What is Exposed Aggregate

Exposed aggregate is a type of concrete made where the aggregate (rocks, stones, etc.) used to make the concrete is purposely exposed on the surface.

This can be done in a number of ways but most often it involves using a different ratio of concrete to water which allows the rocks to be more visible and “popping” out from the surface. Additionally, a sealant is put over the top to protect the aggregate from damage.

Exposed aggregate is known for its high end finished look, durability and slip-resistant surface. It also requires very little maintenance compared to other types of driveways.
