Atlanta Stamped Concrete Contractor
Stamped concrete is a cost-effective alternative to using materials like bricks, slate or stone. Stamped concrete is often used outside for patios, walkways, pool decks or other hard surfaces because it is easy to take care of, looks great and will stand up to the elements. Using stamped concrete as opposed to the other paving materials saves a lot of time and is must less expensive. It can also be longer lasting because there are no cracks that run through it to provide places for weeds to sprout or erosion during rain. The team at Atlanta Concrete Artist has years of experience helping customers design and install wonderfully appealing stamped concrete that is more durable than the expensive material it imitates.
We are dedicated to changing the way the world looks at concrete. No more does it have to be the boring, solid gray slabs that we are so used to for drives and walkways. In fact, you may have seen stamped concrete and not even known it. We can add colored pigments to the concrete we stamp to provide a close match to the material imitated in the stamp. We can add accent colors for depth and variety. Accent colors are used to show depth in the stamped area like grout.
The stamp itself is made of polyurethane or, in older forms, various types of metal so it resembles a cookie cutter. Shortly after the concrete is poured and has had time enough to hold a shape, the stamp is applied with pressure. The cookie cutter analogy is very apt in this process except that it is only on the surface, not pushed all the way through. Stamps come in many shapes and sizes and, for an added artistic touch, can even be combined. Although the primary purpose of concrete stamps are to mimic other materials, newer modern stamps are used simply to apply different designs.
