Exposed Aggregate Concrete

The role of the driveway in a home's final appearance is often under appreciated. Being visible to the public's eye, driveways can often complete the aesthetics of your home. Thus, it is important to give your driveway the same amount of love as you do with your facade.

Read more text: We have completed a large number of exposed aggregate concrete driveways, each of them resulting in an extremely happy customer. Exposed Aggregate (AKA decorative concrete) is an exceptionally popular finish for your concrete driveway.  Aggregate concrete driveways begin with the concrete being poured and allowed time to set for specific number of hours. Once that process is completed, the top layer is washed off which exposes the aggregate, or gravel within the mix. This exposed aggregate concrete for your driveway is exceptionally durable, non-slip and adds some excellent aesthetics to the entrance to your home.  The aggregate concrete is often used in a number of ways including driveways, patios and exterior surfaces.

There are potential variations in terms of the texture, appearance,  consistency of colours and the actual appearance of the finished concrete. This as a result of the basic raw materials which are utilised in the project. We suggest speaking to one of our team members about your upcoming project.
