The Stamped Concrete Process
As you consider stamped concrete for your Cary home or business, here is a little more about the process of installing decorative concrete.
Add Base Color
Stamped concrete begins with the base color. The base color is the color that best represents the building material you want to mimic (slate, wood, stone, etc.). Color hardener, which is a powder pigment used to dye the concrete, produces the base color for the decorative stamped concrete project.
Add Accent Color
The secondary color for stamped concrete is accent color. This is what produces the texture in the concrete, such as grout or seams. Applying a color release produces the secondary color.
Stamping Patterns for Stamped Concrete in Cary, NC
The shape of the surface for the stamped concrete product, whether a concrete driveway or patio, is created by the stamping patterns. Depending on the natural building material that is desired is what the pattern will reflect. Shortly after pouring the concrete, the stamping pattern is imprinted into the concrete with a concrete stamp.
