What Is Stamped Concrete and How Much Does it Cost?

Jan. 26th 2016

Most driveways don’t attract a lot of attention, unless they’re brand new and have that fresh concrete look. For the most part, driveways are gray and rather plain looking. However, if you’ve ever seen an upscale driveway or patio that includes different colors or extravagant designs then you know how good a stamped driveway can look. A stamped driveway can also add a lot of value to your home, because not only is it worth more, but it can also add a lot of curb appeal.

While they still aren’t the norm for most homes and office buildings, stamped driveways are growing in popularity because they offer homeowners another way to add some individuality to their home, which can help them stand out from the crowd. So what is stamped concrete? Perhaps you’ve heard of it but aren’t quite sure how it works and what it costs.

Stamped concrete is concrete that has a pattern or texture that can resemble just about anything, from stones to tiles and even wood or other intricate designs. Stamped concrete does cost more than normal concrete but it can add a lot of personality to your driveway and to your home. The price will vary depending on the exact design and pattern as well as how much concrete you end up pouring. Basic stamps are less expensive than more elaborate ones.

How To Hire the Right Commercial Contractor in Vancouver WA

Jan. 12th 2016

Have you ever had some work done on your home that involved a commercial construction contractor? How did it go? Unfortunately, the Internet is crawling with horror stories of lousy commercial contractors and the terrible things they have done. The fact is there are many different general construction contractors in the Vancouver and Portland areas and they are not all created the same.

There are a lot of good, honest and reliable general contractors in the area, but unfortunately, most of the time people only hear about the bad ones. So how do you know you’re getting one of the good ones and not ending up with one of those shady contractors that you wish you had never allowed into your home? You have to do your research.

Fortunately, the Internet is also full of review pages that allow you to find information about almost every company in business today. If you can’t find anything about the general contractor you’re considering, then ask for references from previous customers. If the contractor isn’t willing to give any names then you probably want to look for another option. You can also ask friends and family members about their experiences with any contractors they’ve worked with.

Once you’ve narrowed down your search you should then ask a lot of questions of those finalists. Also, seek out more than one bid and don’t just go with the cheapest price. You get what you pay for, so make sure your bid is accurate and complete before you just take the cheapest one.

You can find a good general construction contractor, but you have to do your homework first. Please contact Direct Finish Construction in Vancouver. We would be glad to offer references and a thorough bid without hidden fees. Just click here or give us a call at 360-690-5616.
