what's stamped concrete?
What is stamped concrete? Nowadays, many people are aware of stamped concrete.
They know that the stamping process gives the elegant look of hand-laid stone, slate, or brick at a fraction of the cost of these materials. It has been around for decades and has become a mainstream treatment for anyone wanting more than just “plain gray concrete”.
So, what’s all the buzz about? Stamped concrete is awesome; it’s one of those home
remodelling trends that seems to be catching fire lately, and for good reason. The process
of laying stamped concrete is almost an art. A stamped concrete patio gives you the look and texture of stones, that can imitate brick, cobblestones, cracked earth, and weathered wood, for a lot less than the real thing — up to 50% less than the cost of natural slate or limestone.
Best of all, a stamped concrete patio is low maintenance — the “stones” won’t settle over time, creating uneven surfaces, and there are no grout or joints that can open up to let grass and weeds sprout. Stamped concrete is simply a concrete slab with a textured, embossed surface. The contractor will pour and smooth the slab, pressing a pattern into the surface while the concrete is still wet and soft; and to add a special touch, add color to the concrete as it’s mixed, or spray it on after the surface has been stamped.
Et voilà! A new patio to enjoy.
As a precaution against our severe fluctuations in temperature, at Mojak Construction we take extra care in using reinforced steel and finishing techniques that will make our stamped concrete second to none in durability.
Benefits of stamped concrete are:
Pattern and color
Excellent performance and durability
"We recently contracted Jacques Tremblay, owner of Mojak Construction, to complete a stamped concrete pad around our new 40 foot pool. His team, before service and after service, and attention to detail were excellent. The colour was exactly what we asked for. The pattern was elegant and matched our yard perfectly. Jacques takes pride in his work. I would recommend him and his team to others who are interested in excellent workmanship and a friendly relationship. Thanks Jacques for helping our project take flight. Well Done." - Jamie Noel (October 2013)
