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