Concrete, back when our Company started, in 1946, was dull, grey and drab. However, the walls, walks, driveways, porches and patios were very functional. Times have changed. Concrete is still the most durable component of residential construction, but it has taken on many different shapes, surfaces, textures, and colors. Concrete has come a long way and today, it is anything but dull and drab.
Concrete can take on any color by ordering a colored concrete sent from the plant and the color will be throughout the thickness of the concrete wall or slab. This will ensure the color for the life of the concrete as opposed to a dry shake of colored powder added to the top of regular concrete.
Stained concrete with a penetrating color is another method of improving the appearance of the concrete. The stain can be added to a standard finished concrete or the concrete can be polished to many different levels of polish. The concrete can be highly polished to give a mirror like appearance of the surface. Any pattern can be cut in the concrete and then each cut section can be stained with different colors.
We have been adding color and using different stamps to give the colored stamped concrete an appearance of brick, stone, wood or almost any image you can think of. We have been stamping concrete for over 20 years.
