Why choose stamped concrete over traditional finishes? While bricks, pavers and cobbles look great, they create a surface using many interlocking pieces which creates cracks and makes them susceptible to frost heave and movement with changes in the underlying surface. Concrete is a uniform and level surface and can also be reinforced with steel to help tie the concrete together and further strengthen it which means, your surface will look great for years to come.
The 'cracks' in stamped concrete are only impressions in the surface and not actual cracks or connections between bricks, which means you won't have unsightly weeds growing up through the bricks as with traditional pavers.
