If you’re looking for a way to add a “wow” factor to your patio, look no further than stamped concrete. This technique offers you hundreds of variations of pattern, color and style. The look you choose is only limited by your imagination. So, whether you’re looking for a seamless natural look or a specialized custom look, stamped concrete has got you covered.
Patterns and Style Galore
Concrete can be stamped in any pattern you choose and mimic any style you want. A winding garden path can be made to match the antique stone retaining wall surrounding your property. A back patio can be made to resemble long leaf pine to match the flooring inside, making your indoor and outdoor space blend flawlessly. If you like the look of Mexican Saltillo tile in hues of oranges, browns and reds, stamped concrete can match that too.
Stamped concrete is nearly as easy to clean as your garage floor. All you need is a push broom, a hose with a spray nozzle and a little dish soap. Spray loose leaves and dirt off the concrete. Follow up with a little soap water spread by the broom. Rinse. Repeat once or twice a season or after a big storm. Contact your licensed installer every couple of years to complete a quick reseal of the concrete to keep your walkways and patios looking brand-new.
There are many home projects that a licensed contractor can help you design. For example, a stamped concrete driveway can add curb appeal with textured borders, a flagstone-look or even faux cobblestone, whatever matches the esthetic of your house. Stamped concrete pool decks that look like wood can be treated with an anti-skid coating. Custom fire pit or outdoor kitchen areas can all be built with a designer one-of-a-kind look using stamped concrete.
If you like the idea of adding durable, cost-effective outdoor walkways around your home without giving up that custom-made look, consider stamped concrete. It won’t disappoint.
