Concrete Products

Efflorescence: Efflorescence is a temporary salt residue that can occur on all concrete products in their initial life. The salt masks the colour of the products and is often mistaken for fading. The best course of action is to leave the paved area to weather over time and efflorescence will usually disappear.

Differential Curing: dark patches occasionally appear on the surface of garden products. This is is known as Differential Curing and is caused by varying moisture levels within the flag drying at different rates. Like efflorescence, given time the natural weathering process such as patches will tone down and become less visible.

Due to the nature of concrete and stone products. Paving slabs in particular will have their own unique characteristics in colour or shade and no responsibility can be taken for these variations.
