Exposed Aggregate Concrete Helps You Make a Striking Impression

Hardscaping remains exceedingly popular. Apart from adding value to a home’s outdoor space, hardscaping serves several purposes and is beneficial in more than one way.

Hardscaping, most importantly, adds durability to any home’s exteriors including your driveway. A well-crafted driveway remains an asset wherever and however you live. So, while choosing the type of driveway to install, take a pick in terms of the appearance as well as the functionality.

The driveway is the first thing anyone driving past or to your home notices. It creates a vital first impression of your home, including both its inside and outside. It is, therefore, important that you spend some time thinking about the style, design, and type of driveway that you want. Moreover, the integrity and quality of your driveway are bound to have an effect on your neighbours. To all homeowners and their guests, you can show that yours is a neighbourhood that takes pride in its homes.

Why should you go for aggregate concrete to create an image that impresses?

As mentioned above, you should endeavour to create a distinctive, aesthetically pleasing driveway. Aggregate concrete in hardscapes helps you achieve this and more. This is of vital importance as you should be proud and satisfied with each aspect of your home’s exterior as it is something you’ll see every day. Your neighbours will share this feeling.

You must keep in mind that exposed aggregate concrete can be used in a wide range of hardscapes, something that improves its appeal. You can also use it in other areas of your yard apart from your driveway. Additionally, exposed aggregate concrete has many enticing features that you should know about.

The following section details the major advantages of using exposed aggregate concrete.

Exposed aggregate concrete is highly durable. Concrete, on the other hand, is smooth, and therefore, susceptible to cracks and chipping. But your hardscaping’s exposed aggregate concrete is not as vulnerable, which is why cracks and chipping are not that prevalent or frequent. This refers to the ratio of water to concrete at the time of finishing. All the aspects of exposed aggregate concrete contribute to its long-lasting and durable nature for years.

Consequently, exposed aggregate concrete also requires little maintenance. You don’t need to do much to maintain its original condition. Washing it with water till it reaches the desired level and then sealing it is enough. You should aim to reseal it once every two years. This feature is particularly attractive to homeowners since the maintenance of finished concrete involves the use of chemicals to prevent cracks and chipping.

Finally, hardscaping with exposed aggregate concrete is also cost-effective. The installation is not as costly as that of other hardscaping materials. If you are on a budget, you can opt for exposed aggregate concrete as it will be cost-effective.
