Stamped Concrete Options

Many times consumers don't realize all the different options you get with stamped concrete. For instance our parking lot displays exactly 78 different options. In fact we have about 40 different stamps alone not to mention the endless combinations of stamps, stains, integral colors, and textures that can enhance the look and feel of a decorative concrete piece.

Decorative concrete or stamped concrete really is far superior when it comes to options and choices when compared to pavers and other competing options. Shown below are just a few designs of the many options of decorative concrete.

Stamped Concrete - Pool Decks

It has been a while since I've last posted. We've had a busy last couple weeks. The Spring finally arrived and we've had a major makeover in our showroom. We've added another service to the company, thus needing to display all the treatments in our showroom/office. I can't wait to post the final product. I've added a few pictures to get you a sneak peek.

I also promised a few more stamped concrete photos of different patios and driveways. And since today is beautiful outside I was thinking pool decks would be a great option to show. The pictures below show three different styles of the many options that you can design for your stamped concrete pool deck.

The far left shows the options of the different types of stains you can add to your stamped concrete. The middle pictures shows the very popular star design stamp and stain option. Lastly, the far right shows an ashler slate pattern. These three options are just a glimpse into the endless possiblities when it comes to designing a pool deck or any stamped concrete surface for that matter.

Stamped Concrete

Decorative Concrete - Stampable Overlays
Someday soon Spring will come... I promise! However; it does seem bleak when you think about how we got snow on the first of April. Maybe Mother Nature is playing an April fools joke on us. Or maybe we are just lucky to live in the Midwest!

I decided I needed to lift up my gloomy spirits and stamped concrete would be a great post to do just that. The pictures exuberate warm weather and green grass that surround the many different textures and colors stamped concrete gives your home.

There are many different options you can do with stamped concrete. You can choose just one texture, no color. Otherwise you can spice it up with as many colors and stains and as many textures as you'd like.

Today I am posting one of my favorite pieces of stamped concrete. It's a Deep Limestone Texture. This particular stamped concrete project Concrete Arts did was for a pathway that went around a home.

For the next few posts, I'll give you other options that I really enjoy. Stay warm!
