Does anyone have the name & number for a good stamped concrete company? We have a huge backyard with pavers that will eventually have to be replaced and we are thinking of going to stamped concrete this time around.

While we are at it we need to get our driveway re-poured but we don't need a stamped concrete driveway just concrete.

Thank you in advance.

I would also love a recommendation... we currently have a 2X5 patio that came with the house... it's so tiny! We'd like to expand it into a screened in room with a patio...

Scott Garrison does great work, he is amazing, not sure if he does stamping though but you can ask and if not he will refer you out I am sure - Sticks & Stones of N.C Inc. is a Landscaping & Masonry Contractor serving Durham North Carolina NC

I'm new to the area, so I don't know what "stamped concrete" is. Can someone fill me in?

Thanks!

I highly recommend Turner Asphalt. I had some work done by them and the results were absolutely remarkable. See the link below then just click on "concrete" to see some of their work.

Paving, Seal Coating, Concrete, Line Striping, Asphalt, Milling, Unilock, Trucking

From what I found out, stamped comcrete is more than pavers.

Wow, that is surprising. We had a 14x16 ft stamped concrete patio along with a winding front walk done at our previous home in RI just 2 years ago. We paid $10 per sf (total cost) for the stamped concrete, the quoted price for pavers was $20 per sf.

Stamped concrete. Poured concrete that is finished by applying a pattern such as stone, brick, block, or whatever mold the concrete installer can rent to make the top surface of the concrete look like anything but concrete. They can also add color to the concrete to give it the color of the native stone they are mimicking. It is a nice clean look, the downside is the cost. It is NOT cheap to have pressed concrete installed.

Paver's are cheaper per square foot and give you the ability to change some out if they become damaged...can't do that with stamped concrete.
