This blog is dedicated to my good friend and concrete colleague Elaine Toogood. She recently inspired me to ‘get off my horse and write my blog.’ This came about through a discussion on sandpaper of all things.
"80 grit? 120 grit or indeed True Grit?" That was the question.
Of course we weren’t discussing the thespian talents of John Wayne or even listening to Glen Campbell... because the usual focus was on Visual Concrete of course. The subject in Elaine's holster was if sandpaper was a good idea to use for cleaning concrete surfaces…
We never got round to having that shoot out before, during or even after Eco Build. So in the spirit of sharing and, as John Wayne once said, “Tomorrow hopes we have learned something from yesterday.” here's what I think:

Welcome to the GreyMatter blog . The basic purpose of this blog is to be informative and to illustrate my experience of Architectural Fair Faced concrete over the last decade or so.
When I first began my relationship with concrete I found it a struggle to access honest, open information. This experience manifests itself in this blog which I hope will prove to be a useful resource from which to cherry pick.
I hope that anything contained within this blog may be uncovered, discovered, shared and planned for. What a luxury it would be then if we were prepared to deal with the unexpected! If not, what a gathering it would be should we have contact with those around us who could?
Collaboration is key. Please add to the blog if you can.
