The Beauty of Decorative Concrete

Concrete is functional, but did you know it can also be beautiful too? Decorative concrete sidewalks are becoming more and more popular these days as more homeowners realize just how much curb appeal these sidewalks can add. A company like Wohlwend Concrete can install concrete sidewalks at your St. Paul home, and we can jazz them up if you want us to. Here are a few ways we can make your concrete sidewalks as lovely as they are practical.

Stamped concrete is a great way to add some beauty to your concrete sidewalks. They can be stamped so they resemble bricks or wood, or they can be stamped with a custom design. Your sidewalks can reflect your own unique personality and they can match the exterior of your home. They are far more interesting to look at than plain concrete, and they can really give your house that added “wow” factor that can set it apart from every other home on the block.

Concrete sidewalks can also be chemically acid stained. This is when water, hydrochloric acid and acid-soluble metallic salts are combined and then applied to the concrete. The mixture reacts with the hydrated lime that is already in the concrete and becomes a permanent part of the concrete. There are also water-based stains that can be used that come in a wide variety of colors. This is a great way to get the exact look and feel you want for your new decorative concrete sidewalks at your home.

These are just a few examples of the type of decorative concrete sidewalks you can have installed at your home.
