What is Exposed Aggregate?

You may be wondering what exactly exposed aggregate is and why it’s such a great option. Exposed aggregate is a type of decorative concrete that is created by removing the top layer of cement to expose the patterned surface below. This decorative concrete is comparable to granite or marble because of the look that removing that top layer of concrete achieves.

Why Choose Exposed Aggregate?

There are several benefits to choosing exposed aggregate for your next project. Exposed aggregate can help you create a unique and polished appearance while still staying within a reasonable budget. This is because exposed aggregate is a low-cost option when compared to different building materials. Exposed aggregate is durable like traditional concrete, but with added skid-resistance due to it’s textured surface.

Not only is exposed aggregate a beautiful and durable option, but it’s also a low maintenance option. Once exposed aggregate has been set, it generally only needs to be sprayed with the hose to clean and sealant placed every two years to ensure that your exposed aggregate maintains it’s stunning appearance. With exposed aggregate, you can feel confident that your new additions will be beautiful for years to come with little maintenance needed on your end.
