Increase the Value of your Home with Stamped Concrete

Increasing the value of our home is something we’d all love to achieve! It’s not the easiest of tasks…But now you can and we’ll tell you how:

Everyone wants a beautiful home and Bomanite is here to help you achieve exactly that. Installing stamped concrete for your driveway or patio creates curb appeal and automatically increases the value of your home.

Reasons to Renovate with Stamped Concrete

  1. Cost efficient – Stamped concrete will make your surface resemble products like brick and stone without paying the equivalent of what those products would cost. Stamped concrete is more affordable because the entire installation process involves less work, and minimal materials are used to lay out the product. You get a beautiful look for a great value.
  2. Less maintenance – Stamped concrete has a smooth finish leaving no room for weeds to grow in between cracks, making it easy to clean away any dirt or residue.
  3. Slip resistant – During the rainy and snowy months, your outside walkways can become a safety hazard; however, Bomanite’s stamped concrete provides slip resistant materials to ensure every step is safe.
  4. Curb Appeal – There’s no denying it – every home automatically looks more stunning after the addition of stamped concrete to either the driveway, backyard or both. By amplifying the appearance of your home, you will also instantly increase the value.

The Stamped Concrete Process

First, the expert pours the concrete on the designated surface (it can be placed on top of previous concrete applications). After the product is evenly distributed, the design of your choice is stamped on top for a natural, clean look. Conveniently, stamped concrete comes in a variety of colours and can easily be matched to the exterior of your home.

Why choose Bomanite?

Bomanite offers stamped concrete that will positively transform your yard, having people stop to admire a job well done. Experts at Bomanite are highly experienced in installing stamped concrete with a guarantee of top quality and professional services.

Exposed Aggregate Concrete is the Modern Option!

Stamped concrete is undeniably beautiful and creates a wonderful look for your home. However, there are other options to select from and Bomanite wants you to be informed before you make your decisions!

A new trend that is actually a lot more modern than you may think is exposed aggregate concrete. This decorative style of concrete can be used in multiple areas of the home including driveways, walkways and patios. It is a popular choice for each of these areas due to its aesthetic value, low maintenance, and non-slip surface. It is also extremely durable and strong, which is why it can be used in almost every outdoor design.

Exposed aggregate concrete is extremely popular due to its smooth finish, which displays small stones and pebbles within the concrete. It is available in a variety of colours, so you are able to customize the appearance to your preference.

There are so many advantages to exposed aggregate for your home! Not only can you use it almost anywhere, it is also a unique look that most people don’t have. It is both beautiful and durable, which is all you could want for your home!

We would be happy to service you with exposed aggregate concrete if you live in Toronto or the surrounding area. Call us today for a free quote or visit bomanite.ca for more information.

Why Should You Invest in a Heated Concrete Driveway?

Some of the benefits of a heated driveway may seem obvious, but people are still hesitant on installing one for their home. Homeowners either think it’s too expensive or just not worth it. What they don’t realize is, with a heated driveway rather than heated drivewayregular concrete, you are paying for comfortability and ease of living, which can go a long way and save money in other departments.

The main purpose of a heated driveway is to keep your pavement warm in order to melt snow that falls upon its surface. Therefore, snow will not pile up on your driveway during those intense winter storms. You may argue that it does not take a lot of effort to just pick up a shovel and manually rid yourself of the mess. However, the benefits of a heated driveway for your home are undeniable. Not only will you have an easy way to keep your pavement clear of snow, the heated driveway will also stop ice accumulation providing a safe route to exit your home. Another benefit you may not have thought of is the decreased need to use salt or chemicals, which will protect the driveway from becoming damaged.

Remember that you have options to decrease hassles in your life. Heated driveways can bring down long term costs and also leave you with extra time and comfort.

Sifting through online reviews to make the right decision

There are a number of websites out there that present consumer reviews of companies like ours who provide stamped concrete, architectural concrete and concrete driveway solutions.

As a proud service provider with a strong reputation on these sites, Bomanite wants to provide a few words of advice in regards to selecting the right company, in our industry or in others as well. The following advice also pertains to product and restaurant reviews. So please keep the following 4 aspects in mind when reading online reviews.

1) Rating
If a company has a perfect rating, or something too close to perfect that you have to look twice, that could be a warning sign that something is amiss. As much as companies strive for perfection, it’s almost impossible to be perfect. If a company has nothing but perfect reviews, look at the reviewers’ profiles. If they have never posted a rating/review before, or they ONLY post perfect ratings for multiple companies, chances are they’re either not valid, or their review was encouraged and not naturally given.

2) Style and Tone
If a company’s reviews all seem the same, there’s a chance they are written by the same person. In our world, people come from a multitude of different backgrounds. As such, their understanding of English varies, as does their vocabulary. Realistic reviews will have different descriptive words, the odd spelling mistake, different tones and different lengths. Some may describe every detail with Shakespearean prose, while others may write three words in total. This variance is an indication of authentic reviews.

3) What they actually say
If a number of reviews refer to the same themes or specific topics, especially in a row, that can seem suspicious. Some companies are limited in how much can be said about them, but if the content of the reviews are all too similar, take them with a grain of salt.

4) Timing
Some companies are seasonal, so it doesn’t make a lot of sense that they have reviews during their off-season, as most reviews are given almost immediately after the job is complete. Additionally, if the reviews are timed evenly apart, as in almost exactly in a pattern, that could be another flag. Real people post reviews whenever they get a chance. Sometimes three will be posted within a week, sometimes there will be 2-3 months between reviews. Watch for patterns.

The purpose of this blog entry isn’t to make you skeptical of online reviews – they can be very helpful in selecting a company or product you can trust. We just want to help you make a more educated decision when you select the concrete service provider to entrust with your driveway, landscaping or backyard.

What Exactly is Stamped Concrete?

The world of stamped concrete may appear confusing to some if you are not familiar with it. Maybe it’s your first time with outdoor renovations or maybe you’ve renovated before, but you didn’t know what stamped concrete was. Whatever your situation is, we want to ensure that you feel comfortable with your decisions and are properly informed. We want you to know just what stamped concrete is and why it is different from other materials.

Essentially, stamped concrete is just a type of concrete that replicates other stones such as brick, slate, tile, wood, and so on. Many people call it textured concrete or imprinted concrete. In recent years, the stamped concrete trend has grown as people have become more informed. Stamped concrete is able to provide a multitude of options and patterns for homes or commercial buildings while also being less expensive than the materials that they are reproducing.

Stamped concrete features a wide array of colour options and can be used with other coordinating elements such as exposed aggregate. Complex designs can be achieved in walkways, concrete driveways and even steps. The customizable nature of stamped concrete leaves the options endless and also affordable.

Whether you live in Toronto, Brampton, Woodbridge, or any of the surrounding areas, Bomanite can achieve your stamped concrete services. Contact us today or visit http://bomanite.ca/ for more information.
