Stamped Sidewalk Saga: Chaos & Beauty

This month, we’re joining the Ortmann crew as they install a beautiful, custom stamped concrete walkway. Every job has its challenges, but this one came with extra features like flat tires, broken toes, and other concerns. Though as you’ll see, it was all worth it in the end.

When you hire Ortmann Concrete, you quickly find that you are working with a dedicated team of professionals who are focused on providing you with the best in every regard. When you watch the video, you’ll see that we are vigilant about every aspect—including ensuring that everything from the foundation to the sides is up to their standards.

We enjoy projects like this one because it gives us an opportunity to showcase all our strengths as a team while leaving our clients satisfied and happy.

Stamped concrete walkways are a great solution for the homeowner in search of an attractive outdoor feature that will stand up to the elements with minimal care. Read on to learn about this in more detail.

The Advantages of a Stamped Concrete Walkway

The advantages of a stamped concrete walkway are many. Here are just a few;

– Stamped Concrete Walkways are budget-friendly. The materials needed for stamped concrete walkways are cheaper than natural stone, brick or pavers. The costs of labor are less expensive as well.

– Stamped concrete is highly customizable. Homeowners can choose the colors, textures, and patterns. It can be designed to look like natural stone, cobblestone, brick, pavers, slate slabs, wood planks, and even floral patterns.

– Unlike other materials, stamped concrete needs minimal care. Keeping it in top condition is as easy as hosing it off and sweeping or blowing off any debris. It will withstand most weather conditions without shifting or cracking, making them low maintenance and long-lasting.

– One of the often-overlooked advantages of a stamped concrete walkway is that it often increases both the curb appeal and the value of your home. When potential buyers pull up in front of your home and its “For Sale” sign, they will not only be greeted by how attractive your house is, but the unexpectedly beauty of your stamped walkway.  And home buyers love to find homes with high-quality features like this already in place, as it saves them money and time.

From the time you meet Doug Ortmann, you know you are dealing with someone that is detail oriented. They received a straight “A” rating from us for all the reasons listed on the report card (price, quality, responsiveness, etc.). The concrete work force knows what they’re doing, and Doug always oversees the project and has hands on. The other huge plus is the knowledgeable office work force. They are a wealth of info about payments, schedules, getting answers, etc. We were so impressed with Ortmann that we are having them install new steps, patio, walkway, and double driveway, on a rental property we own, a project we have been pushing off until now. We would highly recommend Ortmann and would suggest at least calling if you need cement work.
