Stamped Concrete Patios in Maryland

April 18th, 2014

Looking for your next home improvement project? A stamped concrete patio for your Maryland home is a great idea. Now that the weather is getting nice (and it’s only going to get better!) it’s time to get outside and start enjoying it. And what better way to do so than with a stamped concrete patio? Here are a few great ideas for how you could use your stamped concrete patio in Maryland this spring and summer, and even fall (but let’s not think about that yet, bring on the warm weather!).

 

A Family Dinner

You grill outside in the summer, so why not eat outside too? Stamped concrete patios are great for enjoying dinner with your family. Bring the gang outside, grill up some burgers and dogs, and make great use of your new patio.

Entertaining Guests

Guests on their way? Bring them to the patio! Whether you’re having a small gathering with friends or a big family event, stamped concrete patios are great outdoor venues for entertaining guests. Set up some tables and put out food and drink, or clear the area, get the music going, and start dancing!

Relaxing

Relaxing outside on the patio is a pastime that people have been enjoying for a long time. Enjoy those long summer evenings outside with your spouse, or bring a book to read by yourself. Or just sit and watch the sunset. Stamped concrete patios are the perfect place to take it nice and easy.

Why Should I Use Stamped Concrete Instead of Stone?

January 30th, 2014

Winter weather is definitely still with us, but would you believe it if we told you that spring is little more than a month and a half away? Now is the time to start planning your outdoor home improvement projects that you’ve had to put off over the winter. Adding a walkway or patio to your home is a great renovation that can really give a new look to the exterior of your home. If you’re looking to put in a patio or walkway, the next question you need to ask yourself is: stamped concrete or stone? We say stamped concrete. Here’s why:

Cost

One of the first things you consider when planning a home improvement project is the cost. Stamped concrete is easily less expensive than stone, especially heavy stone such as slate. In addition to being less expensive to purchase, it’s less expensive to install, as contractors don’t need to return to apply a finish as they would with stone.

Durability

If it’s installed correctly and by a professional, stamped concrete can stand the test of the elements for many years. Concrete can be installed to allow it to move slightly to accommodate the winter freeze and spring thaw. Stone on the other hand is susceptible to ground movement, which can cause the joints to crack, opening up space for weeds to grow.

Customization Options

Concrete is essentially a blank slate, which means it can be customized with tons of great colors and pattern options, in a way that stone just can’t match.

Winter Stamped Concrete Care Tips

January 21st, 2014

In the winter, it’s important to take care of your stamped concrete patio or walkway. While the cold temperatures themselves won’t do anything to your concrete, the combination of cold and moisture from snow and ice will. These tips will help you protect your stamped concrete patio or walkway from the effects of moisture in the winter.

 

Use Sand, Not Salt

If you need traction on your walkway or patio, throw some sand on it, not salt. Salt will reduce the longevity of concrete, while sand is inert and won’t affect the concrete. Salt also lowers the freezing point of water, which causes the moisture on the concrete to freeze and thaw more often. The more often this happens, the more the concrete expands and contracts as a result. This will weaken the concrete.

Avoid Chemical Deicers

Deicing agents may remove snow and ice from the walkway, but this comes at a price. The chemicals found in these products often aren’t good for concrete. Take extra care to avoid ammonium sulphate and ammonium nitrate, which are basically fertilizers repackaged as deicer. If you want to remove snow from the walkway, the best option is a good old fashioned shovel.

Sealer

Though it’s a little too late in the season to apply a sealer, keep in mind for next season that a sealer can help extend the life of your stamped concrete by giving it more protection from the elements. Talk to your stamped concrete contractor about applying a sealer next year.

Curb Appeal and Stamped Concrete

January 15th, 2014

Curb appeal is the concept of how much visual appeal a house has from the curb where it’s seen by passersby. The curb appeal of your home has a huge influence on the first impression people have of it. This is especially important if you’re selling and trying to attract buyers. Homes that stand out and have lots of curb appeal are likely to entice buyers to come inside and see the rest of the home.

There are plenty of ways to increase the curb appeal of your home, but perhaps one of the most dramatic is the installation of a stamped concrete driveway or walkway. Though it’s not uncommon for a walkway to be something other than plain concrete, it will certainly increase the appeal of the home. It is, however, very rare for a driveway to be something other than your basic asphalt or concrete driveway, which means a stamped concrete driveway will really stand out and catch the eye. The addition of either a stamped concrete driveway or walkway will go a long way toward increasing the curb appeal of your home. Talk to Marrocco’s today about how we can help boost your home’s curb appeal.

How Can I Add Color to Concrete?

January 9th, 2014

When you think of concrete, your first thought is probably of a drab, utilitarian surface of a boring tan or gray color. And it’s true that most concrete looks like this. However, concrete doesn’t have to be this way.

Stamped concrete gives you a color palette that will surprise and delight you. The many colors available for stamped concrete open up tons of creative possibilities and give you even more aesthetic control over the project you’re working on. From deep reds to mild pinks, from light blue to green, yellow, and even black, stamped concrete can get colorful in ways regular concrete can’t. Check out this stamped concrete color palette to get a feel for the many colors of stamped concrete.
