What is exposed concrete?

Usually, the top layer of cement is smoothed off to create an even finish.

Finish Options

Water wash

The is done by washing away the surface covering the aggregate. There is no need to use chemicals or tools to remove the surface mortar. By spraying water on a surface and a little scrubbing afterwards, the desired output will be achieved. It will have an end-result that is attractive, functional, and long-lasting on top of it all.

Sandblasting

This is done by exposing the aggregate after the concrete has been set with the use of abrasive blasting. This finishing is best suitable for the clients that want a consistent and even finish. Sandblasting is ideal for surfacing the steep and vertical driveways. However, this will dull the Colour and shape of the aggregate.

Pavilion finish

This finishing is done with an acid solution used to remove cement around the aggregate. The surface is ground down before applying the solution in various depths. Doing this will result into a more slip resistant concrete that has a finer texture finish.
