There have been many technological advancements pertaining to concrete over the past decade. Instead of being used only for construction, concrete can now be found everywhere. From concrete counter tops, concrete bath tubs, to concrete everything. With the increase in popularity of concrete also came a demand for making the concrete more aesthetically pleasing. This gave way to a completely new market of concrete stains, dyes, and overlays. The options are very expansive. Acid base staining for example is not a dying or color based system. It is a chemical reaction that physically changes the concrete. Who knew there was so much science in landscaping? Concrete is a very strong material but is does have it’s downsides. Due to concrete slabs usually covering a large area, they are more subject to cracking or shifting. In the red river valley we have fairly soft soil which can move especially during freeze and thawing cycles. This puts a lot or pressure on large concrete slabs. That doesn’t mean they will crack, just that it is possible. If stained concrete is a must have on your landscaping wish list be sure to let us know.
