Stamped Concrete and Slabs
Stamped concrete and concrete slabs are different ways of pouring and customizing concrete for particular building projects. Stamped concrete uses a stencil that is pressed onto the top layer of the wet concrete to create a pattern or design. Concrete slabs are poured into frames and are later used to build upon each other for larger surfaces, such as sidewalks and patios. If you have particular building projects that would like to customize your concrete, then you may want to consider stamping it or integrating concrete slabs versus an entire frame of concrete to cover the whole surface.
Stamped concrete is a fun way to customize your concrete so that it does not look at all or average. If you have a particular aesthetic that you would like to achieve, stamped concrete is definitely the way to go. You can choose from a variety of designs, shapes, and much more to help you integrate the perfect pattern into your concrete for more texture and appeal. Not only can stamped concrete incredibly beautiful, but it can also add value to your outdoor space and complement your landscape.
Concrete slabs are similar to large concrete bricks that are used to cover entire surface areas. Concrete slabs are poured into frames and later aligned to create patios, driveways, walkways, sidewalks, and even decks. The biggest benefit of a concrete slab is that when the slab itself is damaged, it is much easier to remove the slab alone and replace it with a fresh one versus repairing the entire surface of concrete when there is damage. Concrete slabs can also be used for flooring, both interior, and exterior, and for foundations, retaining wall, and interior walls.
Designs and Patterns
Stamped concrete is a great way to integrate designs and patterns into your standard concrete so that it does not look doll and cannot character or dimension to any concrete project that you have. When it comes to stamped concrete, you need to choose a design or pattern that you would like embossed into the surface of the concrete. Stamping your concrete does not compromise its integrity or its strength, and instead gives it a stunning appearance that mimics natural stone or brick. You can also mix-and-match patterns and designs and have those integrated as a custom product through your concrete stamping project.
Maintenance and Repairs
Maintaining and repairing your concrete slabs and stamped concrete is done in the same manner that you would with traditional concrete. Altering the appearance of the concrete does not change how it is maintained, but rather we can change the process in which we repair it. If you have concrete slabs, we will simply remove the damaged slabs and replace them with new ones. If particular sections of your stamped concrete are also cracked, these can be filled with a crack filling solution or removed and replaced in sections, depending on how big the damage actually is.
