Stamping

Welcome to John E. Tarr Cement Contracting. We specialize in concrete projects for residential and commercial properties. John E. Tarr Cement Contracting is well known in Southwestern Pennsylvania for many types of custom work such as, stamped concrete, integral coloring, exposed aggregate, steps with check walls, & acid stain coloring.

Stamped concrete adds beauty & style to any driveway, sidewalk, patio and pool. Stamped concrete can be installed anywhere you put traditional concrete. Regular gray dulling concrete can now be stamped & colored in many combinations using one of our 16 patterns and over 40 colors. Our most popular patterns are granite slate, random filled stone, symmetrical brick/cobblestone and European fern.  

As the concrete is being placed on the job in the normal manner experienced finishers apply the color or colors. They also apply a release agent which is also a color (darker or lighter than the primary color). This prevents the stamp from sticking to the wet concrete. After pulling up the stamp this leaves an imprint in the concrete from form to form. The following day the finisher returns and power washes off the excess release agent and then applies a coat of clear seal to protect your investment from the environment. Your stamped concrete should last 30 to 40 years. Cost is substantially less expensive than paver stone or masonry. Stamped concrete will not let weeds grow through.

Please review the following photos that highlight some of the custom details & creative methods.
