Should You Install A Stamped Concrete Patio?

There are very few disadvantages to using stamped concrete on your patio. However, you should keep the following points in mind before you choose this solution.

Deep depressions

Don’t go overboard with the deep embossed patterns and textures because your surface will be uneven, which is not good for your patio furniture. Deep depressions in the floor will also reduce the accessibility and ease of use for persons with limited mobility.

Color

There are multiple options and colors for painting the surface once the patterns are added, but for a durable finish your best option is to use concrete dyes while the cement is being mixed.

Cannot Replace The Real Thing

While stamped concrete will look attractive, on close inspection, with the use of concrete floor stain, you can transform your concrete into something beautiful, vibrant and alive. It might be obvious that you’re using an alternative. So stay on the conservative side and use a unique design. Stamped concrete is emerging as an affordable option for patio floors. Whether you do it yourself or hire a professional, it will give you an attractive looking floor on a small budget.
