Concrete stamping is the process by which newly poured concrete is stamped with a textured mat that leaves an impression on the concrete resembling stone, brick or tile. The concrete is usually also colored with one or more colors to achieve a more realistic look. Stamped concrete is a great way to make what would normally be a fairly boring gray surface into a beautiful showpiece. Stamped concrete has other advantages including its relative affordability when compared with many kinds of natural stone.

Stamped concrete, commonly referred to as patterned concrete or imprinted concrete, is concrete that is designed to resemble brick, slate, flagstone, stone, tile and even wood. In this section you will see how stamped concrete can be used to beautify pool decks, driveways, entries, courtyards, and patios.


Due to the wide array of options when it comes to concrete pattern, concrete colors, and the cost of stamped, or imprinted concrete in relation to the materials it is a substitute for, the choice of stamped concrete is becoming more popular and frequent.

Colors and patterns for stamped cement are often chosen to blend with other stone, tile or patterned concrete elements at the residence. Complex designs incorporating steps, courtyards, and fountains can be achieved when patterns are pressed into the concrete. Stamped concrete can also be blended with other decorative concrete elements such as exposed aggregate finishes and acid-etch staining, along with a particular pattern, such as running bond brick, hexagonal tile, worn rock or stone. Concrete provides the perfect canvas for creating an economical replica of more expensive materials, and yet still maintaining a very natural, authentic look.


Stamped Concrete Patterns and Designs

Get ideas for patterned concrete from these popular designs. Patterned concrete is designed to resemble brick, slate, flagstone, cobblestone and other patterns. These natural stone looks are costly and require more upkeep than patterned or stamped concrete, therefore making stamped concrete much more economical and still capable of achieving a desired look. Because concrete is the most often installed surface for driveways, courtyards, and patios, stamped concrete is a popular application for creating a feasible and unique design.
