Stamped Concrete vs. Pavers
Stamped concrete is a continuous concrete surface that has been "stamped" to look very similar to individual pavers, bricks and stone. There are several reasons to consider stamped concrete over pavers for a patio, walkway, driveway or pool deck.
Many homeowners are deciding on stamped concrete over pavers because of the spaces that are left between pavers. These spaces allow weeds to grow between the individual pavers; something that will not happen with stamped concrete.
Aesthetically, stamped concrete is able to give the look that many people identify with individual pavers. With a multitude of stamp patterns and color choices, a homeowner can select a very natural look for their surface. There are stamps that can be used to look like slate, granite, cobblestone and even wood surfaces. With all the choices available and because of the ease of maintenance, stamped concrete has become a new favorite with homeowners.
