Stamped Patio Repairs
When you hear the words ‘concrete patio,’ you probably picture a no-muss, no-fuss boring old slab of light-gray stone, but stamped concrete is a different story. Quickly becoming one of the most popular types of hardscape material, stamped concrete lets you pull off a high-end look without the high-end cost. Additionally, it’s durable, easy to install (you can even do it yourself), free of cracks for grass or weeds to grow through, and it’s surprisingly customizable. There are several reasons why homeowners should consider using stamped concrete, as it is an excellent option for a variety of property improvements. Stamped concrete is an excellent option for patios, walks and driveways.
Types of Patio repairs
- English Yorkstone Pattern Stamped Concrete: his is one of the most popular stamped concrete patterns around, and if you didn’t know better, you probably wouldn’t realize that it’s concrete! Inspired by natural, fractured stone, this random interlocking design gives us the impression that we’re looking at painstakingly laid stone tiles. In reality, it’s a stamped concrete pattern that’s achieved with three imprinting tools. The tools create broken edges and rounded corners that give the appearance of authentic, hand-cut stone.
- Weathered Wood Stained Stamped Concrete: Many stamped concrete specialists (yes, there is such a thing) offer stamp patterns and concrete stains that mimic the grain and finish of natural wood. Wood patterned stamping tools feature beveled edges that create the effect of individual wood flooring planks. When it comes to withstanding the tests of time and weather, your faux-wood stamped concrete patio is certainly a superior option. And you can always re-stain your stamped concrete every few years to sharpen the detailed ‘wood grain.’
- Coble Field Brick Stamped Concrete: Creating the classic look of a natural clay brick patio might seem time consuming and labor intensive, but with stamped concrete this industrial-inspired design is a breeze. Stamped concrete patio installation requires a fraction of the time and budget that it would take to incorporate real brick flooring into your landscape design, which is always a winning combination!
- Random Flagstone Stamped Concrete: The experts at King Concrete’s Design Impressions added a little rustic charm to this quaint backyard by incorporating decorative concrete to the overall patio design. Embossed to resemble randomly assorted flagstones, this stamped concrete style is easily one of our favorites. Affordable, easy to install, unique design
- Slate Tile Stamped Concrete: Now here’s a patio that’s truly inspiring. It features stamped concrete that looks like slate tile. The natural looking material adds a warm beauty and richness to this landscape design perfect for summer soirees. The variation in color means that when it comes to spills you don’t have to worry as much about stains, not to mention, stamped concrete is an easy to clean, low-maintenance material.
- Cobblestone Stamped Concrete: There is something very old-world about the look and feel of cobblestones. They immediately transport you to another place and time. And while you might love the look, who wants to deal with the maintenance? Luckily, you can achieve the same aesthetic with stamped concrete, and bonus: You’ll never trip over a loose brick or have to repair a cracked stone.
- River Stone Stamped Concrete: An oversize river stone concrete stamp gives this patio its modern style. There’s a bit of a trade off on the stone veneer that runs along the base of the fire pit and retaining wall, though: While it’s definitely an aesthetically appealing addition, it is the kind of labor-intensive detailing that tends to drive prices up.
Tackling a cracked and uneven patio concrete can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Repairing and leveling concrete is a pretty straightforward process and requires just a few tools. In a single day you can have a piece of concrete that looks fresh and new.
- Seal the Patio: The first part of repairing the cement patio concrete is to seal any cracks to prevent them from spreading up into the new layer of concrete that you will use to level the surface. A caulking gun loaded with either a tube of concrete repair or polyurethane sealant will do. As you pull the trigger, slowly move along the crack, forcing repair compound into the crack. Apply a second compound into the crack if needed. Allow it to dry completely, following the manufacturer’s directions, before moving on.
- Apply the primer: Patio concrete self-leveling requires a primer in order to fully adhere to the surface. Look for latex concrete bonding primer. Roll or paint the primer onto the concrete. Make sure that every inch, including the corners, is covered in primer. Any spots that are missed will cause the leveler to not adhere, which will result in cracking and pitting. Allow the primer to dry completely.
- Apply the leveler: Pour the leveler onto the area. Use a trowel to spread the leveler around the space and feather it onto the edges of the area that you are working with to create a natural transition. Keep in mind that you only have 10 minutes or so to work with the leveler, so work fast. Once you have smoothed the leveler across the space, allow it to dry. It should be set enough that you can walk on it within four hours.
