What type of reinforcement will be used?
Newly Installed Stamped "English Cobblestone" Concrete
Common Repair Methods and Installation Techniques
Stamped concrete could be referred to as textured or imprinted concrete that is made to look like stone, slate, cobblestone, or flagstone, and even brick or wood. By adding base colors to the concrete prior to placement, then applying a release color to create a cost-effective, natural, and authentic look, concrete can assume any color, shape, design, pattern, or texture through the use of stamped concrete.
What methods will be used for placement of concrete?
Concrete Overlay with Stamped "Chiseled Slate" Concrete Application
When surface imperfections are present in existing concrete, a concrete overlay may be the most cost-effective method of repair in opposition to removal and replacement. Many of today's overlay systems combine polymer resins with cement and additives to improve wear resistance and aesthetic qualities. Concrete overlays may be applied as thin as 1/16th of an inch thick up to several inches. Additionally, concrete overlays are often done in conjunction with stamped concrete applications.
When concrete shows signs of wearing such as deep widespread cracking, spalling, sinking, frost-heave or any other surface deterioration, complete removal and replacement of the concrete may be necessary. At this stage, improving the structural integrity of the slab is our main goal. In most cases, a concrete overlay or resurfacing product is a short term repair, as the concrete surface would show signs of the same types of deterioration soon after the repair was made.
