WHAT DOES STAMPED CONCRETE COST?
Stamped concrete can be expensive depending on the costs for materials and labor in your local market and the complexity of the job, but the old adage, "you get what you pay for," really holds true. With stamped concrete, you’ll get a surface that lasts longer and requires less maintenance than most other materials, which can add up to big savings over its lifetime. You’ll also add curb appeal and aesthetic value to your home, allowing you to maximize the return on your investment. Basic stamped designs with one color and pattern run $8 to $12 per square foot, mid-range jobs with borders or contrasting patterns can be $12 to $18 per square foot, and high-end custom projects $18 or more per square foot.
