Concrete patios open up a world of possibility in your backyard or sideyard, and are a great way to increase the value of your home and enjoy the outdoors.
Concrete patios are one of our strengths, and they're a great way to add value and excitement to your home. Unbeatable is a lovely, clean concrete (or stamped concrete) patio with deck chairs, a grill, and an outdoor campfire. Consider concrete patios for your front or backyard, as well as specific spots like outdoor meeting areas or parking lots. Patios provide a lot of freedom, and we can help you design the patio of your dreams.
When constructing a patio, there are a few things to consider. The first is how it appears. Patios that succeed are usually constructed on flat, even surfaces that can support their weight. Building on uneven or unstable ground can lead to cracking, reducing the life of your patio and demanding costly repairs in the future. Consider the materials after that. If you hire our company or any other reputable contractor, they will aid you in selecting the best material for the task. This is usually a specially chosen type of concrete that is ideal for your patio project. Concrete patio stamping is another something we may discuss. Do you like the look of modest concrete designs? From a wide choice of alternatives, we can add anything you like. We may even dye or paint the concrete to help you realize any design you have in mind.
How much will it set you back? Stamped concrete can cost anything from $8 to $14 per square foot. These prices can, however, rise if colors or other substances are added. If you add colors or more design work, the price per square foot might jump to $20 to $23. Do you need some stamps and colors for your project? Your project should cost between $18 and $23.
Stamped patios are more expensive than paver patios. While we like the look of well-placed pavers, we think stamped or plain concrete is a preferable option. Surprisingly, paver quotes for similar-sized areas have been found to be equivalent to concrete projects. Sure, pavers can save you money on occasion, but this isn't always the case. The main downside of pavers is that, no matter how neatly they're laid, weeds and plants can still force their way through your patio or sidewalk. They'll come eventually, perhaps a year or two later, and you'll spend the next few years fighting them. You still risk weeds penetrating your paver surface even if you lay down a thick, weed-resistant tarp. In addition to weeds, pavers are more difficult to clean. Consider having to use a shovel to clear dropped food or dirt from pavers, or worse, dealing with stubborn snow. The use of concrete surfaces facilitates all of this. They prevent weed growth, are simple to clean, and are less expensive than pavers. Consider these two options carefully, but don't be afraid to go for a concrete patio!
