If you are looking for a contemporary appearance for your home or business that’s low-maintenance and durable, honed concrete is the perfect solution. Honed concrete is specifically designed for outdoor spaces and is considered the outdoor equivalent of indoor polished concrete. 

From honed concrete pool surrounds to a honed concrete driveway, the process is ideal for most residences, stores and public access buildings. Mason Concreting, offers a honing service that will leave your concrete with a durable yet stylish finish.

What is Concrete Honing?

Concrete honing is a process that involves grinding the top layer of concrete off and exposing the aggregate underneath to a level of your choosing. A sealant is then applied to the area resulting in a non-slip surface. The process shares similarities with concrete polishing, however, it is less labour intensive and a more cost-effective option. The end result is a low sheen natural looking surface. The finish is perfect for those who want the contemporary look of exposed aggregate however would prefer a smoother surface to walk on.

At Mason Concreting we take care of the concrete installation in addition to the concrete honing phase. Alternatively, we can hone existing concrete to revitalise the area.

Just like when selecting coloured concrete or exposed aggregate, there are a range of decorative concrete mixes available that we can hone. As Approved Installers for Geostone by Holcim we have access to beautiful concrete mixes with different base colours and stone varieties.

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.

Mason Concreting, provides a honing service that will leave your concrete with a stylish finish.

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.

For concrete installation, polishing and honing we service the Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore, Sydney.
