So you’ve decided to use stamped concrete as the flooring material of your outdoor surface. Even though stamped concrete is very durable, there are some things you can do to help prolong the integrity of it.
- On outdoor stamped concrete, avoid using deicing salts, especially during the first winter after the pavement is installed. Sealers for decorative concrete often fail in areas where deicing salts are applied or that receive drip-off from parked cars.
- If the stamped surface begins to dull or lose its sheen after time, recoating with sealer will usually restore the luster. Please give us a call and we can assist you in picking the right sealer.
- On stamped interior floors subject to lots of foot traffic, it’s especially important to maintain the sealed surface to prevent wear patterns. Application of a sacrificial floor wax or polish can provide extra protection by protecting the sealer from wear and serving as a shock absorber to scuffs, scratches and grime.

One of the most prominent features of a home’s exterior is the front porch. Whether it’s a small landing welcoming people to your door, or a wrap-around patio with room for seating so you can watch the world go by, the porch is a highly visible and important design element.
A decorative concrete porch can be part of a stunning entry way to a residence. In some cases the entry or front porch is built larger than normal to create places to sit or gather to talk. Steps can be stamped concrete and raised flowerbeds can be tooled to match the flatwork’s stamped pattern.

One of the biggest trends in outdoor design today is a decorative concrete pool deck, a colored, textured and inviting area surrounding the pool that does more than provide a safe, slip-resistant deck for sunbathing and barbecuing. In ground pool decks are now given nearly as much attention as the interior design of the home.
Decorative concrete has opened the doors to creating pool decks that complement the exterior of the home, meld with the outdoor environment, and replicate exotic and traditionally expensive materials such as slate, stone or even wood.

Stamped concrete is concrete that is patterned and/or textured or embossed to resemble brick, slate, flagstone, stone, tile, wood, and various other patterns and textures. Stamped concrete is commonly used for patios, sidewalks,driveways, pool decks, and interior flooring. The ability of stamped concrete to resemble other building materials makes stamped concrete a less expensive alternative to using those other authentic materials such as stone, slate or brick.
There are three procedures used in stamped concrete which separate it from other concrete procedures; the addition of a base color, the addition of an accent color, and stamping a pattern into the concrete. These three procedures provide stamped concrete with a color and shape similar to the natural building material. It also is longer lasting than paved stone, and still resembles the look.
