Decorative Concrete Paving Ideas To Renovate Your Patio
Decorative concrete paving includes our stamped concrete or pattern pave styles, which we have been installing since the 1980's, as well as our newer handcrafted saw-cut finishes. Both have been a popular alternative to concrete pavers and have been used for many patios in Adelaide’s homes. After many years, they still look as good as they did the day they was installed.
Stamped concrete and our handrafted range have many benefits over concrete pavers, because it is one slab of concrete laid down with the pattern stamped or saw-cut into the surface. The result looks like concrete pavers, but it does not have the inherent problems of paving – movement, subsidence, and weeds growing in between the pavers.
Why have the maintenance required of concrete pavers when you don’t need it?
For this reason, many home owners prefer stamped concrete in their patios, not to mention their pathways and driveways too. Why have the maintenance when you don’t need it? The only maintenance you’ll need to do in the patio is an occasional reseal every few years, and a good sweep every week!
There are many styles of stamped concrete to renovate your patio and make it appealing to entertain in once again, whether you have a modern, traditional or heritage home. They are smooth and flat and idea for patio areas. Here are some ideas to consider.
Sandstone Stamped Concrete
Our sandstone range gives an earthy and more rustic appeal to a patio. We have stamped concrete designs that remind us of a European summer, a Mediterranean resort, or even an Australian desert sunset. You can bring the essence of well-loved holidays right into your backyard patio with our sandstone stamped concrete range.
Slate Stamped Concrete
Slate brings more interest and texture to a patio or pool area, as well as bringing more vibrancy with colour choices. Our slate stamped concrete range looks every bit like real slate but without the movement and breakages that come with slate tiles.
Handcrafted Saw-Cut Decorative Concrete
Our handcrafted range of decorative concrete designs are sleek and well suited to modern and contemporary homes. They looks like high end concrete pavers without the price tag. Our customers are pleasantly surprised by the modern and exclusive appeal of our handcrafted concrete paving that comes in at a reasonable price and within their budget.
The design is achieved by saw-cutting square or rectangular shapes into the concrete slab (after it has been laid and hardened a little) that vary from 300 – 600mm in size. The concrete slab can have a smooth appearance or an exposed aggregate milled finish which is finer and smoother than traditional exposed aggregate finishes.
The resulting look is a high end urban-stone look, with clean lines and a clean finish, perfect for patios, pathways and driveways.
