How Does it Compare With Stone or Other Materials?

Stamped concrete looks extremely realistic because most stamping mats are cast from materials they're meant to represent. To achieve natural-looking color variations that mimic real stone, team often combine integral or dry-shake color with surface-applied coloring mediums for an authentic finish. Stamped concrete might even look better than its real life equivalent because there won't be weed or moss growth between joints and no rot or splintering from mimicking wood planking!

Stamped concrete can also be combined with other decorative concrete elements, such as exposed aggregate or acid staining, to add even more visual interest and depth.

How To Maintain Stamped Surfaces (FAQs)

Stamped concrete paving materials are some of the most durable and long-lasting paving options available, requiring less maintenance than many of their counterparts. Clean and reseal stamped concrete every two to three years on average; however, this depends on its usage - such as foot or car traffic, chemicals used, weather patterns etc. Basic cleaning with a garden hose or pressure washer, mild detergent and push broom is usually all that's required before resealing stamped concrete surfaces. Color hardeners and sealers make the surface stronger, more resistant to abrasion, and help block penetration of water, stains, dirt and chemicals into the substrate - however oil, grease or other spills must still be cleared away as soon as they occur; for more information on cleaning and resealing stamped concrete please read: How to Protect and Maintain Stamped Concrete Surfaces.

Stamped concrete can be highly resistant to cracking when installed properly, and even if minor cracking does occur it's often difficult to detect due to how well its pattern and joint lines blend in with any cracks that may form. If these become an eyesore there are methods available to you for masking them - please refer to Why Concrete Cracks for some basic steps you can take to minimize cracking and ensure proper performance.

Are Stamped Concrete Surfaces Slippery?

Stamped concrete's textured surface often makes it more slip resistant than regular concrete, though like natural stone it may become slippery when wet or sealed with film-forming sealer. If stamped concrete will be installed in a high traffic area like an entryway or pool deck, there are various strategies you can employ to increase its slip resistance such as adding heavier textures or non-skid additives - speak to your contractor if any concerns arise!

If you are considering adding stamped concrete to a patio, walkway, driveway, or other paved surface, its modern varieties offer nearly perfect replicas of materials they aim to mimic; whilst stamped concrete may mimic these other materials well it still boasts the high durability associated with concrete.
