We would like to introduce you to the world of pattern imprinted concrete and what practical benefit, visual enhancement and value it will add to your property.
Concrete has been a solid, reliable and enduring product within all aspects of domestic, industrial and commercial building industries for years and has stood
the test of time.
Within the last few years, 'PIC' (Pattern Imprinted Concrete) has superseded its rivals such as block paving, 'PIC' is installed by using selective moulds and non-fade dye's which are impregnated into a smooth finished concrete surface and tamped down to provide the pattern imprint, this is then repeated throughout the required area. The dye also acts as a surface hardener to provide extra durability and when sealed can be 25% harder than conventional concrete.
A variety of stamped patterns are on the market today to add natural-looking effects and dimension to concrete surfaces. There are many manufacturers with their own line
of designs, but two of the most commonly installed patterns are ashler slate and cobblestone.
Concrete can be coloured in a variety of ways through the use of concrete stains, integral colour, colour hardeners, or concrete dyes. The type of colouring method is usually chosen based on the application where it will be applied. For example, will it be indoors or outdoors? Some colours are not UV-resistant. Are neutral tones desired or brighter, more vibrant tones? Stains will impart more naturally-coloured neutral tones, whereas dyes will give brighter colouring.
With a range of colours and patterns to choose from, you can tailor your imprinted concrete installation to your personal taste.
This may include: Colours | Patterns | Boundary Lines | Planters | Steps.
During the visit, we will also offer you information on the various stages of the processes involved in the installation and answer any questions you may have. Once you have confirmed your requirements, we will give you a week commencing date for the work to start. Obviously the UK weather plays a huge part in the scheduling process and therefore it may be subject to change.
