Michigan’s Most Popular Stamped Concrete Patterns
Stamped concrete patterns are urethane liners that mimic the appearance of slate, brick, and wood grain on fresh-poured concrete. Homeowners rely on these concrete stamp designs to achieve authentic-looking textures on concrete driveways, sidewalks, entryways, patios, and pool decks.
If you’re considering starting a decorative concrete project and wondering which designs are best, you’re in the right place. In this article, we’ll explore some of our stamped concrete patterns that homeowners in Michigan liked the most in 2022.
Cantilever step liners were among our top-purchased products in 2022. These specialty liners are perfect for replicating natural wood and stone designs and work exceptionally well on entryways and patios.
They allow professionals and DIYers to achieve a projected stone edge above a step’s riser face without complex forms. At Stamped Concrete, we offer two primary cantilevered step liners: natural stone and wood.
Natural Stone Cantilevered Step Liner
Our flexible and durable cantilevered step liners allow for easy finishing of steps or slabs. They feature a five-inch textured face with either a 1.25- or 2.25-inch cantilevered top edge.
Manufactured with multi-use urethane, these 20-pound liners can be used on straight or radius applications. These products work well with 45-degree stone edge step liners, stackable cobblestone liners, and various sizes of cut stone liners.
Wood Cantilevered Liner
If you live in a climate where wood decking isn’t ideal, wood cantilever liners allow you to create solid concrete steps that look just like natural wood.
These concrete stamps need much less maintenance than actual wood, and the cantilever effect adds an extra dimension of appeal.
You should use two or more suitable concrete colors to mimic the appearance of real wood and maximize the authenticity of the final product.
No intricate forming is needed when you use these tough polymer-based urethane liners. They measure eight feet by 7.25 inches and are recommended for use with Gilpin’s Falls Bridge Plank texture concrete stamps.
In addition to cantilevered liners, our stone concrete stamp patterns remain very popular, with Ashlar slate’s timeless appearance continuing to appeal to many renovators.
Our Ashlar slate-patterned stamps mimic authentic Ashlar masonry, and when installed correctly per instructions, allow you to achieve realistic-looking results that last for many years with proper care.
Our most popular stone patterns in 2022 were the Ashlar Slate Cut, Ashlar Large Slate Cut, and Ashlar Majestic Slate Cut.
Slate: Ashlar Cut Set
The standard Ashlar Cut Set creates a classic and decorative slate texture and appearance and is well-suited for concrete renovation projects involving smaller driveways and walkways. The rectangles and squares in the pattern measure from 5.25 to 9.875 inches wide and 6.75 to 20.625 inches long. The recommended joint size is 0.125 to 0.25 inches wide and 0.625 inches deep.
The full set includes:
- 12 Rigid Interlocking 23 x 23-Inch Liners (4 Blue, 4 Red, & 4 Yellow)
- 1 Floppy Urethane Liner
- 1 Touch-Up Wheel
- 1 Textured Skin
When used properly, this kit will allow you to create the appearance of a naturally laminated slate texture split along parallel lines. It can also be hand-tooled to produce a distinct chipped and fragmented finish that effectively mimics real slate.
Plus, you can use a variety of primary and secondary colors, ranging from dark to light, to achieve your desired ambiance. Many Michigan homeowners add a gritted texture for safer, more comfortable walking.
Slate: Ashlar Large Set
The Ashlar Large Set comes with:
- 9 Rigid Interlocking Liners (3 Blue, 3 Red, & 3 Yellow)
- 1 Floppy Liner
- 1 Textured Skin
- Touch-Up Wheel
The stamped concrete patterns closely resemble those in the standard Ashlar Cut Set, the key differences being that each stamping pad measures 28 inches instead of 23, and the texture is softer.
This larger Ashlar design is well-suited for large entryways, expansive patios, swimming pool surrounds, and other sizable areas.
Slate: Majestic Ashlar Set
The Majestic Ashlar Set contains the largest concrete stamp designs. The full set includes:
- 9 Rigid Interlocking Liners (3 Black, 3 Blue, & 3 Green)
- 2 Floppy Pads
- 1 Textured Skin
- Touch-Up Wheel
This kit weighs 250 pounds, and the larger stamp designs create natural-looking results. Each of its large concrete stamps measures 35.5 inches by 35.5 inches, which speeds up production time and minimizes the need for touch-ups.
