Why Choose Concrete?

We specialize in poured concrete installations, repairs and removal, and stamped concrete and resealing applications. These are typically inclusive of concrete flatwork, tilted or erected structures grouped into four categories.

Poured Concrete

Poured concrete installation generally requires a subgrade (the soil the pavement is built on), a subbase (the materials between the subgrade and the pavement), or a base course and steel reinforcement when necessary.

Standard Installation

We offer a seamless poured concrete installation process. First, we measure the area receiving the concrete. (Excavation may or may not be required beforehand.) Next, we level the area and slope if needed.

Concrete Repair

Even the most durable poured concrete is subject to long-term wear and tear. Specifically, poured concrete can be damaged over time by negligence, improper handling and maintenance, eroded subgrade, and more.

Stamped Concrete

Stamped concrete is an embossed concrete texture or pattern that replicates natural building products like slate, stone, tile, wood, or flagstone. It is easy to maintain and can increase the value of your home.

Concrete Resealing

We offer resealing as a maintenance service for durability and preserving the life of your concrete surface. Specifically, we recommend having your stamped concrete surface resealed every 1-2 years.

Re-Sealer Application

This service includes a comprehensive inspection of the concrete surface, with the aim of determining whether sealer deterioration or residue is present.

Pavers Vs. Stamped Concrete

Should you use pavers or stamped concrete for your patio or driveway? The answer depends fully on the nature of your project, your budget, and what you are hoping to achieve. This section describes both options in more detail and will help you navigate the best solution for your needs.

There is truly no limit to what you can do!

First of all, both applications are exceptionally beautiful and will add value to your property. Stamped concrete, however, offers more flexibility by way of design. When it comes to pavers, you can stack, swap, or include different colors in contrast and capstones—but stamped concrete can also add printed and textured designs such as leaf prints, pebble stones, or even Italian slate.

Customers who are interested in adding intricate detailing and aesthetics to their project should consider stamped concrete. There is truly no limit to what you can do!

Paver joints, meanwhile, need to be re-grouted with polymeric or river-washed sand. Weed and moss are often intrusive and protrude though the joints over time, which may lead to increased wear or even crumbling. Constant rain may also drain the materials between the joints and under the pavers, leaving the pavers subject to color fading.

To this end, pavers require a 3-5-year routine maintenance. This entails weed removal, pressure washing, the removal of deteriorated sealant, the addition of polymeric sand between the joints, and then some light watering and finally resealing.

Of Note:

The subgrade and the subbase of stamped concrete only needs to be completed once before installation. Pavers, however, MUST be installed on a completely leveled, even surface. If they do not meet the relevant criteria, the customer may be subject to a significant cost increase. Achieving the level surface requires activities like excavation, grading, fiber installation, base prep, and more. The total cost incorporates a longer construction cycle and materials than that of stamped concrete installation.

Re-Sealing Maintenance

For stamped concrete, re-sealing is about the only maintenance required to prevent color fading. It should be completed routinely, every 1-2 years. Stamped concrete needs no polymeric sanding, grows no weeds, and does not require building up the substrate level. If your concrete is fading, appears porous, give us a call for a free quote.

Re-Sealing Price

The re-sealing fee for stamped concrete starts at $150 and could go higher depending on the size of the surface area, but it still does not pass the threshold of maintaining pavers. Need your concrete slab re-sealed? Call us now for your free estimate.
