Stamped Concrete Patios
Doesn't matter if you are in Stockton, Manteca, Modesto, Lodi, Tracy, or Galt, as of late, the most commonly requested type of patio has been that of stamped concrete patios. And for good reason. By using concrete stamps, coloring, and some skill, contractors like ourselves are able to create surfaces with the appearance being very similar to other types of materials. The demand for stamped concrete has been steadily increasing, and is now at the top of people's list when it comes to renovations on their property. A skilled person or company has the ability to make concrete literally have the appearance of stone, tile, brick, and wood, without actually being that material. Stamped concrete is now the best alternative to using those materials because of how closely the resemblance will be to these materials, without the regular maintenance required nor the expensive price tag that comes along with it.
Our concrete layers particularly love the outpouring support and requests for stamping concrete because it just looks so neat and can really bring some major originality to every property.
A stamped concrete patio can match the coloring and styles of your interior or exterior of your home, to create the feeling of having your property extended outside the inside of your house. Commonly, people will have a patio installed right near the backdoor of their home where they can design the space to be an extension of a living room with the help of some furniture. You can even match the concrete to the furniture plan you want for your home! Matching your brick fireplace with a stamped brickform patio helps your entire yard match. Some would go for a stamped tile concrete patio to match the tiles of the inside of your house or your pool deck (we do those too).
Patios are often used for a nice lounge area to relax, and enjoy the feeling of being outside, but totally comfortable. If you have a pool, barbecue, fireplace, or other accessories outside, the patio can help create a fresh and inviting environment to enjoy the general aspects of life. By designing your concrete with stamps, you can create a guide to the type of feelings you want to be had outside.

Painted, Colored, and Stained Patios
Other than the functionality and durability of a concrete slab, people often will go with a patio made of concrete due to the flexibility of designs, patterns, and color options. With the right blending of colors, patios can mimic other materials. For example, stamped patios are often requested for people who want to create a surface that looks like to be made of stone or brick, and through the use of stamping, and integral colors, color hardeners, liquid release, dry powders, and concrete staining, we can your classy creative style to your yard.
Coloring stamped concrete really will complete the process of attempting to mimic other material rather than an obvious concrete slab. You know your patio is doing what it is supposed to when people begin mistaking your concrete for actual bricks, or actual pieces of stone slabs rather than what it really is. Earth tone colors have been the norm for concrete patios in recent years, but, we have been certainly getting an uptick in customers who want to get real abstract and creative with the colors used on their patio. Vibrant colored patios designs have increased as of late and we are finding ourselves using more yellows, blues, purples, oranges, greens, and even whites.
Painting concrete patios are also an option after your concrete has already been molded into place. You can physically paint your concrete patios, but it hardly will stick like a professional concrete staining would. Use acid staining or a water based acrylic causes the desired colors to stick about an 1/8" into the surface of the dried concrete where it will last for a much longer duration than a simple paint job. Plus, it looks way better. Stained concrete patios bring out more of the secondary colors in the surface of the concrete and will make the appearance more striking.
When you're adding a plain or stamped concrete patio, usually it is for the purpose of having more of a people presence in your yard for people to sit or stand and chit chat.
