Stamped concrete is concrete that is patterned and/or textured or embossed to resemble brick, slate, flagstone, stone, tile, wood, and various other patterns and textures. Stamped concrete is commonly used for patios, sidewalks, driveways, pool decks, and interior flooring.

There are three procedures used in stamped concrete which separate it from other concrete procedures; the addition of a base color, the addition of an accent color, and stamping a pattern into the concrete. These three procedures provide stamped concrete with a color and shape similar to the natural building material. It also is longer lasting than paved stone, and still resembles the look.

Stamped concrete driveways are also cost-effective over alternative materials such as pavers, or natural stone. Installation is quick, long lasting and can mimic natural materials in color and design, and is therefore, more economical. In hard economic times such as these, this is something we can all look forward to.

Design flexibility if one of the biggest reasons for stamped concrete’s popularity, especially due to the various designs and shapes of existing driveways, landscaping, etc. It can be textured, colored and shaped to achieve almost any look imaginable. It can complement various architectures, can provide traction on public walkways, and can blend with nature in all types of landscapes. It’s overall adaptibility is great, in conjunction with superior aesthetic appeal makes it a great solution.
