Stamped Overlay vs. Concrete Stamping for Concrete Pool Decks
Concrete stamping has been practiced in the decorative concrete industry for over 50 years. Traditional stamped concrete is different from its innovative counterpart: stamped overlay. Here’s a contrast and comparison for telling each one apart:
Stamped Concrete/Concrete Stamping – The traditional method is done by removing existing concrete slabs on the pool deck. This is prior to pouring a new mix of concrete that will then be embossed with a pattern. This method does not involve a substrate for the patterned concrete to adhere to. In summary, it is simply stamping freshly poured concrete with a patterned mat.
Stamped/Patterned/Textured Overlay – The main difference between the two is that stamped overlays are applied on existing concrete pool decks. The concrete slab is used as a substrate where a modified polymer overlay is applied and then embossed with a pattern. It is ideal for updating worn-out pool decks without having to remove the entire deck. This also does not affect the structural integrity of the pool area.
Why are commercial pool deck stamps ideal?
- Time-saving – Time is money. When it comes to improvement projects, overlays are the option for when you don’t want to cut down too much time on operating hours.
- Practical – Patterned overlays are a practical alternative to pavers and stamped concrete. You get a fully customizable pool deck option that’s time-saving and low cost. No need for extra manpower.
- Safe for the pool area – Removing the entire pool deck can have adverse effects on the pool area itself. Applying an overlay over the existing pool deck does not compromise the pool area’s structural integrity.
- Cost-effective – You can enjoy the benefits of stamped concrete for only a fraction of the price.
- Low maintenance – Stamped concrete overlays are long lasting without having to be constantly cared for. A biannual pool deck resealing is all it takes to keep it in good condition.
- Versatile in aesthetics – When coming up with a design for a stamped pool deck, the options are limitless.
