Do you want a product for your walkway, deck or patio that is beautiful, requires little maintenance and has an incredible life span? If so, consider colored, pattern-stamped concrete. Concrete is no longer just a gray slab used for a driveways or sidewalks. There are many innovative ways it can be dressed up to fit your needs.
Architects and landscape designers are reveling in the news that the color of concrete driveways, patios, decks, sidewalks and porches, as well as floors and countertops, can match any decor. Decorative concrete provides all of the wonderful assets of concrete, and lets imaginations run wild.
The rise in popularity of decorative concrete may be attributed to three key factors:
1. The continuing evolution of stamping tools
2. The development of a wide variety of colors, and
3. People becoming aware of the possibilities
One small indication of the popularity of colored and stamped concrete in Wisconsin is that the Wisconsin Ready Mixed Concrete Association (WRMCA) Concrete Design Awards has had more entries for its residential decorative category than any other category, and has recently added a commercial decorative category!
