Concrete is one of the most flexible tools in the architect's armory. There are no other substances that present such tough characteristics, stain resistance, and remain impervious to even the worst the elements can throw at it and yet be so flexible in terms of looks. The days of drab old gray concrete are over and with that concrete has become something that no longer has to be hidden as a part of the structure of a building. Modern architectural concrete is so presentable and attractive that it is no longer hidden but instead used for cladding, especially with pre-shaped forms, as well as surface coatings that can be mixed, stained, and polished to pretty much any look you like. So if you're in the architectural or construction business and you're looking for a partner who can help you choose the exact look of your facades and externals then Dallas Concrete Stamping is the company for you. We can mix the perfect blend, pour it to custom shapes, or provide pre-shaped formwork for you.

There's no limit to the combination of different cements and aggregates that we can blend to get the effects you're looking for in your design work. That doesn't just mean color stains but also specialties like white Portland cement to get gleaming marble white polished marble effect cement. We can use ceramic aggregates, sand, or any number of different blends to get a texture, look, and light reflecting qualities to suit your vision.
A lot of architectural concrete involves forms; pre-shaped concrete elements that can easily be maneuvered into place and which combine to give the structural strength you need but with the looks that you're dreaming of. The beauty of formwork is that it means we can mix and pour concrete under perfect workshop conditions but then fix it into place. For example with cladding forms it would be tough to get the perfect look when applying concrete to a vertical surface but if poured on the horizontal then fixed in place you get all the benefits of poured concrete on any surface of the building.
