Imprinted concrete is possibly the easiest surface to maintain when compared to the alternatives available. Once it has been laid the colour is applied and the pattern is impressed with it then being sealed providing a water tight top coat. Your driveway or patio can then be cleaned easy, using a hose or jet wash, and if needs be after several years it can be easily resealed to make it look like new. Please see our section on maintenance.

Imprinted concrete really is a paving surface that you can make your own and create a unique design. The collections and features that can be created include stone, cobbles, bricks and also wood, which are all sealed and coloured to your exact specification. You can also create a centre feature in the pattern imprinted concrete such as a circle and then have the normal pattern surrounding this.
An average installation will take 6 to 10 days, weather permitting, depending on the amount of groundwork that needs to be undertaken and the size of the project.
As with most areas of the Building Industry the weather does affect us to a certain degree. If rain is forecast we will not pour concrete. Neither can we seal a driveway in the wet. We have to monitor the weather forecasts and carry out the pouring and sealing of concrete in between the rain! We can’t pour concrete when the temperature dips to a certain level either, as concrete can become frost damaged. The climate has changed considerably over the years and fortunately we don’t lose many days due to frost. We carry on installing all the year round but are obviously slowed down a little during bad weather i.e. in the winter months.
Please contact us using one of the available methods and we will endeavour to contact you to arrange a time and day to visit and quote free of charge.

We do not recommend the use of salt as this has been know to damage the surface, however we do recommend the use of envirothaw. Please ask us for more details.
We do use a non slip additive (maxigrip) when sealing but this does not prevent the collection of ice so care should be taken as in all case
