With so many "natural" materials in the world of decorative concrete surfacing,,,,
"Why Pay More!"Stamped concrete has been attracting more homeowners & business who want an outdoor surface that offers the ultimate in design versatility and value to their investment. Stamped concrete also has the edge when it comes to durability and low maintenance. With the 18 stone patterns that we have available, you'll have more design options than ever before.
For new construction, we place the required 4" concrete slab. At the same time you'll get your colors and design. This helps to eliminate the waiting period for the concrete to cur/set-up before any other type of material can be placed over it. It's almost like a one stop shop, concrete 1st, colors 2nd, design 3rd while the concrete is still wet. Once the area is washed to the desired color shading, saw cuts are placed and ALL is sealed for future protection.
Sounds pretty easy, but, we at Impressions Decorative Concrete, today, still install the OLE WORLD/fashioned WAY. Our stamping process is not by roller, nor stencil. Large rubber tools are impressed into the wet surface to create the look of natural materials like Wood Plank, Brick, Slate, Cobble Stone, Random Stone, and so many more….. Visit our "Stamp Patterns" tab for additional stone design ideas.
Who has the time?With a "solid" foundation there's no need to worry over future maintenancing issue such as weeds, ants, shifting of individual stones/bricks, replacement of sand or grout & smells. The sealers used to preserve the color & design, render the surface none pours. Cleaning of your new patio, pool deck, driveway, entryway or other decorative surfaces is by simply using a (weekender) low psi pressure washer &/or broom with a mild detergent & water hose.
