Exposed concrete gets its name from its ‘exposed’ aggregate concrete surface.
Unlike plain and coloured concrete which have a brushed but smoother finish, exposed concrete comprises natural textures such as pebble, shells, or silicate and crushed Quarry stone. A range of different stones are mixed into the concrete before it is delivered to site and poured.
The final texture depends on the combination of materials chosen. Rounder stones are softer on bare feet, while opting for crushed stone will give you more grip because it’s a rougher surface.
