BENEFITS OF STAMPED CONCRETE SERVICES IN SAN ANTONIO

Aside from the unique design that stands out among other homes on your block, stamped concrete offers other benefits.

Increases the Value of Your Property
Having a well-constructed driveway or patio increases your property’s value, plus when the concrete surface is stamped, you are looking at noticeable boost in the area’s aesthetic appeal. This quality then adds to the curb appeal and the visual charm of a backyard.
Affordable
Although you are gaining a high degree of beautification with stamped concrete, you are still getting a bargain that won’t break the bank. Concrete construction and paving proves to be one of the most affordable options. When you compare the cost to brick or stone, concrete comes out on top in relation to affordability.
Pattern and Color Options
To further customize your stamped concrete design, we also offer integral and broadcast coloring which are two distinct methods of adding color to the concrete either before or after the material is poured. Plus, we offer various patterns and textures for the stamping itself.
Low Maintenance
Minimal upkeep gives another advantage to the stamped concrete surface. With high durability, you are looking at a surface that lasts for decades. However, you will need to seal a stamped concrete surface once every two to five years to prevent water accumulation.

THE STAMPED CONSTRUCTION PROCESS

To gain the full benefits of stamped concrete, we apply our experience and skills to the following installation process.

Griding and Excavation
Just like any other concrete construction project, we start griding and excavating to prepare the area where the concrete will go. This major step sets the foundation for the concrete slab.
Placing the Forms
We measure and accurately mark the area with wooden boards to ensure that the exact shape and size of the paving will be achieved.
Installing Reinforcement
Next, we lay down metal bars which will reinforce the concrete. This step is critical to the stability of the concrete and the prevention of cracks. It also ensures that the surface can withstand heavy loads.
Placing the Concrete
Once we get the concrete mixed, we place the chute from the truck as close to the proper location as possible since moving the concrete too much can result in separation.
Screeding and Finishing the Concrete
After pouring the concrete, this next step is critical to having a level surface. Our team carefully screeds the concrete to make sure the surface is flat enough to stamp.
Applying Color
Using any of the methods, we then apply the color of your choice to the concrete. We employ the integral or broadcast methods, or we can stain the concrete.
Stamping Process
Next comes the fast yet most meticulous step which is the stamping. We diagram the layout ahead of time and later, check the results often to make sure the pattern is uniform.
Curing Stamped Concrete
The curing part of the process is mostly a waiting game where ideally, no one is walking on the surface until the concrete is completely dry. Proper curing facilitates more strength and durability to the overall construction.
Installing Joints
This next step also adds to the integrity of the concrete surface. This installation of joints multiple areas of the surface prevents worse crack from occurring later.
Sealing Stamped Concrete
This final step also adds a protective layer your new concrete surface. The sealant also provides a shine to the surface and enriches the color.
