Finished concrete.

Exposed Finished process – This surface finish is a two-stage process. Initially the pole form is coated with a “surface retarder”, which delays the hardening of the thin outer layer of the concrete. After the pole is cured, the pole surface is pressure washed with water to expose the aggregate. This finish is a rough finish, with large portions of the aggregate showing. No sealers are typically applied to this pole.
