Stamped Concrete is the process of adding texture and color to concrete to make it resemble natural stone, brick , slate, and other natural products found in nature including wood, fossils, shells and many more. This limitless array of possibilities combined with great durability and lower cost than natural products makes Stamped Concrete an easy choice for new construction and renovation projects.
The installation consists of pressing rubber molds into the concrete while the concrete is still in it's plastic state. Color is achieved by using Dry Shakes or Color Hardeners, Release Powders, Integral Colors and Acid Stain. All these products may be combined to create even more intricate designs.
