Thanks to new advances, concrete is quickly redefining its role in the residential and commercial marketplace. Today, concrete can be made more durable and cast into a wide variety of textures and colors, offering the homeowner endless design possibilities. You can now obtain that slate, cobblestone, and brick look for a fraction of the cost and a fraction of the time that it would take to install the real materials. Decorative concrete can be stronger and more chemical resistant than ordinary concrete, due to advanced reinforcement materials, surface hardeners, and protective sealers.
Today, the cutting edge of concrete is a process known as pattern-stamping. This involves impressing three dimensional patterns into colored concrete. The project is then detailed and sealed. The result is a very durable and attractive concrete art project, enhancing the beauty of your home or business. There are literally dozens of colors to choose from. As far as patterns, any material can be duplicated - from slate to stone to brick. The patterns are endless. Although stamped concrete is roughly 3 times the cost of ordinary concrete, it is still cheaper than the real material. The bottom-line is stamped concrete is more durable, affordable, and enhances the beauty of your property.
