Why choose exposed aggregate?
Many homeowners go for this popular and stylish option for its modern and contemporary look. The possibilities are endless when choosing from an array of exposed aggregate colours and styles. Not only does an exposed aggregate finish offer a sophisticated appearance, but it also serves a long-term purpose, as it is extremely durable and keeps its look much longer than plain concrete. Exposed aggregate offers a decorative option for a slip-resistant surface, and is great for driveways, foot-paths, and around pools. Baloz Concrete only uses the highest quality materials in all our concreting services.
What is exposed aggregate?
All concrete is mixed with a combination of cement, aggregates, and water, the ratio depending on the desired outcome. Exposed aggregate is the result of high-pressure washing of the surface layer of the concrete. This “exposes” the beautiful stones beneath the surface, and can be done to the extent that you prefer. The kinds of stones used in the concrete vary widely in size, shape, and color, offering a variety of choices to match any home design.
