Learn about exposed aggregate: What is it? Where is it used? What are its benefits?

An exposed-aggregate surface is obtained by placing concrete and then removing the outer 'skin' of cement paste to uncover decorative coarse aggregate (either batched into the concrete mix or seeded onto the surface). Because of its durability and skid resistance, an exposed aggregate finish is ideal for most flatwork including:

  • Sidewalks
  • Driveways
  • Patios
  • Pool decks
  • Plazas

An exposed-aggregate finish is also possible on concrete walls or tilt-up panels. Vertical applications include:

  • Decorative retaining walls
  • Architectural building facades
  • Sound barrier walls
