When it comes to creating an artistic, eye-catching design for your patio, driveway, garage, or pool deck, you may not think that concrete would be the material of choice. Perhaps when you think of concrete, you picture a plain, boring, concrete slab, and that isn’t the look you’re hoping to create. However, you are hoping to create a patio, driveway, garage, or pool deck that will be durable and last for years to come. If that’s the case, stamped concrete is just the thing you need!
Stamped Concrete is Durable
Stamped concrete combines the look and texture of your desired material, along with the sturdiness and strength of concrete. Why would you not want to use wood, pavers, stone, slate, tile, brick, cobblestone or more for your project? All of these materials are prone to issues that most homeowners and business owners don’t want to have to deal with, such as the expense of the materials, short life spans of the materials, annoyance of foliage growing in between the sections of the materials, as well as the trip hazards as the other materials move, shift, and settle over time.
Stamped Concrete is Versatile
After the concrete is poured, our concrete professional imprints a pattern or texture before the concrete is dry. This decorative concrete differs from pavers due to the fact that the concrete is a single slab versus multiple pavers. If you use pavers to create your masterpiece, the pattern is made up of sectioned pieces of concrete. This is why grass or weeds aren’t able to grow in the stamped concrete, whereas pavers or other sectioned materials have cracks where weeds and grass can grow between the pieces.
With minimal maintenance, stamped concrete can last 40-50+ years. It is durable and withstands mother nature’s elements, and can handle the weight of heavy machinery if needed. What that means for you is that stamped concrete is affordable when you consider the longevity of the material.
