Modified Slate Trowel
Tuscan trowel, also known as a skip trowel or slate trowel down, is a popular concrete overlay and concrete restoration method for which Cool Concrete uses Elite Crete System’s, THIN-FINISH™ and MICRO-FINISH overlays.
These decorative concrete techniques can give the look of slate, weathered stone or ceramic tile. Due to the slip resistance of these textured concrete applications, they are frequently utilized in wet areas, such as driveways, walkways, pool decks, or any outdoor concrete surface that is subjected to the elements. The Tuscan trowel texture is also a trendy interior and exterior flooring system. Designs are easily constructed with stencils or fiber tape, replicating large or small tiles, marble, stone or any unique image or design at a fraction of the cost.
Trowel down techniques are a great concrete restoration application. Repairing and hiding pitted, cracked, stained and weathered concrete surfaces is the most common uses of this application technique. Rather than laying new concrete, a THIN-FINISH™ trowel down may be the easy answer for resurfacing your old or damaged concrete slab and acquire a brand new look of textured concrete.
Creating depth and building layers with multiple colors is easily achieved with highlight staining and coloring, giving these concrete textures unlimited options.
