Stamped concrete is an excellent and low-cost alternative to brick, paving stones, and other finishes, and comes with fewer maintenance requirements. Additionally, there are no cracks or seams in stamped concrete so you can forget about weeds and grass rearing their ugly heads and ruining your nice clean surface.
Stamped concrete brings a completely custom look to your, patio, sidewalk, pool deck, or driveway. Stamped concrete is very low maintenance as opposed to individually laid brick or stone which are susceptible to weeds and heaving from freeze/thaw action. We give you the realistic appearance of stone or brick without all the maintenance.
Advantages of Stamped Concrete in Your Home
Stamped concrete is tinted before it’s poured, giving it a uniform color throughout. Then it’s stamped with a design of your choice, which can resemble stones, tiles, bricks, or anything you’d like. Here are some benefits to choosing stamped concrete for your next project.
Concrete surfaces such as driveways, patios, walkways, sidewalks, and pool decks can have a new look with decorative concrete, aka stamped concrete. Concrete can be colored to match your landscape or the exterior of your home. It can also be stamped into almost any design, giving you limitless options for customization. Stamped concrete adds instant curb appeal and aesthetic value to a property. You can maximize the return on your investment by choosing stamped concrete over plain concrete.
Concrete is also a cost-effective alternative to brick, pavers, or natural stone. Some installers find it more economical to pour concrete and apply a pattern than to haul and place individual paving stones by hand. Not to mention, it’s also easier to install and maintain, so you save on labor costs. Because it lasts so long, you won’t have to waste money repairing or replacing concrete. All around, concrete is an affordable alternative to other surface materials.
Because concrete is so durable, the only maintenance recommended is an annual resealing, to keep it from becoming chipped or cracked. Other materials can become loose or settle over time and become tripping hazards. But with concrete, other than the yearly resealing, you can spend your time enjoying your new patio, not maintaining it.
Installation is quick and the final product looks like natural materials in color and design, is durable and economical. Stamped concrete is one of the quickest and easiest materials to install. It requires less labor, so your project will be completed and ready to use in no time.
Also, when it comes to green home improvements, decorative concrete flooring is among the best options available. This is because existing concrete subfloors in a home can be used easily to create your flooring, without removing old materials that end up in a landfill. You don’t have to add new materials either, so there’s no need to buy and use fresh hardwood or carpet.
If you live in an area that endures hot, sweltering summers, then your home improvement plans should include ways to keep your home cool without running the air conditioning at full blast. Decorative concrete flooring is an ideal solution for this.
