Does stamped concrete get slippery around pool? Hot in sun? - We are starting a project around our pool area with stamped concrete and are wondering how slippery it will get when wet. Also, the pool is in an extremely sunny area, and we wonder about the heat retention of the material. Any guidance?

I apologize for not seeing your question on time to answer it.. I hope your project will turn out to be good..The sealing part of the concrete can handle the issues with being slippery by adding poly. sand during the sealing process...Heat will have the same effect as it will have on any stone materials...depends of the time of the day and the color of the concrete it may be more or less hot..May be addition of an arbor or ornamental trees or shade trees closed by can help to cut back on the amount of sun exposure for the pool deck areas.. It is hard to say without seeing the conditions..

It is a powder look like DRY SHAKE COLOR HARDENER AND ANTIQUING RELEASE from Concrete Colors of Texas , LLC. ( Architectural Concrete Colors) Please see the attached copy of the chart. Base coat ( DRY SHAKE COLOR HARDENER will be used as base coat and once you poured the concrete and leveled it , when it is wet you will apply to the top ( do not mix it ) like a powder layer. Once the stamping process will start , you will apply the ANTIQUING RELEASE powder before you put the each stamp down as you go... I posted in one of the earlier posts about the colors. On this project Base was Austin Buff, Release was Khaki Stone, Highlights was walnut or portebello.

What colors were used for the cement? - We want something similar to the cream field, but are having trouble getting to it. Your insight is greatly appreciated!

This project was done almost 5 years ago , i believe we used Austin Buff as Base Color and Khaki Stone as our release color. On the border, we used pecan as our highlights. I attached another picture from one of my recently finished project where we used the same color with a different pattern. Please see the attached picture. I hope this will be helpful. Best Regards, Melda Clark
