What Is Exposed Aggregate?

Exposed aggregate is a decorative method used for concrete surfaces. When concrete is initially poured, it contains a mix of cement and small materials like stones, pebbles, or sometimes glass.

As this mixture begins to set, the top thin layer of cement is removed, unveiling these materials beneath. The result is a surface that has a visually appealing, textured finish. This textured surface is attractive and provides added grip, making walking safer, especially when wet. Many homeowners use exposed aggregate for areas like driveways, walkways, or patios, as it offers a distinctive look while also being durable and slip-resistant.

Benefits of Exposed Aggregate

These are the main benefits of exposed aggregate:

Slip Resistance

The textured nature of exposed aggregate provides a naturally skid-resistant surface. This is especially beneficial for areas prone to becoming wet, like around pools or in rainy climates, as it reduces the risk of slips and falls.

Aesthetic Appeal

Exposed aggregate offers a unique and attractive finish. Unlike plain concrete, the variety in materials (like pebbles or stones) gives the surface a rich, textured appearance. This means every installation can have its distinct look, enhancing the overall aesthetic of a home or landscape.

Low Maintenance

Exposed aggregate requires minimal upkeep. Unlike some other finishes, it doesn’t easily stain or retain dirt. A simple sweep, occasional rinse, or resealing every few years can keep it looking as good as new, saving homeowners both time and effort in the long run.


One of the standout qualities of exposed aggregate is its resilience. The surface can withstand heavy traffic, extreme weather conditions, and daily wear and tear. Over time, it maintains its appearance with minimal maintenance, ensuring homeowners get long-lasting value for their investment.

Where Can I Use Exposed Aggregate?

You can use exposed aggregate in the following areas:

  • Driveways: Offers a unique, durable finish that stands out from standard concrete.
  • Patios: Enhances outdoor spaces with its textured and visually appealing surface.
  • Walkways: Provides an aesthetic and sturdy pathway in gardens or between home structures.
