If you were under the impression that concrete was not customizable, then you’ll be excited to know that it very much is! Concrete can easily come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, all created to fit your unique need for the material itself. Whether you’re looking at building a new patio with concrete pavers that resemble bricks, or you want interior flooring that’s been stained to glisten under the chandelier, we can assist you in finding the right decorative solution to add to your durable concrete.
Concrete staining is achieved by adding a stain color to the top layer of the concrete. The dye is intended to penetrate the concrete on the surface and alter its hue to your desired shade. The process of staining your concrete does not compromise its integrity, nor does it jeopardize the durability of the concrete, either. Instead, it simply alters the standard grey color of the concrete and can turn it into something more desirable, such as shades of reds, neutrals, and even brighter whites. Concrete staining is then completed by adding a sealant to the surface of the concrete to lock it the stain color.
Concrete stamping is completed by using a stencil in the desired shape to carve out the top layer of the concrete while it is still moist. This allows the concrete to dry in the custom shape and mimic other building materials, while also adding texture and dimension to the concrete itself. Many clients opt for concrete stamping when it comes to integrating concrete in their landscapes, their patios, decks, and even in their driveways. Concrete stamping also makes for beautiful walkways, porches, and outdoor stairs.
Concrete pavers are the popular alternative to standard bricks. Concrete pavers resemble clay bricks but are made entirely of concrete and are sealed together to form walls, surfaces, and other structures in the same way. Concrete pavers are built as individual concrete bricks and can then be built to make any structure you like, such as a wall, a retaining wall, or a flattened surface, such as a porch, steps, patio, or deck. Concrete pavers are also quite easy to repair and replace when damaged, mostly because the damaged paver itself can be removed and replaced with a new one, saving you time and money from replacing the entire concrete surface.
As mentioned previously, you’re probably wondering how it’s possible to customize your concrete so much, but we’re here to tell and show you how easy it can be! Customizing concrete has been on the rise for many years as more and more clients come to see the longevity and durability that concrete can offer. Not only that, but concrete is also easy to maintain and can be easier to repair or replace compared to other building materials. Concrete is also UV-ray resistant, making it the perfect outdoor material for any structure that sees direct exposure to sunlight.
