Is your exterior property long due for a renovation? If the lawn or patio can use a makeover, then a good solution is the installation of stamped concrete for walkways. Learn what makes this such a beneficial flooring style for outdoor areas.
What Is Stamped Concrete?
Stamped concrete is not unlike standard concrete floor. The main difference, though, lies in the aesthetics. Whereas typical concrete floors are flat, stamped concrete contains imprints and various other design patterns. They may take on the appearance of stone, brick, or slate to list a few. Stamped concrete adds enormous curb appeal to patios with existing furnishings and rockeries.
With a plethora of options, find a style that complements your house exterior or gives it some much-needed contrast. If the home has cedar siding, for instance, then a stamped concrete floor with a wood-grain texture design may be a good option. High-in-demand options include slate, fieldstone, and cobblestone. You can also select between joint and no-joint patterns. As for colors, homeowners tend to aim for earthy colors like terra cotta.
Pros and Cons of Stamped Concrete
This concrete type has a cosmetic appeal similar to brick but at a more affordable cost. It’s known for its durability and slip-resistant properties.
Stamped concrete, however, has some disadvantages as well. Some homeowners have reported small cracks developing within a few years. You may also need to seal the surface to prevent water from seeping in. Untreated concrete can be just as porous as wood.
