Stamped Concrete, often referred to as Stampcrete or Hardscape, has a proven record for strength, durability, and cost-effectiveness for a variety of applications including floors, walkways, patios, and driveways.
It is an increasingly popular alternative to covering interior concrete or to costly exterior finishes such as slate, granite, or brick.
Stampcrete utilizes cement to create a surface, which is both decorative and functional.
A combination of colors and special tools are used to permanently imprint newly placed concrete. Detailed brick, slate, flagstone, stone, tile, and even wood patterns can be simulated in a variety of colors and authentic looking textures at a fraction of the cost of comparable natural materials.
It can be applied to almost any newly placed horizontal concrete surface.
Complex designs incorporating steps, courtyards, and fountains can also be achieved.
Stamped concrete can also be blended with other decorative concrete elements such as exposed aggregate finishes and acid-etch staining.
The resulting finishes combine beauty and creativity with the economy, durability, and practicality of concrete.
