We offer eight basic colors beyond our standard smooth, low void (Voids are small holes inherent in all concrete pieces) gray for a small up charge. We can further enhance these colors by changing the texture from smooth to either a sandblasted or an old world finish2. Sandblasting gives the concrete a nice weathered, rough look, great for outdoor pieces. Our Old World style allows our concrete to mimic ancient stone with its nooks and crannies and looks very nice with natural stone like Cantera or Limestone. If you do not see a color here that works for you, bring a sample in and let our very experienced staff create a custom color that meets your needs.
Some things to consider when choosing your color and texture- Concrete, by its very nature, always has minor variations in color and texture. Some pigments and textures will even enhance these variations. When pouring concrete into molds, all the variables, including seasonal effects, interplay to produce a warm, natural looking product. It is one of the reasons why concrete is so often chosen instead of other materials. If consistency is an issue, we suggest choosing white cement based colors or painting the product. Concrete readily accepts most paints and stains.
Photographic images and swatches can only approximate colors. We always try our best to make sure colors are represented correctly, but it is a difficult process. Request a sample to see how it looks in your own environment against your own color backgrounds.
