Our Process

Exposed aggregate is done to give the long lasting effect and give you the quality and reliability that you pay for. We begin by excavating the ground and boxing it in. We will then add and use reinforced steel. We will lay down the concrete and focus our attention on every detail of the surface. We next lay down a retarder to expose the top of the concrete with an aggregate that will be washed off in the next 24 hours to give you the finished look for your concrete. The next step is to cut in expansion joints where the points require. After this is finished, we acid wash the area to give the stones a cleaner, nicer appearance. We then use a high-quality concrete sealer to give a long lasting shine and protection to the concrete. This process will take generally three to four days to complete.
