Seamless Slate Stamped and Integrally Colored Pool Deck Blends with Rhode Island Home
This 1,400 square foot colored pool deck project was submitted by Nathan Gregory of Artistic Concrete, a decorative concrete company that services Rhode Island and nearby Massachusetts. At a private residence in Bristol, RI, Artistic Concrete was hired to install a decorative stamped pool deck. "The pool was there with the coping," says Nathan. "We poured the deck with Scofield's integral Terra Cotta color. Then we used Brickform's darker Terra Cotta color hardener, and a charcoal release."
Artistic Concrete was given free reign on the design of the pool. "The retaining wall was already there," recalls Nathan. "We made sure the pitches were right. Then we colored it and chose a seamless slate stamp pattern from Brickform. We also stamped a section with a random leaf pattern provided by the customer."
Artistic Concrete specializes in stamped concrete and staining applications for both residential and commercial projects. Nathan is a second generation contractor, following in the footsteps of his father, Scott, who started a foundation company, known as Warrior Concrete, in the late 80's. "My dad bought his first set of stamps, stamped a patio, then fell in love with decorative concrete," says Nathan.
As time progressed, the company eventually made the switch to strictly decorative concrete. "We strive to be up-to-date with the newest products and stamps," says Nathan. "Training is a critical part of our company. We look forward to new products in our growing industry and will always stay up to date with the newest trends in our industry."
