What Is White Concrete?
White concrete is concrete that is white, not gray. Beyond simply a color change, white concrete is a premium material, specified in architectural concrete applications where appearance is a high priority. White concrete provides an aesthetic appeal, maximizing the powerful visuals of architectural concrete with strength and durability.
Architects are increasingly turning to white concrete in their designs thanks largely to customizable color and design, long lifecycle, limited maintenance, and high slip resistance standard to architectural concrete.

The Green Umbrella® white concrete system is more versatile, sustainable, and economical than traditional alternatives.
Versatile: White concrete provides a neutral base for tinting and staining, allowing for a broad spectrum of colors from bright white to saturated colors. It opens the door for custom designs and patterns, such as seeded aggregate or other objects into the exposed layer of the concrete.
Sustainable: White concrete is environmentally friendly with high ambient light reflection, reduced heating and cooling loads, and exceptional durability.
Economical: Polished white concrete floors require less maintenance and are more durable. They have longer life cycles than traditional flooring choices, such as marble, granite, tile, and epoxy-coated concrete.
White Polished Concrete Is LEED Certified:
- Made from recycled materials
- Releases minimal pollutants
- Alternative to hazardous materials
- Reduces heating and cooling costs
- Reduces energy use by increasing ambient light
- Green Umbrella treatments have zero or low VOC content and minimal impact on indoor air quality
