Colored, Stamped and Impressed Concrete in Kansas City

Stamped concrete in Kansas City is becoming more and more popular. What the consumer of stamped concrete needs to know is that this means more contractors are trying to get into the field of stamped concrete. I am constantly reminded by seeing things in the market that…YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. Concrete is such a final product. If an inexperienced contactor is hired your patio, pool deck, or whatever could end up not as desirable as you would have hoped. I see this all the time…..contractor Fred did a patio. Fred messed up the patio. Fred was paid for the patio. Fred doesn’t return phone calls and is never seen again. Homeowner calls Chad to help solve the problem of a bad stamped job. Chad has no solutions other than tearout and replace (90% of the time).

Homeowners….let me tell you something to help save you time and money…if someone bids your stamped patio for under $10 per square foot (it seems we are usually $12) they probably don’t know what they are doing. If you can live with poor workmanship fine….just remember tearout and do it again is how you fix it.

  1. I completely agree with your article. We are based in Houston, TX and are getting calls to fix stamped concrete jobs were the homeowners only paid as little as $7 a square foot sometimes. As stated .. you get what you pay for!
