Based in Wexford we specialise in exposed aggregate concrete finishes. ‘Exposed Aggregate Concrete’ is brand new to Ireland and is perfectly suited to this country’s severe climate conditions. The exposed aggregate finish is achieved when the aggregates (stones, pebbles and sand) near the surface are revealed that would otherwise be concealed by a surface layer of cement paste. The exposed surface of the concrete reveals the natural textures and colours of numerous stones like river pebble and crushed stone. A sealer is then applied to protect and enhance the finished product.
Available to view now from our gallery are a range of sample areas / mix and colour combinations.
Benefits of Exposed Aggregate
Exposed aggregate has emerged as a beautiful and sturdy architectural paving and because of its strength, low maintenance and hard durable surface it has become a popular alternate to tarmac, matcrete and cobble lock across the world in place which include Australia, USA and Europe. It is also very effective at coping with Ireland’s cold and icy conditions due to the strong grip produced by the exposed stone texture. Preparation is the key, we ensure that the base is prepared to the highest standard to ensure that the concrete has a solid base to support it so it can withstand the test of time.
