Over the last few years our clients have been enjoying new concrete with an old finish. At North Shore Aggregate we have developed a process of mechanically aging new concrete. This all started when were on a job in Evanston, IL. The landscape architect was looking to match the look of some existing concrete on a project. We thought for a while on how we could achieve this result. We then began to make samples using different types of concrete mixes and finishing methods. Boy did we make a lot of samples. Eventually we developed a concrete mix design and finishing method to make freshly poured concrete look like it was poured decades ago. Instead of allowing nature to weather the concrete, we speed up the process. The result is a beautiful antique looking finish. Our antique concrete is perfect for individuals that don’t like the look of new bright white concrete. Send us an email or give us a call and we can install your new project with antique concrete.
