Basically, this style of driveway includes concrete and a gravel mix, with a variety of stones. After the concrete driveway has been poured, a technique is used that ensures partial exposure of the gravel or stone mix. The end result is extremely durable, is able to withstand constant use, and is classic in its appearance. Continue reading Project Spotlight: Scottsdale Exposed Aggregate Driveway

As pool deck installation and resurfacing experts, “Can I paint my pool deck?” is a question we sometimes hear. So today, we thought it might be helpful to try to answer this question, and to provide some of our insight into whether or not you should, in fact, paint your pool deck.
