Stamped concrete is a system of adding colors, patterns and textures to a plain concrete slab at the time of pouring. The concrete is poured, colored and then imprinted with a stamp to create the appearance of natural stone. Many different textures are available that simulate slate, granite, brick, cobblestone, or even custom designs and imprinted in concrete. Borders can be created for plain, matching or contrasting patterns. This technique can also be applied to stairs and ramps.
This process creates a finished stamped concrete surface with an attractive, three-dimensional, two-toned appearance.
Once stamping is completed, a protective sealant is applied that allows the new concrete to resist oil, water, mildew, and stains. This protective sealant further improves the overall strength of the concrete and gives the surface an attractive “wet-look”. An anti-slip finish can also be applied. For more information, see our Frequently Asked Questions.
If you don’t like the rich look of stamped concrete, you can add charm to your concrete using our colored exposed aggregate or broom finish. We offer many of different colors of aggregate and decorative borders by broom finish.
