Stamped concrete is an ideal surface for pool decks and patios, simulating the beauty of natural stone while permitting curvilinear borders that gracefully frame pool edges. It is popular in the residential market-with driveways, pool decks, and patios being in the greastest demand. Stamped concrete design options are not limited to stone or brick patterns. With custom stamps, unique graphics, logos, and other distinctive works of art are possible. A stamped concrete pavement can be placed in about half the time as a natural stone pavement of equivalent size. The coarser texture of stamped concrete surfaces provides greater traction and safety.
