How to Stamp Concrete?
The steps of stamping concrete are limited, but require skills, techniques, and special machinery to ensure a high-quality job is done. You must first pour a minimum of 4 inches of cement, then choose a primary color, which should be poured into the mixer before pouring out the cement to make sure the color is evenly spread throughout the entire layout. Next, the color release agent must be applied, this gives the stamped concrete dimension. Then, the laying of the texture mats must be applied to the concrete while it is wet. It has a nonstick effect, so it can easily be removed and repositioned to continue the layout process. Finally, after the cement dries for 24 hours you should pressure wash the release agent, and apply a clear sealing which should be completely dry and good to walk or drive on after a week.
Different Styles Of Stamped Concrete
The stamped concrete styles are created by using a textured mat that imprints the pattern on wet cement. The stamped concrete can resemble styles like brick, slate, wood planks, cobblestone, flagstone, tile, and much more. There are a variety of patterns and colors to choose from, and it is an affordable paving option that requires minimal maintenance. These styles are also slip-resistant and will enhance the appearance outside your home, which will add to the value of your home.
