Stamped concrete architecture

Stamped concrete, commonly referred to as imprinted concrete, is concrete that is designed to resemble brick, slate, flagstone, stone, tile and even wood.

This is why at Beton Estampe JM we want to take the time to explain to you in detail how stamped concrete can be used to beautify your pool decks, driveways, entries, courtyards, and patios.

Due to the wide array of options when it comes to concrete pattern, concrete colors, and the cost of stamped, or imprinted concrete in relation to the materials it is a substitute for, the choice of stamped concrete is becoming more popular and frequent.

Colors and patterns for stamped cement can be often chosen to blend with other stone, tile or impressed concrete elements at your residence. Complex designs incorporating steps, courtyards, and patios can be achieved when patterns are pressed into the concrete. The stamps can also be blended with other decorative concrete elements such as exposed aggregate finishes and acid-etch staining, along with a particular pattern, such as running bond brick, hexagonal tile, worn rock or stone. Our concrete stamp designs provides the perfect canvas for creating an economical replica of more expensive materials, and yet still maintaining a very natural, authentic look.

Stamped Concrete Cost

Stamped concrete driveway cost and stamped patio cost.

The initial cost to install stamped concrete can vary widely, depending on the labor and the complexity of the job. But in general, you'll pay about $12 to $14 per square foot for basic stamped concrete (using just one pattern and color) to $15 or more per square foot for more elaborate multi-pattern designs including borders and or medallions with special coloring effects, such as hand-applied stain accents.

While the stamped concrete cost may exceed that for asphalt or plain concrete, it is competitive with or sometimes even lower than the cost of installing natural stone and brick or precast pavers. The main reason is the labor component at Beton Estampe JM we believe that it is more economical to pour concrete and apply a pattern than to haul and place individual paving units by hand.

And keep in mind that your initial outlay for a stamped concrete project is only part of the total cost equation. Don't forget to consider these important factors:

  • Longevity and upkeep. Concrete generally lasts longer and requires less maintenance than most other paving materials, which can add up to big savings over the pavement's lifetime.
  • Increase in resale value. Decorative stamped concrete adds curb appeal and aesthetic value to your home, allowing you to maximize the return on your investment.

If you're on a tight budget, you can still achieve impressive results by mixing stamped concrete with fields of less-expensive plain concrete, such as a installing a driveway with only a border of stamped concrete. Or call us to do the work in stages, maybe tackling the front driveway and walkway one year followed by your backyard patio or pool deck a year or two later. Your patience will be rewarded!

Vertical Overlays, Steps and Suspended Decks

Create decorative wall coverings with lightweight cement-based overlays to mimic stone, brick and many other materials.

You've seen how decorative stamping can add beauty and drama to concrete floors, sidewalks, driveways and other horizontal surfaces. But did you know you can use similar stamping and texturing techniques to enhance vertical surfaces, such as the walls inside your home or business, a fireplace front or an exterior privacy wall?

At Béton Estampé JM we are literally climbing the walls to demonstrate new vertical applications for their artistry. We are defying gravity with the use of new lightweight cement-based wall overlay materials that can be applied directly over virtually any properly prepared wall surface, including concrete and masonry, wood, cement board, plaster, drywall and even insulating concrete forms (ICFs).

These tenacious mixes are formulated to go on thickly without sagging, allowing them to be embellished with deep rock textures, wood-grain patterns, grout joints and many other carved or imprinted designs created with special stamps, texturing skins and sculpting tools. What's more, vertical overlays can be colored and stained to simulate the appearance of natural stone, brick or other wall materials.

Stamped vertical overlays are one of the newest trends in decorative concrete, visit our Steps and Suspended Decks Photo Gallery, we can turn basements into stone-walled coves and old closets into wine cellars.
