Expert Decorative Design Concrete by Patriarch Construction Calgary
Patterned concrete is a fresh way to get a fresh look on your concrete. It has been used on driveways, walkways, and patios.
With one popular method, a driveway can be poured and at some point, before the concrete dries, grout lines can be “drawn” into the concrete. This gives the appearance that tile was laid in the driveway. Or, gaps can also be slightly drawn into the cement to make it look like the driveway was laid with bricks.
Some of these patterns can be created with stamped concrete patterns. A special template is used to force the pattern into the concrete before it dries. To add variety, the concrete can be stained with the color of your choice, whether red brick, brownstone or a host of other colors.
If you’re interested in doing doing patterned concrete for your project, be sure and contact us to discuss it in detail.
Exposed Aggregate, A Decorative Design Concrete Option Done Right by Patriarch Construction in Calgary
Another popular look that we enjoy doing for our customers is exposed aggregate. This product involves taking natural stones and embedding them into the cement by hand, leaving them slightly exposed at the surface. This gives the surface an attractive texture and a fresh look for your project.
A similar alternative is to go with micro exposed concrete, where the stones are smaller, like pebbles. These are also pushed into the cement by hand in similar fashion. In fact, sand is also used as a much finer texture element for “micro exposure”.
If you’re interested in finding out if exposed aggregate will be a good option for you, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Exposed aggregate vs. stamped concrete – which is better?The choice between these two options depends much on a person’s preference and style.
Exposed aggregate is a combination of pebbles and slightly larger stones. People who prefer a rustic style may be inclined to choose this one. It’s complementary to several landscapes and is more budget-friendly.
Stamped concrete is where patterns are stamped into the concrete to bring a sense of uniformity to your overall look. The geometric patterns give the cement a more refined look.
