- Exteriors

With multiple external finishes on offer, there is sure to be one to suit your space. At CS Concrete Polishing, we offer honed concrete, pavilion concrete, Quartz overlays and more. Get in touch to discuss which option will best suit your needs.

Honed Concrete is a finish that is recommended for outdoor areas such as driveways, footpaths, porches and entertaining spaces. It has a penetrating sealer applied which protects the concrete and helps to prevent staining. Unlike a grind and seal, this sealer is absorbed into the concrete making honed concrete a more enduring option for outdoor use.

A pavilion finish begins by grinding back the concrete to expose the stone underneath. We then acid etch for a non-slip finish and apply a penetrating sealer for a durable finish. This option if great for alfrescos and pool areas where slip resistance is important.

Quartz Carpet is an overlay option for your external spaces. It comes in a range of colours, and offers a great slip resistance. This product is recommended where there are existing tile or damaged concrete that cannot be polished.


Whether looking at a renovation or new build, we can assist with the creation of a striking driveway which adds broad street appeal, while being the most practical of all outdoor finishes.

Pool areas

We offer various finishes that will add another dimension to your outdoor entertaining and pool areas. With non-slip finishes you can safely extend your living spaces and blur the lines between inside and out.

Outdoor areas

Polished Concrete is an ideal solution to enhance design and functionality of any outdoor area. Whether it's a front entrance to impress, or side paths and access ways, polished concrete can be incorporated into your landscape design to create beautiful synergy between home & yard.

Pavilion Finish

A pavilion finish offers great slip resistance and is a recommended finish for pool areas. The acid-etching brings through the stone profile for a textured surface, providing more grip than a honed finish.

CS Hystone

When honed and pavilion finishes won't work, Hystone is a great overlay option. Using coloured aggregate, this product offers slip resistance and can be applied over existing surfaces.
