Best Stamped Concrete in Northern/Central California
Stamped concrete is just what its name implies: concrete that is imprinted with a texture or pattern. The concrete is laid in slabs, and the pattern pressed into it before the concrete has completely dried, which leaves a realistic impression behind.
Be careful that you don’t confuse stamped concrete with its counterpart, textured concrete. They’re two very different things and yield very different results from an appearance standpoint. Check out our blog to learn the details. In short: stamped concrete tends to be more regular-looking in appearance, while textured concrete leans toward a more abstract, yet still natural-looking, flair. Neither is better than the other, but each technique is better able to achieve a certain look.
The Cosmetic Benefits of Stamped Concrete
In the past, stamped concrete could appear very stilted and artificial. Nowadays, however, innovations in color and technique mean that stamped concrete has found its niche. It can be made to look like anything from cobblestone to brick to even a seashell inlay. It even comes in countless colors, as we cover in our blog.
Homeowners Are Now Investing In Stamped Concrete Patios, Pool Decks, And Driveways Because:
As stated above, stamped concrete can be made with countless colors and patterns. This means that it can easily mimic more expensive and/or higher-maintenance patios, driveways, or pool deck materials. Get the look you want without the price tag and invest in stamped concrete
It’s Low Maintenance
A good seal and a good scrub will help keep stamped concrete looking its best. It is much less needy than other materials, such as cobblestone, which require regular weed removal.
As alluded to above, the color and pattern options for stamped concrete are virtually endless. Even if you aren’t trying to imitate a more expensive material, a new stamped concrete patio can still be an aesthetically pleasing choice, as it can be custom-made to fit your style— no matter what that may be.

THE PRACTICAL BENEFITS OF STAMPED CONCRETE
Stamped concrete may be decorative concrete, but that doesn’t mean it’s not tough. It behaves nearly identically to your standard gray brushed concrete in a variety of ways— and that sort of concrete is well-loved in the construction industry and beyond for many reasons. Just like with standard concrete techniques, saw-cutting and rebar can be used to lend this already tough-as-nails material extra strength, promoting its longevity and controlling cracking.
