What Is Stamped Concrete?

Ever wish you can spruce up the exterior of your house but regular concrete, wood, or pavers just wont cut it? Lately a new trend has started. Stamped concrete orDecorative concrete uses different textures, colors and stamps actually added to and pressed into the concrete to create an eye catching addition to your house. Stamped concrete can be used to create patios, walkways, driveways, retaining walls and more.

It all starts within the concrete its self. A base pigment is added to the cement while still in the truck to give it its first color. Then it is poored into your prefered form for your driveway, patio, walkway, etc. While the concrete slab is still wet, another color in a powdered form called releaser is added. This will give your cement a two tone color look but also prevent the stamps from sticking. Also while the concrete is wet, other patterens and textures on the borders or wherever needed will be added. To finalize the process the stamped concrete will be cleaned when it dries, saw cut to help prevent cracking, and sealed to retain the color and give it a beautiful glossy look.
