Stamped concrete is a decorative concrete technique used to imprint patterns and textures onto freshly poured concrete. Also referred to as imprinted concrete, stamped concrete can be used to create the look of brick, cobblestone, wood, and more.Contact us
Stamped concrete is just as durable as a slab of plain gray concrete, so you can use it basically anywhere—even locations with lots of foot traffic. Here are some of the common locations you might see stamped concrete.
Here are some of the areas of commercial properties that we commonly install stamped concrete.
Since you can get the look of pavers with concrete, clients often ask which is better, stamped concrete or pavers? Here are several reasons we prefer stamped concrete over pavers:
The opportunities with stamped concrete are endless. There are so many unique combinations you can create with the colors, patterns, and textures available. You can get everything from a wood look to an Old World cobblestone look.
In addition to being able to create the look of just about any material you like, you can imprint designs such as leaves, medallions, logos, and more.
When finished properly, a stamped concrete surface will not be slippery. An experienced contractor such as SUNDEK will make the surface non-slip by adding a texture or including a non-slip additive to the sealer.
Clients are often pleased to learn that stamped concrete is more affordable than the material it mimics. For example, creating a cobblestone driveway with real cobblestones is more expensive than creating the look of cobblestones with concrete.
