Stamped Concrete Techniques

Accumulation of Base Colour
This is the use of primary colour that is added to the stamped concrete. It brings out the natural colour of the building materials. 

Accumulation of Accent Colour
This is the use of secondary colours. It brings out the texture in the building materials. Aside from providing colour to the concrete, colour release also prevents the stamp from sticking to the concrete.

Stamping of Pattern
The stamp is designed by using metal and concrete. After applying the colour, the stamps are pushed into the coloured concrete.

How Is Stamped Concrete Installed?

Installing stamped concrete must be carefully done. If you’re a fan of DIY projects, stamped concrete might now be the one for you. Special tools and materials are required to finish installing stamped concrete. Our concrete experts are fully equipped with the knowledge and proper training to be able to deliver high-quality work on time. 

Before starting your project, our team will help you in choosing the pattern that will best match your current landscape design and style. You will also need to choose two colours – the accent and base colours. The accent colour is added to the cement prior to mixing. 

As the concrete sets after being poured into the surface, the colour will then harden. Releasing agent is also applied to prevent the stamp from sticking to the concrete during the whole stamping process. 

The stamp will be pushed into the concrete to create the pattern. It will take 12-24 hours before it dries out. Sealing of the stamped concrete is applied. Sealants cause the stamped concrete to be slippery, we recommend adding a non-slip additive if it would be an issue.
