What is exposed aggregate?
Aggregate is the sand and gravel part of the concrete mix that the cement bonds to and gives concrete strength. The exposed aggregate method removes the top layer so the individual gravel pieces are visible on the surface.
Exposed aggregate has been a popular technique with homeowners and contractors for decades. Exposed aggregate can be a great choice, especially if you are trying to match existing concrete or contrast to another finished surface.
Exposed aggregate is ideal for sidewalks, pool patios, driveways and steps.
