Top Masonry Patterns for Stamped Concrete

Concrete stamping is the process of imprinting patterns on a new concrete slab or an overlay that resemble stone, brick, and other traditional paving materials. More and more property owners, both residential and commercial, are opting for stamped concrete because of the many benefits it provides. This is a cost-effective method because it acquires the expensive look at a more affordable cost. Stamped concrete patios, pool decks, and driveways are also easier to clean and maintain than the material they are imitating. Here are some of the top stamped concrete patterns available today:

Natural Rock Garden Stone

This pattern involves varying stone sizes, all with a smooth, naturally flat texture. The edges of the stones are often rounded but with a bit of a worn or weathered look.

Fractured Slate

Slate is known to cut to slightly flat surfaces, making fractured slate a popular choice for walking surfaces. This can be stamped on the entire surface as one continuous stone slab. It can also be stamped as interlocking pavers in a random ashlar pattern. Edges are often straight with square edges.

Cobblestone

Remember the old pavements from olden times? A cobblestone pattern features cube-like pavers with rounded corners. This can be laid out in straight lines, in a running brick fashion, or a more decorative pattern, like European fan.

Flagstone

Flagstone is one of the most common masonry patterns in concrete stamping. It features irregularly sized stones in varying colors. The color options for a flagstone surface is almost limitless. This can be made more realistic with manual concrete staining.

Tile

Tiles are the easiest masonry patterns in stamped concrete, popularly used on pool decks and patios. Most contractors cut or score the overlay instead of stamping on it. The tiles are stained and sealed to replicate real outdoor tile.
