You're acting like concrete isnt poured in places where it freezes and that the only alternative is pavers. Pavers are a luxury good, they cost 10/15SF installed here. Concretes going down at 5/8 SF. Stamped is another gaudy animal.

I think for most hardscape guys you just get used to selling against concrete. And it is possible to make stamped concrete look good, just not the way 90% of the stamp guys are doing it.

STamped looks great.

The problem is it cracks. So if a section needs replaced - the dye won't match or the contractor with the stamps went out of
