DIY CONCRETE TILE TUTORIAL - Get the look of stamped concrete for a fraction of the cost!

Hola friends and thanks for stopping by!

Earlier this year, a couple of buddies and I installed this amazing DIY stamped concrete tile on my Mom and Pop’s driveway and I promised to write up the tutorial for y’all. Well, it’s finally here. But I do have to apologize for taking so long to post. I’ve gotten numerous emails saying, “girl, where the heck is the tutorial?” Okay, well maybe not exactly in those words, but you know what I mean.

The reason it’s taken so long to post is because I’ve been waiting for the manufacturer of this tiling system to officially launch this brand new product. After all, the tutorial is of no help if you can’t access the product, right?

Luckily, it’s finally available to the public and let me tell ya that you’re going to love it. I mean that. I’m not receiving any kind of commission by sharing this with you. I’m just telling you about my own experience.

My favorite part of the concrete tile system is that it looks just like stamped concrete, but at about 1/3 the cost. Traditional stamped concrete would run you about $10 per square foot, whereas installing the stamped concrete tiles cost around $3-$4 per square foot. Can’t beat that. And you don’t need any special concrete-making skills, just some grunt labor. (After this project, “grunt labor” is my new name.)

Check out some before and after pictures of homes that have installed these concrete tiles…

Pretty impressive, huh.

And here’s a brief video overview with more photos and info…

 

 

Before I get on with the tutotial, let me tell you a little about the man behind the magic. The creator of this concrete tiling system that mimics stamped concrete is Gerry Sadlier, owner of Stone Crete Systems (formally known as Countertop Solutions. You know, the place where I learned how to make marbleized concrete countertops…you can check out that tutorial HERE. And, boy, those countertops sure are perdy!).

Gerry’s been in the concrete business for 30 years and is a pioneer who has seriously impacted the world of decorative concrete with his remarkable innovations. He is the inventor of 1/4″ stamped concrete overlay, which revolutionized stamped concrete and is listed by Concrete Decor magazine as one of the 10 milestones in the history of decorative concrete. He is also an inductee into the Decorative Concrete Hall of Fame! Cool, huh. So, what I’m getting at, basically, is the dude knows his stuff. Check out a sampling of some of the amazing work that’s been done using his innovative products…

But with all his accomplishments, according to Gerry, his greatest one so far is his beautiful family.

That’s Gerry on the left.

 

I worked with Gerry and my buddy, Scott Rogers, owner of Stonecrete USA in Tampa, on this project. Scott’s been in the concrete biz for many years too, so between the two of them I learned a ton.

To purchase the system, give Gerry a call at 619-820-9894 or email him at [email protected]. Or check out his website at stonecretesystems.com (formerly countertopsolutions.net). Your kit comes with reusable molds so you can pour your tiles, StoneCrete’s proprietary tile mix, adhesive mix, primer, color powder, and sealer.

The molds come in two forms: one that mimics naturally shaped stone and one that is geometric shaped.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

I went with the geometric shape which covers 5 square feet per tile. (The random stone tiles cover 6 square feet per tile.)

Using the StoneCrete tile admix, Scott (aka, grunt labor #2) mixed and poured all our tiles. (Thank you Scott!) When pouring tiles, ensure that your mix is poured into the molds level with the top edges.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

He brilliantly rigged up this shelf thingy to set the tiles to dry vertically so they wouldn’t take up too much space.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

When tiles are dry and hard (in 5-8 hours), you can remove them from the molds.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Scott drove the finished tiles over to my Mom & Pop’s place and I unloaded, stacking them in a nice little corner.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

You’ll need to clean your surface by scrubbing with detergent. We used Simple Green mixed 3:1 with water.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

I rented a pressure washer from Home Depot and pressure washed the driveway at 3000 psi using a 15 degree tip to clean and rinse.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Remove any obstructions from the concrete edges such as grass or plants. (This would have been easier had we kept up with edging the lawn.)

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Mix up the primer and 1-1/2 parts play sand. This will be used to fill any cracks and joints in your concrete.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Press the primer and sand mix into the cracks and joints using a putty knife. Scrape up the excess.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Then prime the surface with the primer using a 3/8″ nap paint roller.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Throw a medium broadcast of #30 silica sand into the wet primer.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

When primer dries, mix up the StoneCrete Adhesive Admix.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Use a 1/4″ x 3/8″ x 1/4″ notched trowel to apply the adhesive mix to the back of your tiles.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

We rigged up this little table contraption to lift the tile off the flat surface to make it easier to apply the adhesive. It’s a 4′ x 4′ board with a 1′ x 1′ center piece of 2″ foam (or wood) attached in the middle.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

To use it, we laid the tiles upside down on the center piece of foam (or wood) so the tiles are suspended 2″ off the 4′ table below, then spread the adhesive. This helped keep the tile surfaces from getting dirty from the adhesive mix that spills on the table below when you trowel the StoneCrete Adhesive Mix on the back of the tile using your notched trowel.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Once you’ve got your adhesive on the back of the tiles, lay tiles next to one other. The tiles are set up so that they fit together like a giant puzzle.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

After each tile is laid, stand on them to press the adhesive into the surface.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

There were some areas where the tiles popped up a bit, so we uses concrete blocks where needed to hold down tile corners that may stick up over uneven areas. Since installing this driveway, Gerry has refined the process a little and he now temporarily screws down the corners to keep everything locked down until the adhesive dries.

When you press the tiles down, some of the adhesive mix will squish up around the edges of each tile. Simply use that as a grout to fill in the seams around each tile.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

We filled 1-quart squeeze bottles with adhesive mix to make it easier to fill the seams with more adhesive mix. Lemme tell ya, it made the grouting process so much easier!

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Once you’ve added additional adhesive mix along the edges, use a grout sponge to press the mix into the seams.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Clean and ring out the sponge often in a bucket of water as you grout the seams.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

And clean the excess adhesive mix from the surface. It doesn’t have to be perfectly cleaned, just feather it out to zero.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

When it came to the edges, we had to cut some tile to fit. To make this easy, we made paper templates the same size as the tiles by laying a tile over the paper and cutting around the edges using a utility knife.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Once you have your template cut out, lay the template as if it were a tile along the unfinished edges and measure where to cut.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Then lay the marked template over a tile with the texture side facing up.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Transfer your marks onto the tile to be cut.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

And cut the tile using a 4″ diamond blade saw. This one is made by Rockwell.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Spread adhesive on the back of the cut tile and fit into place along the edge.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

For open edges with no obstructions in the way you can lay a real tile instead of the paper template to mark where to cut.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Keep marking and cutting tiles until all the edges are completed.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Stand on each tile to press the adhesive into the surface for the best bond.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Once all your tile is laid, use a right angle grinder with a 4″ diamond cup wheel to grind the edges of the tiles so they’re gently rounded and not sharp. (Notice the little monster supervising in the upper left corner. Ahh, what would I do without her?)

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

A concrete rubbing stone can also be used to touch up edges where needed.

This is what your surface will look like at this point….

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

With a close-up, you’ll notice that some of your tiles may have small voids…

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

If any tiles have damaged areas such as pinholes or broken corners, use the adhesive admix and a grout sponge to touch them up.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Touch up any damaged areas on the surface of the tiles with adhesive mix and a grout sponge. Just press the grout onto the surface and wipe with your grout sponge. This will fill in any voids.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Rub Adhesive Admix along the edges of the outside tiles to cover any gaps between the tile and the surface. Sponge the excess clean.

Notice we laid tape along the edge so as not to get the mix onto the non-tiled surface.

Now it’s time to apply color.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Before coloring with Roll-Top, blow off any dirt or debris.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Mix Roll-Top Cement in a five gallon bucket in the color desired.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Apply Roll-Top Cement using a 1-1/4″ nap paint roller. Apply in a thin, even coat. (Notice the lazy dude in the corner sitting there while I do all the work. Lol.)

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

(Okay, he’s redeemed himself.) Roll-Top will dry in 30 to 60 minutes. Wait 2 hours minimum before spraying antique color.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

To create more dimension on the tile surfaces, we added an “antiquing” color and applied it  over the Roll-Top color.

To prep the antiquing color, add 4-6 oz of Color Antique Powder to 1 gallon of water and shake well.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Use a small garden sprayer to spray the antique powder and water solution over the surface, letting the fluid puddle in the low areas of the texture.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Spray one or more colors of antiquing after each one dries to get the antiqued look desired.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Once the antiquing color is dry, you can apply sealer. To prep the sealer, mix StoneSeal in a 1:1 ratio with acetone and pour into an acetone resistant pump-up sprayer.

 

DIY CONCRETE TILED DRIVEWAY TUTORIAL: GET A STAMPED CONCRETE LOOK FOR WAY LESS $$

 

Apply the 1:1 ratio StoneSeal/acetone mixture.

After applying the mixture, to create a slip resistant surface, lightly throw slip guard granules onto the first coat.

Wait for the first coat to dry, then apply a second coat of StoneSeal/acetone mixture.

Here’s a close-up after the second coat was applied and still wet…

There you have it!

I wouldn’t call this a difficult job by any means, but it is labor intensive. It took us about five afternoons to install about 700 square feet of driveway. So a job this size isn’t a weekend job. But if you’re doing a small walkway or patio, that could probably be completed in a weekend if you pour your tiles ahead of time.

If you’re interested in learning more about StoneCrete’s stamped concrete tile system, give Gerry Sadlier a call at 619-820-9894 and he can ship your kit out to you.

    What do you have to do if you have cracked surfaces that are fairly uneven? Would have you it mudjacked to even out first? If part of the driveway is concrete and part asphalt can you go over the entire driveway?

      Apologies for the delayed response Thomas. The surface doesn’t have to be completely flat, but the unevenness would be a problem. Would need to be fixed first. And, yes, you can install over a part concrete and part asphalt surface.

    Beautiful job and a very nice tutorial. You did a great job and the end result is lovely but I fear it would take me a life time to make the tiles and lay them. This is definitely a project for the younger gen! Probably well worth the effort if you have the stamina for the project though. Thanks for the great tutorial!

    Hello, Beautiful work, and wonderful tutorial.

    Question: I know you said the kit came with 2 different molds. However, I noticed is some of his pictures he had wide plank faux wood, is this mold available?

      Hi Palino, The kit actually comes with one of the two molds. You’ll need to select one. The image with the faux plank wood is from a project he did with actual 1/4″ stamped concrete, so right now it’s not one that’s available with the kit. But I do recommend reaching out to Gerry because he may be able to make a custom mold for you.

    Hello Jenise, what exactly is the advantage over tile? Looks like your basicly laying tile but you also have to color and seal?

    Reply
    • Jenise
      October 28, 2015 at 3:00 pm (1 year ago)

      Hi Lee, I emailed Gerry to answer your question and here’s his response:
      “The advantage is that these tiles are made out of cement and fibers so they are flexible over uneven surfaces. We screw them down in the corners between the grout lines and they bend to conform to high spots and low spots. The next day we remove the screws and grout etc. Tile will break if you try to bend them. When laying tile you have to level the surface first. Most outdoor concrete surfaces are uneven so tile is mostly used indoors. The other advantage is the texture. Our tiles have deeper texture like real stamped concrete and look like real stamped concrete when done. Most tile has shallow texture and looks like tile when done. Tile can be slippery when wet. We have the ability to add non slip granules into the sealer. Also tile doesn’t come in the patterns we have, they are mostly square. Our patterns are made to look like real stamped concrete.”
      Please let me know if you have more questions. :-)

    This is a wonderful looking project! Very impressive! I wonder, though, the concrete tiles look so thin. Won’t they be prone to cracking?

    • Jenise
      March 6, 2016 at 12:33 am (12 months ago)

      Hi Cathy, Actually, because the concrete is thin it is more flexible and therefore actually less prone to cracking. Plus, the concrete mix includes fiberglass fibers for extra strength and when you make a thinner slab, the fiberglass fibers end up laying flat on a single plane and that also makes the tile stronger than if the fibers were laying in multiple planes. Does that make senses?

      Ryan, The difference is with the tiles the cost comes to $4 per square foot. Traditional stamped concrete is about $10 per square foot. So total cost will depend on the size of your project.

    Such a super fun project and it looks amazing. I loved seeing the step by step process as well. The great news about concrete is you can make almost any look you desire. Keep in mind, if you patio, walkway or steps ever become uneven, even if they have stamped concrete tiles on top, you can lift them back into place with foam mudjacking!
