Stamped floors

Stamped floors are made by pressing a mould onto fresh concrete to reproduce different shapes, such as rocks, stones and porphyry. Before being stamped, the floor is sprinkled with hardeners that have two basic functions:

  • They form a surface layer that increases surface resistance to abrasion;
  • They help define the chosen colour.

Stamped floors have several benefits: they can be laid quickly and inexpensively, and unlike real stone or interlocking paving, they do not suffer from settling or water stagnation.

They do not chip and being monolithic they do not have the problem of grass growing in the joints, so they are very durable and have lower maintenance costs.

A thin protective resin layer is applied as a top coat, making the stamped floors water-repellent and stain-resistant.
