A stamped concrete patio creates the look of stone or brick pavers without the high cost. You’ll enjoy a beautiful, aesthetically pleasing, and long-lasting patio without spending much money. These durable patios are made from a color-treated concrete base and pressed with specially patterned stamps. Unlike a basic concrete patio, stamped concrete is enhanced with the color and texture of your choice, giving you complete control over the final look. The stamped designs mimic various materials like natural stone, brick, or even wood planks. Your patio design can be simple or intricate, depending on your chosen pattern and color.
Your actual new stamped concrete patio cost will vary, but the average cost ranges from approximately $2,400 to $5,600. The average homeowner can expect to pay around $3,073 for a 200-square-foot stamped concrete patio.

When you ask how much stamped concrete is, remember that the job is best handed over to professional contractors and/or landscape designers. Concrete not stamped correctly can develop unwanted marks or ridges and become more vulnerable to damage over time. Experienced professionals know how to help you determine your specific needs based on things like how large you want the patio to be, how you plan to use it, any potential drainage issues, and how close you want it to be to your home. Your contractor should also have a wide variety of pre-made stamps to help keep your total cost down.
