Exposed aggregate is great when it is clean and in areas where you won't be walking on it barefoot; however, for areas you might be walking on it barefoot such as pool decks or patios there might be a problem. Exposed aggregate concrete, especially when sharp edged stones are used, can hurt your feet when walking on it barefoot.

We have a solution that will hone the stones down creating a smoother surface that will be easier to clean and will not hurt your feet when walking on it. We have options to seal the concrete afterwards if wanting to add a shine to the surface.

Decorative Concrete Staining

Decorative concrete staining is a great way to add color to exterior surfaces. Concrete stains are transparent and will not flake off do to the fact they are penetrating into the concretes pores instead of sitting on the surface like paint does. There are over twenty exterior colors and colors can be combined to create molted affects on the concrete. Practiclly any structurally sound exterior concrete surface can be stained; whether it is a driveway, patio, sidewalk, or pool deck.

Exposed aggregate concrete does not have to look dull. Sealing the aggregate will brighten the different colored aggregate and will give a nice wet look that is not slippery. The sealer also helps lock in the aggregate and prevents them from breaking loose from the concrete. It is a great option for driveways, sidewalks, patios, and pool decks.
