What is Concrete Stamping?

I’ve heard of this type of concrete restoration, but what exactly is it and whats the process like?

  1. Stamping is a way to put a pattern on the surface of the concrete. After the pour has been floated, but before it sets up, the stamp is pressed onto the surface. When it is removed, it will leave a pattern that will be permanent when the concrete cures. Hope this helps.

  2. Stamped concrete involves pouring slab concrete for driveways, patios, walkways, etc., and then impressing both patterns and textures onto the concrete before it is fully dried. In the past, a lesser form of stamped concrete was often seen that merely duplicated patterns. Modern types of stamped concrete provide textures that duplicate many different surfaces such as cobblestones, brick, pavers, wood and more. Also, pigment can also be added to stamped concrete to further duplicate the look of such patterns.

  3. The concrete stamping I have seen is where the finisher stamps in the pattern of your choice (cobblestone, flagstone, tile, etc). The design is limited only by your imagination. The concrete can be tinted or stained and finished however you want.
