Frequently Asked Questions
All about Printed Concrete
How long will it take to complete the installation?
Dependant upon the size of printed concrete project we average between 7 to 10 days. Weather conditions and waiting for the concrete to cure may add up to 7 additional days.
Will you work on our project continuously from start to finish?
Yes, we stay on one job at a time. We will leave the concrete in a clean and walkable state for 7 days whilst the concrete cures and then return to seal and finish off. ( on a warm & dry day)
Can you provide work examples for us to view?
Yes we can and we always recommend you view some of our clients maybe even have a chat with them and get a better idea of our work. We will provide you with post codes etc.
What depth is installation?
This depends on the ground conditions we come across. We need to accommodate the imprinted concrete slab which is usually 100mm-125mm thick for a standard driveway. This needs to be laid on a solid sub base.The mot type 1 sub base can be anywhere between 150mm thick on unstable ground to making use of an existing solid , suitable existing base.
Will access to the house be available?
When planning any installation access is one of the primary considerations. Even though the imprinted concrete can be walked on the next day we aim to keep the inconvenience to a minimum.There are a number of options available, including the temporary removal of a neighbour’s fence panel or using planks which would be set up securely between a doorway and a firm piece of ground. There is always a solution!
How many patterns are available?
We can offer over a dozen different basic patterns, including over six types of cobble. These patterns can then be used in multiple ways and with numerous border edging combinations.
