1. Stamped concrete is an all-time favorite.
We’ve find out along the years that stamped concrete has become an all-time favorite for many reasons. The first of them is that it’s very low maintenance, stamped concrete has no joints in where weed can grow so it is really easy to maintain. The second one is that concrete is a very long lasting construction material. The third one is that it gives a more organic look that blends well with nature. And last, but not least, it’s an economical alternative to pavers and natural stone.
2. It looks very natural
Stamped concrete is great and people love it because it can resemble many shapes, and look as realistic as the original shape. That’s because all stamping mats are usually molded from the original materials they replicate. For example, you can achieve a natural stone look in your new patio by combining stamped concrete and colored concrete techniques!
3. The color you choose won’t fade with proper maintenance
There are some factors that can wear down the color of your stamped concrete like extreme weather, dirt and foot traffic, but you can always minimize that color change by cleaning it from time to time and resealing the concrete. The color will only fade if its maintenance is neglected by many many years, and even then, there are options to restore it to its original stage!
4. It’s a great option for pool decks
Stamped concrete is an excellent choice for pool decks, the main reason for this is that stamped concrete is a textured surface, which makes it slip resistant, but if you’re still worried about becoming slippery whenever it gets wet, there are many options you can do to increase its slip resistance, just call Agundez Concrete and we’ll provide you with all the options available for your concrete project!
