Exposed Aggregate Concrete of San Antonio

Exposed Aggregate / Pebble Finish is a style of concrete finish that has been used for a very long time in residential projects. Exposed-aggregate / Pebble Finish concrete offers a wide range of textures and an unlimited color selection through a process called stripping and seeding. This makes exposed aggregate one of the most popular and attractive decorative finishes for Concrete Patios, Walkways and Driveways. With exposed aggregate, we take a plain surface and strip it to reveal a beautiful aggregate stone. With a Pebble Finish, we add coloful pebbles and apply it on top of fresh concrete to create a beautiful finish that can be sealed for an exceptional finish.
