DRIVEWAYS & PATIOS

Stamped Concrete

Sample title

Stamped concrete is the process of pressing decorative or natural impressions into wet concrete using rubber stamps. This is a great way to add a unique flair to your pool deck, patio, walkway or driveway. 

There are many benefits to using stamped concrete. Concrete is one of the most durable building materials available for paving, this comes in handy for high traffic areas such as driveways and walkways. With proper preparation, steel reinforcing and finishing techniques, stamped concrete is second to none in terms of its durability.

Choosing stamped concrete over other paving materials (such as natural stone) can be a more economical choice. When installed properly, with rebar enforcing as done at Impressions, stamped concrete can offer the same looks as natural stone and slate but with the durability to last a lifetime. The biggest advantage to stamped concrete is the variety of appearances and colours combined with the durability of concrete.  Concrete stamping provides unlimited design opportunities such as aged cobblestones, brickwork, flagstones, slate tile, marble, granite, wood, or just about any natural surface. Take a look at the wide variety of textures and colours we can offer below.


Benefits of Stamped Concrete

1. Concrete requires very little maintenance and is easy to clean. 
2. Concrete is exceptionally durable. 
3. Second only to water, concrete is the second most consumed substance on earth. 
4. Concrete can simulate the look of other materials. It can be coloured, textured and stamped to resemble brick, flagstone, wood, slate, marble and granite. 
5. When installed inside a home, radiant heated concrete can reduce energy consumption by as much as 50% due to its excellent thermal mass energy consumption. 
6. Concrete is completely non-combustible (classified A1 fire retardant material) and has a slow rate of heat transfer, making it highly effective against the spread of fire. 
7. Concrete is non-allergenic – it does not harbor dust, dirt, pollen, or other allergens. 
8. Concrete is “pet friendly” – accidents wipe up with a damp cloth. 
9. Concrete allows endless possibilities for creative custom design.

Interlock

Sample title

Combine the durability of concrete with the beauty of interlocking stone with our wide variety of pavers and masonry. Interlocking stone provides an admirable curb appeal at the front of the house and a sense of charm and elegance around the house.

We prepare the surface for placement of interlocking stone differently than most other interlock installers. We pour a reinforced concrete base under our interlocking stone jobs. This base creates a structural slab that prevents shifting bricks and weeds from poking through the surface, making your project virtually maintenance free. We can also help you create lasting flowerbeds and retaining walls, by using concrete as a footing for the walls to eliminate potential shifting of stones.

Jewelstone

Jewelstone can be used on old, damaged concrete to transform it to have a beautiful decorative faux stone finish at a fraction of the cost of replacing the concrete. Jewelstone can be used both indoors and outdoors, in commercial and residential settings, to bring old concrete back to life with greater durability and strength than before. It is ideal for terraces, patios, walkways, garages, and in commercial settings with a near limitless number of colour and design options.
