FYF Corp. - Stamped Concrete Patios

Stamped Concrete has been around for many years. Over the years the creative masons at FYF Corp.concrete.com have articulated this fine art and have infused concrete casting and science into the most innovative & elegant flooring on the market today.

Chemically engineering the concrete to simulate brick, stone, slate, cobblestone and even wood is an integral part of Foundation Contractorsany decorative concrete project. If these consequential variables are not encompassed into the stamped concrete equation the result can be a finish that will be very noticeably artificial not to mention antonymous of the purpose of even installing stamped concrete versus the natural stone or slate appearance intended.

A synthetic slate, cobble or flagstone stamped concrete patio for instance will be just like its natural counterpart in virtually every way. This includes the same basic geological structure, chemical composition, colors, and other characteristics. Many times the synthetic will fool even seasoned masons. Only minor characteristics allow separation of a synthetic slate or cobble stamped concrete from the natural materials.

The rationalization of the maintenance free characteristics of a synthetic reinforced stamped concrete floor, patio or driveway compared to installing the actual natural stone materials is that the stones will require Foundation Contractorscontinuous maintenance and requires a reinforced concrete sub-base that will drive the cost up an average 32% to 41% more that using the elegant, ever-lasting and distinguished decorative concrete systems available by a few very select companies in the USA.

The cost differential of decorative concrete versus plain concrete has some young and inexperienced concrete companies venturing into the stamped concrete Industry at an alarming rate and unfortunately the above described chemical engineering variables or proper molding techniques are not being utilized and as of late we have realized that homeowners are unfortunately paying the cost for a "knock-off" stamped concrete patio, driveway or slab.

Back yards, especially concrete patios, are being transformed into luxurious extensions of the house. They're the new favorite room to relax, entertain, and cook. And the heart and soul of the backyard resort area is the concrete patio.

The Hearth, Patio, and Barbecue Association, which recently held its annual tradeshow and exposition, says the growth of the outdoor living phenomena is the result of North America's interest in 'cocooning,' the trend toward a more casual lifestyle, an aging population and the popularity of porches, decks, and concrete patios in homes. Concrete patios, sometimes referred to as cement patios, provide the perfect sanctuary for outdoor living spaces because they are often connected to the house and blend the interior with the exterior living areas. For example, homeowners can match the stone facade of their house by installing decorative concrete to create a stone patio without the expense of installing traditional individual stones. With stamped concrete, homeowners can get the look of flagstone, brick and many other patterns when stamp patterns are pressed into freshly poured concrete.

The swimming pool industry sees that trend, too. In fact, pools are getting smaller and are playing a less dominant role in the back yard.The Pool and Spa Institute says the pool is just one amenity – an increasing number of homeowners are going all out with outdoor kitchens, furnished seating areas, fireplaces, decorative concrete patios, pizza ovens, elaborate water features, and more.

Homeowners want to enjoy their homes, but they also see upgrading their back yards as an investment. Creating the look of an authentic stone patio, slate patio, or cobblestone patio is more economical to install using decorative concrete, and adds value to the home.
