Exposed aggregate concrete is a decorative style of concrete suitable for use as a driveway, sidewalk or patio. The appeal is in the finish, which exposes the smooth textured small stones and pebbles that are part of the concrete. This is in contrast to a smooth concrete finish, where the visible surface is primarily composed of the ‘fines’ within the concrete.
Exposed aggregate provides some visual interest by creating random patterns, and a variety of colours. It also creates an attractive, low maintenance and non-slip surface for your driveway, patio and walkways.
Exposed aggregate can be placed virtually anywhere. The result is a uniquely beautiful look that compares to no other. The best part of all, exposed aggregate concrete has all of the desired characteristics of regular concrete: durability, strength, and flexibility. Beauty and low maintenance – there is nothing else one could ask for!
There’s nothing worse than slipping and falling when it’s rainy outside. Not only is slipping slightly embarrassing, it can be dangerous. If you’re prone to falls, you can either be extra careful all the time, or you can get exposed aggregate. A coarse surface is just what you need to stay safe. While a fall leaves a bruise, your tires can leave skids on uncoated concrete over time. Exposed aggregate accounts for the problem, as it is skid resistant.
