Seeded aggregate is a type of decorative concrete application that achieved by distributing aggregate by hand onto a concrete surface before it sets. It provides a way to display beautiful aggregates—such as pebbles, seashells, glass, and more—right on your concrete surface.Contact us
Seeded aggregate surfaces are eye-catching, displaying the beauty of a material of your choice. Other benefits:
Seeded aggregate can be installed in just about any location. Here are a few common spots:
After a concrete slab is poured, aggregate is distributed onto the surface by hand before the concrete sets.
One of the many benefits of seeded aggregate surfaces is that they can be customized to meet the needs of the client. Coming in a wide array of colors and sizes, there’s an aggregate for any style clients might look for. Here are a few variables to consider when looking at aggregates:
Yes. Like any other decorative concrete surface, seeded aggregate should be sealed. A high-quality sealer will protect it from general wear and tear and lengthen its lifespan. See more benefits of sealing decorative concrete.
You can work with your contractor to determine how much you want your aggregate embedded into the surface. Exposure ranges from slightly exposed to very visible.
Because installing a seeded aggregate surface requires applying the aggregate by hand, you have more control over the design. The ability to customize where the aggregate is placed creates the opportunity to get very creative with unique decorative effects—whereas with exposed aggregate (which is combined with the concrete mix), there’s a more uniform look.
