What our customers think…

Is an exposed aggregate driveway a good option?

Let’s take a look at some of the commonly asked questions surrounding exposed aggregate paving…

Exposed aggregate concrete is a decorative form of concrete where the top layer of cement paste is removed to reveal the underlying aggregate, creating a textured and visually appealing surface. It looks very similar to resin bound systems but is a lot more hardy.

It is installed by pouring a concrete mix that includes decorative aggregates and colouring, then using a surface retarder, the top layer of cement is washed away to expose the decorative aggregates.

The benefits include aesthetic appeal, durability, slip resistance, low maintenance, and versatility in design options.

It is more durable and lower-maintenance than materials like block paving, paving slabs, and tarmac. It also offers better slip resistance and a unique aesthetic compared to pressed concrete and resin-bound surfaces.
