The process of imprinting patterns into fresh concrete, known as concrete stamping, makes it possible to create a high-end look similar to brick or stone at a lower cost using concrete stamp mats. Also sometimes known as imprinted or textured concrete, stamped concrete can replicate a variety of different textures, including tile, flagstone, brick, slate, and even wood. Such designs are appropriate for an array of projects, such as entries, driveways, pool decks, patios, courtyards, and more. The key to achieving the desired designs is using quality concrete stamp mats.
When faced with the decision of buying or renting concrete stamp mats, contractors will often find that renting mats makes far more sense than buying them outright. This can be a particularly beneficial approach if you only need to use a stamp one time for a single project. Renting concrete stamp mats presents the opportunity to rent more stamps and perform a better job than trying to skimp on a project by only using two or three stamps when you really need a dozen to complete the job.
If you are just starting a new business, you may find that renting concrete stamp mats is also better for your bottom line than purchasing mats. Likewise, if you are attempting a new design, renting stamp mats gives you far more flexibility to be creative with your design than if you were to purchase the mats. This can be particularly true if you are not sure yet whether you will use the mats again in the future. By renting, you can try out a design to see whether you like it. If you are not pleased with the outcome, you do not have to be worried about being tied down to an investment in the mat.
