What is Stamped Concrete ?

By imprinting patterns in freshly placed concrete, you can achieve the high-end look of stone or brick pavement-and often at a lower cost.
Stamped Concrete, often called textured or imprinted concrete, is concrete that replicates stones such as slate and flagstone, tile, brick and even wood. Ideal for beautifying pool decks, driveways, entries, courtyards, and patios, Stamped Concrete is the perfect outdoor paving choice.
Stamped Concrete can also be used in conjunction with other Stamped Concrete elements such as exposed aggregate or acid staining. Popular patterns include running bond brick, hexagonal tile, worn rock or stone.

For Architect and Engineers

Concrete grade

We require at least M25 grade of concrete with site slump of 100-120 mm. However, higher grade concrete may be used because of structural requirement.

Thickness of concrete pour

We require at least 75 mm thick concrete with site slump of 100-120 mm. However, higher grade concrete may be used because of structural requirement.

Site Mix Concrete

We do not recommend site mix concrete because of its inconsistency per batch. The product output differs.

RCC / PCC

Stamp concrete can either be done over RCC or on PCC.

Laser Leveller

We use laser machines for site levelling and concrete pouring

FAQ

What is Stamped Concrete?

It is when you imprint patterns in freshly placed concrete. Stamped Concrete is commonly referred to as stampcrete, patterned or imprinted concrete. It is designed to resemble brick, slate, rock, flagstone, stone, tile and even wood.

How much does Stamped Concrete cost?

Prices vary between contractors. Color, pattern, borders, access to your yard, straight out of the truck or wheel barrow, all these things usually play a role in price. Please call us for a price evaluation.

Why do people choose Stamped Concrete?

Decorative Stamped Concrete is appealing for many reasons. First, it's an economical alternative to pavers and natural stone, especially for applications such as patios, driveways, walkways, and pool decks. It also requires less maintenance than those materials because it has no joints where weed growth can occur. Adding to the value of Stamped Concrete is the material's longevity. When properly installed and maintained, Stamped Concrete will last for decades.From an aesthetic standpoint, Stamped Concrete is hard to beat when it comes to pattern and color options, which are virtually unlimited.

What are the most popular colors and patterns being used for Stamped Concrete today?

Natural stone patterns, such as slate and fieldstone, are the most prevalent, with brick and cobblestone running a close second. Seamless textures that resemble natural stone, but without joint lines, are also growing in popularity. The most popular colors tend to be grays and earth tones. However, brick patterns are often colored in red or russet hues.

Does it look fake?

Stamped Concrete looks very realistic because most stamping mats are molded from the actual materials they are designed to replicate. To achieve natural-looking color variations, such as you would see in real stone, Stamped Concrete contractors often use integral or dry-shake color in conjunction with surface-applied coloring mediumsIf anything, Stamped Concrete looks better than the real thing, because you won't get weed or moss growth in between the joints, and it won't rot or splinter (if you are mimicking wood planking).

Will it crack, and can it be repaired?

Stamped Concrete is one of the most durable and long lasting paving materials available and is highly resistant to cracking when installed correctly. There are some basic steps you can take to minimize cracking and ensure good performance..Even if Stamped Concrete experiences minor cracking, the cracks are often hard to detect because they will often blend in with the pattern and joint lines. If the cracks become an eyesore, there are methods you can use to disguise them.

Can I install Stamped Concrete myself?

We don't recommend installing Stamped Concrete as a DIY project unless you know exactly what you're in for in terms of labor and expense. First, a lot of steps are involved in stamping concrete and you only have a short window of time in which to get them done, so you must be organized, experienced and well prepared. What's more, all the stamping tools and materials you'll need can cost hundreds of dollars and aren't really worth the investment unless you plan to use the tools on multiple projects.

Will the color fade?

Efflorescence, weathering, dirt and traffic can take their toll on the color of Stamped Concrete. You can minimize any color change by periodically cleaning and resealing the concrete. Even if the color has faded due to years of neglect or lack of maintenance, it can often be restored to its original state by cleaning and resealing.

Is it slippery?

Because Stamped Concrete is a textured surface, it is often more slip resistant than conventional concrete. However, just like natural stone, it can become slippery when wet or if a film-forming sealer has been applied. If Stamped Concrete will be installed in a high-traffic area, such as an entryway or pool deck, there are a number of things you can do to increase its slip resistance.

How long will Stamped Concrete last?

Like conventional concrete, Stamped Concrete will last for decades when properly installed and maintained, even when exposed to harsh winter weather conditions. In some cases, Stamped Concrete can be even more durable than standard concrete, especially if a color hardener has been applied to the surface. Most contractors also apply a sealer to Stamped Concrete to protect it from wear and abrasion and make it easier to maintain.

How do I hire the right contractor to install my Stamped Concrete?

As when choosing any contractor to do projects around your home or business, you should get several written estimates and check their references carefully. With Stamped Concrete, it's especially important to find a contractor who can show you a portfolio of their work and provide actual samples of the patterns and colors they offer. Some Stamped Concrete contractors have showrooms with all their samples on display. Another option is to visit the contractor's website, where you'll often find photos of their projects and a description of the types of Stamped Concrete they specialize in.
