Concrete is a practical and common material used for patios and walkways in the Sacramento area. There are many choices when it comes to deciding which will work best for your style and budget.
Stamped concrete gives the homeowner the ability to customize the finish of the concrete. Depending on the pattern of the stamp, the look can be symmetrical and formal or free formed to create a more casual look. Adding powdered color in layers adds even more depth and interest.
Broom Finish Concrete
Broom finish concrete is practical, economical and smooth on bare feet. It also provides a level surface area for children to play on.
Salt Finish Concrete
Salt finish can be applied to broomed concrete for a small additional cost. The indentations the salt leaves behind adds texture to the smooth finish. Concrete stain and color additives can be used with these finishes to create a unique look and match existing elements.
Concrete sealer is used to give the concrete a polished shine and make cleaning easy. It is water based so it is very easy to apply and should be reapplied every year to keep the concrete looking fresh.
Adding banding and expansion joints to concrete will reduce cracking and adds interest. It can be used to transition existing concrete to new or bring in an existing material such as brick or flagstone into the hardscape.
