What Is the Condition of the Concrete Surface?
The condition of your concrete surface will affect both the quality of the engraving and its longevity. If there are cracks or damaged areas, these will need to be repaired first. The surface should also be clean and free of dirt, debris, or loose paint.
As such, you should only have your concrete engraved by a professional with the experience and equipment. A good engraver will also be able to advise you on the best time of year to have the work done as different weather conditions can impact the results.
What Design Do You Want To Have Engraved on Your Property Surface?
Aside from determining the condition of your concrete surface, you also have to know the design you want. You can choose a simple yet elegant design or something more intricate — the choice is up to you. Make sure that it is a design that reflects your personality. After all, this will be on your property for a long time.
How Large Does the Design Need To Be?
There’s more to concrete engraving than just choosing the design. The size is also crucial. If the design is too big, it will overwhelm the concrete. If it’s too small, you won’t be able to see it. The best way to determine the size of your design is by using a grid. Of course, you can save yourself the trouble and have our team of experts do this for you.
How Deep Into the Concrete Should the Engraving Go?
How deep the engraving needs to depend on how hard the concrete is. The depth of the engraving also says a lot about how long it will last. If you want an engraved concrete surface that will last for many years without showing any wear, you need to have the engraving done quite deep into the concrete.
