Stamped Concrete vs Pavers

Many customers have asked, “What is the difference between stamped concrete vs pavers?” Stamped Concrete is concrete that has been stamped with a design or pattern of the homeowner’s choice. The stamp is applied after the initial concrete is poured and before it hardens. Stamped concrete is commonly colored (tinted) before it is poured. This gives the look of paving stones without the cost of installing actual pavers. This method is a great way to give character and beauty to a driveway, poolside area, or even a walkway alongside a house without a large initial cost. However, as with any other types of concrete, the stamped concrete has a tendency to crack.
