Can you stamp existing concrete?

Yes, stamping existing concrete is very common. When you work with an experienced contractor such as SUNDEK of Austin, we can apply stamped concrete over your existing concrete. When our clients ask, Do I have to tear out my existing concrete? We're always very happy to tell them that they don't have to! It's a relief to most clients because it means they can avoid the hassle and mess of a demolition and still get a surface that looks brand new. In fact, in addition to concrete, we can apply coatings on top of stucco, drywall, brick, and other surfaces.

How to stamp existing concrete

After applying a coating to your existing surface, we use a concrete stamp to imprint the pattern. We will also apply the requested colors and aggregates. You can have stamped concrete applied to virtually any concrete surface, including water features, fire pits, walls, and built-in seating.

What patterns and colors are available?

If you’re looking for ways to bolster the look of your home without breaking the bank, stamped overlays are an excellent choice. Stamped concrete design options are endless.

Do you love the look of pricey slate, brick or flagstone? Or perhaps stone tile, natural stone, or wood planking? With overlays, you can get the look of these expensive products at a fraction of the cost. Yes—an experienced contractor such as SUNDEK of Austin can install stamped concrete that looks like wood!

At SUNDEK we have pre-fabricated templates, custom stamp mats, and many color choices (learn more about our stained concrete services). You can also create a custom stamp with a pattern and texture you love. We can even create custom freeform designs.

What if my existing surface is damaged?

Even if your surface is cracked, flaking, or spalling, be sure to contact us, because concrete repair is one of our specialties. We will assess the existing damage. As long as the surface is viable, we will repair it then apply a coating on top to make your surface look brand new.

If you already have stamped concrete that’s damaged, we can fix it.

What is maintenance like for a stamped concrete overlay?

The most important step you can take to maintain your stamped concrete surface is to have it sealed after it’s installed. At SUNDEK of Austin, we have high-quality sealers that will protect your surface from the elements. Your SUNDEK installer will advise you on how often to reseal the surface. (Read more about why sealers are so important.)
