The Best Exposed Aggregate Concrete Patios and Driveways in Macomb County, MI
Through many years of experience working with a diverse range of decorative concrete techniques, Biondo Cement has mastered the art of exposed aggregate. To reveal the beauty of exposed aggregate, first pea stone is used in the concrete mix rather than the limestone aggregate. Next after pouring and finishing the cement a retarder is applied to the surface to prevent the top layer from drying.
We then cover the cement with plastic for 24 hours. The following day the surface of cement known as the “cream” has to be striped using a commercial power washer to expose the beauty that lies beneath. The pea stone that is exposed gives the concrete a durable and rugged surface that will last years with limited maintenance. Exposed aggregate is an exceptional surface that can withstand the extreme weather of Michigan. Whether it endures direct sunlight, heavy rain, snow or ice the rough surface of exposed aggregate will last. Another key feature is that because of the small pea stone within the cement there is more traction and you are more unlikely to slip, even when the surface is wet.
VIEW OUR DECORATIVE CONCRETE
Biondo Cement has been hard at work to provide the industry’s most unique techniques when it comes to exposed aggregate concrete. Due to the boom in popularity of exposed aggregate patios and driveways, we are now providing homeowners with stunning designs and outstanding quality finishes. We have developed new methods of incorporating both stamped concrete and exposed aggregate in patios by exposing the pea stone on the inside of the patio, leaving the border and facing with a natural stone and stone texture finish. It is a simple yet stunning look giving homeowners the best of both worlds when it comes to decorative concrete. Check out examples of this finish in the Exposed Gallery.
