Decorative stamped concrete is very popular, if you want to stamp your concrete floors or have a stamped concrete patio you’ve made a good choice. BUT PLEASE –  I would recommend hiring a professional concrete stamping contractor. These steps don’t sound to hard but there are a lot of variables like wind, sun, a hot concrete mix, or half the slab is in the shade and the other half is in the hot sun, that can make stamping concrete very challenging.

Beginners beware – stamped concrete really needs to be left to the professionals. Concrete, especially stamped concrete, is unforgiving and expensive in terms of materials and time. Unlike carpentry, plumbing, or electrical work, concrete does not come apart, and you can’t come back tomorrow to finish if you run out of time or patience. With concrete you only get one chance to do it right, especially with stamping, you have a small window of opportunity to make something that looks really good vs something that doesn’t look good at all.
