Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I have decided to have the experts at Decorative Concrete Systems of Virginia install some decorative stamped concrete. How long does it usually take?
A: Weather permitting, 3-7 days, depending on the size of the job. You'll be enjoying your new decorative concrete in no time!
Q: May I see some examples first?
A: Yes, we can arrange an appointment with a design consultant to view patterns and samples. There are many exciting designs and color combinations, so you are sure to find exactly what you're looking for. Why not give us a call today?
Q: I would love to complete that big project, but I'm not sure I can afford to do it all at once. What can I do?
A: Decorative concrete is surprisingly affordable. Best of all, every project can be done in stages. It is not a problem to pick up a pattern from one area and connect up to another area of your project.
Q: Will decorative concrete last as long and as well as regular concrete?
A: Our product is 4-6" thick, 3500-4000 psi concrete with fiberglass reinforcement. We match or exceed the normal requirements for a strong finish that withstands years of normal use.
Q: Do I have to wait until spring to begin work?
A: We can pour concrete until the temperature drops below 35° F. We do have mild winters! In the meantime, decorative concrete lends itself to many indoor projects such as floors.
Q: What kind of maintenance will my new decorative concrete require?
A: We use a UV protective sealant when we finish the job so maintenance is a snap. Just contact us once every 1-2 years (depending on traffic, etc.) for resealing.
