It may seem like the driveway is just a small section of the home, but how it is designed and the materials you use can make a lasting impact on your home’s curb appeal and its future valuation. There are a lot of driveway paving materials available for modern homeowners in Perth, including concrete, asphalt, clay brick pavers, and more. But when it comes to versatility, durability, and beauty, nothing comes close to the driveway material that is exposed aggregate.
A driveway installation process using exposed aggregate begins with a mixture of cement powder, sand, water, and the decorative aggregates (typically pea gravel but other aggregates can also be used). After the site preparation, the cement and decorative aggregate mix are poured and levelled off. While the surface is still wet, the contractor will spray a surface retardant to expose the decorative aggregates underneath. What you get is a textured yet durable driveway that is thoroughly modern and visually appealing.
Exposed aggregate driveways have become increasingly popular during the past few decades. More and more Perth homeowners choose this material because of its hard-wearing quality and affordable installation cost which makes it a great investment for any homeowner. When shopping for a new home, a majority of prospective buyers say that they find exposed aggregate driveways more visually appealing than properties with plain concrete driveways. They also said that the home’s market value increased when exposed aggregate is installed in a home’s driveway.
