Stencilled Concrete

Stencil Pattern Concrete combines the unbeatable durability of concrete with the distinctive architectural appeal of traditional brick, cobblestone pavers or tiles.

A high quality disposable stencil is used for creating different decorative effects. Stenciled concrete is very similar to stamped concrete. The important difference is that this process utilizes disposable paper stencils to impart the pattern instead of rubber mats. Stencils for concrete come in a wide array of patterns. Because the stencils mask off the underlying surface, they leave behind realistic "mortar joints" the colour of the gray concrete base.

By applying a dry-shake color hardener to the exposed concrete before stencil removal, you'll get the appearance of individual stones, tiles or bricks that have been mortared together. After the concrete sets sufficiently, the crack control joints are saw cut, and the slab is cleaned and sealed.

Re-surfacing your existing concrete driveway is an effective way to totally change its look and feel. Stencil Pattern Concrete allows you to customise your look by creating eye catching special designs, company logos or monograms. Choose from a wide selection of contemporary colours and patterns that are available, allowing you to create the look you want and rejuvenate your existing concrete.

Decorative Concrete's stencils are designed to incorporate superior performance and durability to withstand the harsh Australian conditions. Colours and patterns can be seen through both CP Stampcrete and DT Fauxtex Range. 

Design Tip: Emphasising the edging in your design allows you to add another colour dimension to your project. It allows you to blend the colours of your external facade beautifully with your surrounding environment. Add a Colour Thru colour in your concrete and place your stencil pattern on top to create a monotone colour look.
