The Benefits of Stamped Concrete

Available in an array of patterns and colors

With countless color combinations and hundreds of patterns available, stamped concrete offers unlimited design possibilities.

Longevity and performance

Like conventional concrete, stamped concrete will provide decades of service when properly installed and maintained, even when exposed to harsh winter weather.

Speed of installation

Unlike stone or precast pavers, stamped concrete can be poured or pumped into place without the need to lift and place individual units. It takes about five days to install a 2,000 square foot stamped concrete driveway vs. 10 to 12 days to install natural stone or pavers.*

Ability to customize

Some manufacturers produce custom stamps that allow you to imprint logos or other one-of-a-kind designs.

Special maintenance requirements

All of these paving materials, including concrete, will require removal of dirt or stains when necessary by scrubbing or pressure washing.

Average cost per square foot installed

Depends on the complexity of the job. More elaborate stamped concrete installations will cost more.
