Why choose exposed aggregate concrete?
Exposed Aggregate: The Ideal Solution for Outdoor Areas
With its pebble-studded surface, exposed aggregate concrete makes the perfect choice for outdoor areas. The rough surface gives the concrete slabs added durability, in addition to maintaining a non-slippery surface.
The latter is especially important as your garden’s irrigation system can make the concrete wet all the time, and you don’t want your family members to get any fall-related injuries because of that.
Furthermore, exposed aggregate cement is also used for swimming pool sidewalks. There are plenty of ways to treat the cement’s topmost layer, creating different aesthetic looks that highlight your swimming pool while still retaining its non-slippery features.
The main takeaway here is that craftsmanship is key to realizing the full potential and styling possibilities of exposed aggregate concrete. At Skyco Group, we take pride in our expertise and innovation that drives us to push ourselves to the limits with each new project that we sign up for.
It’s also worth noting that the implementation of concrete slabs into your yard brings more benefits beyond just the looks. The concrete floors should make your backyard feel more spacious, as the better space utilization helps you make the most of each corner.
The exposed aggregate concrete can be used to define spots like your outdoor sitting area, open-air barbeque corner, and cozy fireplace. This way, your backyard will be much less cluttered, while allowing you to dedicate all the space you need for your different outdoor activities.
Why Go for Exposed Aggregate Concrete?
Exposed aggregate concrete is built to last! It’s also weather-proof by design, which means that whether you live in a hot or freezing climate, your outdoor concrete structures won’t easily budge to the wear and tear effects.
Endless Aesthetic Possibilities
Conventional concrete might come close in terms of durability. However, if there’s one area where it lags behind, it has to be its limited decorative potential. Exposed aggregate concrete comes to address such an issue with its versatile finishing options that fit nicely in different architecture styles.
You can choose your concrete’s texture and colours to match your vintage or modern exterior design, so the outdoor slabs don’t feel out of place. This can be a great opportunity for house owners to mix and match different finishes and bring a fresh look that prevents different outdoor spots from looking stale.
Cost-Efficient In the Long Term
Doing a makeover to your outdoor space is a huge investment, and you want to make sure your renovations last for years to come. We’ve got some good news for you, as the exposed aggregate concrete is easy to maintain and doesn’t require major repairs down the line.
The concrete slabs will look as good as new after a thorough wash, unlike wooden flooring that retains stains. Another issue that wooden floors tend to develop over time is retaining uneven surfaces, which isn’t a concern with concrete floors.
