What Is Plain Concrete
Plain or standard concrete is a base mixture of sand and granite that is combined with water and a cement mix. The cement itself is made up of a number of ingredients which includes: calcium, silicon iron and aluminium.
Once this mixture is added to water, it creates a chemical reaction which is a process that is called hydration. This is the process that hardens the concrete.
Uses for plain concrete, what are they?
Plain concrete is the term for your standard concrete mix, no additives, just plain. And its a very versatile product, as I’m sure you’re aware. It’s pretty much everywhere.
Unless you’re after a unique look or style, like a pattern, coloured or aggregate finish you can pretty much use plain concrete anywhere you like. The good old concrete slab for either a house or a carriage or a shed is a good example of where you would use a plain finish, but having said that, let’s take a look at a few examples.

Concreting your driveway is a pretty standard way to use concrete, its also a way to add some practicality to the front of your home. There are other materials you can use, but concrete is one if not the best to use.
Adding concrete also adds value to your home and that sense of security as well, as a gravel or dirt driveway can be unsafe, and it doesn’t look that great either.
An unstable surface when wet can cause all sorts of issues, so if your on the hunt for a front yard that provides the looks and the safety aspect, concrete is the go.
When it comes to concreting your driveways yes you can use plain concrete, but to be fair, there are other options as well like coloured, pattern and aggregate concrete styles.
If you’re looking for a Launceston concreting expert, give us a call, we have done many driveways in all sizes which allows us to provide you with our professional and expert opinion on all things driveways.
Footpaths And Concreting Around The House.
A path or a section around your home is another way you can use plain concrete effectively. If you’re after a cost-effective solution, plain concrete might be the best option for you, especially if you’re after a straight forward concrete path or a section around the house that you want to seal off, plain concrete would be an ideal option.
Again when it comes to anywhere that you walk, safety becomes a concern, especially for the elderly and maybe the kids. You want to have a walkway that feels secure and stable on the feet, and concrete is the ideal solution for that.
Having said that, like the driveway you have options on the style you want to go for, but plain concrete is the one to go for if you’re after a budget option.
If you do want to go for a pattern, aggregated or a coloured look, we can help you there as well.
Now, this is where you would only look at a plain finish as there is no need even to entertain the idea of any other finish, especially when it comes to a concrete slab for a home build.
We can help you with any commercial or residential slab finish or a new shed, patio or even a garage foundation. We can advise and quote you on getting the job done.
The only time a features concrete finish would be advised is a patio area, you could look at several other finishes for a patio if you wanted to. Again you can talk to us if you have any concerns on what would be the best finish for a specific area.
