The process of exposing aggregate has been around since the 1900s. This decorative method offers numerous advantages including a surface resistant to extreme weather and heavy traffic. The process includes removing sand and cement from the surface, exposing the decorative aggregate. Different types and sizes of aggregate are available allowing for various color and texture variations. Exposed aggregate also provides a beautiful contrast with broom finish or other decorative treatments. Little maintenance is required other than occasional cleaning and sealing. Generally, the cost for an average Expose Aggregate Driveway is $6,000 to $7,000 to complete any job over 1,000 square feet. Other costs may apply.
