Debunking 3 Common Myths About Stamped Concrete, Windham, Connecticut

From how long it will last to how much it costs to install, there are several misconceptions about stamped concrete. Believing the myths leads some homeowners to bypass the material in favor of other products. In all actuality, stamped concrete is engineered for durability and will boost the value, appeal, and functionality of residential spaces.

3 Stamped Concrete Misconceptions to Set Aside  

1. Most Expensive Choice 

The addition of different dyes and designs leave some believing stamped concrete must be more expensive than natural stone, basic blocks, and other similar products. On the contrary, most of the materials are comparable in price—since it doesn’t need to be poured onsite, you can also cut back on installation costs.   

2. Color Fades Quickly

Walking on or driving over stamped concrete on a regular basis has some people convinced that the surface would quickly fade and lose its luster. Manufacturers take the demands placed on the produce into account by adding special coatings to the materials, which keeps it intact. Sealing it every two to three years will also keep the investment looking great.

3. Same Look & Faster Installation

Windham-Connecticut-concreteAlthough pavers can be assembled to mimic this stamped look, the latter is often a more durable installation. Stamped concrete comes in large slabs, whereas pavers are individual blocks that could shift out of place or break under heavy loads. Because each paver needs to be laid in the ground, installing it could be more time-consuming than a stamped installation.
