Stenciling can be done in both freshly placed concrete or in existing concrete that has been covered by an overlay. Stencils are made of thick, tear-resistant paper covered with a water resistant coating. The stencil patterns consist of only the “mortar joint,” with the “brick or “stones” cut out. Stencils for concrete come in a wide variety of popular patterns ranging from running bond brick to stone, slate and tiles. See example below.
Stencils can also be custom made. In other words, if you have a logo, saying or just decoration you want to put on your countertop or floor, we can help. Explore new creative possibilities with decorative borders, corner accents, company logos, family crests, monograms, and a special drawing and more. Our custom stencils can be used with a variety of installation techniques including: cast-in-place, overlayment, vertical applications, acid stain, concrete dye and sandblasting. The stencil below was done colored with SS Dye-namic.
