What Are Stamped Concrete Overlays?

Stamping is the process of creating a stone-like appearance on your existing concrete. 

After thoroughly cleaning and preparing the surface, a 1/4" thick overlay is poured on to the floor and the stone appearance created by pressing a patterned rubber matt directly into it while it's still soft. Textures such as granite, sandstone, pavers and slate can be created. Once the material has hardened, the final coloring is done through an acid or water staining.

Trowel Downs - These are freehand random effects toweled (material is pushed around using a flat steel handle) directly into the overlay material while it is still wet. It can be made to imitate stone surfaces while maintaining a relatively flat surface. Because the process is quicker and uses less material than a traditional stamped overlay, it's generally a more economical option for those seeking a stone-like surface.

Skim Coats - If your exterior concrete has an issue, a skim coat is an economical remedy. A skim coat overlay is a thin layer of special cement that is applied to the surface of your existing concrete, opening up new decorative possibilities. A skim coat can fix leveling problems, or if you have extended your patio, blend in new and existing sections of concrete. It tends to have a grainier texture that is more slip resistant than other types of overlays such as a micro finish which we normally do for interior concrete floors.

Polished Concrete Color Chart

Colors shown are approximate representations of laboratory samples. Due to variations of job site conditions, actual colors shown on color charts can and will vary slightly. Conditions that will cause variation are inconsistent slump (water content), finishing and curing methods, weather conditions, and concrete raw materials. A job-site or test slab sample should be made using specified materials, and the finishing and curing techniques to be used. For color consistency, batch to batch uniformity must be maintained. The use of computers or other electronic devises for viewing colors are subject to the influence of differences in screen resolution, color balance, etc. and should not be utilized for determination of actual project color results.

What Is Scoring?

Scoring is the process of cutting a small groove on the surface of the concrete to create a desired pattern such as squares or diamonds. Normally these patterns are no smaller than 24” x 24” and require a minimum of an 8” border around the room to be scored.

Scoring can beautifully accentuate a room by drawing the eye from one pattern to the other and is less expensive than stamped concrete.

How Can Decorative Concrete Be Used In and Around Your Home?

Decorative concrete surfaces are the perfect decorative flooring surface for outdoor patios, pool decks, walkways and entryways. 

This type of outdoor floor offers unlimited design options. When enhanced by resurfacing, stains and integral colors concrete patios, pool decks, and driveways can be resurfaced and color coordinated to match a home’s exterior or landscape. They can also be stamped or engraved in patterns that mimic other popular paving materials, such as brick, flagstone, slate and tile.

As an investment, concrete patios and pool decks typically cost less than patios and pool decks made of brick or natural stone because they are less labor-intensive to install. The lower price tag combined with the wide array of patterns and colors available make concrete an economical choice for most budgets. Plus, concrete is easily formed into any shape to accommodate backyard space restrictions.
