Frequently Asked Questions

Stamped concrete is a new, inexpensive, fast technique to bring the look of natural services to walkways, patios, driveways, sidewalks, decks, pool decks and much more.

Stamped concrete has been around for years but wasn't very impressive at first. Only expensive commercial applications looked decent, however, today's new texturizing and pigmenting procedures breathe new life into concrete stamping. It is now widely available and appreciated by homeowners eager to improve the exteriors of their homes.

What is Stamped Concrete?
Stamped concrete involves pouring a normal slab of concrete as has been done for centuries for driveways, walkways, patios, etc. While the concrete is still pliable, patterns, textures and dies are impressed onto it. For many years, a simpler form of stamped concrete was often seen that merely duplicated patterns. But the newer types of stamped concrete impart textures that reproduce many different surfaces such as cobblestones, brick, pavers, wood, seashells, and more. Also, pigment is usually added to stamped concrete to further duplicate the look of such patterns.

Why Stamped Concrete Instead of the Original Surfaces?
Brick, pavers, and cobbles look great, but since they form a surface of many interlocking pieces, they are susceptible to frost-heave and other changes in the underlying surface. Also, there is more room for weeds and pests to penetrate through the cracks. Stamped concrete is a continuous solid piece with few expansion cracks which reduces the maintenance. The "cracks" in stamped concrete are simply impressions partially stamped into the service.

Does Stamped Concrete Look as Good as Brick, Pavers, Cobbles, etc?
Aesthetically, it's extremely close. Especially after it has been installed and natural dirt and wear take hold. Stamped concrete attempts to duplicate the look of natural surfaces such as stone and wood plank flooring. It looks great on its own terms, but it can never be mistaken for the real thing. There is a large selection of surfaces to choose from and they all look good.

Can I "Do it Yourself" Stamped Concrete?
It is not recommended to try it yourself. Mistakes are costly! The process of laying stamped concrete is almost an art. Not only that, but special tools and an experienced crew of up to four people are needed. Save yourself the frustration and find a good concrete contractor who has experience in laying stamped concrete.

What is the Procedure of Laying Stamped Concrete?
- Concrete is poured into forms laid out in the shape of the final product.
- Color is added either in the mixer (integral coloring to color the entire mixture) or after the concrete is poured (broadcast coloring to create intricate designs).
- A release agent is applied allowing the easy removal of the texturizing mats
- Texturizing mats are laid in succession. Since there are usually not enough mats to cover the entire surface, when one is finished it is applied to another area of the concrete.
- The concrete must dry for 24 hours.
- The release agent is washed off.
-A  clear coat sealer is applied.
