Stamped Concrete Patios Leave A Lasting Impression
Design Ideas With Stamped Concrete
When we say that our professionally designed stamped concrete patios can look like anything — we do mean anything! Take a look at this cool project we recently completed for our customers in Laguna Niguel. We achieved this awesome, realistic wood look using a concrete stamp on cement mixed with a sandy buff hardener for the base color, and a darker, walnut release for the relief color, playing up the rich, deeply embossed wood grain.
The end result? A gleaming, naturally textured stamped concrete patio that looks just like the real thing! Unlike real wood, however, this patio will never splinter, rot, warp in the rain, get worn down in the sun, or attract termites. And, while it is possible that the color, or the shine, will fade slightly over time, the hardeners we add during the mixing process do more than add color; they make the final product denser, tougher, and more resistant to wear and tear. These stamped concrete patios are built to last twenty years or more without noticeable fading. If you ever do decide that your designer patio floor needs a facelift, it’s easy to use an overlay or a resurfacer to upgrade your look without redoing all of the work. When you choose decorative concrete, you will love your patio for life.
Choose From Hundreds Of Stamped Concrete Patterns
Are you considering stamped concrete for your patio? Gone are the days of bland, square, grey concrete patios. This product looks as sharp and sophisticated as any patio surface available, but unlike brick pavers or wood decking, it can be poured in a day and can easily be molded into any shape. With hundreds of stamped concrete patterns and color combinations to choose from, you can truly tailor your finished look to match the rest of your landscaping. Decorative concrete also pairs beautifully with our patio covers and looks especially polished with a border made out of patio pavers.
In addition to the wood grain seen on this project, some of the stamped concrete patterns we carry include stamps designed to look like patio pavers, cultured marble, natural slate, flagstone, fishscale, herringbone, and more. Whether you’re looking for an edgy, geometric finish or a more rustic, natural look, we can help you find the perfect concrete stamp for your project.
