What is concrete stamping and what are its applications? In simple terms, this is a method that allows us to imitate the appearance of certain surfaces like wood and/or natural stone. Concrete is considered to be very versatile, which can also be an alternate and cheaper solution to other materials. We can add colors to the mix to make it even look like an exact replica of the surface. Concrete stamping has been considered to be a top choice for projects like driveways, pool decks, and sidewalks because of its cost-effectiveness and aesthetics.
Concrete stamping is cheap, requires little effort to maintain and gives you the freedom to design the surfaces based on your needs and personality.
Sidewalks for Your Gresham Home
First and foremost concrete is a highly affordable material. So, when it comes to large areas like sidewalks, it makes the most economic sense to use a material that is reasonably priced.
It is easy to cover a large surface area with concrete in any shape or design. The method of pouring allows you the flexibility to choose a straight, curved, or any other shape for your sidewalk.
Concrete is durable and delivers optimal performance and longevity as it is strong enough to handle daily wear and tear for a long period of time. Maintenance requirements are minimal. Regular cleaning and occasional repairs for minor cracks are all you will need to do to keep your sidewalk looking good for many years to come.
Modern innovations in concrete applications allow you to completely change the visual aesthetics of your outdoor space. With stamped and colored concrete you have the option of choosing the color and design of the surface of your driveway.
Common Causes of Concrete Cracking
There are a multitude of potential causes for cracks in concrete walkways, including:
Control joints won’t necessarily prevent cracking, however, these lines are cut and tooled into the slab at the time the concrete is placed to help plan where the concrete will crack.
Concrete joints are needed when two separate slabs need to be connected. Without these joints, the slabs often slip and push up against each other, causing cracking.
When it comes to mixing concrete, everything from temperature, water content, and air has to be just right to achieve a successful result. Fortunately, by using modern concrete mixes designed by knowledgeable companies, you can avoid cracking.
