Specialized of Exposed Aggregate Concrete
A surface made with the exposed aggregate concrete is a twist to the regular concrete surface which has a uniform and simple look, and therefore, it outshines other types of decorative concrete in a variety of settings.
Exposed aggregate concrete in Craigieburn, Sunbury, Tullamarine and Northern suburbs of Melbourne, as the name suggests, is a concrete finish wherein the aggregate is exposed, i.e., the aggregate forms the topmost layer of the concrete surface. The amount of aggregate in the concrete mix for exposed aggregate is higher as compared to the concrete mixes made for achieving other types of finishes.
Now, as the aggregate is the only visible material, the beauty of the concrete surfaces in the inner and outdoor areas of your property is dependent on the type of aggregate used. Therefore, you must choose the aggregate which suits the existing colour scheme as well as your taste.
