The stamped concrete patio is popular among homeowners who are working on their home landscaping project. It is most likely due to how this is a faster and more convenient project than having to lay stone or brick for garden patio. Even so, installing stamped concrete for patio is still a complicated project that requires the right materials, tools, expertise, and site conditions for satisfying result. Here are the tips to install stamped concrete well.

It doesnâ't really matter which one among stamped concrete patio ideas you refer, never omit proper subgrade preparation. Itâ's important to the structural integrity of your concrete slab, help drainage, and prevent soil erosion underneath the concrete. When installing, make sure stamped concrete pavements are jointed properly to help controlling cracking. Joints are ideally being cut to a depth of 1/4 the slab thickness at minimum. As the contractor, you hide the joints by incorporating them into concrete pattern lines if possible.

Remember that it is the outdoor conditions your patio is exposed to. Therefore, make sure using the concrete mix that is capable of standing up to the anticipated conditions, such as thawing and freezing, wear and tear from vehicle or foot traffic, and more. Pay more attention to the amount of water in agreement with the cement or water-cement ratio. For denser and more impervious surface, itâ's always recommended to use a dry-shaker color hardener.

Last but not least, do not skimp on reinforcement. It is required to enhance strength and help controlling cracking, especially for many concrete slabs on grade. Reinforcement is also highly necessary for surfaces supporting vehicle traffic, such as driveways. Always keep those important aspects in mind and implement them as you work on planning and preparing the project. Therefore, any of stamped concrete patio design ideas you refer will guarantee you satisfying result!
