What Is Stamped Concrete?
Decorative concrete is an awesome option for both commercial and industrial settings, supplying a customized look that will spruce up your property’s style in a big way.
As a stunningly attractive member of the decorative concrete family, stamped concrete enjoys special appreciation and attention.
So, what exactly is stamped concrete? First we’ll tell you, then we’ll show you.
Similar to the idea of faux painting, stamped concrete is the process of taking one thing and making it look like another. In this case, we can flex our artistic muscles by transforming a concrete surface into what looks like brick, slate, flagstone, stone, tile, wood, and more. We begin with a base color, add an accent color that matches what we’re mimicking, and then stamp the pattern into the surface.
