EXPOSED AGGREGATE & DECORATIVE CONCRETES

What is Exposed Aggregate Concrete?

Exposed aggregate is a decorative concrete that exposes the aggregates used in cement. The finish is created by removing the surface fines from the concrete to expose the natural elements in the stone.

The most common decorative aggregates are richly coloured natural stones such as basalts, granite, quartz, or limestone. The colour palette of an exposed aggregate surface is dependent on the sort of decorative stone that is used.

Exposed aggregate is ideal for most outdoor living spaces, such as;

  • Alfresco areas
  • Patios & Courtyards
  • Walkways
  • Surrounding swimming pools and spas
  • High traffic areas
  • Indoor areas like foyers, bathrooms, or kitchens
  • Kitchen counters
  • Driveways
  • Carports

What is Honed Exposed Aggregate Concrete?

Honed aggregate is technically another type of exposed aggregate. We source the same decorative mix in honed and exposed aggregate concrete.

The difference is the honed mix must be at a higher strength to be honed down, although you will have the same huge variety of aggregate mixes that you would with exposed/washed aggregate.

The detail that sets honed aggregate apart from exposed aggregate is the fact that honed aggregate is mechanically ground down, giving the material a much smoother finish than exposed aggregate.

This smooth finish tends to add a modern flair to the areas where it is used and makes your surfaces much gentler to walk across.

Benefits of Exposed Aggregate & Honed Aggregate Concrete

Both stylish alternatives perform for a lifetime with minimal maintenance needed.

We love to use exposed aggregate concrete because it provides;

  • Practical and stylish decorative concrete finish.
  • Lots of decorative concrete colours, textures and aggregate options allowing for customisation.
  • Resistant to heavy traffic and extreme weather.
  • Slip resistance especially around swimming pool and pool surrounding areas.
  • Low maintenance and easy maintenance.
  • Popular Perth home replacement option for pavers to stop weeds growing and pest infestation.
