Another alternative to standard concrete for driveway resurfacing is exposed aggregate concrete. This process leaves a decorative, colorful and rough finish on the concrete.
How is aggregate different than standard concrete? Aggregate is laid in a similar way to concrete, but the smooth top is washed away to reveal a surface that is pebbly yet even enough to walk on and remove snow from. It’s possible to add shading to the concrete to heighten the color.
Maintenance: periodic resealing
Estimated life span: 25 to 40 years
Pros: requires minimal maintenance; provides traction in winter with textured surface; hides chips in surface
Cons: vulnerable to cracking
