Hi,

Has anyone cut coloured concrete slabs with an angle grinder before?
If so did the aggregate in the concrete detract from the overall
finish?

I'm just wondering as I may have to cut down some coping stones to a
more suitable width and wanted to know if i'd be wasting my time.

Cheers,

<M>

Many times.

Not really, though I cant recall leaving a cut face showing, as no
matter how good you are cutting them, they will not be perfectly
straight, and will have grinder marks on the face.

I cut some with my Plasplugs tile cutter and got a beautiful near polished
edge which looked far better than the real surface. ;-) It was roughly the
same colour too - they were red ones. I'd guess it might vary according to
the construction/colour, though.
