Is Stamped Concrete expensive?
A stamped concrete driveway gives you many decorative options that would otherwise not be possible with other paving materials. By combining stamps, with coloring agents or dyes, a good stamped concrete driveway contractor is able to create realistic facsimiles of common hardscaping materials such as cobblestone, brick, natural slate and flagstone that are more cost effective. Another popular option for driveways, would be asphalt. And while asphalt is very strong just like concrete, it cannot be customized. Asphalt also involves more yearly maintenance. And recently, raw materials for asphalt have become more expensive, so that at the end of the day, the cost for a driveway installation is almost the same. When you hire an excellent stamped concrete contractor who will properly site, seal and maintain the concrete, your driveway will have an attractive surface that will last for a very long time. Some of the most popular imprinted concrete driveway patterns are London Cobble, European Fan, rough stone texture, and sanded slate texture.
