If you have heard of stamped concrete but are not quite sure what it is, it is a pattern imprinted on concrete that resembles the look of stone and brick at a more affordable price than the actual material. Stamped concrete is also referred to as textured concrete. Our experts can make your concrete look like anything, from slate to tile. We know this might sound unbelievable but it’s true. Not every piece of stone, tile or wood is actually what it looks like. Sometimes other materials are used to fabricate stone-like or slate-like masonry. A cheaper substitute, concrete, is used in place of more expensive material. We often perform this work on driveways, patios, courtyards, pool decks and other outdoor areas. It is sure to enhance the look of the exterior of your home.
