Exposed Aggregate Concrete
This type of decorative concrete may sound more complicated than it actually is. Aggregate simply means to combine several elements to create a whole item. With exposed aggregate concrete, we mix in other materials with the concrete to achieve a different look. We commonly mix in gravel, pebbles, or sand to achieve a new textured appearance. The top layer is then washed away to reveal the details of the added material.
More than just a floor walking on it
The Exposé decorative concrete range is created by removing the surface fines from the concrete resulting in the internal aggregates being exposed highlighting the natural elements of the stone. Expose is ideal for use on outdoor areas, the more heavily exposed finish is perfect for driveways or areas requiring more grip.

Exposed Aggregate Costs
The question that always arises is how much the cost for exposed aggregate installation per square meter?
The answer here is puzzling, especially since it is related to the source of the material as it is natural and its colors and sizes vary and are brought from more than one source, including what is imported from outside country. The prices here are determined after knowing the customer’s request and the type and color of the required materials.
