    Hello,

    I am preparing to replace my interlocking patio and driveway with concrete. My main purpose is less maintenance and add value to the property. In the market, I heard a lot about Stamped concrete, but today, I learn that there is another type call Sandblast concrete. The salesperson told me Sandblast concrete is more durable, and less maintenance. Whatever Stamped concrete can make, Sandblast concrete can make too.

    I would like to receive some input from experienced users and those experts in the trade, what really the difference between Sandblast concrete and Stamped concrete. As a user, which one is better?

    Look forward to any opinion and suggestion on how to choose them wisely.

    Thank you so much in advance.

    I had not seen the sandblast look before.
    Stamped is not maintenance free and really hard to match if you have a crack or anything.
