Stamped Concrete and Your Pool: A Great Pair

July 31st, 2014

 

A concrete walkway surrounding your pool is a necessity, so why not make it fun too? Regular gray concrete will do the job, but stamped concrete does the job with style and makes your pool that much more aesthetically pleasing. Cool off in your pool and make it even cooler with stamped concrete!

Stamped Concrete for Your Pool

Stamped concrete walkways and patios surrounding your pool are a great addition to your backyard. How can you use stamped concrete to accentuate your pool?

Color

Using Increte’s color system you can choose from a variety of different colors that complement your pool and backyard setup. Choose a water theme such as coral, teal, or seafoam green, or go with something more traditional such as desert tan or terra cotta. The choice is yours!

Design

While regular concrete has no design features, stamped concrete can be designed in any pattern or shape to give your pool walkways and patios a customized touch. Imitate your favorite stone or find a pattern you like and turn your idea into reality with our customized stamped concrete designs.

Aesthetic

You can use stamped concrete’s color and design options to complement the aesthetic of your pool. If you’re going for a colorful beach vibe, go with harvest sand color and a bright blue liner. To make the pool look more like a natural body of water, choose a dark liner paired with a darker concrete walkway. The dark liner will reflect light and give the water a darker, more natural look.

Why Should You Choose Stamped Concrete?

July 25th, 2014

 

If you’re considering a new hardscaped feature for your yard such as a patio, walkway or driveway, you’re probably wondering what the best building material is for your project. Stamped concrete is an affordable and durable building material that is perfect for many outdoor hardscaping projects. Here’s what you get when you choose stamped concrete.

The Benefits of Stamped Concrete

Affordability

Its affordability is one of the many factors that make stamped concrete so attractive to homeowners. While stone and pavers can run up a big bill, especially over large areas, stamped concrete is affordable and won’t break the bank or your budget, so your project can have the scope it needs at the price you want.

Customizable

Stamped concrete can imitate practically any stone or design with its unique, customizable options. In addition to stone, stamped concrete can even imitate other building materials such as wood! The ability to customize stamped concrete with any style, shape, pattern, or color you want makes it one of the most versatile hardscaping materials on the market. Whatever project you have in mind, there’s a good chance that stamped concrete fits the bill.

Durability

Concrete’s durability means that your new patio, walkway, or driveway will last for many years to come. The sealer used to protect concrete makes it even stronger and fights damage from salt and freeze thaw cycles.

 

Don’t spend too much on stone when you could get the same look at a better price with stamped concrete. Contact Marroccos Stamped Concrete today to get started with your project!

Can You Replace Existing Concrete with Stamped Concrete?

July 17th, 2014

Let’s say you have an old concrete patio. It’s in fine condition, but you’re ready to spice things up a bit. However, you also realize that the prospect of tearing out an old concrete patio to install a new one means a lot of time and money spent. Fortunately, with stamped concrete, you can eliminate both of these problems. Here’s how.

Give Your Concrete Patio a New Face

As long as your old concrete patio is on a level surface and structurally sound, you can give it a new face with stamped concrete. Instead of ripping out the old patio and laying a new one, stamped concrete can simply be installed on top of your existing concrete patio. The surface is cleaned and covered with a bonding agent that binds the two layers together, and the new concrete is poured on top and stamped into whatever style, shape and color you desire.

There are a few things to remember about this process. Your new patio will be slightly higher than your old one, so go over the patio beforehand to make sure that an increase in height wouldn’t interfere with steps, vents, windows, siding, or other parts of your foundation. Again, the old surface must be structurally sound and on a flat surface.

If your interested in putting a new face on your boring old concrete patio, it can be done with a minimum of hassle and maximum results. Contact Marroccos Stamped Concrete for more information today!

Maintaining Stamped Concrete with a Sealer

July 10th, 2014

Sealing your stamped concrete has many benefits that can improve its looks and extend its lifetime. With proper maintenance, your stamped concrete patio, walkway, or driveway can last for decades. A sealer will be applied when your stamped concrete patio is initially installed, but over time it will need to be reapplied for the best performance. Your Maryland stamped concrete contractor can perform a regular sealing of your concrete to keep it strong and beautiful well into its lifespan. So what does sealing do for your stamped concrete?

Sealing the Deal

Most stamped concrete sealers are made from a solvent- or water-based acrylic. Sealing does a lot of great things for your concrete that will keep it looking as good as it did the day it was installed.

Stain Protection

First, it protects the concrete from stains. Driveways in particular are subject to stains from leaking vehicle fluids, which is why its important to protect them with a sealer.

Color Booster with UV Ray Protection

Sealers make the colors of your concrete more intense and add a sheen to the surface that makes the colors even more distinguished. In addition, sealers reflect UV rays from the sun to prevent fading of the colors over time.

Breathable

While sealers prevent contaminants from penetrating the concrete, they’re also breathable. This means moisture can escape the concrete, preventing moisture damage from expansion and contraction.

Protection from Abrasion

Stamped concrete can see a lot of action from foot-traffic and the elements, but sealers help protect the concrete from wear and tear, making them last longer. Sealing your stamped concrete also makes it easier to clean.

Learn more about sealing your stamped concrete by contacting us today!

Outdoor Patio Design Ideas

July 2nd, 2014

Looking to design the perfect outdoor patio for your backyard? Summer is the ideal time for patio design and building, with the warm weather offering the perfect environment for construction and enjoyment of your new outdoor patio. We’d like to share a few ideas you can use when designing your new patio to make it your new favorite outdoor space for entertaining and relaxing.

Outdoor Patio Design Ideas

Light and Shade

We all want to take advantage of the nice weather in the summer, but sometimes the sun can be too much. But this doesn’t mean you have to retreat indoors. Shade your patio so you can enjoy the great outdoors and get out of the sun at the same time. You can do so by placing your patio near natural sources of shade such as trees with large canopies, or make your own shade by constructing a pagoda above the patio. In addition, use lighting to accent your patio at night and give it a nice ambiance.

Frame it Naturally

Creating a natural looking frame for your patio incorporates it into the environment and makes it a more unified whole with the backyard. You can do so by using natural elements in your yard such as hills to form boundaries, and use plants and landscaping to create additional boundaries that serve a functional purpose and are visually appealing.

Create an Entrance

Add an entrance to your patio with a walkway that funnels into the space from a natural starting point. Stamped concrete provides the ideal material for both your walkway and patio, with its ability to imitate practically any stone or paver. Stamped concrete comes in a large number of colors and patterns that are sure to suit your needs.
