Stamping concrete is achieved by using rubber mats and imprinting the pattern of the rubber mat in Concrete before final set.

We will sit down and go through the many spectacular decorative concrete combinations to suit your new build or renovation.
Installing Stamped Concrete
Sealing Decorative Concrete
Imprinted Concrete with high gloss sealer can be slippery with steep grades, escpecially when newly sealed. In Vancouver there is a lot of steep grades and sometimes modifying a sealer or changing the typical sealer is needed . There are a few options, normal high gloss acrylic sealer, high gloss sealer but with non-slip additives and a penetrating sealer. Normal high gloss sealer is fine on slabs and stairs with little grade. We add a non-slip additive to Concrete sealers when there is a steep grade or we instead use a penetrating concrete sealer. Penetrating concrete sealers go on like water and leave no sheen. They also don’t bring out the colours in stamped concrete but as a big plus they are non slip and permanent.
Sealer, this minimizes water entering your Slab which in the colder months, sometimes resulting in damage to the surface. Wait 28 days to park on the Slab after the initial pour and never park a heavy truck on your driveway unless it was designed to hold heavy vehicles as it may cause excessive cracks and once cracks start they are there to stay. Never use any ice melt products, they are all harmful. By doing these simple things you will get maximum life out of your stamped concrete job.
Stamped Concrete prices
The price of stamped concrete can really vary, and it is very hard to give pricing with not seeing the job site and going through all the options which make up the cost. Size of the job is a big factor, larger jobs are less per square foot than small jobs. Access can also play a part in pricing, if we can not use a full size machine and you must hand dig much of the job, that can affect price. The color pigment used is a factor, some cost more than others and amount per cubic meter of color you choose. For these reasons and more we provide free onsite estimates.
