Stamped concrete continues to grow in popularity and for good reason. It offers near limitless possibilities. It can mimic other materials like stone, tile, and even wood, often for a much lower cost. Alternatively, it can create something much more unique in appearance than traditional flooring materials.
Either way, stamped concrete works great for both indoor and outdoor settings. However, if you’re going to have your concrete stamped and stylized, you need to make sure you have it done correctly. In other words, you should contact a professional.
Even if you feel comfortable pouring your own concrete, stamping the concrete requires precision, patience, and specialized tools. Yes, you can buy the tools and materials online, but that’s only part of the process. Stamping the concrete evenly takes an expert touch. The more complex of a pattern you’re trying to attain, the more difficult the job will be.
And once the concrete has been stamped, it needs to be properly sealed (and possibly stained, depending on the appearance you’re going for). This too requires precision if you want to achieve your desired appearance. A bad sealing job looks unattractive and leaves your concrete exposed.
In other words, there’s a lot that can go wrong.
With stamped concrete, you only get one chance to get it right. Messing up either the texture or the finish can result in having to sand down or tear up the entire floor. Save yourself the time, effort, and money. Contact a professional right away.
