It’s an amazing scene! As you step onto your neighbor’s new patio, your jaw drops, and you feel like you’re at a posh lounge of a 5 star resort. The stamped concrete has an elegant stone look, the built in stainless steel grill is filling the neighborhood with sweet smoke, friends are laughing around a blazing fire, and the whole area is lit with warm amber luminescence. It hits you… I NEED a patio space like this!
Your head swims with all the What If’s and How To’s? What elements would I include? Where would I place everything? How long did it all take? What are the costs? And most important, who did the work? Your friend responds with a smile…Ageless Concrete.
A great outdoor living space is not created overnight and unique challenges present themselves with every project. You will need a partner, a professional contractor who will ensure that your expectations, both immediate and future are considered and met. Once you decide on the right contractor for you, the fun begins.
The 1st question to ask yourself when creating an outdoor living space is: How will I use my patio space? Do you envision a cozy space for your morning coffee? Or are you an entertainer, who loves to host events for friends and family? Perhaps neighborhood BBQ’s and evening fires are at the top of your priority list?
Building a patio or outdoor living space may seem basic, but the real challenge becomes combining multiple home elements into one open outdoor space. Outdoor kitchen features, dining areas, and living areas, must flow together seamlessly and concisely. As you can imagine, the options can become a bit overwhelming.
We simplify this process by breaking it down into steps that guide you towards your perfect patio & outdoor living environment. The following steps will transform your vision into a patio space that is as timeless as your memories. Allow yourself to be creative!
- Create a Personal Patio Wish List & Establish a Realistic Target Budget
- Agree on Design, Layout, Timing, and Cost
- Break Ground on Project Start Date, with Constant Contact Throughout Project
- Sit Back & Enjoy Your New Patio!
At Ageless Concrete, we embrace the fact that concrete is the strongest, most durable, and environmentally safe product on the market. As with all building and construction projects, the foundation of every quality endeavor is the concrete itself. We start all our patio projects with 4″ thick, reinforced, colored and stamped concrete. There are right ways and wrong ways to do things; patios are no different. Our systematic approach ensures we produce ultra high quality concrete products that will stand the test of time.
Stamped Concrete’s origins are similar to those of traditional concrete, which is typically used for city sidewalks, driveways, and super highways. Stamped concrete differs by a few key factors that transform boring grey concrete into custom concrete creations:
- Integral color is added throughout the concrete: Durable, Long lasting, & Low fading.
- Natural stamp patterns are imprinted into the surface of wet concrete: The Look of Slate, Stone, Wood, and Beyond!
- Antiquing Colors are added to the surface of concrete, making it Ageless!
- 2 Coats of Sealer with Traction Additive are Applied: Semi-gloss Glow, Maximum Protection, & Non-Slippery.
Stamped concrete is available in a wide range of patterns and colors, each of which replicate the natural look of stone, slate, brick, wood planks, and much more. The thought of picking out patterns and colors give you the cold sweats? No worries! Our design team will help you choose the pattern and color combinations that will best accent your home’s exterior or other existing landscape elements.

Every colored and stamped concrete patio from Ageless Concrete is a hand crafted, one of a kind piece of functional art, and the elements you may wish to include in your patio project are truly limitless. In addition to our colored and stamped concrete, some of our most popular options are: Fire Features, Seat Walls, Low Voltage Lighting, Outdoor Kitchens, Pergolas, and Raised Planters.
Our most popular fire features are wood burning block fire pits. A classic look that is attractive and budget friendly. If you prefer not to smell like a campfire every time you spend an evening outdoors, we offer various types of gas burning fire features. Gas burning fire features provide a brilliant fire without the sparks, smoke, or work. The convenience of being able to turn your fire on and off, makes gas burning fire features very attractive.
If you decide to add a fire feature, you’ll likely want to include ample seating for your guests. Our seat walls provide a functional dimension that alleviates the concerns of limited seating, eliminating the need for excess furniture and clutter. Typically, we book end our seat walls with slightly taller pillars, topped with natural Limestone caps. Really want to make your patio pop? Hit the lights!
Low voltage LED lighting systems are a great way to add warm ambiance to your outdoor living space. We recommend “down lights” that are incorporated into our seat walls and pillars. Down lights provide indirect lighting for your patio area that is far superior to obnoxious flood lights. We design and install a wide range of lighting systems that can illuminate your pathways, light up your trees, and create an amazing scene. We literally add light to your life!
Love Wisconsin evenings, but hate mosquitoes? We have a lighting system that combines low voltage LED lights with a patented mosquito repellent technology, which creates a mosquito free sanctuary around your outdoor living space. Outdoors is yours! You no longer have to douse your family in chemicals to enjoy an evening by the fire.
Are you the family grillmaster? Perhaps an outdoor kitchen element will land on your wish list. Outdoor kitchen elements, like built in bar and grill features are extremely popular. The possibilities for an outdoor kitchen are endless. Gas grills, side burners, Big Green Eggs, and even wood fire pizza ovens are just the start. We build to suit, and sinks, fridges, even storage and hidden waste bins can be implemented into your patio project. We install granite, stone, and custom concrete countertops to make your outdoor kitchen one of a kind.
We are obsessed with stamped concrete patios and outdoor living spaces. We understand that the process can be an overwhelming one; and that ultimate success lies in the details. To alleviate these concerns, we emphasize high level customer service and consistent communication, ensuring you know exactly what to expect during every phase of your project.
