Concrete Walkway


Seen this a job I am bidding on, it's a concrete walkway cut and stained to give a wood appearance.
Pretty cool.

Re: Concrete Walkway


Looks like pavers vs stamped/poured in place to me

Re: Concrete Walkway


That's what I was thinking when I first seen it super seal, the joints are too uneven to be saw cuts, the homeowner says it was poured and cut but also done before he moved in, Either way its cool.

Re: Concrete Walkway


I agree with SS that this looks more like a paver vs concrete. Some guys around here does the wood plank stamped concrete, and in no way does it look this good.

But either way, the walks that SUM and SS posted are both beautiful.

Re: Concrete Walkway


Looks really neat. I wonder how they cut it without over cuts ? The stop points are perfect !

That's because they're pavers

Re: Concrete Walkway


They do not fit the definition of "pavers" and they look like plant cast uniform width slabs using molds for the surface pattern and a pigmented iron oxide spray before casting (face down). They could be cast in variable lengths (1/3 or 1/5 lengths commonly) or cut to random lengths in the plant - A common European approach.

Pavers are usually set in place and then vibrated into the setting bed to create a uniformly even surface.

Re: Concrete Walkway


That looks really cool. I didn't know that wood plank looking pavers existed. Definitely making a mental note for those.

Chepo calls them pavers...http://www.homedepot.com/p/75-sq-ft-...LANK/206503343

Silver Creek calls them landscape tiles....http://www.silvercreeksw.com/barn-plank.htm

They still crack as evidenced by that 1st pic would suggest however.

One cracking here or there would not concern me much. Just R&R them when needed. My concern,like all concrete pavers,eventually the cement paste wears off and the aggregate becomes pronounced.
