Exposed Aggregate

D.E. Contreras Construction - Exposed Aggregate Concrete Contractors in San Diego

Have you noticed concrete where you can see stones embedded in the actual concrete surface? That finished look is known as "Exposed Aggregate". An exposed aggregate finish looks beautiful on pool decks, patios, driveways, walkways and decorative concrete walls for residential and commercial projects. The main technique used is to apply a chemical retarder to the freshly finished concrete surface, which allows us more time before the concrete sets and then the cement paste is washed away from the surface revealing the stones themselves. The stone selection comes in variety of colors, shapes and sizes. And selections are mostly to region. Rounded and smooth is the most common choice over angular stones.

The stones are hand seeded into the fresh concrete surface or integrated into the batch depending on the project. Exposed aggregate can be combined with other concrete and masonry finishes to create dramatic designs. Contact us and let D.E. Contreras Construction help you create a beautiful concrete project with exposed aggregate.
