Stamped concrete gives the illusion of real stone, bricks, flagstones, tiles, etc. Also called textured concrete, we imprint your concrete with your choice of stamp/textured pattern. With so many different patterns and designs, that’ll give your outdoor project a professional and eye-pleasing look. With stamped concrete you can achieve the same expensive appearance for far less the cost. You can choose from a variety of shades and hues for your stamped concrete. The coloring agents are mixed into the concrete. A secondary color is applied next to make it look like real stone. Then two coats of sealer are applied for protection and a high gloss look.
The Advantage to Decorative Stamped Concrete vs. Natural Stone or Paver Bricks
- More affordable
- Endures the test of time
- Beautiful replica of natural stone
- Less maintenance requirements
- Impact resistant
Harsh freeze-thaw climates typical to upstate NY and the surrounding regions will crack stamped concrete. A skilled stamped concrete contractor will take advantage of well-placed saw cut control joints. Control joints are cut across the concrete to allow for movement for expansion and contraction during summer/winter months. Cutting control joints let us control where the concrete cracks and helps hide unsightly cracks from appearing on the surface of your stamped concrete.
