Stamped concrete is easier to style because you can manipulate a wet concrete easily. To create the white swirly design, a little white cement is added to the mixture. This resembles the image of a marble. So, you have a marble-looking set of bricks. You don’t even have to worry in measuring the area of your pathway if the bricks fits in it. These are just cement with a brick-looking finish. It takes any kinds of shapes.
Stamped concrete is also very durable because unlike real bricks, this does not easily be removed. It is also not slippery and takes the texture as if these are real bricks. This is very safe for little kids who are around the house running all day.
Don’t worry if it looks new and very not brick like. In a matter of time, with a few more walking in and out of the house, it will eventually fade. It will look even more cool for each passing time. Soiled stamped bricks are more attractive when they are older.
