What is Exposed Aggregate?
Exposed Aggregate is a decorative concrete type that is created by removing the top layer of concrete to expose the aggregate beneath it. Different techniques such as brushing and washing, using a surface retarder, or abrasive blasting are used to remove the top layer of the concrete. The result is a hard-wearing surface that will last for years to come. The surface can be stained, dyed, or coloured once it is completed. While exposed aggregate is popularly used in driveways, it can be placed just anywhere where concrete or paving slabs are used, such as footpaths, pool surrounds, patios, and more.
At Frankston Concreters, we let you take control of the look you want to achieve. If you are looking to heighten the drama, we have our unique techniques that will enhance the look of your driveway with complementing textures and colours. Apart from combining different aggregates such as granites, quartz, basalts, marbles, and others. We can also colour the surrounding concrete so that it matches the aggregate’s colour pallet.
