What Our Customers Are Saying

Questions & Answers

How much do exposed aggregate driveways cost?

Between $100-150 per m2. As exposed aggregate driveways are more labour intensive and require more technical knowledge and tradesmanship, prices are considerably higher than normal concrete.

Be wary of trades teams quoting way below this price point, as the quality of work might not be what you expect. When dealing with a piece of your home destined to last upwards of 50 years, it’s best not to cut corners.

How long does it take to install an exposed aggregate driveway?

Exposed aggregate driveways do dry faster than concrete, usually in a few hours, but still require up to 2 days to cure.

They may also be susceptible to damage for a longer period after installation in comparison to standard concrete driveways, sometimes up to 4 weeks.

It is important to look after your exposed aggregate driveway during this time, as damages in this period could reduce its longevity.

How durable are exposed aggregate driveways?

Very. They can last several years, up to a decade sometimes without needing any maintenance at all.

We do recommend however, that they are well looked after, and resealed every 4-5 years.

This could vary massively though from driveway to driveway, as some may be exposed to the elements a lot more, or have a much higher and heavier traffic load on them.

What are the advantages of exposed aggregate driveways?

First and foremost, it’s stylishness and ability to match with the property and the tastes of the owner are what really sets exposed aggregate driveways apart from standard concrete driveways.

With dozens of colour schemes, styles and textures, the options are truly endless and we guarantee you will find a combination that aligns with your desires.

They are also very durable, sustainable and low maintenance.

Does a 4-inch concrete slab need rebar?

Yes. However, the thickness of your rebar should never be more than 12% (or ⅛) of your concrete slab. For a 4 inch slab, you shouldn’t be using steel thicker than
half an inch thick. If you’re not sure though, it’s best to contact our team as we are licensed tradesmen and can affordably install concrete slabs for you.
