At SATX, we strive to become the ultimate company setting standards for best stamped concrete San Antonio has to offer.
Concrete stamping techniques
We use various high tech methods to produce top quality stamped concrete San Antonio residents have access to. Our techniques include:
Accumulating Accent Color
This involves using secondary colors to bring out the best in terms of texture and aesthetic appeal. Color accumulation also exposes other construction materials and prevents the stamps from sticking to the concrete.
Accumulation of Base Color
When natural building materials need a bit of highlighting to be properly reflected, we use the primary color for stamping. You can choose powdered pigments to produce a hardened surface to the stamp or go for cast-on colors where the whole concrete is dyed.
This involves implanting concrete using another concrete shortly after it has been made. Stamps are made using polyurethane and additional styling can be done using various metals. This allows us to mimic different looks including brick, natural stone and flagstone among others.
Concrete stamping can be done with various colors including walnut, venetian pink, dark red, Arizona tan and platinum grey among others. Patterns also range from English Yorkstone to fractured slate, cobblestone, river stone, limestone and sandstone among others. One great thing about concrete stamping is its broad application. From patios to pool decks and driveways, concrete stamping can be used to make your surfaces unique and different from any other in your neighborhood.
