Exposed aggregate concrete
What can it be and how can you expose it? Exposed aggregate concrete is a type of decorative concrete, which reveals the true beauty of concrete. It is not only looks very good, but also is durable and skid-resistant material.
Exposed aggregate concrete is achieved by removing the top layer of cement paste and revealing the underlying aggregate.
Advantages of Exposed Aggregate Concrete:
- It does not doesn’t cost a lot, to create this decorative effect, because not much additional materials needed. Basically, you need a surface retardant, sprayer and a garden hose.
- It is a fairly easy task to do and not require long time or specific professional to do it.
- There are various types, colors and sizes for the exposed décor
- It also blends well with other decorative concrete
- Almost no maintenance is required, except some occasional cleaning with water
Stamped concrete also can be called textured or imprinted concrete. It is a concrete that replicates stones such as flagstone, tile brick and even wood. This type of decoration is perfect for pool decks, driveways, entries and patios.
Stamped concrete is a very popular option among homeowners because if offers wide variety of patterns and colors, and with all that it is much cheaper than real flagstone or pavers.
Broom Finished Concrete
This is, as you may say, regular way to do and finish a concrete. Of course, there is a smooth finish, but broom finished provides a high-traction surface and better drainage (note, broom marks should always be running towards the drain). However, if you don’t care about drainage, you can create decorative effects by running the broom texture in various directions.
And lastly, colored concrete
Concrete doesn’t have to be grey. They are so many different colors and products to color concrete – it is amazing. Colored concrete cost more than plain grey, but it worth an investment. Prices are not crazy-biting, but the result will look wonderful. It can help your concrete patio or walkway to match your overall design.
Some of the products can be used on existing concrete too, which is a great news, if you don’t want to install new concrete element, instead of the old one.
So how concrete gets colored? Color for the concrete is not a paint, dye or stain; it is pigments. Pigments are available in powder, liquid or granular forms. Iron oxide pigment particles are 10 times smaller than a particle of the cement. When color pigment is added to the cement based mix, the smaller pigment particles cover the larger cement particle.
