Sitting along the Potomac River, across from Washington DC, Arlington is a beautiful city deeply rooted in the history of the country. As a city that many commuters call home, decorative concrete is used in a more familiar way. The residents of Arlington view decorative concrete as a way to bring a fresh look to their homes or businesses. Local concrete contractors are able to create gorgeous spaces, like concrete patios and pool decks, that offer a place to make lasting memories with friends and family.
What is stamped concrete?
Stamped concrete is used at either residential or commercial properties. It introduces texture to your surface by replicating stone, tile, brick or even wood. Stamping a concrete patio can add a natural look, while creating a more durable and longer lasting space.

Concrete Pool Decks
When properly sealed, stamped concrete pool decks will resist harsh pool chemicals, constant water exposure and fading. While no more slippery than other materials, you can always improve the traction by having your contractor mix a non-skid grit additive into the sealer.

Achieving the right curb appeal to compliment your home is possible with a stamped driveway. While the same options of patterns and colors are available, the fact that your driveway can be poured or pumped into place, makes it a more cost-effective option than most other materials. This allows you to use the money you save on other landscaping projects.

Stamped concrete maintenance
When properly installed and maintained, stamped concrete surfaces can last for decades. You can use color hardeners during the stamping process to make the concrete stronger and more resistant to water penetration and scuffs. To take care of you surface properly, you will need to sweep and wash the surface by using a push broom, a hose and mild detergent. You will also have to reseal the concrete every 2-3 years, as weather and use can deteriorate the original seal over time.
Other decorative concrete options
Concrete is not just a boring gray slab used outdoors for patios and driveways anymore. In Arlington, concrete can be used in a variety of ways, including inside your home or business as flooring, or even as a countertop in your kitchen or bathroom.
Indoor Floors: Polished, stained and epoxy coating floors can bring color and personality to your home. Your project can take a unique and customized look with the array of colored stains and dyes available. Polished concrete looks great and is a low-maintenance surface that reduces the allergens in your home, and allows for easy cleanup if you have pets.
Custom Countertops: Countertops are custom built to your needs and they bring a finishing touch that is sure to make an impact. Many concrete contractors are using their skills to bring a special touch to your kitchen, bathroom, or outdoor barbeque.
