Stamped Concrete Value
Stamped concrete is the perfect solution for all types of projects. Home owners choose stamped concrete over other paving options for driveways, pool decks, patios, walkways and more because of its value. In addition to a reduced cost, the end result is an appealing product. Home owners appreciate stamped concrete for its maximum durability along with the decorative appearance. Stamped concrete offers many benefits in terms of cost, savings, and performance. Here are a few of the reasons why it is a valuable investment for your home.
No Long-Term Maintenance and Easy Care
Unfortunately, most pavers shift and loosen over time. They look amazing when first installed, then suffer from movement and sinking as they age. To keep up with traditional paved surfaces, home owners replace and reset stones over the years. Stamped concrete holds the advantage because it’s a one and done deal! Once set, stamped concrete remains in place. Avoid dangerous tripping hazards and the hassle of maintaining your pavement by choosing stamped concrete.
Easier to Install
Home improvement costs are all about the labor. Difficultly level equals price. When you’re looking to save, consider the option that is less labor intensive. It most likely comes with the more affordable price. Individual pavers take more time to set by hand. Also, sometimes installers cut pieces to fit a particular frame shape. Pouring concrete and stamping with a pattern is a more economical production.
Long Term Solution
Another advantage of stamped concrete lies in the material itself. Concrete lasts longer than other paving materials. It’s also very durable, regardless of the environment its set in. Given the constant foot traffic of a patio or walkway, and the constant vehicle traffic on a driveway, you want paved option that will stand the test of time, (and weather).
Increased Resale Value
Installing stamped concrete instantly improves your curb appeal. You benefit from an aesthetically appealing surface, as well as increased value added to your home. Enjoy a better return on investment than with standard concrete when upgrading to stamped concrete for your patio, driveway, walkway or pool deck.
