Concrete Sidewalks, Nampa ID
Concrete is not a new building material. Even though concrete was first used around 6500 BC by the Nabataea traders or Bedouins, Romans were the first to successfully implement concrete in the majority of their construction by 200 BC. They used a mixture of volcanic ash, lime, and seawater to form the mix.
Since then, concrete has come a long way and is still one of the main construction materials used today because it’s easy to make, durable when cured, and affordable.
Skyview Concrete can introduce you to the vast world of new concrete techniques including staining and stamping in order to create one-of-a-kind concrete sidewalks for your home.
Since concrete is an affordable material Skyview Concrete can keep your concrete sidewalks cost low while providing you with a completely beautiful walkway for your home.
Concrete Sidewalks Staining
One option we have for turning a traditional concrete sidewalk visually interesting is staining it. Acid staining concrete is way better than painted concrete. Painted concrete will flake off after a few years due to weather damage and normal wear and tear. Stain on the other hand, seeps just deep enough into the concrete to create a marbled appearance. We can also stain your existing concrete sidewalk on your property.
Concrete Sidewalks Stamping
This technique is becoming one of our favorite methods for adding a unique look to new sidewalks for Nampa. This technique does require a little more expertise. We have to wait until the concrete has cured to a certain point before we can begin pressing the polyurethane stamps into the concrete. With a steady hand, we press precisely the correct depth to recreate the look of natural stone or individual concrete pavers.
Once we have poured your one-of-a-kind concrete sidewalk, we offer the option of sealing it to provide maximum protection. We highly recommend it but it is not required. When you get your free quote one of our experts can explain the main benefits of sealing your concrete walkway and then you can decide if you would like to move forward with that option.
