Exposed Aggregate Concrete adds a beautiful, natural, look to your home and landscape, either as the main surface or combined with other concrete finishes as accents. Perfect for a stately colonial or a rustic log cabin, Custom Concrete Plus can suggest ideas that will enhance and beautify your landscape with this finish.
Exposed aggregate concrete mixture contains smoother and finer aggregates, or stones, than conventional concrete. Since the stones are not crushed, they are very comfortable underfoot.
This exposed finish is achieved by applying a retardant to the fresh concrete and later washing off the top layer of sandy concrete mix, exposing the stones. The stones are only exposed enough to reveal their shape and color, yet not enough to make winter snow shoveling difficult.
