Bug Hole Finish with Architectural Concrete

Bug holes, also known as surface voids, are the little cavities that appear on concrete caused by water or air during the concrete casting process. Typically, these bug holes are associated with unfinished concrete as an element to be avoided, but ConcreteWorks East has turned the tables and has begun incorporating the bug hole finish in our architectural concrete. The depth and rawness created in the texture by the bug holes has made the finish increasingly popular in everything from raw edges to wall panels. The following pictures feature the bug hole finish as the edge finish of a trowel counter for a private residence in Pennsylvania. If you would like to learn more about the finish and how you could incorporate it into your project, feel free to contact us.
