Re: Advice on Driveway Concrete2

Hi, Would really like like some advice/feedback on what concrete to use on the driveway.
Trying to decide between coloured concrete or aggregate concrete.
Any advice or thoughts would be much appreciated.
I would also be in the same situation down the track in the next 3-4 months
I would personally go with aggregate concrete for it looks. However I very well understand that it is more costly as compared to the coloured one.
Have you shortlisted any specific colours for the driveway ? I am not sure if coloured concrete have many options with regards to the colours.
I hope this helps !

Me too. Looking for some suggestions re this as well. If anyone can share pictures and the type of coloured concrete or aggregated concrete they used. I'm leaning towards a lighter colour.

If you are going for exposed aggregate make sure you choose a pebble aggregate if you have children.
Some of the crushed rock aggregates look like they could do some damage to exposed skin if a child fell on them.

We are getting coloured grano with mesh in our garage, we had to choose from the CCS range with our builder. It is the one thing that we had to choose from a colour chart and their website. We ended up choosing "Smokey Blue" hopefully we get to see it soon as we need to decide if we will get the Alfresco done the same.
