Exposed Aggregate and Coloured Concrete: What Are The Differences?

At Pro Concreting, we realise that it may be difficult to pick what kind of concrete you want placed in your new residence. That’s why we’ve taken the opportunity to compare what differences may arise when choosing between the two. 

Exposed Aggregate: Unveiling Elegance



A decorative style of concrete that enhances the beautiful stones and pebbles which are layered within the concrete. Providing a slip-resistant finish, this technique is not only beautiful to look at, but practical as well. 


Exposed aggregate concrete can be used in a multitude of ways. Some common uses include pathways, driveways, patios and more. Not only that, indoor areas can benefit greatly by creating a seamless transition between outside and inside areas. 

Why choose this as your primary option? 

ProConcreting hosts a large range of aggregates, allowing true customisation of a home or business site. With the options available, you’ll be able to precisely choose the right materials to help complement the surroundings of your future project!


  • Enhanced Aesthetics: A beautiful finish that can greatly enhance your property. 
  • Slip Resistance: Provides a grip-heavy surface which is practical for avoiding unwanted slips or falls.
  • Durability: Able to handle heavy foot traffic, large vehicles and all kinds of weather.
  • Low Maintenance: Requires minimal upkeep.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Utilises local aggregates, minimising the carbon footprint.
  • Cost-Effective: Offers excellent value for money over time.

Coloured Concrete: A Splash of Personality



Coloured concrete is a dynamic and creative choice for those looking to infuse their projects with a unique flair. It’s an incredibly hard-wearing material used to add a decorative touch to various surfaces like driveways, walkways, patios, and pool decks.


The manufacture of coloured concrete involves integrating colourful pigments into the concrete mix at the batching stage. This method ensures the colour is not just surface deep but runs consistently through the material.


  • Durability and Longevity: Holds up exceptionally well to Australia’s often harsh weather conditions.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Offers a great deal of design flexibility.
  • Environmentally Friendly: The materials used are plentiful and sustainable.

Coloured concrete is a sustainable, durable, and visually pleasing material that empowers homeowners and designers to express their creative visions while offering a practical and cost-effective solution for various construction and landscaping applications.
