Having a patio in your backyard or outdoor living space is a great way to get your friends and family to gather and enjoy the outdoors and each other’s company. Amarillo Concrete are the concrete patio pros and can have the concrete marked out and poured within a few hours. The concrete itself will need some time to set and cure, then we can create interesting designs that make your patio unique to you. The way your patio looks can really set the tone for how your whole living space is viewed and enjoyed.
You may or may not be aware of the many colors that available to you when it comes to creating a custom patio. Painting concrete can be done, but that is not exactly what we mean by colored concrete. Colored concrete is created by actually mixing the color into the mix for the concrete so that when the concrete is poured, it is already in that certain color. This is a great way to add a pop of color to your space, or even create an interesting dynamic in your space. Colors are a great way to communicate your personal sense of style and the energy that you would like to convey in the atmosphere of your patio space.
Like colors, stains are also an interesting way to add color to your outdoor living space. Stains are a little different from colors when it comes to concrete and the process is very different as well. While colors are typically added directly to the concrete mix, a stain is applied to the surface of the concrete after it has been poured. Before you apply a stain, it is important that your patio slab is free from dirt and debris and any stains are washed away. The stain can then be added to the surface and even layered to create an interesting color scheme that is perfectly unique to your style and patio.
Engraving is another way of adding decoration to your patio after it has been poured. Engraving is a cool way to add designs and textures into your concrete. Amarillo Concrete has several options for engraving patterns, but if there is something that you desire for your patio then let us know. We are more than happy to customize your engraving in order to make a unique and interesting pattern just for you.
Pavers are yet another way to dress up some drab concrete. Pavers are interesting in that they typically interlock to create a certain pattern on the ground beneath your feet. The pavers come in all sorts of colors and are usually used instead of a slab instead of over top of one.
