What is decorative cutting?
Often, when customers have new concrete driveways or patio’s laid, they want a more artistic finish. This can be accomplished by exposing the aggregate, or mixing coloured oxide in with the concrete prior to placing. Another way to achieve a more aesthetic finish, customers ask that we apply decorative cutting.
Decorative cutting is a strategic series of wider cuts that form a pattern in newly laid concrete.
Decorative cutting is always in addition to standard expansion cutting and is usually performed several weeks after initial expansion cutting.
Here is a recent example of decorative cutting from Sharp Concrete Cutters and Drillers Ltd.

Decorative cutting is achieved using a floor saw. For more information about our range of floor saw services, read on…
A floorsaw has multiple applications including –
The placing of new concrete slabs (garage, house, path, patio, etc) requires control joints to be cut within a few days of placing. This prevents “natural cracking” as the concrete expands over time.
A step up from expansion cutting, a number of customers are after a more artistic effect, especially when the concrete they have laid is on public display. Decorative cutting usually involves a wider cut and allows for artistic patterns at the customer’s discretion.
Cutting for Demolition
Often a project will call for the removal of a large area of concrete. We offer a range of deep cutting solutions to make that possible.
Similar to cutting for demolition, this controlled approach to removal often requires deep cutting over a large area. Can we do that? Yes, we can!
Responding to advances in technology, customers often require wide cuts for the laying of a loop for the installation of a controlled gate that responds to pressure from vehicles in an area of concrete.
