The Patterson’s contacted local Bomanite Licensee, Bomanite Toronto, located in Ontario Canada, for design inspiration for their front driveway that would be as awe inspiring as their home. They wanted something that was durable enough for the snowy winters, to be able to handle snow removal equipment and provide low maintenance as well as be fashionable in layout and design.

Residential Driveway receives Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Deep Washed Sandscape Texture System with a Buckskin Integral Color to Complement the Extravagant Courtyard, Basketball Brick Court and Stone Columns and Walls installed by Bomanite Toronto to withstand the Canadian Winters.Bomanite Toronto worked with the homeowners, providing several samples of different systems, aggregates and exposure levels to find the right style and design for their project. The Bomanite Sandscape Texture Exposed Aggregate System was chosen with a Buckskin Integral color for the main driveway. Approximately 3,000 square feet of concrete was poured, placed and finished. The banding along the driveway was formed and poured separately using a Limestone textured finish. Designed saw cuts throughout the driveway were also placed as part of the overall design. Exposing the aggregates with a Deep Wash brought out the aggregate colors complementing the brick surface of the basketball court as well as the checkerboard patterned courtyard entry.

The mixed-use structure features the Brothers Marketplace on the first floor and four floors of apartments sit above, delivering on the brand’s promise “Eat. Drink. Be Local.”

With the market emphasizing local producers and vendors, reaching out to local Bomanite Licensee, Premier Concrete Construction, was appropriate. Premier Concrete worked with the designer and owners to establish the perfect floor not only to accommodate patrons but equipment as well; shopping carts, hand trucks, utility carts and adjustable shelving. Unlike traditional floor finishes, such as carpet or vinyl tile, polished concrete does not require extensive maintenance procedures such as waxing, burnishing or wet vacuuming, a benefit the owners appreciated.

Bomanite VitraFlor utilizes select un-colored concrete that is placed and finished to standards required for decorative polished concrete flooring. The concrete is ground to expose the desired amount of aggregate, then polished to the required gloss level and treated with a Bomanite stain resist.  Samples of differing gloss and aggregate exposures were reviewed. The decision was made to install 12,000 sq ft of the Bomanite VitraFlor system with a Class B Fine aggregate exposure, with little or no medium aggregate at random locations known as a salt and pepper finish. The floor was then polished to a Level 3, which typically produces a medium-high sheen level with a 50-60 Gloss reading.  The primary benefit to Bomanite VitraFlor is the simplicity of installation and durability of the finished floor, lending to its low-maintenance and long-term sustainable features.

Brothers Marketplace was a concept born from second-generation siblings Rick and Ed Roche of the well distinguished Massachusetts supermarket, Roche Bros. In launching the Brothers Marketplace concept, they wanted to be sure that they kept within their mission of providing their customers with the highest quality products and outstanding customer service.  Bomanite VitraFlor is just one of the quality decorative concrete products and systems offered by Bomanite and its licensed installers, perfect sustainable flooring for grocery stores, retail shops, industrial warehouses and more.
