Why decorative concrete?
What are the advantages of stenciled concrete?
Stenciled concrete gives the appearance of real stone, tile or brick without the higher installation costs and maintenance, available in a wide range of colors and patterns to choose from, with more options for the contractor and homeowner.
Stenciled concrete leaves a flat and even surface better suited for pool decks, walkways, driveways and interior floors.
How many patterns are available?
- 24 stencil field patterns
- 7 stencil headers
- 8 stencil accent pieces
DCI manufactures the industry's largest selection of patterns available, available in paper for cast-in-place Adhesive Stencil for overlayment applications.
Who can I call with questions or installation problems?
Call your regional DCI Distributor, or call DCI direct at 866-332-7383.
Will the color fade?
When using a quality color hardener, following the manufacturer's specifications, plus a quality UV protectant sealer, it should not fade. For maximum durability, the sealer should be maintained as recommended by the manufacturer.
Will stenciled concrete be harmed under freeze/thaw conditions?
No, provided you maintain the sealer. A good sealer is the key to protecting your concrete from ice and deicing salts.
What are the advantages of stenciled concrete versus brick, stone, tile, and so on?
Stenciled concrete can be reinforced to serve any structural need or purpose. Stenciled concrete offers the option of multi-colored, patterned, and textured designs to compliment the existing structure. It is a lower cost, lower maintenance product.
What are the advantages of stenciled versus stamped concrete?
Stenciled concrete produces a more realistic appearance, comparable to brick, stone, tile, etc. Stenciled concrete produces a surface that contains the texture of brick, stone, or tile, and includes a realistic grout line, all in a one-step application.
Are DCI products for the do-it-yourself installer?
DCI products are not recommended as a do-it-yourself project. The effects created with a properly applied stencil and the appropriate colors are varied and beautiful. However, without extensive knowledge of concrete and how it reacts to our products, the environment, the concrete mix, the lay of the land, and various other factors, you are often only one step away from a very expensive mistake. DCI cares about your project, and we would never want to discourage you from having a beautiful driveway, patio, or other area done with decorative concrete. In fact, if you would like to contact us by email or by telephone 866-332-7383, we will be happy to search for a concrete contractor in your area that uses our products.
Acid stain can transform lifeless concrete into a luxurious floor resembling marble or glazed stone.
