Stamped Concrete: The best option for Swimming Pool Decks

Concrete was already used in ancient Rome, and although the ancient builders did not use reinforcing steel, many of the concrete core structures are still standing, like the Aqueducts or the dome of the Pantheon. While the Romans added horsehair to prevent cracking, today a wire mesh will increase the durability of the concrete - even when exposed to harsh winter weather.

Eye catching
There are various ways to customize the looks of the stamped concrete surface. Ask Monroe landscaper and pool builder Jamie Snyder about the different options. There are basically two ways to add color. The concrete can be dyed, which will give the surface a brighter look. Stains will make it look more naturally colored. A great option if your other, more expensive choice, would be natural stone.

In addition to the low cost the easy maintenance is another huge advantage of stamped concrete. While natural stone and precast pavers require regular weeding and refilling of the joints, stamped concrete simply needs to be resealed every few years to protect the surface from stains and the colors from fading.

Versatile and Easy to install
Since the concrete can simply be poured and pumped into place, the installation is twice as fast as putting in natural stone for example. And the concrete can be poured in any shape, which makes this building material incredibly versatile. Todays stamping patterns can give your concrete any look you want: flagstone, natural stone, tiles or something new and unique. Contact The Albert Landscaping Group for all available options.
