Pattern Imprinted Concrete
Pattern imprinted concrete (or PIC) is a very new and popular process, in which a layer of concrete is poured over a suitable sub-base and a colour is applied along with a colour hardener. The wet concrete then has a patterned matt applied to it to create the effect required. Examples of these can include Brickwork, Ashlar stone and textured stone.
The aim of PIC is to give the effect of another material being placed instead of plain concrete. One of the main benefits of PIC is that it can cover large areas quickly, making it a fast and cost effective way to get a flawless replica of many different materials.

Generally there are two types of drainage systems running away from your property – surface water and foul water. There are drains for the surface water also known as storm water drains which carry water from roofs, drives, roads and discharge into nearby rivers or streams.
Foul water drains also known as sewers, carry all of the waste water from your sinks, toilets, baths and appliances to sewage treatment works. Drainage is one of the most important parts of your home as the drainage system removes all of the waste water from your property.
Footings are an important part of foundation construction. They are typically made of concrete with rebar reinforcement that has been poured into an excavated trench. The purpose of footings is to support the foundation and prevent settling. Footings are especially important in areas with troublesome soils. The dimensions of footings also depend on the size and type of structure that will be built. Placement of footings is crucial to provide the proper support for the foundation and ultimately the structure.
