Need to update your patio with a custom look? Why not try stamped concrete? It’s an affordable way to get a high-quality design. Stamped concrete is tinted before it’s poured, giving it a uniform color throughout. Then it’s stamped with a design of your choice, which can resemble stones, titles, bricks or anything you’d like. Here are five benefits to choosing stamped concrete for your next project.
Performance & Longevity
Since it’s concrete, it will hold up for years to come. Concrete lasts longer than other materials and it can hold up to heavy traffic, from children, pets or patio furniture. It won’t sink or settle unevenly, like some types of patios. With stamped concrete, you’ll have a great looking surface for many years to come.
Once it’s been installed, who wants to waste time with upkeep? Because concrete is so durable, the only maintenance recommended is an annual resealing, to keep it from becoming chipped or cracked. Other materials can become loose or settle over time and become tripping hazards. But with concrete, other than the yearly resealing, you can spend your time enjoying your new patio, not maintaining it.
Many Pattern & Color Options
Concrete can be colored to match your landscape or the exterior of your home. It can also be stamped into almost any design, giving you limitless options for customization. This is probably the biggest perk with stamped concrete, you get to decide exactly which style is perfect for you.
Concrete is less expensive than other materials. It’s also easier to install and maintain, so you save on labor costs. Because it lasts so long, you won’t have to waste money repairing or replacing concrete. All around, concrete is an affordable alternative to other surface materials.
Stamped concrete is one of the quickest and easiest materials to install. It requires less labor, so your project will be completed and ready to use in no time.
