Brushed concrete is a type of finish for poured concrete. After pouring, the concrete is then brushed with a stiff-bristled broom, which gives it a rougher surface compared to smooth finished concrete. Brushed concrete is also one of the most affordable options, so it’s a great choice if you’re on a budget.
Brushed concrete is versatile and popular choice that can be used for driveways, walkways, staircases, or patios.
Because the rough texture of brushed concrete adds more traction, it’s great for areas that are bound to get wet, such as a patio near a swimming pool. The extra traction can help prevent slips and falls.
Maintenance and Lifespan
Brushed concrete is a low maintenance option and doesn’t require regular upkeep. It can often last 30-40 years.
