Stamped Concrete is the process of adding texture and color to concrete to make it resemble natural stone, brick , slate, and other natural products found in nature including wood, fossils,
shells and many more. This limitless array of possibilities combined with great durability and lower cost than natural products makes Stamped Concrete an easy choice for new construction and renovation projects. Stamped concrete offers a great first impression to an entry way to a residence.
Exposed aggregate is a more natural alternative to traditional “broom” finished concrete. This finish emphasizes nature’s true beauty stone. Exposed aggregate combines beauty with practicality. Cosmetically it will enhance your home and landscaping. Practically speaking, it is low maintenance and will look brand new for years to come.
Traditional concrete finishes are broom and smooth. Broom finish concrete provides a durable, non-skid finish, commonly used for conventional outdoor concrete purposes. ie: concrete sidewalks, driveways and staircases etc. Smooth finish concrete is typically used for indoor concrete floors. It allows for easy clean up and acts as a very durable smooth surface finish. ie: garage and basement floors etc.
Concrete walkways or sidewalks are more than just a way to get wherever it is you’re going—they can provide much-needed curb appeal to homes and buildings, and they are fast becoming a point of artistic expression by way of a multitude of decorative concrete options. Silver Concrete can transform your outdated exisiting walkway into a warm, inviting entrance to your home or building that neighbours will want to talk about.
Stamped concrete is a design we incorporate into the concrete to resemble brick, slate, flagstone, cobblestone and other patterns. Natural stone can become costly and require more upkeep than stamped concrete, therefore making stamped concrete much more economical and still capable of achieving a desired look. Because concrete is the most often installed surface for courtyards, and patios, stamped concrete is a popular application for creating a feasible and unique design to compliment your home and backyard. Silver Concrete offers a wide variety of patterns and colors to choose from to achieve your desired look.
Concrete driveways are a great investment into any property. With many years of experience, Silver Concrete can help make your decisions with design easier. Traditional concrete applications are broom finished concrete, exposed aggregate, and stamped concrete. Any of these are visually appealing and have similar longevity—the choice comes down to the owner’s preference and what they find visually appealing for their property.
Waterproofing is needed anytime a structure is built at ground level or below ground. Waterproofing and drainage considerations are especially needed in cases where ground water is likely to build up in the soil and raise the water table. This higher water table causes hydro static pressure to be exerted underneath basement floors and against basement walls. Hydro static pressure forces water in through cracks in foundation walls, through openings caused by expansion and contraction of the footing-foundation wall joint and up through floor cracks. Hydro static pressure can cause major structural damage to foundation walls and is likely to contribute to mold, decay and other moisture related problems. Do not let bad drainage or leaks lead to an unnecessary expense and cause damage to your health and home. Lean on Silver Concrete to give you an expert opinion on the proper solutions to these issues you may have and put your mind at ease.
