A natural finish with stamped concrete
A Stamped concrete pool deck gives you a natural brick, stone, rock, or even wood pattern around your pool. Stamped concrete is done during the original placement of the concrete, at a point where the concrete is soft but firm enough to hold its shape, a rubber mat or pattern is stamped into the surface and removed then the concrete is left to set up or harden.
Colors are often added into the concrete itself but can also be added to its surface after the concrete has cured. Generally a sealant or coating is then applied to protect the concrete’s surface and make it easy to maintain and clean.
Stamped concrete is a premium finish but much less than a natural stone or tile finish. It is no wonder why stamped concrete is one of the most popular choices for a pol deck surround.
Even though the installation method is similar for most stamped concrete projects, it is the variety of colors and textures that allow for literally thousands of design choices.
