Decorative concrete made from ready mix concrete consists of sand, gravel, Portland cement, water and other additives. For stained concrete, caustic materials such as metallic salts, diluted hydrochloric acid, dyes and hydrated lime are used to produce gorgeous colors, but this also requires the use of these dangerous chemicals, meaning that it is always safest and best to allow professional contractors of concrete to handle these types of jobs around the home. They are trained in their appropriate use, and can achieve reliable results in the safest manner possible. Stamped concrete uses specialty molds and other techniques to create concrete surfaces that resemble flagstone, cobblestone, brick and even hardwood floors. Many patterns are available, so you have a broad range of choices when it comes to ready mix concrete flooring for your patio, walkways or driveway.
A footpath can be constructed from rough, pre-cast concrete slabs but these generally are a little dull. A more interesting design can be crafted using molded concrete, with any number of patterns or shapes. Stepping stones are an interesting alternative to the traditional path. When made from uneven stone, a good and usable result can be hard to achieve. Using molded concrete stones instead provides a reliable result that can be stained to look like natural stone, whilst still allowing for an even and walkable finish.
