Stamped concrete is a great way to add texture and design to your patio, driveway, or inside your home. Concrete is durable and can last for thousands of years. Stamped concrete can increase your home’s value as well as add a rich texture and feel.
Stamped concrete designs are everywhere, the great thing about concrete is you can design your own stamp custom to the look and feel of your home. Concrete provides the perfect canvas and creates an affordable replica of more expensive materials.
Concrete is fast drying, so most stamped concrete projects are completed very quickly. Once the concrete starts to dry it is very difficult to undo, should you change your mind about a design, texture, or coloring. Make sure you ask a lot of questions when working with your contrator.
Some ideas for stamped concrete areas may include:
- Porches and Entryways
- Pool Decks
- Stairs and Steps
- Kitchen Coutertops
Care & Maintenance for Stamped Concrete
Concrete will last for years if properly taken care of. To properly maintenance your concrete, make sure to sweep up any materials and keep a clean surface, then wash throughly with a water hose. For special care to heavily exposed pavement like your driveway, have it sealed (concrete sealcoating) every couple of years. Always ask your builder about the proper stamped concrete maintenance.
