Exposed Aggregate is the process of washing of the top layer of cement of freshly laid concrete to expose the pre-chosen aggregate underneath.
A very popular finish in the construction industry and with architects. Because of it’s low maintenance, very hard wearing surface and natural look.
The aggregate, which is pre-chosen by the client, is added to the concrete at the batching plant and then transported to the job site.The concrete is laid and finish as per normal. Then when the surface of the concrete is at the desired stage, a liquid retardant is sprayed onto the surface of the concrete. Once the concrete is hard enough to be walked on, the top layer is removed from the concrete exposing the aggregates underneath.
Nowadays there are many different aggregates to choose from and with the help of our team, one can be chosen to suit the look and feel of your project.
