At Pattern Concrete Surfacing UK, we specialise in Stencil Design Concrete installations. It’s a specialist method of decorative concrete installation which gives a more up market appearance at no extra cost. We can be more creative with stencils as some of our images will show. A simple, effective method which requires imagination and skill to create master class driveways and patios.
Choose from our unique selection of Stencil Designs from European Fan to our traditional Cobblestone, a customer favourite. Our stencil products are an effective way to create a completely non-slip surface giving a unique grout finish replicating a natural stone/block driveway for a fraction of the cost.
Once you’ve selected your Stencil Design and your preferred colour options our professional concrete finishers and groundwork team begin by digging out the driveway or patio area, ready for the sub-base of hardcore to be installed. We remove all debris from site and commence by laying a generous amount of hardcore and compacting the whole area. Our team will then create the shape of your desired perimeter using 4inch deep timber and PVC taking into consideration the levels required to assure that the concrete can be poured to a level height, giving around a 10% fall to help drainage also installing ACO drains and soak-aways where needed.
Once all the preparation work has been completed we can then begin installing the Concrete. We use steel reinforcements to add strength to the concrete by installing the Steel Bars or Grids whilst the Concrete is being poured. Once the area has been filled we then screed the Concrete to the levels created earlier in the process. Once the concrete is completely smooth we apply Our Unique Stencil by positioning it across the concrete and rolling it in deep enough to allow the Stencil to stay in place.
The Colour Hardener Mix chosen from our many options is then spread across the Concrete ‘above’ the stencil completely covering the area so that only the colour chosen is visible. We then trowel the colour hardener into the concrete whilst the stencil is still in place giving the area a nice even, smooth look.
After some time the concrete will begin to set, we then remove the Stencil revealing your wonderful new look.
After a period of at least 24 Hours expansion gaps are cut into the concrete normally running through the grout pattern when possible so it’s as least visible as possible. The reason for this process is to prevent any cracks caused by movement in the ground.
Once the area has been thoroughly cleaned and all dust, debris and mess has been cleared we apply our Universal Sealer which helps protect the concrete and keeps the colour looking fantastic leaving a gloss finish.
Finally you can sit back and enjoy your new Driveway or Patio installed by the “Best in the Business”.
