The versatility of stencilled concrete in Melbourne enables the design of truly custom patterns, offering homeowners a chance to customise their properties with a unique and individual touch
The Craftsmanship Behind Stencilled Concrete
Creating stencilled concrete is a blend of art and engineering. The process begins by laying down a base layer of fresh concrete. While the concrete is still wet, stencils—often made from paper, plastic, or metal—are carefully placed on the surface to outline the chosen patterns or designs.
Once the stencils are securely positioned, a coloured hardener is applied over the top. This serves to add both hue and durability to the finished product. After allowing some time for the concrete to partially set, the stencils are delicately removed, revealing a beautiful, customised design that’s as durable as it is visually engaging. Unlike stamped concrete, which relies on texture to create its aesthetic, stencilled concrete combines the texture of the base layer with the added hue of coloured concrete for a multi-dimensional effect

Your Stencilled Concrete Questions Answered
If you already have stencilled concrete on your property and want to add to it, we understand the desire to colour-match. We will do our best to match as closely as possible, but please note some variation may occur.
As the concrete surface can be relatively smooth, yes, it can become slippery when wet or icy. However, we frequently add a texture to the surface once the colour has been applied to provide extra grip.
All concrete is, unfortunately, subject to cracking eventually. Please be reassured that we do everything we can to prevent this, including preparing the subgrade properly and cutting control joints in.
No, the processes for stencilling and painting are very different. Whilst stencilled concrete does leave you with a coloured surface, there isn’t a risk for streaking and other issues that can occur with painting.
This will depend on a number of factors, including where it has been laid and how well it’s cared for. As a whole, however, we expect it to last a minimum of 5 years but has been known to last for decades.
