Integrally colored concrete greatly enhances the look and value of your home. The color in the concrete will last forever, unlike a painted surface.  The possibilities are endless with colored concrete.

 First, select the color for your concrete

Next, choose the surface appearance you desire.  Those can be a traditional broom finish, a smooth hard troweled finish, a polished surface, or one of our many stamped concrete designs.

To view options, look at our project gallery.

BRICKFORM works with many distribution companies that can provide your contractor with your color choice for your home. Once you have determined the surface look you desire, find a qualified contractor who understands how to properly finish colored concrete by contacting your closest BRICKFORM distributor who will be able to provide you a contractor reference in your area.

Expectations – Integrally colored concrete provides a natural looking colored surface that will last forever. Integrally concrete color is not like paint in that it may not provide an exact match to our color card. The natural raw materials in concrete can affect the final color of the concrete project, meaning the final color may be slightly different. Unlike paint, however, integrally colored concrete appears more natural and will not require frequent repainting. This makes it a perfect solution for low maintenance and sustainability.

Expectations – Due to variations in regional cement and sand across the country, concrete color may not match the color card as exactly as paint. Final color will be within the same color range, but may end up with a slightly different shade because the color is part of a homogenous product, with the cement, sand, and aggregates. This homogenous nature also means the color will be more durable, longer lasting, and more sustainable than painted concrete surfaces.

BRICKFORM Powered Color standard color card colors are available with distributors around the country. Using BRICKFORM Powdered Color allow our distributors to provide consistent, quality color for your job.

 

Integral color is the best way to color concrete because it is durable and long lasting. However, it is important to set realistic expectations when using colored concrete. The finished project may not have the exact shade of the color card, though it will be close. Because the color mixes with the concrete, which may vary in composition by region and jobsite, the final shade is affected by make-up of the concrete. This will, however, result in a much more natural appearing, durable, and sustainable coloring solution than paint.

Color Cards

The colors on this color chart are approximate, using laboratory samples of troweled concrete made from a 6-sack mix, using Type II Gray Portland Cement, Silica Sand, and water with a 4 inch slump. Disclaimer: This digital color card should be used as a general guide, not a definitive indicator of final color. Shades and hues can vary depending on screen settings. When planning a project, consult a physical color card for a better indication of potential color. Create a representative mockup before any project to better account for the effects of conditions, material, and techniques that may alter the final appearance or color.
