Stamped Concrete Near Essendon

Do you want an affordable yet elegant and aesthetically pleasing finish? You might want to consider stamped concrete. It is often called patterned concrete. It resembles natural stones such as flagstones, tiles, wood, or bricks. What’s good about stamped concrete is that it’s affordable compared to natural stones. You can choose from a wide variety of colours, sizes, textures, and styles that will easily match and complement the current design of your home or business. 

Concrete stamping seems to be an easy job – but in reality, it’s complicated. You will need to be equipped with the tools needed to finish the job. It’s best to hire a professional who has a deep knowledge of concretes to do it for you. If you’re a fan of DIY, this won’t work for you. A simple mistake can cost you more. Therefore, it’s better to leave it to the concreting experts.

Process of Creating Stamped Concrete

If you’re still confused about how stamped concrete works, or how it is made, we will briefly explain it to you.

To start the process, you will need to choose your preferred design, base and accent colours. Your accent colour will be added to the cement mix. 

After the application of the releasing agents, stamping tools will be pressed on the cement to make the pattern or design you chose. It will take 12-24 hours before it can be washed and cut. Lastly, the application of a sealant will be done. It is recommended to add a non-slip additive since it would be slippery after sealing it.
