What is Imprinted Concrete?
Pattern Imprinted Concrete is a great choice for a new driveway in Manchester. It is an attractive alternative to block paving, tarmac or resin, with all the appearance benefits, plus increased durability. The patterned concrete technique allows us to create a multitude of different designs and patterns but in a solid single layer.
Pattern imprinted concrete, often known as stamped concrete, is a very popular decorative concrete technique thanks to the extensive range of colour options and finishes it offers homeowners.
How does Imprinted Concrete work?
A highly innovative method of imprinting the surface of freshly poured ready mixed concrete, pattern imprinted concrete can give the look of stone, cobbles, brick, slate or even timber decking.
To create the surface, concrete is laid to fill the specified area. Before the concrete has fully set, the chosen design is pressed into the upper surface to create a repeating pattern in a stone,paved or other design. Greenleaf Paving & Landscaping Ltd also uses a separate shaped stencil to add edging patterns to really finish off the look.
Once the concrete has been left to fully cure, the final driveway, path or patio surface is ready to use and will last for many years.
Why choose imprinted concrete for your driveway in Manchester?
Patterned imprinted concrete gives customers the option of a huge range of textures, patterns and finishes, so your new driveway, path or patio is guaranteed to fit in with the appearance of your property. Concrete is highly versatile as a general-use surface, as it can fit nearly any shape or outline. The patterns chosen might also be technically difficult or even impossible to create using traditional paving methods.
Some of the benefits of pattern imprinted concrete include:
- Extremely easy to maintain & clean
- Very quick and simple to lay & set
- Won’t fade over time
- Strong and robust
- Wide range of unique looks & styles
- Durable and cost effective
- Alternative to standard concrete
Concrete Depth Recommendations
On a regular home driveway, we recommend a minimum depth of 100-125mm (4-5 inches), with any heavy traffic areas having the option of a thicker layer. Patios or pathways don’t need to take the weight of vehicles, so these can often be reduced to a depth of 75-100mm (3-4 inches) saving you money on materials.
We also offer the option of a quality concrete stain or sealer, to greatly improve the wear characteristics of the surface. This makes the imprinted concrete less likely to crack or stain, with the bonus of a lustrous finish. If you’re looking for a pattern imprinted concrete driveway in Manchester, we offer an extensive range of designs, ideas and styles to complement your home. Our skilled and experienced team can create traditional and classic drives or modern and contemporary designs.
