Both take the look of regular concrete and completely transform it. The results are always incredible and can add more depth to your installation. So, if you see your perfect patio being exciting and unique to you, consider using stamped and textured concrete.

And, of course, the right pool patio can make a real stylistic difference to better tie in the look of your pool to your more expansive backyard aesthetic.
Concrete Patio Installation Process
Our company has been around for years providing excellent quality concrete patios. We make ourselves responsible for providing you with the outdoor space of your dreams. We developed and implemented a strict installation process to ensure the same quality work outputs for all our clients. Our process includes the following steps:
Step 1: Planning
As a company, we start every project by planning and decision-making. We throw several concrete patio ideas at you to decide what you want for your property. We suggest what we think will look best for your outdoor space. But, you will always be the one to decide. If you have an existing vision for the area, we suggest showing us patio pictures that look similar. It would be easier for our design team to develop designs for your space. Once you have decided, we will immediately proceed with the following steps. It is vital to know that a well-planned patio lasts for years.
Step 2: Site Preparation and Delivery of Materials
We need to start on a clean slate. It makes the job more accessible, and it ensures a stable foundation. During site preparation, we clear out the space for dirt and debris. We make sure nothing blocks the project area. We then set up form boards according to the shape you prefer. Form boards are vital in ensuring we execute the project as expected. Also, during this process, we make sure all materials are in place. We schedule delivery before the actual start of the installation. Our team ensures everything we need, from concrete mix to concrete finishing tools.
Step 3: Preparation of Concrete Mix
Once the site is ready, we proceed with mixing the concrete mix. We use high-quality concrete mixtures to ensure high-end results. It is vital to know that although we use ready-mix concrete, projects require specific ratios of materials.
Step 4: Pouring Concrete
Once the concrete mix is ready, we immediately proceed with pouring concrete. Properly poured concrete creates seamless concrete slabs that are durable and long-lasting. In most cases, we prefer concrete slabs over concrete pavers. The latter, while nice-looking, can be very challenging to maintain.
Step 5: Curing of Concrete
The curing process immediately begins once done with pouring concrete. It is essential to know that while it should be ready for foot traffic after 24 to 48 hours, concrete cures entirely after 28 days. We always advise our clients to wait for the concrete to cure to enjoy its maximum performance for years.
Type of Concrete Patio Finishes
We understand that each client is unique from the other. That is why we offer a selection of concrete patio finishes to choose from. Depending on your preference, you may opt for any of the following:
Turn flat surfaces into edgier ones through concrete stamping. Also known as decorative concrete, stamping replicates other more expensive construction materials like your favorite natural stone, wood, or tile. More so, you can choose the colors, pattern, or texture of your choice. We can help you achieve the concrete patio of your dreams for less through this process.
We recommend applying a broom finish for families with kids who love to run outdoors. This is because this type of concrete finish makes the surface non-slip. We use a broom to achieve the textured concrete finish, as the name implies. To ensure an outstanding result, we make sure the surface is smooth.
Concrete pavers are ideal for patios and walkways. Depending on your patio design, you can also create fire pits. Concrete pavers are an outstanding option for homeowners who want to achieve specific patterns and textures. Made of concrete, it also comes in different colors to choose from.
Trowel finish is a prevalent type of concrete patio finish. It is ideal for homeowners who want the typical smooth finish for their patios. To achieve such a finish, we get rid of excess concrete using a trowel. We do the process right after pouring concrete and levelling it.
Exposed aggregate is another popular option for those who want a slip-resistant concrete patio. It's also an ideal choice if you want a fire pit on the deck. As the name implies, this process exposes aggregates such as sand and stones. To achieve such a finish, we remove the outer skin of cement paste. Through it, we get to uncover decorative coarse aggregate.
