate Polished Concrete

Polished exposed aggregate concrete is a stunning decorative concrete technique that combines the raw beauty of an exposed aggregate surface with the smoothness and shine of polished concrete.

This process involves embedding pebbles, stones, or seashells into the concrete. After the concrete sets, the surface is polished to reveal the natural beauty of the embedded aggregates while also providing a sleek, glossy finish.

This technique balances exposed aggregates’ rustic charm and polished concrete’s modern, clean aesthetic. Ideal for indoor and outdoor applications, polished exposed aggregate concrete provides a visually captivating and durable surface that will elevate any space.

Broom Finish Concrete

Broom finish concrete is a popular and practical finishing technique often used in outdoor applications like driveways, walkways, and patios.

The process involves placing and smoothing the concrete as usual. Then, while the concrete is still wet, a special broom is dragged across the surface. This creates small ridges that provide texture and added slip resistance, making the surface safer, especially in wet conditions.

The beauty of broom-finish concrete lies in its simplicity and functionality. It offers an attractive, clean look to your outdoor spaces while ensuring durability and safety. It’s a timeless and cost-effective solution for any concrete project.

Broom Finish Concrete with Border

Broom finish concrete with border combines the traditional appeal of broom finish concrete with a touch of elegance from added borders.

The process begins with the standard procedure for broom finish concrete — placing, smoothing, and then creating texture on the wet concrete by dragging a broom across the surface. This creates a safe, slip-resistant surface for driveways, walkways, or patios.

What sets this style apart is the addition of a border. Borders can be crafted from various materials such as stamped concrete, colored concrete, or even bricks and stones. The border frames the broom finish concrete, adds an artistic touch, and visually separates different areas.

The outcome is a harmonious blend of functionality and aesthetics, adding a unique charm to your outdoor spaces. It’s a sophisticated and stylish solution for those looking to elevate their traditional concrete surfaces.
