Choose a professional to install your pattern imprinted concrete driveway
The first decision you will need to make when installing your pattern imprinted concrete driveway is which company you are going to use to install it. This is the most important step, as employing someone who is not fully competent or a general builder can end up with a poor quality pattern imprinted concrete driveway and cost you thousands in repairs.
Decorative Concrete Specialists are printed concrete specialists and will provide you with the highest quality pattern imprinted concrete driveway that will last a lifetime, with little or no maintenance.
What kind of pattern do you want on your driveway?
The next decision you will need to make when installing your pattern imprinted concrete driveway is the kind of pattern (or “imprint”) you would like. There are two types of pattern that can be used – a textured mat pattern and a metal mat pattern.
A textured mat creates a shallow imprint that is more subtle than a metal mat imprint and adds a more natural feel to the driveway.
A metal mat creates a bold imprint that is a lot more visible than a textured imprint and gives more aesthetics to the driveway
Choosing between these mats is up to you and how you would like your driveway to look. There aren’t really any advantages of having one over the other.
Choosing a design for your pattern imprinted concrete driveway
There are many designs for pattern imprinted concrete driveways and we will give you a wide range of options to choose from. You can have straight, structured lines which add a respectable look to the property as a whole or alternatively you can have a crazy design that adds a fun, unique vibe to the property. Or there are many designs somewhere in between that add a respectable amount of uniqueness and structure to the property.
