Stamped Concrete – Rock Salt Driveway
with a birds eye view! I’m not able to give you these looks on every job. But, with a little more time we will be posting a video of the installation. For now hopefully this photo gives you the whole picture of what this stamped concrete driveway looks like You can see the lay out, the texture and the saw cuts.
Rock Salt Driveway
I have written about the Rock Salt Driveway finish recently. While its still fresh on my mind I wanted to tell you a little more about it. The rock salt texture is an old fashion look which works good with new housing or old. It is a concrete finish that transcends time. The difference between the old way and new way is we don’t have to actually spread the rock salt. The rock salt texture has been mimicked into a stamp!
Saw Cut the Concrete
When we saw cut the concrete on a texture job we add a pattern. In this concrete driveway we sectioned off the saw cuts into 4 foot squares. Every third cut is deep and also acts as a control cut. These cuts are deep enough to force the concrete to crack. The intermediate cuts on this driveway in some area have also allowed the concrete to crack. That’s the magic of decorative saw cuts. The cuts give you a design and help minimize random cracking.
Brushed borders or any border for that matter add a little zing to any project. A textured border would look good here too. Simple is good in some cases and it really worked well here. Let us help you with your project. Stamped Concrete architecturally is a very good way to enhance your property.
