Considerin­g a cement finish?


Inez’s bathroom walls and floors were done by Crete and Wall Creations, which specialise­s in colour cement floors and screed wall plastering.

“Once the tiles and glue were removed and the surfaces were diamond-grinded, we applied a light grey screed over the existing cement on the floor and a light grey mottled plaster on the walls,” says owner Manie Vermeulen. “The walls and floors were then waterproof­ed with our own cementitio­us product, followed by two coats of a polyuretha­ne sealant.”

Both products can be used over tiles too, says Manie, provided the tiles are not cracked. “We sand the tiles thoroughly and plaster with crack-reducing fibrous mesh before applying the 4–5mm screed.”

The colour plaster and the colour cement are available in more than 20 colours.
