Why do people choose stamped concrete?
Decorative stamped concrete is appealing for many reasons. First, it’s an economical alternative to pavers and natural stone, especially for applications such as patios, driveways, walkways, and pool decks. It also requires less maintenance than those materials because it has no joints where weed growth can occur. Adding to the value of stamped concrete is the material’s longevity. When properly installed and maintained, stamped concrete will last for decades.
From an aesthetic standpoint, stamped concrete is hard to beat when it comes to pattern and color options, which are virtually unlimited. See this chart from Concrete Network comparing stamped concrete with other paving materials.

Why Not The Original, Real Surfaces
While cobblers, pavers and bricks may look great, they form surfaces that feature a number of interlocking pieces. This makes them susceptible to elements such as frost heave along with other changes that occur in the actual underlying surface. In some cases this is the ideal choice when you want to cover uneven surfaces then pavers, stone, or bricks are able to conform to these surfaces. But when you have a level and flat under surface, you will want this concrete to be poured and laid in the very same way. The reinforcing rods in stamped concrete assist in tying your pavement together which strengthens it.
In addition, cobble, pavers and bricks have spaces that allow weeds to grow through the cracks. Stamped concrete on the other hand is a continuous and solid surface, which means nothing will be able to grow through. Impressions that are made to look like “cracks” in stamped concrete are merely impressions that only extend partially into these surfaces.
Does It Look As Appealing As Cobbles, Concrete Pavers And Bricks?
Stamped concrete is down to personal preferences and aesthetically it can closely resemble a number of more costly materials. Some of the options are able to duplicate the appearance of outdoor wood-plank floors. The end result is really outstanding, but is rarely mistaken for the actual real thing. For this reason you may want to choose this type of concrete that is not trying to appear as something else. The beauty of stamped concrete is that it comes in an extensive array of colors, textures and patterns.
Why Do Homeowners Choose Stamped Concrete?
Stamped and decorative concrete is really appealing for a number of reasons. To begin with it is cheaper alternative when compared to natural stone and pavers, particularly for applications such as pool decks, walkways, driveways and patios. Stamped concrete also necessitates a lot less maintenance when compared to other materials as there are no joints present.
Another added benefit of stamped concrete is that the material has an extremely long life span. When installed correctly and maintained it can last for a number of decades.
