Stamped Concrete: Think Outside the Box
Stamped concrete is becoming a popular choice in residential and commercial settings as it is inexpensive, durable, weather-resistant and attractive. Our concrete solutions are easy to maintain and available in a huge array of colors and patterns. Concrete is an excellent choice for so many applications. This includes pool decks, walkways, driveways and even as an alternative to other flooring inside your home or business. Along with being more affordable, stamped concrete will not dislodge like brick or stone. It is also far less susceptible to rot, cracks and splinters. It’s naturally slip resistant too! Additionally, concrete stands up better to the hot summers in Virginia and North Carolina.
We offer decorative concrete in many popular designs, including random stone, herringbone flagstone, hardwood plank and cobblestone. We can install stamped custom concrete in many areas, including:
Decorative Concrete Styles
We install architectural concrete by enhancing the standard gray through special techniques. One technique we use is to mix in color prior to pouring the concrete. Concrete can also be acid stained, scored, polished, even chiseled to achieve the desired design, color, & look.
Concrete acid staining is the most commonly used method because it results in very rich colors as the acid reacts with the concrete, producing a unique and attractive marbling. Unlike paint, which merely covers the surface, concrete acid stain actually changes the color of the concrete to accentuate the imperfections for vibrant veining and marbling.
Stamped concrete, meanwhile, involves stamping a pattern or texture into concrete after it is poured. Stamped concrete can help you achieve a very natural-looking tile, stone, or brick pattern. We can combine stamping with scoring and/or coloring to mimic other materials, and polish the concrete if you want a smooth, shiny finish. Polishing is especially popular for interior concrete flooring in residential and commercial settings.
Concrete Overlay: Restoring Your Worn Concrete
Did you know it is possible to refinish worn pool decks, patios, walkways and driveways without tearing up and replacing your concrete? We also offer decorative concrete overlay services that make your concrete look brand-new again. A decorative concrete overlay is a cement-concrete surface that we can install on top of a pre-existing concrete surface. We use special chemicals and polymers to bind the old material with the new, and the overlay is then stamped, molded, and decorated.
There are many reasons to consider concrete overlay services:
Repairs your existing surface, adding new strength and durability.
Makes your concrete more attractive
Adds value to your property
