What is Stamped Concrete?

Stamped concrete is concrete that has been styled through patterning, texturing and/or embossing to resemble different patterns and textures. It can be fabricated to give the impression that a concrete slab is actually a patio of bricks, a stone pathway or a tile floor. This technique of concrete decoration is commonly used for sidewalks, patios, driveways, pool decks and interior flooring. The versatility of stamped concrete to mimic other building materials makes it a less expensive alternative over authentic materials such as stone, slate or brick.

 

The procedures to create Stamped Concrete

There are three procedures used in stamped concrete which separate it from other concrete procedures:

  1. the addition of a base color
  2. the addition of an accent color and
  3. stamping a pattern into the concrete

These three procedures provide stamped concrete with a color and shape similar to the natural building material. The finished product will resemble whatever material you choose to emulate but will have greater longevity.

 

The value of Stamped Concrete

The value of stamped concrete repeatedly presents itself in all types of projects, domestic and commercial. From driveways, and patios to theme parks and malls, stamped concrete is chosen for its value improvements including reduced costs, an appealing final product, and easy maintenance. Along with the known durability and long-lasting feature of regular concrete, stamping adds a decorative touch making it a desirable and economical product for all.

Here are the main ways stamped concrete offers real benefits in terms of performance, cost savings, and aesthetics:

  • Reduced long-term maintenance and care.
    Over time, other surface materials such as pavers can become loose or settle, resulting in tripping hazards. Stamped concrete’s advantage is that it never needs resetting or replacing. It eliminates tripping hazards for parks, resorts, etc.
  • Less labor intensive than other surface materials.
    It is more economical to pour concrete and apply a pattern than to haul and place individual paving stones by hand
  • Increased longevity.
    Your initial investment in stamped concrete is only part of the total equation. Concrete lasts longer than other materials, is durable in nearly every type of environment, and holds up better to traffic and wear
  • Requires less maintenance.
    Stamped concrete requires minimal maintenance than most other paving materials which can add up to big savings over the surface’s lifetime
  • Increases resale value of property.
    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
