Cobble Finish – Stamped Concrete

Decorative concrete for heritage homes has always been a popular choice for driveways, pathways and patios because of its numerous benefits.

Decorative concrete paving, or stamped concrete, is essentially concrete that has been stamped or saw-cut to create a specific style and design, Decorative concrete or stamped concrete has many benefits:

  • There are various different decorative concrete designs to choose from – cobblestone, slate, sandstone, Mediterranean, handcrafted saw-cut – which makes it easier to match heritage, traditional or a classic homes
  • There is no subsidence with decorative concrete paving
  • It is low maintenance, no weeding is needed
  • It is cost effective compared to laying concrete pavers and still looks as good if not better.

For anyone who has enough garden and home to maintain, why add more maintenance to your to-do list? Wouldn’t you rather be looking after your hedges and roses? Decorative concrete paving requires very little maintenance and will look as good as it did the day it was installed for many years to come. All you need to do is an occasional reseal to make it easier to clean and to keep discolouring at a minimum.

Handcrafted Milled Saw-Cut Concrete Paving

For an alternative clean, uncluttered look our Handcrafted Milled finishes have been used very successfully around older style houses. The light taupe colour used in this Milled Handcrafted patio blends well with red brick surrounding walls.

Our handcrafted milled finishes are created by saw-cutting a concrete base into your chosen design and it provides a smooth and sleek appearance which looks like high end pavers or tiles but without the weeds and movement that can happen with paver blocks.
