Exposed aggregate concrete is fast becoming the preferred concrete finish for residential, commercial and civil surfacing projects in Adelaide. Exposed aggregate is achieved using either a pre-mixed concrete blend, containing stones in a variety of textures and colours, or by hand-seeding the stones on to a wet concrete surface. After the concrete is poured, it is treated with a surface retardant, which allows the underlying concrete to harden, while the top layer remains soft. After a few hours, the utmost layer of concrete is washed away, exposing the stone, or aggregate, beneath, and revealing a raw, yet sophisticated, finish. The professional team at Adelaide City Concreting have extensive experience hand-seeding and finishing exposed aggregate concrete in Adelaide in a multitude of settings, including driveways, pool
If concrete surfaces conjure up a cold, grey and industrial image in your mind, you may be pleasantly surprised to find out just how far concrete technology has come. Concrete can be stained, stamped and sealed to resemble almost any flooring surface you can imagine—a stained concrete slab can be polished to a marble finish, giving your home an opulent feel, without the hefty price tag; concrete can be stamped and treated to give the appearance of warm, timber flooring, but is incredibly longwearing and much easier to clean than authentic timber; and patterned concrete, also known as ‘pattern paving’ provides a durable, long-lasting alternative to outdoor pavers, which often lift and separate with time, allowing weeds and plant life to emerge, and creating an
