A footpath can be constructed from rough, pre-cast concrete slabs but these generally are a little dull. A more interesting design can be crafted using molded concrete, with any number of patterns or shapes. Stepping stones are an interesting alternative to the traditional path. When made from uneven stone, a good and usable result can be hard to achieve. Using molded concrete stones instead provides a reliable result that can be stained to look like natural stone, whilst still allowing for an even and walkable finish.
Decorative Concrete Coating Techniques - Stamped Concrete: Made of fiberglass or steel, stamped concrete uses negative patterns to mark a shape or form onto wet concrete. Templates are designed in such a way to create any kind of pattern like brick, tiles, stone, wood, and flagstone. Colors are made in such a way that can easily mix with the concrete. These colors are mixed with the concrete. This technique is used to etch large and complex patterns to enhance the landscape architecture.
I called Brian the certified installer for the Cerlon product and showed him the problem. We decided that we could repair any of the aprons in the project that needed to be repaired using Cerlon. The aprons are 18” wide by the length of the door. We snapped a line half the width of the garage door thickness. We then installed a diamond masonry cutting blade on a skilsaw and cut a ¾” deep cut along the chalk line. The next thing we did is every 3 inches we scored the concrete the length of the door ¾” deep.
