Stamped Concrete Overlay

Stamped concrete overlays offer the look and feel of imprinted concrete finishes without having to tear out your existing deck or driveway.

How stamped concrete overlays work

Watch this video for a better understanding of how SUNDEK of Washington applies stamped concrete over existing concrete.

In this process, we pour a thin overlay over your existing concrete surface. We then use a pattern form to stamp your chosen pattern into the overlay. When the overlay dries, it is fully bonded to the concrete beneath.

Design options

Homeowners and business owners are often pleasantly surprised at the variety of options available when it comes to designing with a stamped concrete overlay. In addition to being able to apply a variety of patterns, textures, and customized designs to your surface, we can also mimic the look of many different materials such as fractured slate, cobblestone, English yorkstone, river stone, ashlar stone, wood, brick, limestone and more. We have also created custom stamp mats created to give our customers a one-of-a-kind look.

There are other ways to get creative with your stamped concrete overlay: use more than one color, add aggregates, and incorporate additional scorelines. When it comes to designing your surface, the options are endless!

Safety benefits

When natural stone and pavers get wet, they get slippery. In this region of the country, that’s a problem during our rainy and snowy months. We can apply textures or additives to make your surface slip resistant, making slips and falls less likely.

Stamped overlays on damaged surfaces

Even if your existing surface is damaged, it’s still a candidate for a stamped concrete overlay as long as the surface is viable. We specialize in concrete repair, so we can addres damage to your existing surface, resolve it, then apply the stamped concrete overlay. We are also skilled at identifying the cause of the damage, which means we can help you prevent further damage from happening. We will never suggest resurfacing concrete that is beyond repair.

If you need repair on a stamped concrete surface, we can use our product SunRestore, specifically designed for stamped concrete repair. So instead of having to rip out your entire surface, you’ll be able to transform your surface with our rehabilitation system.

Maintaining your stamped concrete surface

The most important step to making sure your stamped concrete stays looking great is to have a high-quality protective sealer applied. A sealer is important anywhere, but especially in this area of the country where we get lots of snow in winter. We can help you determine a schedule for reapplying your sealer.

For general maintenance, it’s important to sweep and mop once a week or so to prevent stains. For spots that are hard to clean, you can use non-abrasive commercial cleaners. If you see cracks or other imperfections, have them fixed right away so that they don’t turn into larger issues.

Important: Do not use deicing products on your surface, even if the manufacturer claims it’s safe for decorative concrete. When you have your stamped concrete coating installed, we’ll make it slip resistant.
