Exposed Aggregate Concrete Perth

Hardcore Concrete Designs: Professional Exposed Aggregate Concrete in Perth

There is a growing demand for exposed aggregate concrete in Perth and the rest of Australia. Exposed aggregate is popular worldwide as a concrete driveway finish, for garden walkways, and for many other residential and commercial applications. Exposed aggregate alfresco spaces are ideal for both residential and commercial applications as they hold many benefits and barely any drawbacks.

We spend lots of time and money making our homes and gardens comfortable and attractive. Our home is, after all, where we spend most of our time when we are not working. Seeing as your home is likely the largest investment you will make during your lifetime, you may as well add practical improvements to your home that are visually appealing and assists in increasing its value.

In addition to a washed aggregate driveway, you can also opt for a washed aggregate concrete finish for your patio or install exposed aggregate around the pool. Hardcore Concrete Designs is a professional supplier and installer of exposed aggregate surfaces in Perth, with years of experience and hundreds of happy customers under our belt.

Benefits of Aggregate Driveways in Perth

There is no shortage of options regarding the choice of driveway finishes in Perth. Gravel driveways, paved driveways, solid concrete, and tarred driveways have always been popular options, but they all have their drawbacks. Gravel often requires a lot of maintenance as loose gravel tends to shift with use. Paved driveways are hard-wearing and long-lasting, but with improper grading of pavers away from your foundation and the substandard installation of the paver base can cause shifting, excess settling, puddling and sinking.

Tarred driveways tick all the boxes, being hard-wearing, attractive, and easy to keep clean, but they are prohibitively expensive, which puts you at risk of overinvesting in the property – a cost that you are unlikely to fully recover if you decide to sell.

  • Exposed aggregates are just as durable as any plain concrete surface, and they certainly handle heavy traffic better than natural stone. Most importantly, exposed aggregate surfaces can survive bouts of heavy traffic and harsh weather for many years, and they require little to no maintenance to do so. 
  • One of the more obvious benefits of exposed concrete aggregate for Perth homes is traction. It is much more slip-resistant than most finishes, making it ideal for high rainfall areas and sloped driveways. The rougher surface also makes it the perfect finish for garden paths and on patios.
  • Perth exposed aggregate is extremely hard-wearing and long-lasting. Because exposed aggregate is weather resistant and it is built to last so you won’t ever need to replace or repair it. Because it is skid resistant you won’t need to do any heavy duty cleaning. Also, it is able to withstand heavy traffic making it extremely durable. 
  • If doing your part for the environment is important to you, then exposed aggregate is the way to go. Many recycled materials can be used in your exposed aggregate, including slag. The most popular decorative aggregates are richly coloured natural stones such as basalts, granite, quartz, or limestone. But you can also use manufactured materials such as recycled coloured glass. Even seashells and other interesting objects can be seeded into the concrete surface. 
  • Exposed aggregate finishes require very little maintenance, except for the occasional sweep or rinse with the hose and periodic resealing. Aggregate is the easiest and cheapest surface finish to maintain in the long run, while tarred surfaces, by comparison, are extremely expensive.
  • In terms of aesthetic appeal, exposed aggregate is one of the best finishes out there. It is available in nearly any colour imaginable, meaning whatever your fancy, you will easily find an aggregate finish that perfectly suits your tastes.
