10% OFF* Stamped Concrete
Stamped concrete is concrete that is patterned, textured or embossed to resemble brick, slate, flagstone, stone, tile, wood, or various other patterns and textures. We recommend stamped concrete due to its ability to resemble other building materials while being a less expensive alternative to the authentic materials.
Earth Stick & Stone has years of experience applying stamped patterns where the pattern is the shape of the surface of the stamped concrete. The pattern reflects the shape of the natural building material and is made by imprinting the concrete immediately after it has been poured with a concrete stamp.
PROFESSIONAL TIP: Stamped concrete can be finished to resemble stone, brick and other masonry while providing a functional non-slip surface when sunbathing or barbequing.
Stamped Pattern Concrete
Stamping concrete became very popular in the early 1970s. Since then the industry has grown, with a wide variety of stamping patterns being created, with many different types of stains. Stamped concrete can be applied to many different surfaces and textures, such as driveways, sidewalks, patios, decks, and even floors inside the home.
Earth Stick & Stone Uses Three Main Procedures in Stamped Concrete Application to Separate it from Other Concrete Procedures:
- Stamping pattern into the concrete
- Addition of a base color
- Addition of an accent color
We apply these three procedures to provide stamped concrete services with a color and shape that is like natural building material.
PROFESSIONAL TIP: One important fact to note is that stamped concrete lasts longer than paved stone, yet resembles it.
Concrete stamping is the procedure which uses concrete stamps to make a pattern in concrete. The concrete stamps are pushed into the concrete after a color release has been applied and then removed to leave a pattern on the surface of the fresh concrete. In most cases, concrete stamping is made to look like other building products such as flagstone, brick, and natural stone.
Adding Base Color
The base color is the primary color used in stamped concrete. The base color is chosen to reflect the color of the natural building material.
Adding Accent Color
The accent color is the secondary color used in stamped concrete. The secondary color is used to produce texture and show additional building materials in the stamped concrete.
