Stamped concrete provides the look of a variety of natural stone or tile for driveways, patios, pool decks, and interior floors. Patterns are stamped into flat finish concrete prior to final set with the use of rubber stamps. Color can also be added to the mix for additional accent. With natural finishes and wide array of realistic shapes to choose from, stamped concrete is the affordable choice for an upscale finish to your horizontal surfaces.

INFORMATION ON CONCRETE FINISHES
Allied Concrete specializes in a high quality computerized process that mixes a liquid color throughout the concrete. This is a 1 step process done when the load is batched and dumped in the back of the concrete mixer truck. Colored concrete can be used as an alternative to your average gray sidewalk or can be used with stamped concrete. After many years of trial and error, Allied has developed a special pallet of colored concrete that is poured and /or stamped to create beautiful walkways and floors. Colored concrete is durable, handsome and stands up over time. Colored concrete when stamped with the appropriate pattern can have the look and feel of natural stone at a fraction of the cost. Contact us for more information on how to choose the best color and stamp design for the look you are trying to achieve.
ACID STAIN CONCRETE - Interior & Exterior
Acid stain has gained popularity for both interior and exterior use. It can be applied to new or old concrete and gives a wonderful patina to floors.

The acid stain process is applied after the concrete is poured and cured for at least 28 days. The acid reacts with the calcium in the concrete to create an interesting color that may be variegated, mottled, streaked or uneven in saturation of color. The final finish can be matt or glazed for a variety of effects. This is a surface treatment that can be very pleasing and can be used on old concrete or on newly poured concrete. Since this is a stain process, each application is completely unique and individual in appearance.
