What is Stamped Concrete?
Stamped concrete is often called textured or imprinted concrete. Stamped Concrete is an almost exact replica of a number of different textures. Some of these textures and patterns include stones like slate and flagstone, tile, cobblestone, brick and wood. Textured concrete works beautifully for pool decks, driveways, patios and walkways. It really is the perfect choice for outdoor flooring.
Why choose Stamped Concrete?
Stamped Concrete is a perfect, cost-effective replica of more expensive materials. Customers will see costs up to 50% less than natural stone and limestone. Although a replica, you will still see a natural, authentic looking product. The finished product is low-maintenance, will not create uneven surfaces and does not have grout or joints that would allow weeds and grass to sprout.
