how Fairfax contractor installs your exposed aggregate concrete project starts with a plan. We will remove or excavate the area where you want to install an exposed concrete aggregate project. My company, Fairfax Contractor, has seasoned Masonry pros that will take your project from planning to completion. The first step in installing an exposed aggregate job is to form up the project. We will need your approval of how we formed up your concrete pour before we pour it. Once the forms are in place, we will install the necessary #57 gravel and grade the project appropriately. Your project is residential in Northern Virginia we will install welded wire mesh. The actual pore of the concrete will get the correct design mix before the concrete. For an exposed aggregate concrete pour, it will be a mixture of pea gravel, concrete sand, and Portland cement. We typically use a dyed concrete mixture utilizing Davis Colors or an increate color dye. All of our exposed aggregate projects utilize interval concrete design mixtures. We will custom order your concrete to make the perfect exposed aggregate concrete project in Northern Virginia. It could be a patio, driveway, walkway, or a commercial project it always starts the same. We order a design mix from the local concrete suppliers with exact specifications. After your exposed aggregate project is formed, we will pour the exposed aggregate concrete into the forms. Once the concrete has been secreted and leveled, we will go to the next step. The next step is to put magnesium on both bull floats and magnesium hand floats to smooth out the concrete surface. Once the concrete has been finished, we will place a concrete chemical that will stop the hydration of the top 1/8 of an inch of the pour. Once your exposed aggregate project has been treated with the chemicals to stop hydration, we will place a plastic covering over the area. Then the next day, because the top 1/8 inch of the concrete pour never hydrated because of those chemicals we utilized, we will power wash off the un hydrated concrete exposing the beautiful pea gravel finish. After the concrete is hydrated, we will seal the exposed aggregate to give it an amazing look. Forms removed, Fairfax Contractor can use a top cast to give you over 11 different finishes.
