Frequently asked questions

What is the Exposed Aggregate Concrete process?2021-06-07T05:21:00+00:00
  • STAGE 1: Excavation, Boxing up, Crushed Rock and Reinforcement Mesh installation

    Your site will be excavated, and any excess soil is removed. Timber form work will also be laid around the area to be concreted. Steel mesh will then be placed within the area to be concreted. Any drainage requirements are also completed at this stage. The time frame on for this stage depends on the size of your job.

  • STAGE 2: Concrete installation

    The concrete will be barrowed, pumped or spat into position to be spread, screeded, and edged all in one day.

  • STAGE 3: Exposing of Aggregate – (Only applies to Exposed Aggregate Concrete)

    The concrete will be left to cure overnight and then be cleaned off using a high-pressure cleaner exposing the aggregate.

  • STAGE 4: Cutting of Expansion Joints

    The cutting of expansion joints “Control joints” are cut the either the same day as exposing the aggregate or up to 5 days after the pouring of the concrete depending on the weather conditions and the mix chosen. Control Joints are a necessary part of concrete and help allow your concrete movement.

    Cuts are placed in the areas that have a high potential to crack and generally every three lineal meters of concrete.

  • STAGE 5: Sealing

    Sealing your concrete is a process that will enhance the colour of your concrete giving it a glossy shine, but its benefits are in protecting your concrete from external stains associated with dirt, oil and grime.

    Sealing your concrete can only happen when the concrete has completely dried from the cutting and cleaning stage. Sealing may happen on the same day as cutting and cleaning or in the following days, depending on when it is dry.
