Installation
Preparatory Work

Prior to the installation commencing, a site design meeting shall be performed to discuss and ensure that final product data/shop drawings meet the designer/owner requirements. An authorized Patterned Concrete licensed contractor must be present to discuss final product usage, such as concrete mix design, color pigment choice and imprint tool layout, as well as the pour schedule. Due to the imprinting procedure and proprietary manufacturing process, product usage, concrete mix design and installation may supersede standard construction design practices, so that the decorative or imprinted concrete work can be carried out, completed and warrantied.

Methods
Patterned Concrete follows established subgrade preparation and structural design. Work is performed by professionally trained and licensed installers using proprietary rigid stamping tools to create the specified pattern and design. Installation is performed in accordance with ACI 301 and CSA A23.1.

Reinforcement

Reinforcement is by Patterned Concrete's licensed and trained professionals per engineered documentation and in accordance with ASTM A185, ASTM A615 and project requirements.

Concrete

Concrete is mixed, placed and screeded by Patterned Concrete professionals in accordance with ASTM C150 for Type I, Type II or Type V, as required by project conditions. Fly ash or slag may be substituted for as much as 30 percent of Portland cement and in order to meet or attain LEED points.

  • Aggregate: Non-reactive stone, known to product acceptable concrete
  • Admixtures: Water in accordance with ASTM C494; air entraining admixture in accordance with ASTM C260 and ASTM C494
  • Concrete mix: Placed and screeded to the proper grade and wood floated to a uniform surface in normal manner
  • Bonding agents: To ACI 306 or as specified by structural engineer
  • Imprint pattern: By use of rigid molded stamping tools ensuring consistent depth and texture per manufacturer's application guidelines
  • Release agent: Patterned Concrete liquid or powdered release agent, evenly applied
  • Sealer: Patterned Concrete water or solvent based
Quality Assurance

Each project is backed with a warranty and recorded for future reference in a central data base so color, pattern and/or finish can be reproduced for future add on or maintenance requirement.

Building Codes

Ensure installation complies with the requirements of all applicable local, state and federal code jurisdictions.

Warranty

Warranty varies by project and meets industry standards. One, two or five year warranty is available.

Maintenance

Patterned Concrete Industries recommends stamped concrete be protected and properly cleaned to maintain appearance and longevity. Use approved deicers only when needed. Remove snow from concrete surface as quickly as possible to reduce freeze thaw cycles and reduce the need for deicers. Do not use deicers that contain magnesium chloride, nitrates, urea or sugar beets. For shiny acrylic finishes, avoid use of calcium products, which increase concrete slipperiness. Refer to the manufacturer's Maintenance Instruction and Orientation Guide for details.

Technical Services

Patterned Concrete Industries has experienced teams of concrete professionals who design, price and install offered systems. Onsite installation is comprised of consultations for design and construction, site inspections and submittal process to complete specific project file. The specific file is then saved to the Patterned Concrete Industries database for future maintenance and repair reference. Technical assistance, including detailed product information, product literature, test results and assistance in preparing project specifications, is available from Patterned Concrete Industries.
