Exposed Aggregate Concrete is perfect for Driveways, Patios, Porch, Walkways, and Pool-Decks. An Exposed Aggregate Surface is created by using an acid wash to the surface of a Concrete slab to eat away the cement film at the surface and expose the faces of decorative pebbles that were used in the Concrete batch. The pebbles are usually very dense and are now surrounded by relatively porous.
Exposed Aggregate has great benefits such as being easy to keep clean, not showing the wear and tear of Finished Concrete, and giving you a distinct look. The down side is that, unlike Finished Concrete, it needs to be kept Sealed. Exposed Aggregate Concrete is an extremely porous type of Concrete, so if left unsealed, water and moisture will penetrate the Concrete and cause it to crack. One crack will soon lead to another, and another. Unsealed Aggregate Concrete will also begin to lose the stones that define it. They will gradually pop lose from the concrete, eventually leaving uneven, pockmarked surface.
Cleaning and Sealing your Exposed Aggregate Driveway, Porch, Sidewalk, Pool-deck or Patio is an easy and inexpensive way to keep the area around your home looking amazing. A high-quality Sealer can add years of life to your Exposed Aggregate Stone Driveway, Sidewalk, Porch, Pool-Deck or Patio. Sealing your Driveway, Patio, Sidewalk, Pool-Decks and other Exposed Aggregate Surfaces will also make it easier to keep clean and will drastically enhance the appearance.
Applying a Exposed Aggregate Sealer to an Exposed Aggregate Surface can improve both its performance and appearance. These Expose Aggregate Sealers are typically film forming acrylic sealer that can help protect against spalling, dusting, efflorescence, freeze-thaw damage, stains, deicing salts, and abrasion. A Exposed Aggregate Sealer will also enhance the color of the Aggregate, accentuating its depth and richness.
