As a concrete contractor, we often get asked about stamped concrete. This type of surface is very popular for its ability to imitate anything other than concrete. It’s highly customizable and can be styled to make it look like bricks, flagstone, tiles, cobblestones, and even wood.
It's so realistic a lot of people won't know it's stamped concrete.
A lot of people choose concrete stamped with expensive-looking stones. These designs breathe elegance into an otherwise plain surface without the disadvantages and cost of those mimicked stones. It’s easy to maintain and won’t become tripping hazards or need replacements as it ages.
Stamped concrete is also installed easier and faster than pavers, tiles, or wood. And it lasts as long as other concrete materials do—about 25 years or so.
That is unless it wasn’t installed right.
Concrete stamped incorrectly may have several defects that look messy. These are hard to correct once installed, that’s why it’s important to hire a concrete pro.
Rochester Hills Concrete installs stamped concrete precisely for durability and higher resistance to cracking. We also make sure that surfaces are level, colors are even, and the concrete is smoothed out properly.
With Rochester Hills Concrete, stamped concrete is no stress at all. You only have to have it sealed every 3 years or so to keep it glossy.
Send us an inquiry so we can discuss if stamped concrete is the right solution to your needs.
With the increase of different finishing techniques on concrete comes more ways to use it. One such practical use is the concrete countertop.
A concrete countertop won’t rot, rust, or catch fire. It won’t chip, scratch, or harbor germs. It can be colorized, stained, stamped, and sealed with just about any design you want. It can be made to look like marble, natural stone, granite, or wood. It can also be embedded with stones, glass, shells, or tiles.
Simply put, the concrete countertop provides both beauty and functionality.
Maintaining concrete countertops is easy. Because concrete is porous, it must be sealed (in this case) with a food-safe concrete sealer. This is done every several years to maintain the integrity of the countertop.
They’re not the fastest to be built, though. Concrete takes time to be cast and cured, and the project might take a couple of weeks to finish at least.
Because it’s handcrafted, it’s a little on the pricier side, too. Is it worth the investment? Concrete countertop owners seem to think so.
They mainly like the rustic feel and the organic color that develops over time. The fact that it ages beautifully is a testimony of how much they enjoy using their concrete countertop over the years.
One of the features of a home that families enjoy the best is the outdoor patio.
It’s a great place to relax, spend time together, or have a barbecue.
It’s the best spot to entertain guests especially if you have a smaller living room.
It’s no wonder that patios are one of the most desired features homebuyers want. And it gives even more value to your property if they’re built in concrete.
Concrete gives you stability and versatility that no other material offers. It’s weatherproof, clean, and can be styled any way you like.
Let loose your creativity and build your outdoor patio with the help of Rochester Hills Concrete. We offer you so many possibilities with different colors, patterns, textures, and shape options to suit your style.
Many people also like additional features with their patios to make them more personal and pleasing. Some of these are built-in seating, fire pits, mini-fountains or nano ponds, and other hardscapes—all of which Rochester Hills Concrete can build as an addition to your concrete patio.
Do you live in a townhouse or have a limited outdoor area? Ask us about small space solutions and we’ll show you that you can still get a smart and functional concrete patio.
Acid Stain & Wash Concrete
Acid staining is a permanent way to color and design concrete surfaces. Once set, those patterns and colors never fade away or peel.
The process involves applying a hydrochloric solution to the surface of the concrete and washing it away with a neutralizer after a set time. Depending on the type of stain used, the effect may look like marble, leather, granite, metal, or even wood.
The only drawback though, is that acid stains are limited to earthy colors such as tans, browns, and blue greens. We advise that you view samples first and see if these tones fit your theme.
Acid stain and wash may be applied on indoor or outdoor concrete. They are popular for walkways, walls, fireplaces, and indoor flooring.
Acid stain concrete countertops are particularly becoming more commonplace in homes. They are premium materials and therefore add value to any property. They are stronger, more elegant, and more fireproof than laminate.
Because concrete can be shaped any way you want, they are more practical for use in odd-shaped counters or those that need cut-outs. With acid stain concrete countertops, you might not even need a basin for that sink as you can easily integrate that shape on the countertop.
That’s just one idea. With acid-stained concrete, you have so many design possibilities.
Having a clean and beautiful driveway boosts your home’s curb appeal. It’s one of the first things that guests see when they arrive at your house. It creates an impression in their minds even before they enter your home.
Is it the right impression, though, or not?
It’s a good thing then, that there are many beautiful options to choose from when it comes to concrete driveway designs.
Why concrete? Because let’s face it, your car deserves only the most durable material for a driveway.
Besides, concrete prevents weed growth, doesn’t absorb dirt or oil, is easy to clean, and costs a lot less in the long run. Plus, concrete driveways don’t absorb heat as much as asphalt does.
But let’s get back to the options. Did you know that aside from the classic gray, there are many colors and finishes to choose from for your concrete driveway? You can follow the color motif of your building’s façade for a perfect blend, or opt for exposed aggregate that adds texture and dimension, or find a stencil pattern that mimics pavers or mosaic tiles.
Whichever you choose, you get the benefits of a durable and low-maintenance concrete driveway that you’ll enjoy for a long, long time.
And it looks stunning.
Concrete Pool Decks
There’s nothing like dipping into a pool on a hot summer day with the family. The words ‘fun’ and ‘refreshing’ come to mind. But don’t forget a very important word: ‘safe’.
Pool decks are a major part of the whole pool structure, so a safe and easy-to-maintain concrete pool deck is essential.
Poured concrete is the most common choice for pool decks. Because they’ll be wet all the time, the surface should be roughened out to avoid slips and falls. They should be free of glaze but still complete the aesthetic of your pool area.
This is why stamped concrete pool decks are getting more and more popular. They fit the safety and strength criteria while keeping the whole pool area coherently designed. Instead of glaze, a non-skid additive is added to the sealant to keep it rough.
To keep bare feet from getting scorched, it’s practical to have light-colored stamped concrete pool decks. Shades of tan remind you of a sandy beach, textured white may imitate pebbles, and hints of gray mimic slate and stone.
Other favorite concrete finishes that are great for pool decks are exposed aggregate and pavers.
If you have a design in mind, book a free consultation with us. We'll help you realize that vision.
Concrete Repair & Resurfacing
Being one of the most durable building materials around doesn’t exempt concrete from aging defects. Luckily, most concrete is repairable.
If you’ve noticed spalls, cracks, and salt damage, concrete repairs are due.
The best time to make repairs on concrete is during the tail end of summer when the season is dry but not too hot. Cold weather makes concrete set slower than usual, making it less strong. Freezing weather is even worse when the water turns to ice and expands. This translates to unsightly cracks.
On the other hand, very hot weather causes the top of the poured concrete to dry too quickly. This will make concrete weaker. Even strong winds have an impact on the speed at which concrete sets.
But if you have urgent concrete repair needs like water damage, cracks, and fractures, there is no better time than now. Have them repaired immediately by a professional who knows how to adjust the mixtures for the strongest possible outcome.
Urgent concrete repairs are needed if you have:
- Water damaged basements
- Deepening cracks (especially with rust seeping out)
- Bothersome potholes
- Exposed rebars
- Worsening structural defects
If you’re not sure a defect warrants urgent concrete repairs, have it evaluated by our experts.
Concrete will always be exposed to the elements, but Rochester Hills Concrete will always be here to make sure your buildings are strong and reliable.
Restore safety neatness with concrete leveling by Rochester Hills Concrete.
Uneven sidewalks, garage floors, driveways, and pathways are trip hazards that could endanger anyone passing through them. Sunken driveways also tend to flood during rains and ice during winter.
Old concrete slabs may settle and depress over time due to backfill sinking, poor drainage, or voids. If not repaired, sinking concrete will even get worse over time and crack. Soon, you might need to replace the slab completely. That’s a costlier scenario, not to mention the slabs won’t match.
Rochester Hills Concrete offers two methods of concrete leveling: mudjacking and poly-level. Each has its advantages, but both of these methods are effective and safe. Determining which method to use on your application depends on certain factors, including weight, longevity, and cost.
If the subgrade depression was caused by weight issues, mudjacking may do more harm than good because it’s also heavy material.
Polyurethane is lightweight, and also has the advantage in terms of longevity. The material is eco-friendly, lasts long, and will not erode with water.
However, polyurethane costs more than twice as mudjacking but is still about a quarter of the cost of replacing the slab altogether. It’s also a more complicated process than mudjacking.

Concrete Fire Pits
Most people who have concrete patios done add more personalized elements such as concrete fire pits. This is because the concrete fire pit enhances the outdoor entertainment space with its heat and ambiance.
Because concrete is non-combustible, it makes the perfect base for your fire pit. It can also be molded into any shape you want like a bowl or a rectangle.
Your concrete fire pit can be permanently installed in one place, or we can use light concrete to make a movable variety. You just need to make sure that the place where you put it is level and is at least 10 feet away from the main house.
Lighting up the concrete fire is easy. Your options would be to use wood, charcoal, or gas, with the latter being the more popular choice.
Using firewood would require you to use paving stones and a fireproof container (such as the famous bowl). Using gas means you need to hook it up to your gas line, but it also means that the height of the flame would be controllable.
Most concrete fire pits are located on decks. It is safe because the heat from the pit doesn’t transfer to the floor of the deck.
Maintenance is easy. The harsh elements outside like heat and rains won’t deteriorate your concrete fire pit. All you need is to sweep off debris or power wash.
Light up the night and enjoy the warmth. With a concrete fire pit, dining al fresco or hosting a backyard party has never been more stylish or easy.
There are several pouring concrete steps, but the ones that concern clients the most are the preparation and curing.
Concrete pouring for your project may require earth-moving equipment and some excavation. Grass, trees, rocks, or even old slabs might need to be removed.
Don’t be surprised if we put plastic sheeting in an indoor concrete pouring job. Vapor barriers are necessary for cold weather states like ours to prevent moisture from forming underneath the concrete. They also improve energy efficiency.
For outdoor concrete pouring, proper water drainage is important. A gravel base is necessary for most soils, especially ones that don’t absorb water like clay. Be sure to inform us about what soil you have when asking for an estimate.
Curing is the time the concrete hardens to its permanent state. It involves keeping the setting concrete moist so that it gains strength as it dries. A slab that becomes too dry is prone to shrinkage, and consequently, cracking.
But don’t worry. It doesn’t take that long for the concrete to set. People can already walk on the surface of a drying slab 48 hours after it has been poured. After a week, a driveway can accommodate light vehicles. A full month after pouring, the concrete is completely done.
Concrete Retaining Walls
Concrete retaining walls are built to prevent soil erosion. Projects may be as simple as a garden build or as massive as a major structure beside a highway. Regardless, they should be built precisely and with the welfare of everyone in mind.
One crucial part of a retaining wall is the gravel drain. Without it, the soil (or sometimes snow) might compact too much and push the top of the wall, causing the structure to fail. That’s exactly what’s happening to some of those leaning walls you might be seeing when you drive around.
It might not happen right away, but why build something that will only collapse after several years?
Retaining walls should emphasize safety, and that’s why not every project needs this structure. Believe it or not, some retaining walls in some properties are not even necessary.
A knowledgeable pro can advise you on this. If a retaining wall is necessary, the expert will advise what type of materials to use to make the structure permanent.
Rochester Hills Concrete will be honest with you during every consultation, providing important insight on how a retaining wall may or may not help you. We will also consider other important factors like underground piping, the type of soil you have, and even the effect of changing weather on the wall.
One of the best ways to get shiny floors that are easy to clean and maintain is to have polished concrete. Even commercial buildings choose this option because of its durability against high foot traffic. Even with heavy appliances and furniture, well-maintained concrete floors won’t chip and would last for 50 years or so.
That’s a lot of cost savings compared to other types of flooring.
Concrete floors are also chosen by businesses for their ability to be customized. You may notice some buildings have their logos on the floor. You may even cover the entire floor with your chosen graphics.
If you or your kids have allergies, concrete floors are a great option for your home because they don’t collect dust, dust mites, and molds like carpet would. Medical experts recommend concrete flooring that doesn’t have allergy-inducing stains and seals.
If you think concrete floors are cold, you’ll be glad to know they can be heated. In-floor radiant heating is practical and cost-saving as it consumes less energy than forced-air heating. The warmth is evenly distributed through hot water tubes underneath, and you don’t get dust and particles blown in through dirty ducts.
The price of concrete floors ranges from very affordable to the upper-range depending on the design you want. In fact, basic concrete floors are the most inexpensive type of flooring. The higher-end types would feature the most luxurious stains and finishes.
Concrete paving has many applications both in residences and in parks, sidewalks, playgrounds, parking lots, and driveways. You may notice them as common flooring in private and public places in Europe.
Also known as paving stones or pavers, concrete paving allows water to seep through with its grout-less application to avoid flooding. They come in many different kinds of shapes, sizes, textures, and colors.
Over the years, interlocking pavers have become more popular in the US. It may probably be because they’re easy to repair and service. A section can be easily taken out if you need utility repairs done. Re-installation is a breeze.
Smart concrete paving designs include having two colors installed to complement surrounding areas. They can also be designed to follow shapes consistent in your home, such as arches and angles of windows and doors. Some designs feature different textures.
The best way to get a level and uniform concrete paving application is to hire a pro. Expert installation prevents concrete paving from cracking or shifting with frequent use.
Cleaning concrete paving usually involves pressure washing. Weeds that might have grown can be pulled up, and the pavers can be scrubbed gently with a stiff-bristled brush.
You may choose to have your concrete paving sealed or not. The natural patina that forms as it ages adds charm and personality as the pavers age.
