Benefits of Exposed Aggregate Patios

Exposed aggregate patios are not just a visually appealing addition to your outdoor space; they bring a host of functional benefits that make them an ideal choice for any property. Here’s a closer look at what makes them stand out:


  • Withstands Heavy Use: These patios are built to last. The robust nature of exposed aggregate means it can handle heavy foot traffic. Playful children, pets, or a bustling garden party are a walk in the park.
  • Resistant to Wear and Tear: Unlike other materials that may crack or chip over time, exposed aggregate maintains its integrity, resisting the usual wear and tear that comes with regular use.
  • Longevity: This durability translates into a longer lifespan for your patio, ensuring that it remains a functional and beautiful part of your home for years to come.

Slip Resistance

  • Safety First: The textured surface of the exposed aggregate provides natural slip resistance. This is particularly important in areas that are prone to getting wet, making it a safe choice for pool surrounds or outdoor dining areas.
  • Peace of Mind: For families with young children or for commercial spaces where safety is a priority, this feature offers peace of mind, knowing that the risk of slips and falls is significantly reduced.

Weather Resistance

  • Withstands Diverse Climates: Whether you’re in a region with harsh winters or scorching summers, exposed aggregate patios can withstand a wide range of weather conditions without losing their aesthetic appeal.
  • Low Maintenance in All Seasons: This resilience means less maintenance and repair work across different seasons, saving you time and effort in upkeep.

Beyond these functional benefits, exposed aggregate patios also significantly enhance the value and aesthetic appeal of your property:

Enhances Property Value

  • Attractive to Potential Buyers: The durability and low maintenance nature of exposed aggregate makes it an attractive feature for potential home buyers, should you ever decide to sell your property.
  • Boosts Curb Appeal: A well-designed exposed aggregate patio can elevate the overall look of your property, making it stand out in the neighbourhood and potentially increasing its market value.

Aesthetic Appeal

  • Unique Visual Texture: The unique texture and variety of colours available in exposed aggregate provide a visually interesting and sophisticated look that can’t be replicated with other materials.
  • Customization Options: With the ability to customize the colour and type of aggregate, you can create a patio that perfectly complements your home’s exterior and reflects your personal style.
  • Timeless Beauty: Unlike trends that come and go, the classic look of exposed aggregate remains stylish and appealing, ensuring your patio never looks outdated.

Maintenance and Care

We did mention that concrete aggregate needs very low maintenance. A little sweep here, a gentle rinse there, and that’s all it needs to stay good as new. To keep the party going for years, we suggest a quick reseal now and then, which our friendly team can handle with ease.

Q: What are the different types of exposed aggregate concrete options available?

A: There are several types to choose from, including natural aggregate (using natural stones for a unique look), coloured aggregate (using coloured stones for vibrancy), polished aggregate (for a sleek look), sandblasted aggregate (for a textured surface), stamped concrete (mimicking other materials), aggregate with glass (for a sparkling surface), and aggregate with shells (for a beachy look).

Q: How do I choose the right concrete design for my project?

A: Consider the location of the surface, the overall aesthetics of your property, the level of durability needed, your budget, and the amount of maintenance you’re willing to undertake. Each design has its own benefits and considerations.

Q: Is exposed aggregate concrete more expensive than regular concrete?

A: The cost can vary depending on the type of aggregate used and the complexity of the design. Generally, it may be slightly more expensive than regular concrete due to the additional labour and materials involved in creating the exposed look.
