Wish you could copy the look of cobblestone driveways and brick sidewalks without breaking the bank?
Our concrete company may recommend to improve the curb appeal of your home or commercial building. Like the name suggests, decorative concrete gives you the durability of concrete with the look of natural materials like wood or stone.
Concrete comes in different forms, colors, and textures to fit your design preferences.
What is decorative concrete used for?
Decorative concrete can be used for anything you want—indoor or outdoor. Whether you want sidewalks to look like they’re paved with bricks, or you wish you had the budget for a cobblestone driveway, the solution is decorative concrete. Concrete is durable enough to last for decades, which makes it a smart investment.
Decorative concrete can be used for:
- Parking lots
- Interior floors
- And more!
What is stamped concrete?
Stamped concrete can be made to look like slate, stone, brick, wood, and other textured patterns. To create stamped concrete patterns, concrete experts press a mold into the concrete while it’s still wet. Dye and concrete stain is later used to make the pattern seem realistic. For example, a deep red dye and complementing stain may be used to make stamped concrete look like bricks.
Making decorative concrete requires both technical and artistic skill. Your contractor will know what dye and concrete stain colors will look most natural for what you have in mind. For example, our team is able to apply outdoor concrete stain to help your stamped concrete driveway look like it’s made of cobblestones. When your contractor is finished, you won’t be able to tell the difference between your decorative concrete and the real thing.
What is stained concrete?
Decorative concrete doesn’t always have to be stamped with a pattern. Many of our customers prefer the look of stained concrete. Stained concrete floors are popular for basements, but can also be used for retaining walls, sound walls, and more. Dye and concrete stain colors span the rainbow, which means you can choose any color from brown to teal to golden yellow. The design possibilities are endless when you choose concrete for your home or commercial building.
What are the benefits of decorative concrete?
