Exposed aggregate driveways are made of concrete with stones or sand embedded in them. Hence the name 'aggregate'. Perhaps you think it sounds dull. However, we expose the natural beauty of the stones or sand by the finishing process. Thus you will find it more interesting than plain concrete. Also, it comes in many styles that you can customise to suit your design.
Modern Exposed Aggregate Driveways
Do you remember the old 'pebblecrete' driveways? They used to be quite basic because they were just grey concrete with blackish-grey rough stones. But things have changed! We can show you how modern exposed aggregate driveways can now be artistic parts of your landscaping.
For many years people have loved exposed aggregate driveways for several reasons:
Your budget will benefit from the low cost relative to paving and other types of driveway. This is one of the reasons for the popularity of exposed aggregate.
DurabiIity & easy maintenance:
Exposed aggregate is long-lasting, hard wearing and low maintenance. It's a good option in all types of climate and weather. In addition it handles high traffic by feet and vehicles. And furthermore it discourages weeds - you'll have less work to do!
Your driveway can be customised with materials, colours and patterns. We can achieve different appearances with the different materials and techniques available. You can choose the colour of the background concrete, as well as the colour, texture and type of stones. The percentage of each type of stone, and the colour of the setting, is up to you.
Here are some examples of aggregate types:
In addition, the pebblecrete can be sprayed on with stencilling in your choice of patterns.
Thus you can create a unique driveway to match the style of your property. Whether your home or business is traditional style or bold and modern, the driveway can be made to enhance it.
