Decorative Concrete Market – Outline
Decorative concrete is the use of concrete as not simply a utilitarian medium for construction but as an aesthetic enhancement to a structure, while still serving its function as an integral part of the building itself such as floors, walls, driveways, and patios.
The transformation of concrete into decorative concrete is achieved through the use of a variety of materials that may be applied during the pouring process or after the concrete is cured, these materials and/or systems include but are not limited to stamped concrete, acid staining, decorative overlays, polished concrete, concrete countertops, vertical overlays and more.
At one time, decorative concrete came in only a few finishes—colored concrete, acid-etch stained, and stamped patterns. Today, there’s an almost infinite number of finishes available for horizontal and vertical surfaces—stamped, textured, integral and dust-on, colored, acid etch, dye (water and solvent), stampable overlays, self-level overlays, micro-toppings, stencil, engraved, form liners, diamond polished, sandblast, exposed aggregate, and coatings (epoxy, urethane, and acrylic). Finishes can also be combined with other finishes.
The possibilities are limited only by creativity of the designer and concrete contractor, yet it’s that very creativity that makes using decorative concrete so attractive. The problem is that concrete is very sensitive to a wide range of variables that can negatively impact the outcome.
