Design in harmony with the environment
The use of stamped concrete is relatively new in landscaping and has gained gaining in popularity over recent years.
This type of concrete is available in a multitude of patterns and colours.
It lasts virtually forever because it is solid and timeless. An exterior design using stamped concrete can increase the value of your property and, at the same time, create a living space that is easy to maintain and enjoy.
Stamped concrete can be used almost anywhere – to enhance your poolside, walkway, balcony, driveway, steps or patio. Versatility is just one of its many advantages.
A PROJECT OVERVIEW
Pouring and stamping concrete
First, we pour a concrete slab of a thickness of 4 to 6 inches. Then, we stamp it with rubber molds before concrete is completely dried. The material resists fire, insects, rot and mold. Unsurprisingly, it is used to imitate other materials such as wood, stone or paving stones. Beyond all these qualities, concrete becomes more resistant through time, which make it stand out from any other kind of available material.
« He’s the best! Super professional, qualified employees, super caring and meticulous, unique stamping patterns, high quality concrete, sustainable. Any other company is as good as they are. »

Our excavation process makes concrete sustainable: it resists the freeze-thaw cycle.
Once stamping is done, we apply a sealer. According to usage, you can re-apply sealer every 3 to 5 years.
It’s better to pour sand rather than salt or calcium in the winter, which can damage the concrete’s surface.
If you want to clean it, it’s easy, just rinse it.
We use concrete that resists bad weather. We work with partners who optimize R&D to create the most weather resistant material. For those who might wonder, we use a 32 MPA concrete.
