Expert Stamped Concrete Installers in Edmonton
Stamped concrete is an excellent way to create an elegant-looking porch, patio, or walkway at an affordable price. Properly installed and maintained, this decorative surface style can last for decades, giving you all of the toughness of concrete, with the aesthetic value of more expensive brick, limestone, slate, or even wood building materials.
How Does It Work?
Stamped concrete is created by applying specific patterns and colours to a concrete surface before it dries, allowing it to mimic other materials, or take on custom textures. The results are often very realistic, and installation is generally quicker than stone or brick, saving the homeowner time and money while adding significantly to the beauty of the property. Popular uses of stamped concrete include brick-style accents and borders, slate-patterned patios and walkways, and imitation cobblestone driveways, but these are only some of the possibilities. One of stamped concrete’s greatest strengths is how variable it is: if you can imagine it, we can probably do it!
Our team works closely with our clients to create the ideal design for their home and living spaces. Once a pattern is decided upon, we determine the correct concrete mixture for maximum durability and aesthetics, and add any desired colours to the mix. After pouring and preparing the surface, we make use of stamps, hand tools, and additional dies and colouring agents to generate a realistic, durable surface that will serve our clients for years to come.
The process is completed by cutting expansion joints and sealing the pattern against the elements. We have a combined 37 years experience setting concrete to survive Alberta’s harsh seasons, and we stand by the long-lasting results of our work.
Benefits of Stamped Concrete
A wide array of available colours, patterns, and shapes make stamped concrete among the most variable and customizable solutions for your yard. Create curved, cobblestone-inspired walkways, imitation stone terraces, even custom walls, barriers, and interior flooring. Colors can be added at several stages of the process, stamps can be customized, and hand detailing and shading can give you that extra touch of realism. The possibilities are endless!
Less Maintenance and Less Worry
While brick and stone require regular weeding, and often heave and need resetting, stamped concrete gives you a consistent, durable surface with minimal trip hazards. Some stamped patterns may even assist with traction. Care requires only the sweeping and clearing of debris, as you would with any concrete surface, and resealing every few years to protect against the elements.
Although more costly than regular concrete, stamped concrete is often significantly cheaper than other materials, and less labor-intensive to install. The addition of even small stamped decorative accents and borders can add significantly to your home’s curb appeal, creating value while contributing to the beauty of your overall property.
