Concrete slabs can lack interest and design elements. To enhance the overall look of your concrete pad, you can emboss the newly poured concrete to take on the look of brick, flagstone, stone, tile, wood and other patterns. Stamped concrete can be on the less expensive side when it is compared to pavers. This is good news for those of us who want the look, but not the high cost associated with it. Stamped concrete can be installed into your outdoor living space, sidewalk or driveway with skill and precision. Stamped concrete can be utilized for commercial and residential purposes.
Pavers are a great option for homeowners who want the brick paths, driveways or other areas. They are constructed of a thick mixture that is resilient to cracking. If the pavers are installed properly then they should have an optimal and long life. Improper installation can mean that the pavers are prone to crack due to ill preparation.

Stamped concrete looks great for the first three to four years. After this period of time however, the concrete can start to fade and look foggy. To fix this a resealing must be completed to restore the color and brightness to the concrete. Maintaining the surface of your concrete can absolutely extend the lifespan of your installment. Resealing your concrete will give life back to the surface and appearance of your walkway, driveway or slab. The amount of weathering and wear and tare that your pavement takes will affect the lifespan of your sealing.
Retaining walls are constructed t resist the pressure of soil when you are changing the elevation that surpasses the angle of repose of earth. Retaining walls can be used in your property to maximize the space you have for outdoor entertaining and use. Retaining walls are commonly built out of pavers, as they are more appealing to the eye. Professionals to ensure that the ground has been leveled and compacted and that the pavers will not loose strength should install pavers. Structural integrity is important to retaining walls; if your wall is not constructed properly with the stability it needs to hold the dirt back disaster can follow.
