Now that we’ve gotten something like a preamble out of our system, allow us to say a few words about decorative concrete, what it is, and how you can expect Cesar’s Concrete of Johnstown to help make your place of business or home look better than it currently does.
What Is Decorative Concrete?
We’ve talked about colored concrete before, and that is exactly what it sounds like – concrete that is colored. People choose colored concrete in favor of going with the traditional grey, so it’s great if you are looking at color schemes and find one that would wonderful with a particular vibe you have in mind.
We’ve also talked about stamped concrete, which is simply a technique used to replicate other commonly used paving materials like slate, cobblestone or brick. But decorative concrete varies from the aforementioned styles in the sense that decorative concrete is a term which encompasses a variety of processes that all have one thing in common – they customize concrete surfaces. And while colored concrete isn’t for everyone and traditional, grey concrete can be somewhat unimaginative, decorative concrete allows homeowners and business owners alike to have more control over their concrete surfaces using decorative concrete.
Some of the most common kind of decorative concrete processes are listed below.
- Concrete Sealing – this refers to laying a protective coat on a given surface in order to inhibit damage from occurring
- Concrete Staining – simply applying a pattern or solid color to concrete
- Stamped Concrete – this process involves the embedding of a stamped design into the surface
- Concrete Overlays – improving the current design of your concrete by resurfacing it with unique designs
- Concrete Engraving – the act of cutting custom textures into the concrete surface
