Exposed aggregate offers an attractive alternative to grey concrete. Supremely durable and weather resistant like other forms of concrete, exposed aggregate is becoming a popular choice for homes and businesses in the Brisbane, Redlands and the Northern Gold Coast areas with a great deal of developers opting for exposed aggregate driveways and paths in their building covenants.
But what exactly is exposed aggregate and how do they get it to look that way?
Put simply, exposed aggregate concrete results from a thin layer of cement being removed (washed away) using a variety of methods from the top of the driveway/path/slab to reveal the stones or pebbles and sands underneath before it cures completely. It is particularly attractive over plain grey concrete as all the natural hues and elements of the stones are revealed that would otherwise be buried in plain concrete.
Exposed aggregate can come in a variety of different mix and colour combinations and the expert team at Everyday Concrete Solutions can advise on what blend best suits the nature of the job you intend.Exposed aggregate can provide a hardy, more natural looking and long lasting solution for:
