The constant further development of manufacturing techniques enables the production of concrete slabs with a wood look. Especially in the terrace and garden area, the amazingly real-looking imitations perfectly match the surroundings. The designs range from the appearance of laid wooden planks to parquet-like structures.
Fine grain or plank look
The casting techniques of the concrete slabs can imitate different types of wood and surfaces, both in structure and in color gradients from the grain to natural wood cracks and crevices. Optics that represent heavy planks such as those used as railway sleepers in railway construction are popular. Some manufacturers reinforce a nostalgic touch by depicting old drilling and fastening holes.

Concrete slabs with several imitation wooden plank strips running in parallel can represent a wooden floor, similar to parquet, by laying them at right angles. Other laying patterns known from parquet, such as ship's floor parquet, herringbone patterns or board patterns, are also available in hardware stores and specialist shops.
Suitable for inside and outside
Those who prefer a wood look and at the same time prefer the insensitivity of concrete slabs can choose from tile-like products to solid concrete elements. For the outside area, the wood look is achieved using special molds that shape the facing concrete accordingly. Color pigments are usually used, which either create a surface of the same color or which support a wood-like structure through color mixtures.

Depending on the depth of the wood-look surface structures, concrete slabs can get dirty. If, for example, there are cracks in the surface of the wood several millimeters deep, as in the plank look, successful cleaning can only be carried out with a steam jet device.
