Another popular concrete style that is suitable for driveways, walkways or patios is exposed aggregate. At J R Contracting in Essex County, we mix 100 percent beach stone aggregate to the concrete. Once poured, we use piston pressure to expose the surface layer of the concrete, revealing the smooth textured beach stones embedded within the concrete mixture for an organic, casual yet sophisticated style.
Unlike stamped concrete, exposed aggregate is naturally coloured. The soft shades of beach stone make it an ideal option for driveways, walkways and patios as it doesn’t absorb the sun’s rays and give off heat as asphalt does. It is also a low-maintenance and non-slip surface. Whether your home is finished in white siding, red brick or any other colour or finish, exposed aggregate will add a level of charm that no other decorative surface will.
