Stamped Concrete Mimics Real Stone and Pavers
The look of a natural stone patio can be created using stamped concrete. Many manufacturers have made stamps that perfectly imitate slate, flagstone, brick, cobblestone, and more. Also, there is a wide variety of options when it comes to coloring concrete, making it easy to match the color of just about any type of stone. Because of its versatility, nearly all stone patios can be recreated using concrete. A slate patio is one of the more popular patterns, along with recreating the look of flagstone patios.
Building your own natural stone patio can be a difficult and costly task, but with concrete the job is easy and affordable. Laying a stone patio involves laying each individual piece, but with concrete, it is simply poured and then stamped in sections. Not only is installation simpler and more affordable, but stamped concrete patios and walkways are more durable than actual stone, there is no need to worry about loose or cracked pieces.
Concrete is a great replacement for traditional stone patios. Concrete patios that mimic stone, brick or slate can be poured new or old concrete slabs can be resurfaced with a stampable overlay.
