Stenciled concrete is concrete that is used paper patterns and textured or embossed to resemble brick, slate,flagstone, stone, tile, wood, and various other patterns and textures.
Stenciled concrete is commonly used for patios, sidewalks, driveways, pool decks, and interior flooring. The ability of stenciled concrete to resemble other building materials makes stenciled concrete a less expensive alternative to using those other authentic materials such as stone, slate or brick.
Stencilling produces an image or pattern by applying pigment to a surface over an intermediate object with designed gaps in it which create the pattern or image by only allowing the pigment to reach some parts of the surface.
The key advantage of a stencil is that it can be reused to repeatedly and rapidly produce the same letters or design.
