Decorative Concrete Gallery
We have 24 different stencil patterns. The main difference between stenciled and stamped concrete is that with stenciled concrete the grout or joint is a different color than the brick, tile or rock sections. These stencil patterns can be used with new concrete and when resurfacing existing concrete. Cost of stenciled concrete is from $8.50 to $12.00 per sf. These prices are just on average.
Stained concrete is one of the newer flooring methods. Ideal for either commercial or residential use, this method allows for rich, luxurious color and is a great addition to any style of architecture. We use all types of stain - water based, acid based and dyes. What determines the type of stain we use depends on the look you want, the condition of you concrete, and/or the job circumstances. Concrete of any age can be stained, and it is a very nice look for both indoor and outdoor concrete. Customers can also choose to have their concrete "engraved" in a flagstone, brick, or other pattern. Costs for stained concrete range from $3.00 per sf to $10.00 per sf for logos and smaller areas. WARNING: DO NOT let anyone stain your exterior concrete with dyes, as they are not UV stable.
Stamped concrete - Also known as "imprinted concrete", this product has been around for decades. The benefits of stamped and stenciled concrete over actual stone or pavers are lower costs and the added strength of the concrete from being reinforced with re-bar, fibermesh or welded wire mesh. At TODDROSE decorative concrete, Inc., we prefer to reinforce concrete with re-bar vs. the other methods, as the quality is superior over wiremesh or fibermesh. Stamped concrete patterns can be used with new concrete or over existing concrete by utilizing a polymer concrete overlay. Polymer concrete can be applied over existing concrete at depths of 1/8 to 3/4 of an inch. Stamped concrete runs close to the stenciled concrete prices, and ranges from $8.50 to $12.00 per sf.
These colors are for stamped/imprinted concrete and stamped overlays, not stained concrete. When picking out colors for stamped/imprinted concrete, pick 2 or 3 colors: the first will be the base, while the second will be the highlights. This technique is known as "antiquing". Usually, the base color is lighter and the antiquing color is darker so that it will stand out better.
Stenciled concrete is quickly becoming the fasting growing decorative concrete application that we can install. There are currently 24 patterns and 16 borders and other decorative patterns to choose from. The major difference between stamped and stenciled concrete is that stenciled concrete often looks more realistic because of its different colored grout lines. Stenciled concrete also has a much flatter plane, which allows for easier snow removal and patio furniture placement, and is less slippery. Many customers choose to have one pattern in the field of their driveway or concrete patio and then have a different pattern for bands or borders. Stenciled concrete can also be stained. We only use quality stencils from Decorative Concrete Impressions out of Webb City, Missouri.
We are so proud and grateful to have been a part of Lincoln, Nebraska's Antelope Valley Project. Antelope Valley has changed the landscape of Lincoln, Nebraska forever. TODDROSE decorative concrete, Inc. helped stain and sandblast concrete, install polymer concrete resurfacing overlays on some of the bridges, and stamp concrete for the Antelope Valley Project in Lincoln, NE.
"Exposed"---this is our trademarked name for exposed aggregate concrete. Exposed aggregate concrete is one of the oldest forms of decorative concrete. Exposed aggregate has been around since the 50's. The advances in technology, especially chemistry have allowed TODDROSE decorative concrete, inc. to "control" the amont of aggregate(rock) that is exposed(visible) in the concrete. Because of this chemistry different amounts of exposure of the concrete allows for bands and borders being different than the fields of concrete in a driveway, patio, or courtyard. We are definately seeing an increase in Exposed Aggregate Concrete amongst architects and interior designers here in Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska.
