Stamped Concrete South Berwick Maine (ME)
You’ve probably heard of the term “stamped concrete,” but you may not know much about it. Many people have stamped concrete decks at their homes and some companies do it as well. But, what exactly is stamped concrete?
A stamped concrete deck is a brand new deck that has been installed by a stamped concrete deck contractor. This is a method of installing a deck that has not been done in this country for a while. It is a custom installation, which is why it costs more than typical. It can look like a brand new deck, but it is a project that needs a little extra care.
The material to use is pre-cast concrete that is sprayed with powder. It is sprayed so that it has a glossy finish. Then, the concrete is pre-shaped and pre-slabbed. The slab is then laid down on top of the powder coating, which is baked into the concrete.
Once the concrete is baked into the desired shape, it will need to be cured for six to eight weeks before installation begins. This is necessary for it to dry evenly and to maintain its shape once it is placed on the surface of the pool deck.
After it has been installed, a stamped concrete contractor will take a sample of the finished product and stamp it with his or her company logo. This allows the pool deck contractor to be seen from other people on the premises. It also makes it more likely for customers to ask the contractor for advice about repairs, or to get a quote for repair or replacement.
Once it is installed, the deck will need to be sealed. The sealant does not have to be new, but is meant to keep water from getting in between the stamped concrete. It can be applied in a variety of ways, including applying a topcoat, using acid treatment, or even by using chemicals.
In some cases, the deck can actually be made in a factory and stamped by a specific company. In other cases, the stamped concrete may come from a special mold that has been made specifically for this purpose. The mold is specially designed to fit into a certain pre-determined molding that is created for the concrete.
There are other details that you will need to know about this method of installation, such as the material and the process of production, but most of the basics are covered in this article. If you want to install a new deck, or add a new feature to your existing one, this may be the way to go.
