If you’re searching for a low-maintenance, long-lasting solution for your home or business that has a modern look, honed concrete is the way to go. Honed concrete is meant to be used outside and is regarded as the equivalent of polished concrete indoors.

The procedure is suitable for most homes, businesses, and public access facilities, as it can be used on honed concrete pool surrounds as well as a honed concrete driveway. Mason Concreting provides a honing service on the Lower North Shore that leaves your concrete with a long-lasting yet attractive finish.

Grind and Seal Concrete

What’s Involved? 

Concrete honing is the act of removing the top layer of concrete and exposing the aggregate beneath. A sealant is then applied to the surface, giving it a non-slip quality. The procedure has some similarities to concrete polishing, but it typically requires less labour and therefore, comes out to be less expensive.

The end result is a low-sheen, natural-appearing surface. Those who want the contemporary look of visible aggregate and still want to walk on a smoother surface can appreciate this finish.

Mason Concreting in the Lower North Shore handles not only the concrete installation but also the concrete honing process in one phase. Alternatively, we may revitalize an existing concrete area by honing it. 

When picking a color for concrete or exposed aggregate, we have a wide selection of decorative concrete mixes to pick from when honing concrete. We can choose from several lovely concrete mixes as approved installers for Geostone by Holcim, including different base colors and stone types.

Honed concrete has a contemporary look that is ideal for homes and businesses on the Lower North Shore. Surprise your guests with a beautiful concrete floor that’s easy to maintain and long-lasting. The paths around your pool and garden, as well as the walkway and driveway, are common places to hone concrete.

Low Maintenance

Honed concrete has a smooth, matte finish that hides dirt and dust rather than reflecting it, so it requires less cleaning. Increase the amount of time you spend in your house or business rather than cleaning it.

Non-Slip Surface

Honed concrete surfaces may be sealed for a non-slip finish, making them ideal for high-traffic areas. To provide a secure environment for your family or for the honed concrete driveway to keep everyone safe when it’s wet, add honed concrete pool surrounds.


Honed concrete is a more durable alternative that may endure a lot of foot traffic. It also protects against the elements’ extremes.

The process of concrete honing is relatively simple. We use equipment with abrasive pads to grind away the top layer of concrete, exposing the aggregate underneath. We follow this up with a layer of sealant that offers protection from staining and wear as well as a non-slip additive if required.

Yes! Most driveways can be honed to revitalise the area and create a new stylish entrance to your home.
This is the most commonly asked question. The simple answer is that polished concrete is for internal areas, while honed concrete is for external areas. Honed concrete is the same initial process as polished concrete. The polished concrete process then goes on to grout, densify, buff and polish to create a perfect smooth and seamless finish.
Honed concrete is a smooth matte like surface and is easier on the feet than exposed aggregate or pavers. Our team can add a slip resistant sealant at the end of the process to help ensure your new driveway or pool surround is safe. However, due to the grit level used in the honing process, this is often unnecessary as the finish already has a high slip resistant rating.
Not only does honed concrete look great, but it is easy to maintain. All that is required is a sweep and a light hose. For long term maintenance, a deep high pressure clean and reapplication of sealer can be completed every few years.
Just like when selecting coloured concrete or exposed aggregate, there are a range of polished concrete mixes available that we can hone. We have a range of concrete suppliers we source our mixes from to bring you the widest range possible. Contact us today to receive the latest range charts.
It will depend on the size of the area, but for around 50-100 m2, we generally allow two days to complete the honing. Sealing will take place at a later stage once the area has settled and this process will take one day.

Rather than engaging two separator contractors, we can lay the concrete and complete the honing. This allows us to offer our clients affordable packages. Compared to other materials such as cobblestones and pavers which require a concrete blinding slab to be laid underneath, the cost per m2 is often lower. 

The exact price per m2 for honed concrete will depend on the desired concrete mix.

All our services are offered to properties in the Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore, Sydney area.
