What are exposed aggregate pavers?
Exposed aggregate pavers are sometimes called shot blast pavers, and they are essentially an aggregate paver that has had the top layer removed to expose the materials and textures. They not only look great but, are highly versatile and withstand the elements here in Perth with ease.
How are exposed aggregate pavers made?
Exposed aggregate pavers are a precast concrete paver made of a combination of cement, gravel, water, colour, and sand. This is put into a mould on a conveyor where the ingredients combine via vibration. It sets and then is removed from the mould. As mentioned, a thin top layer is removed to expose the materials in the aggregate.

Why exposed aggregate pavers are a match made in heaven for hardscaping projects in Perth

When deciding on a type of exposed aggregate paver, it's a good idea to consider the rest of your outdoor space and what will work cohesively. With temperatures as hot as they get here in Perth, lighter coloured pavers are a better option as they don't heat up as much as darker ones, this is especially true if they will be in full sun for a good part of the day. If you intend on using exposed aggregate pavers for a driveway, you'll need to make sure they are thick enough to hold the weight of vehicles. Typically, a driveway should have a paver that is 60mm thick at the minimum.
