Hi, we're Tom and Jack, the owners of City-Link Concrete Construction. We provide Exposed Concrete, we provide stress free quotes and are known for always turning up on time! About City-Link

Exposed aggregate concrete can almost be compared to a piece of granite or marble transformed by polishing. In the case of concrete, that beauty is in the form of decorative aggregate.

An exposed-aggregate surface is obtained by placing concrete and then removing the outer 'skin' of cement paste to uncover decorative coarse aggregate (either batched into the concrete mix or seeded onto the surface). Because of its durability and skid resistance, an exposed aggregate finish is ideal for most flatwork including:

  • Sidewalks
  • Driveways
  • Patios
  • Pool decks

An exposed-aggregate finish is also possible on concrete walls, such as sound barriers, retaining walls, or facades.

  • They turned up on time - prepared and poured the patio - cleaned up well after too.
  • Hassle free. Couldn't ask for more.
