Exposed aggregate combines the natural beauty of stone and the toughness of concrete to give you a gorgeous concreted surface that will last for years. It provides the kind of finish that is suitable for a variety of purposes and can be just as useful indoors as it is outdoors. And by mixing in a bit of colour or varying the composition of the aggregate, this finish can really make your patio, swimming pool surround or driveway pop.

How Exposed Aggregate Works

The ultimate aim of exposed aggregate is to expose an underlying aggregate in a layer of freshly poured concrete. But the process of exposing the aggregate can be done in a variety of ways. The aggregate itself can be infused into the concrete at different stages depending on the effect you want to achieve.

Surface-dressed exposed aggregate:

Here the decorative aggregate is seeded into freshly poured concrete and tamped down into place using a hand tamper. While this method may seem easy to execute, it is also easy to get wrong. Using the wrong aggregate or the wrong proportions in the concrete mix will compromise the integrity of the surface.

Washed to expose:

This is the preferred technique for installing a textured aggregate on a high-traffic surface or in a commercial setting. The aggregate is mixed into the wet concrete prior to pouring and then exposed before the concrete completely cures. The aggregate is either mixed into the entire concrete mix or mixed into a thin top layer of concrete to avoid wasting the decorative aggregate.

Abrasive blasting:

One other way to expose the aggregate is to do so after the concrete mix has completely dried and cured. In this case sandblasters or other abrasives are used to expose the aggregate. This method may not be ideal if you want the aggregate to retain its shape and colour.

Styling Exposed Aggregate

If you would like your exposed aggregate finish to really stand out, we can tweak it in the following ways:

  • Colour: We can change the colour to the underlying concrete to create a stylish contrast with the aggregate. Alternatively, we can apply chemical stains in particular patterns to the concrete after curing. There is also the option of using coloured elements in the aggregate itself. You’ll be amazed at the stunning effects playing around with exposed aggregate colourscan produce.
  • Vary the aggregate: The concentration of the aggregate can be varied in different sections of the surface. We have used separators to break the monotony of the textured aggregateto stunning effect as well. Patterns can also be stamped into the exposed aggregate for this purpose.
