Concrete stamping is the process of adding texture and color to concrete to make it resemble natural stone, brick, slate, and other natural products found in nature including wood, fossils, shells, and much more. This limitless array of possibilities, combined with greater durability and lower cost than natural products makes stamped concrete an easy choice for new construction and renovation projects.
Low Maintenance and Long Lasting
When installed properly, concrete is one of the most durable materials on earth. Properly maintained, decorative concrete will give you many years of beautiful use and added value to your home or business.
Stamped concrete is sealed with a product that contains a UV protectant to guard against color fading, as well as an acrylic surface protectant to prevent chips and scratches. Resealing to restore the original luster is quick and easy, unlike a wood deck that needs timely maintenance and still deteriorates rapidly. There are no cracks in stamped concrete for dirt and weeds to grow, unlike pavers, eliminating any need to spray weed killer, or pull weeds.
Getting concrete to look and feel like natural materials is not a simple process. It is much more labor intensive than ordinary concrete placement and requires extensive experience, knowledge, and specialized tools to achieve beautiful results. So while stamped concrete is more expensive than traditional concrete work, it is still less expensive than the professional installation of other natural materials and pavers.
