Concrete Stamping

If you want to pump up the surface of your concrete, concrete stamping is the best way to go about it without spending too much. Whether it is a driveway or interior flooring, concrete stamping can quickly enhance your dull-looking concrete into a beautiful one with the different textures, patterns, and colors available for you to choose from.

The process of concrete stamping happens not after the surface has hardened. The process is done while the concrete has not dried up yet. This technique makes your options limitless when it comes to the style and design you want for your concrete. Your concrete can look like it is made from granite, bricks, cobblestones, tile, or wood without you having to spend the same amount on the material.

If you are still not convinced that concrete stamping is the best way to jazz up your concrete, here are some of the benefits of using this technique over other construction materials.

Cost

Concrete stamping is generally much expensive than the regular concrete but costs a lot lesser than other construction materials. It is a good alternative if you want your concrete to look like bricks, tiles, or granite, which costs more than concrete stamping. It is transported to the site as a liquid and poured on site that is also why it is more cost-effective than other products.

Variety

There are a lot of available options when it comes to texture, pattern, and color for concrete stamping. You can even customize or mix and match the options to fit your desired style.

Base color and release powder color.

One color is used for the body, and another color is chosen to accentuate the body of the stamped concrete. In most cases, the base color is lighter than the release powder color. It is much better to limit the colors to two because it gives a more natural look to the concrete. Acid staining is also a good option if you want to have a different look than that of the base and powder release color.

Patterns

Patterns are almost limitless with concrete stamping, but the most requested patterns are cobblestones, slate, brick, and random stone. These are the ones we usually have on hand, but if you have something else in mind, we can order it for you.

Borders

If you want your concrete to have a clean and more defined look, we can put border to enhance its look even more. It can take more time to install it and usually costs more, but it is worth it after seeing the results.

Versatility

Stamped concrete is not limited for driveways. You can use it for porches, pool decks, and entryways. You can also use this procedure for your home interior where other materials don’t usually work.

Ease of Installation

Concrete stamping is one of the easiest materials to install. There are only three steps for concrete stamping, which includes pouring, stamping, and sealing. Other products take more time to install because the contractors have to make sure every piece is correctly laid and cut. They also need to cut and shape pieces that will fit the edges of the surface. Because stamped concrete comes in the form of a liquid, it naturally takes the form of the shape it is poured into, which makes it easier to install it.

Stamping on Existing Surfaces

If you have an existing driveway and you and to install concrete stamp to it, you don’t have to worry about demolishing the driveway to make it possible. We can add an extra layer over the existing one and pour stamp into it before the concrete hardens.
