Boost Curb Appeal with Stamped Concrete



Maybe you’ve tried adding flowers and mulch to spruce up your tired walkway or front yard patio, but your old concrete is begging for retirement. Or, your driveway has dandelions emerging through the winding cracks in your driveway creating an interesting (but unwanted) pattern of yellow blooms. You can try cleaning it, putting flowers alongside of it, and even painting it—but 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 design, texture, and application, stamped concrete could be the answer to freshen up your curb appeal and also add to your property value.

Versatile Designs


Today’s stamped concrete has come along way since the days of broom swept gray patios and sidewalks. If you would like the look of materials like stone, wood, slate, or other natural materials but your budget may not allow, stamped concrete can give you the look you want for a price that’s a lot easier on your wallet. 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.
