This is a process that is capable of creating all sorts of designs on concrete paths, walls and pretty much any type of concrete structure that you can think of. What a lot of people want to know is if they can create their own personal design or will they have to stick with the original molds that are available. We are a company that takes being unique very seriously. So you can rest assured that we will do everything to make sure that we allow our clients to be able to express themselves with the designs of their concrete.
Can You Stamp Previously Placed Concrete?
This is one of the questions that we get quite a bit. We are going to have to give a yes and no answer to this question. Technically it can be done. There are a couple of ways to do it, the sloppiest way would be to just place a new layer of poured concrete over an existing structure and actually stamp on that. As you can imagine the results that you get from that are not all great. The way that we usually stamp concrete structures that are already there is that we remove the concrete structure almost entirely and put down a new layer that we are going to, then stamp over.
We have already spoken about this. We can help you create unique molds to be able to stamp your concrete. Obviously, you can expect the process to be a bit more lengthy. As we are going to have to create or find that perfect design. If you are up for that though, then we can make sure that we find that perfect design that will go on your concrete structure. We are not just about cookie cutter projects!
What Types of Concrete Structures Can You Actually Stamp?
For the most part, we are going to be asked to stamp floors. That does not mean though, that this is going to be the only thing that we are capable of stamping. We have worked in staircases, walls, and even some countertops. Since the process is pretty much done the same way, taking the mold and using it in other areas is not all that difficult. When you know what you are doing, that is one thing that we want to clear up!
Do it Yourself Stamping Yay or Nay?
We are a professional company, and that does not mean that we are fully against people taking on different types of projects on their own. Stamping is one of those things that people tend to think is overly easy. That same thought has lead to some pretty disastrous results. This is not a job that is going to be excessively dangerous so we can’t pull out the don’t try this at home card. What we can say though is that a botched attempt can literally see you flush your investment down the drain. Stamping requires planning, patience, and experience if you want to make sure your investment will render good results we recommend the professionals!
