The book shows contractors where to find good stamped concrete designs; the five methods of imparting color to stamped concrete work; placing the concrete to facilitate stamping; and a complete, illustrated description of the entire stamping process. The guide also covers topics of vital importance for anyone planning to stamp concrete, including maximizing your profits by knowing what to charge for stamped concrete; concrete mix considerations for stamping concrete; site conditions affecting stamped concrete work; important issues to avoid when stamping; fixing minor flaws in stamped concrete work; and effective techniques for the application of sealers. With more than 25 years experience in the construction industry, Harris has conducted hands-on training seminars around the world, and has personally placed and/or supervised the placement of more than three million square feet of decorative concrete. As president of The Decorative Concrete Institute in Douglasville, Georgia, he offers hands-on training and workshops in the latest decorative products and techniques.
