It is a safer choice for exterior surfaces
Due to the fricative surface of the concrete, there is a highly reduced chance of slipping for any spaces that are prone to getting wet. More than being non-slip, exposed aggregate also resists skids and creates a bit of extra grip for the surface. For those who are looking for the safest option for their driveway, footpath, or poolside, exposed aggregate is the prime choice.
It is highly durable and long-lasting
In addition to being a safe type of concrete to have, exposed aggregate is a decorative concrete that also promises functionality. It gives great structural integrity and durability which has it withstanding any heavy foot or vehicle traffic and heavy weather elements. Because of this, there’s no need for any repair or replacement for a good number of years. If you are looking to use exposed aggregate, for this reason, it would be best to have it applied to your driveways and pathways.
