What is stamped concrete?
Stamped concrete, often called textured, imprinted or decorative concrete is concrete which reproduces patters like stone, slate, flagstone, tile, brick and even wood.
Recently, stamped concrete has become a favorite choice for many homeowners because it offers a large variety of choices in regards to concrete pattern and concrete colours. Another factor contributing to its popularity is its pricing. The expense a quality decorative or imprinted concrete project can be substantially lower than the materials it is a substitute for.
Concrete is the perfect canvas for making a cost-effective replica of expensive materials, without giving up the natural, holistic appearance. When choosing colors and patterns for your decorative concrete, be sure that they blend with other stone, tile or textured cement elements on your home. Complicated designs with steps, patio and fountains, overlays can be still be stamped into the concrete. Concrete overlays are also utilized in conjunction with other existing decorative concrete elements in an area such as exposed aggregate or acid staining. Popular patterns include running bond brick, hexagonal tile, worn stone or wood.
The nearly limitless design choices are a perfect fit for patios, a driveway, or nearly any other concrete flat work.

Concrete overlays are implemented over existing concrete pads or patios as thin as 1/4″ or up to several inches thick.
Overlays are great for adding a stamp to a surface such as a concrete driveway or patio without having to proceed with total removal and replacement. Overlays may also be used to cover cracks on your project or to just level out or incline a concrete driveway.
You can also add color to overlays to decorate up or create a painted pattern. We recommend a 2″ overlay to ensure no potential cracking especially if you’re adding a stamp on your concrete work.
