Exposed Aggregate Driveway
An exposed aggregate concrete driveway or walkway can certainly give any home or commercial business property a unique look. Not only are you going to be able to get a great look from this particular surface. For the most part, you are going to be looking at a finish that is going to be quite durable. Exposed aggregate concrete is made to last a long time. You don’t really need to worry too much about overall maintenance. At least you won’t need to worry all that much when things are done right the first time around. That’s what we want to provide for you.
Can Exposed Aggregate Concrete Be Painted?
Yes, you can certainly color these surfaces. We want to make sure that we get this point across. That exposed aggregate can be made to look a very particular way. Mainly because a lot of folks have the idea that if you are going to go with an exposed aggregate finish you have to stick with the darkish color that shows up naturally on the surface. This is a finish that can be customized all the way through. Give us a call or contact us if you are looking to explore more options.
Is This A Durable Finish?
Definitely, exposed aggregate driveways or other types of surfaces are going to be extremely durable. The concrete with this type of finish is going to be compacted quite a bit. This is going to make it a perfect surface to have a lot of traffic on. When it’s just used for a home driveway you are not going to have any type of trouble. If you were to apply it to an area where you could potentially get more heavy-duty traffic it would still hold up quite well.
What Are Some Of The Negative Aspects Of This Type Of Finish?
We offer a wide variety of options to create unique looking concrete areas. To the point, where we don’t have to champion one method over the other. We say that because we honestly couldn’t find a negative aspect with these types of finishes. What we could say is that you may not like the way that it makes your concrete surface look. That’s a valid concern and you should never have to stick with something that you don’t really like. As far as the functionality of a surface like this, you are not going to have any trouble.
More Expensive Than Regular Concrete?
One of the things that people tend to ask is whether exposed aggregate is effectively more expensive than regular concrete. For the most part, the answer is going to be yes. At the end of the day though every single option that we talk about on the site is essentially going to be more expensive than the normal gray slab of concrete. We would have to make price comparisons with some of the other options that we offer. Something that we will gladly do for you if you give us a call or contact us.
