Honed concrete is the way to go if you’re looking for a low-maintenance, long-lasting option with a modern aesthetic for your home or company. Honed concrete is intended for outdoor use and is considered the interior equal of polished concrete. 

Because it can be used on honed concrete pool surrounds as well as a honed concrete driveway, the method is suited for most residences, companies, and public access facilities. On the Northern Beaches, Mason Concreting offers a honing service that gives your concrete a long-lasting but aesthetic surface.

Grind and Seal Concrete

What’s Involved?
The act of removing the top layer of concrete and revealing the aggregate beneath is known as “concrete honing.” After that, a sealer is placed on the surface to make it non-slip. Although the method is comparable to concrete polishing, it is simpler and less expensive. 

It has a natural-looking appearance with a low-sheen surface. This finish is ideal for those who desire the modern aesthetic of visible aggregate while walking on a smoother surface.

Mason Concreting on the Northern Beaches can take care of both the concrete installation and the concrete honing in one go. Alternatively, we may hone an existing concrete area to rejuvenate it.

When it comes to choosing a colour for concrete or exposed aggregate, we have a large selection of decorative concrete mixes to choose from. As licensed installers for Geostone by Holcim, we have a variety of beautiful concrete mixes to pick from, including several base colours and stone types.

Honed concrete is a terrific option for any Northern Beaches homeowner or business owner looking for a modern aesthetic design for their property. The finish is ideal for high-traffic areas since it resists dirt and dust accumulation and is easy to clean. The following are the most common uses for concrete honing:

Concrete Patio Contractors

Businesses and homes on the Northern Beaches often opt for a honed concrete patio, walkways and footpaths. The matte finish gives the area a clean, well-kept look, and the strength of the concrete means that your patios, walkways and footpaths will last for years.

Modern Appearance

Honed concrete grinding provides a modern design that is perfect for Northern Beaches homes and businesses. Surprise your guests with a stunning concrete floor that is both easy to care for and long-lasting. Footpaths throughout your pool and garden, as well as the walkway and driveway, are popular places for concrete honing.

Low Maintenance

Honed concrete has a smooth, matte texture that hides dirt and dust instead of reflecting it, making it easier to keep clean. Rather than cleaning your home or business, increase the amount of time you spend enjoying them.

Non-Slip Surface

Honed concrete can be sealed to make it non-slip, making it perfect for high-traffic areas. Add honed concrete pool surrounds to give a secure environment for your family or to the honed concrete driveway to keep everyone safe when it’s wet.


Honed concrete is a more long-lasting option that can withstand a lot of foot traffic. It also defends against the extremes of the weather. Grind and seal concrete has a protective layer that defends against deterioration.

On the Northern Beaches, Mason Concreting is a pioneer in concrete honing, which turns hard surfaces into long-lasting and exquisite floor coverings. Outside, concrete honing is what we do.

Concrete honing is a rather simple process. We grind away the top layer of concrete with abrasive pads on machinery to uncover the aggregate beneath. To make the floor more stain and wear resistant, we put on a layer of sealer. If necessary, we also put on some kind of non-slip compound.

Yes! Almost every driveway may be honed to revitalize the area and provide a beautiful new entryway to your home.

This is the question that gets asked the most. In a nutshell, polished concrete is used for interiors while honed concrete is used for exteriors. For honed concrete, the first technique is the same as for polished concrete. 

However for polished concrete, things like grouting and densifying are done, as well as buffing and finally polishing, to make the perfect smooth surface and seamless finish.

Honed concrete has a smoother, more matte finish than exposed aggregate or pavers, making it more comfortable to walk on. Slip-resistant sealer will be put on at the end of the process to make sure your new driveway or pool surrounds are safe even when they are wet.
Honed concrete is not only beautiful, but it’s also easy to keep clean. All that is required for upkeep is a sweep and a light hose. Long-term care can include a deep-pressure clean and a reapplication coat of sealer every few years.
Just as with coloured concrete or exposed aggregate, there are a variety of polished concrete mixes to choose from. We work with a range of concrete suppliers to provide you with the most options. Contact us right now to get the latest, up-to-date mix charts.
We usually allow two days to complete the sharpening for areas of 50–100 m2. Sealing will take place later, when the surface has settled, and will take one day.

Rather than hiring two different contractors, we could complete the honing and pour the concrete at the same time. As a result, we are able to provide our clients with quotes that are more affordable. 

When compared to other materials that require a concrete blinding slab, such as cobblestones and pavers, the cost per m2 is typically lower. The precise cost of the complete honed concrete finish will be determined upon your choice of concrete mix.

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