With exposed concrete, homeowners can have the aesthetic appeal of a decorative aggregate, but also the high strength benefit of concrete. The advantage of exposed concrete and exposed concrete floors is that it is maintenance free, unwanted moss or weeds will not hinder homeowners, but maintenance similar to normal concrete is recommended, so that the pavement retains its admirable appearance.

The cost implications for homeowners is that paving will be more expensive than traditional concrete but less expensive than paving.


What Is Exposed Aggregate And Where Is It Used?

An exposed aggregate surface is achieved by placing concrete and then peeling off the outer “skin” of the cement paste to reveal the decorative coarse aggregate (either in batches in the concrete mix or seeded onto the surface).

Due to its durability and slip resistance, a washed out aggregate is ideal for most smoothing jobs, including:

  • Footpaths
  • Driveways
  • Patios
  • Pool covers
  • Squares

A washed aggregate finish on concrete walls or ramped panels is also possible. Vertical applications include: Decorative retaining walls Facades of architectural buildings sound barrier walls


Advantages Of Exposed Aggregate Finishes

With washed aggregate, you can achieve spectacular effects at a reasonable cost, since few additional materials (other than decorative aggregate) and tools (other than the basic finishing tool) are required. Here are some other notable benefits of washed aggregate finishes:

The basic procedures are simple enough for experienced finishers to easily master.

The surface is robust, non-slip and can withstand heavy traffic and extreme weather conditions.

  • Many types and sizes of decorative aggregates are available for unlimited colour and texture variations.
  • Exposed aggregate is very versatile and contrasts beautifully with plain concrete or other decorative treatments such as stamping, stenciling, staining, and integral staining.
  • Little maintenance is required other than sealing and occasional cleaning.
