Stenciled concrete is a popular choice for most homeowners because it mimics the look and even the feel of bricks, tiles and stones even though it is actually made of concrete. Stenciled concrete is very much realistic as it makes use of concrete that is overlaid and in so doing, leaves mortar joints. Mortar joints are originally the space between bricks, stones and concrete blocks and are very familiar terms in the field of masonry. However, through the use of stencil patterns as well as the overlaid concrete, having mortar joints is quite possible without using bricks, stones and concrete blocks at all!
There are many advantages to stenciled concrete. Firstly, stenciling is a relatively fast process, most especially if you employ highly qualified concreters like Wizcrete to do the job for you. Craftsmen and labor men can work on large areas at one time since there is no need to wait for the concrete to set – keeping in mind that stenciling is basically overlaying another concrete to a previous one. Another advantage is that stenciled concrete is more flat compared to stamped concrete in terms of surface. Although there are mortar joints, these joints aren’t as deep as stamped concrete and can make cleaning way easier. It can also make snow shoveling more convenient compared to stamped concrete.
