Stamped Concrete Decorative Concrete
Stamped Concrete is the process of adding texture and color to concrete to make it resemble stone, brick, slate, cobblestone and many other products found in nature including wood, fossils, shells and many more. This limitless array of possibilities combined with great durability and lower cost than natural products makes Stamped Concrete an easy choice for new construction and renovation projects. The installation consists of pressing molds into the concrete while the concrete is still in its plastic state. Color is achieved by using dry shakes, color hardeners, powder or liquid releases, integral colors, or acid stains. All these products may be combined to create even more intricate designs. Stamped concrete may be used on driveways, patios, commercial roads and parking lots and even interior floors. Stamped concrete is a desirable finish to concrete areas, however with time and wear the color dyes fade and the surface looks patchy and unpresentable. There are many re-coloring options which can completely restore and rejuvenate the color and presentation of faded stamped concrete.
