Concrete Patios, Driveways and Floors - created by the MODE CONCRETE experts

This broom finished concrete patio slab, is a project that we recently completed for a client in Lake Country. 

 MODE CONCRETE can help you redo or construct your concrete slab, patio, or pool deck.


Exposed Aggregate: 
Exposed aggregate concrete has a concrete finish, then pressure cleaned to expose the stone at the surface. Great for driveways, entertainment areas and footpaths. 

Stamped, Coloured and Stained Effects:
Stamped concrete, commonly referred to as patterned concrete or imprinted concrete is designed to resemble brick, slate, flagstone, stone, tile and even wood. Stamped concrete can be used for pool decks, driveways, entries, courtyards, and patios. 

Concrete can assume nearly any shape, design, pattern or texture, one of its most distinguishing features of decorative concrete is colour and sheen, whether used subtly to blend with nature or boldly to make a dramatic design statement.  

Acid Staining concrete is a popular application for transforming concrete slabs. Unique outcomes can be achieved by combining colours and application techniques on cement flooring.

Concrete walkways or sidewalks can provide curb appeal to homes and buildings, and are becoming a point of artistic expression by way of a multitude of decorative concrete options. Plain gray concrete is still the most common surface installed; however, we can personalize anything to match your house or personal style. 

Deciding on driveway material is easy: asphalt or concrete. Concrete choices have expanded to include an array of decorative options. Decorative concrete is one of the most reasonable ways to spruce up the entrance to your home.  Although plain gray concrete is still installed most often, more people are catching on to the alluring effects possible with decorative concrete - especially acid staining (our favorite)!

Patios and Floors
Outdoor patios and floors, concrete pool decks, a coloured, textured and inviting area, a safe, slip-resistant deck can be designed for you.  Our decorative specialist can help give as much detail and attention to your patios and floors as the interior design of your home.
