Decorative & Stamped Concrete Appleton WI
Decorative concrete is a great way to add beauty and value to your home or business. There are many different ways to use decorative concrete, and the possibilities are limited only by your imagination. Decorative concrete patios, sidewalks, driveways, pool decks, and other structures are becoming more popular every day. The final result is a one-of-a-kind creation that will enhance the beauty of your property for years to come.
Appleton Concrete Design can add color to your concrete in a number of ways. We can use integral color, which is mixed into the concrete before it is poured. We can also use color hardeners, which are applied to the surface of the concrete after it has been poured. And we can use stains, which are applied to the surface of the concrete to create a unique look. Depending on the look you are going for, we will work with you to choose the best coloring method. The two main types of color we use are acid stain and acrylic stain.
Acid-based stains work by reacting with the minerals in the concrete to create a unique, variegated color. The colors produced by acid-based stains are often described as earthy, and they can range from light tans to rich browns. Acid-based stains are permanent, and they will not fade over time.
Acrylic stains are water-based, so they are safe and easy to use. They come in a wide variety of colors, including bright and vibrant hues that are not possible with acid-based stains. They can be used to create a number of looks, including semi-transparent stains that allow the natural color and texture of the concrete to show through, or opaque stains that will completely cover the concrete.
Both of these types of colors can be combined with other decorative techniques, such as stamped concrete, to create a truly unique look.
It’s important to note that both of these techniques will not conceal any issues with your concrete. Because stains penetrate into your concrete and do not sit on top, any patches or flaws will still be visible after staining. That’s why it’s important to have your concrete repaired and resurfaced before adding any type of color.

Appleton Concrete Design can create a stamped concrete patio, sidewalk, driveway, or pool deck that will enhance the beauty of your home or business.

Stamped concrete is done by adding a textured surface to your concrete. This is done by using a mold or stamp that is pressed into the wet concrete to create the desired look. The final result is a beautiful, one-of-a-kind creation that will enhance the beauty of your property for years to come.
There are many benefits to stamped concrete. It is durable and long-lasting, and it is easy to maintain. It is also less expensive than most other types of concrete. And because it can be colored and textured to look like stone, brick, or wood, it is a great way to add a bit of flair to your home or business.
