Ask yourself this question before settling on a concrete patio vs wood or pavers. Do you wish to spend your summer days on your deck instead of weeding between paving stones or refinishing wooden deck planks? Concrete is the patio material for you if yes. Continue reading to uncover more reasons why.
A concrete patio allows for more design options. Concrete allows you to be as conservative as you like or go all out with bright colors, unusual shapes, contours, or stamps. Color and stain improvements in recent years provide you a wide palette to pick from. Poured-in-place concrete can provide a neutral transition from the hues of nature or announce to the world that your patio is a separate area.
Unlike wood, concrete can be poured into any shape, so it can fit any backyard. And speaking of weird, your contractor may stamp any design you come up with into your patio using state-of-the-art stamping tools. Read our blog post about how long stamped concrete lasts. If you prefer a more traditional look, keep it smooth and rectangular as homeowners have done for years. For a more rustic aesthetic, use exposed arrogate.
In any case, upkeep is minimal. There's no need to paint or coat it, and no weeds to pull from between the paving stones. Your patio will simply ask you to relax and enjoy it. Read our blog on What Type of Concrete Is Used for Patios for more information.
Investing in Concrete Patios
A concrete patio is a good investment because it is versatile and low maintenance. Solid is the key term here. Cement is firm. Unlike stone paving stones that can crack or become dislodged, it will not require costly repairs or replacement pavers. It won't decay, splinter, or attract termites and carpenter ants like wood, so you won't have to buy new planks, nails, or hire a carpenter to cut and hammer them into position.
A concrete patio is the epitome of the buy low, sell high investment rule. The original plan is less than wood or paving stones, and it adds value to your home. So when it comes time to sell your home, you'll get top dollar for a patio that has endured the test of time and still looks brand new.
No trees are needed to replace damaged wood, and no toxic chemicals from solvent-based wood stains sealers will leak into the soil or pollute the air.
