Boost Curb Appeal with Stamped Concrete

Updated: May 25

Stamped Concrete Makes a Statement

Have you tried adding flowers and mulch to spruce up your tired walkway or front yard patio, but your old concrete is begging for retirement? Or, does your driveway have dandelions emerging through the winding cracks creating an interesting (but unwanted) pattern of yellow blooms? You can try cleaning it, putting flowers alongside of it, and even painting it—but maybe the disappointment you feel every time you look at your tired concrete is starting to get as old as your walkway. With the innovations in patterns, textures, colors, and application, stamped concrete could be the answer to freshen up your curb appeal and also add to your property value.

Today’s stamped concrete has come along way since the days of only being able to choose a broom-finished walkway, entryway, or sidewalk. Now you can have the look of materials like stone, wood, slate, or other natural materials with stamped concrete. And, it can give you the look you want for a price that’s a lot easier on your wallet than the real materials that it aims to mimic.

Another popular way people are creating an interesting focal point in their entryways and front yard patios are with stamped concrete medallions that can have multiple colors within the design. This concrete stamp is called the Rose Compass. Our concrete contractors will place the stamp in the correct accurate direction.

You'd be surprised at how many times our homeowners actually use this compass stamp to understand North, South, East, or West.

Add a Stamped Concrete Accent / Antiuqing Color

At Gruttudaurio Masonry, we have a recommended 3-Step Stamped Concrete Design Process. If you want to add drama, definition, and color variation to your base color, we recommend having us apply a translucent accent color to the surface as seen in this stamped concrete patio photo. This third step in our process gives depth to the stamp pattern you've chosen by filling in the grout lines, and all of the nooks and crannies of your stamp design. Visit our Step 3 Accent Color website page to see the colors that are available.
