Stamped concrete, also known as textured or imprinted concrete, can transform the look and feel of plain, ordinary concrete. It can be made to resemble slate, flagstone, limestone, natural stone, as well as other, more expensive materials. Not only does this create a great aesthetic, but it also offers durability, affordability and very low maintenance care.
This material is versatile and can be used in many different ways for a variety of projects. Driveways, patios, walkways, steps, fountains and many other miscellaneous landscaping projects can be completed by implementing this material in the design. This is a great option for construction projects that are meant to beautify the home exterior. The only maintenance required is the application of some new sealer once every three to five years, and companies such as Elite Concrete are willing to make that process as simple and hassle-free as possible by professionally washing and applying the product to the surface. Other more expensive materials require much more frequent care, and can often deteriorate quickly despite that care.
Concrete is a more affordable option than most others. It’s far less expensive than slate, flagstone, and sandstone, which require the labour-intensive handling and positioning of each individual stone. By stamping the concrete, you can achieve the same look and feel at a much lower price. Concrete can stand any type of weather and holds up very well to traffic and wear and tear, which, for the customer, means less repairs. The installation process is quick and safe, and when executed by a stamped concrete expert in Toronto, it comes with a warranty so that you know you’re getting your money’s worth.
One reason this process is increasingly becoming more popular is the wide variety of options that are offered to match the other elements of your home exterior. You can choose from colors, shapes and textures to transform the look of dull, ordinary, simple concrete into something that really catches the eye. Acid staining, decorative overlays and limestone finishes are just a few of the techniques used to create the look of popular choices such as:
3. Worn rock
5. Hexagon shaped tile
6. Running bond brick
By improving the look of your home and upgrading your landscaping, you’ll increase the value of your home enormously. Because it’s so durable, stamped concrete literally increases and maximizes your profit in the case of a resale. Unlike with many other contractors, you can depend on Elite Concrete to do the job well within an appropriate time limit, and do the job with the utmost attention to quality and detail.
You know a company is doing a great job when the work area is kept tidy and clean, even during off-duty hours, the project manager is communicative and honest, and the workmanship is certifiably skilled and talented. Spend the time to get a design consultation to improve the atmosphere of your home exterior as well as the value of your property.
