Cedar Rapids Stamped Concrete
Stamped concrete is often called textured or imprinted concrete. It is a type of concrete that can replicate stones such as slate, and even wood! The variety of patterns and choices mean it is a popular option for many homeowners and property developers. The style can be the extra sparkle you add to your pool or patio. What’s more, it's an affordable option that requires significantly less maintenance than other materials. Are you considering stamped concrete? If you are looking for something that is durable and long lasting, easy to maintain, more affordable than natural stone, then stamped concrete is for you!
One major advantage to stamped concrete is the range of styles that Cedar Rapids Concrete can offer our customers. Many people take inspiration from the natural beauty of the landscape around them or the architectural style of their property. Whatever the inspiration, our range of designs and textures means that we will have the option for you. If your house has a brick exterior, for example, we could match that with a brick patterned border colour or red-brick scheme which will compliment the rest of your home. Trust us to have the look of your dreams!
Natural stone patterns such as slate are a popular choice when we offer customers the option to press a style into their new concrete patio driveway or pool deck. Whilst the most popular colours tend to be grey, or earthy tones, at Cedar Rapids Concrete we are able to mix and layer stamped concrete. This means multiple colours can be used on the same project giving a more realistic coloration, or adding a stylish decorative border to your new patio. What’s more, because the stamped concrete is textured, it provides a safer and more slip-resistant surface than normal concrete.
Much like conventional concrete, stamped concrete installations will last for decades when installed by our company. This is because concrete is such a durable material. Even when it is exposed to harsh weather conditions, over a period of many years, the material retains its strength and substance. We will often apply a sealer to stamped concrete; this protects it from wear and tear and makes it easier for you, the customer, to maintain. Stamped concrete overlays are just one of the many techniques we use to ensure that your concrete installation is durable.
As with all our services, stamped concrete installations at your residential or commercial property come with a lengthy guarantee. Stamped concrete is one of the most durable and long-lasting materials, particularly when you carry out regular maintenance. Cleaning of stamped concrete should take place every few years on average but this will always depend on the usage of the concrete area. Basic cleaning will often be sufficient. If you require any information about the maintenance of your concrete at home, then just get in contact with someone at the customer services department. They can help you with any questions you might have - and if your concrete might need refurbishing or replacing we’ll be there to do that to!
