Exposed aggregate concrete is a type of concrete where the top layer is removed to expose the added aggregates. As we have outlined in a previous article, concrete is made up of four key components: cement, water, fine aggregate (i.e. sand) and course aggregate (which can be rock or gravel). The installation of concrete requires pouring this mixture into the carefully prepared space and letting it settle and dry. With regular concrete installations, once the mixture is settled into place within the forms, the process to begin finishing the concrete starts, and it includes compacting the surface and smoothing out any depressions or high areas to create a smooth surface.
