Five Reasons to Choose Exposed Aggregate Concrete Around Your Pool

Share This Post

With so many options out there, it can be overwhelming to choose the perfect flooring solution for your pool area.

So, we’ve rounded up the top five reasons why to choose exposed aggregate concrete pool edging for you and your family to enjoy for years to come.

1.   Safety first

It’s not surprising that safety comes in at number one on our list of pros for exposed aggregate concrete! The surface around your swimming pool is one of the most important areas in terms of safety for your family. The combination of kids running around and a wet surface is enough to stress any parent out, so let us give you the peace of mind of having non-slip pool surrounds.

Exposed aggregate concrete provides grip and traction that other materials don’t offer. Unsurprisingly, slip-resistant exposed aggregate concrete is one of the most popular finishes in Australia, loved by local councils and authorities for public swimming pool surrounds.

2.   Keeps its cool under your feet

Exposed aggregate concrete doesn’t get as hot as other types of flooring, which is why it is the preferred option for pool surrounds. One advantage of aggregate is that it dissipates heat and keeps the surface cool on those hot summer days.

It releases heat slowly, so even though it can get hot like all surfaces, it won’t be painfully so, making it tolerable even for those with sensitive skin.

3.   Easy to maintain

Yet another benefit of exposed aggregate concrete is its low maintenance nature. Unlike other surfaces such as decking which needs regular polishing and the gaps amongst tiles often needing cleaning, it won’t cause homeowners a headache. 

With very few gaps, exposed aggregate concrete’s texture doesn’t let much dirt settle within it, so it just requires an occasional hose down or pressure wash to keep clean. Minimal upkeep is a win in our books!

4.   Stands the test of time

The mixture of stones and cement in exposed aggregate concrete forms a durable and long-lasting material, perfect for pool surrounds where surfaces are prone to erosion. 

With your pool edging project, we will professionally seal the surface to retain its beauty and natural appearance long after our job is done.

5.   Endless design choices

Last but certainly not least, exposed aggregate concrete offers endless design options, coming in an array of colours, shapes and sizes. 

With an exposed aggregate pool edge, you will be able to choose from a range of custom styles to match your pool perfectly.

Our pool edging is a customised and stylish addition to your new or renovated outdoor space.
