Exposed aggregate is a decorative treatment of concrete. This type of finish has been around since the 1900s, and is becoming increasingly popular again. Exposed aggregate is both affordable and stylish, making it a fantastic option for home pool decks, walkways, patios, and driveways.
Exposed Aggregate Installation Process
The process of stripping away the surface of concrete reveals a patterned beauty that is unique and contemporary. Whether the patterning is natural or manufactured within the concrete, with the addition of natural stone for example, the finish is always stylish, attractive and unique.
An exposed aggregate concrete pool deck complements a wide range of home designs and styles.
