Another question we are asked is whether or not stamped concrete will crack, and if so, can it be easily repaired. Stamped concrete is one of the most durable and long lasting paving materials available and is highly resistant to cracking when installed correctly. By following basic steps, you can minimize cracking.
Even if stamped concrete experiences minor cracking, the cracks are often hard to detect because they will often blend in with the pattern and joint lines. If the cracks become an eyesore, there are methods you can use to disguise them.

Another option for covering sound, properly prepared concrete floors is an epoxy coating, especially if you want a surface that’s highly resistance to tire marks and chemicals and can be tinted nearly any color-even bright, intense shades. Epoxy coatings can be very durable and require minimal maintenance.

The amount of cleaning you will need to do on your concrete surface will largely depend on the conditions the concrete is exposed to year around. After months of exposure to foot or vehicle traffic and the environment, all concrete surfaces can use a good cleaning.
Although small cracks in concrete may not seem like a big deal, they can become more problematic if water or deicing salts are allowed to enter and freeze-thaw expansion occurs. There are several great products available for fixing minor cracks.
Lastly, a fresh coat of the right sealer will improve concrete’s resistance to water, sun exposure, freezing temperatures and deicing salts. This is especially good because sometimes deicing agents can cause damage to your concrete. It will also make the concrete easier to clean the following year.

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.
