Concrete Patios Are A Great Low Cost, Low Maintenance Design Feature To Enhance Your Backyard
For many families, a backyard patio is a fundamental part of their outdoor living. Due to their design versatility and general durability, concrete patios are a great paving material to use when it comes to creating the ideal outdoor space. In fact, a solid concrete patio can offer a number of benefits when compared to many other patio or decking options. If you're a homeowner, it's likely you'll be spending a great deal of time entertaining or just relaxing on your patio.
Up until wood decking became all the rage about 10-15 years ago or so, the majority of patios consisted of harder materials such as concrete, stone, or brick. Today, however, most of those wood decks that were installed a decade ago need to be replaced due to warping or rotting wood, or simply because homeowners grew tired of sealing and staining them every couple of years.
As a result, patios made of concrete are making a strong comeback for a number of reasons, some of which include the following benefits.
Resilience and Durability
Because concrete is so durable and resilient, it can easily withstand a broad range of different weather conditions. In fact, several concrete contractors who primarily work in colder regions take special precautions in order to ensure that the patios they create are extremely durable and long-lasting.
Concrete is a naturally versatile material. As a result, no two patios will ever look alike. Also, due to the latest technology in stamping tools and coloring methods, concrete-poured patios are now more versatile and resourceful than ever before.
Concrete itself can be easily fashioned into almost any shape, therefore enabling you to fully comply with any backyard restrictions in terms of space or implementing any unique curves you may desire. Because of these new coloring techniques and stains, you can achieve virtually any shade of color you can imagine, whether your overall goal is to correspond with your home's facade or to perfectly coordinate with your landscape.
Eco-Friendly and Environmentally Conscious
Incorporating a new concrete patio over a trendy wood deck will instantly eliminate the need for the back-breaking maintenance that typically involves using sealers and wood stains, not to mention how much lumber is saved.
Affordable and Low Maintenance
Compared to keeping up the appearance of a wood deck, natural stone, or individual masonry paving pieces, concrete is much affordable and easier to maintain due to its solid, simple surface.
Compared to wood decking, a solid concrete patio is very affordable and saves many hours of time in staining and resealing the surface each year. With concrete, there's no need to worry about wood splinters, wood rot, and termite infestation since these issues simply don't exist with concrete-poured patios.
Today's concrete-based patios offer a wide variety of construction and design options, including unique patterns that include stamping, engraving, stenciling, and exposed aggregate. Although several concrete-based patios are cleverly designed to enhance surrounding outdoor landscapes, you can also choose a design or style that harmonizes well with your interior space in order to seamlessly unite the two together. Concrete is very malleable and can therefore be created to look like a number of other popular materials used for high-end looking patios, such as natural stone, brick, or wood.
In terms of the cost for labor and materials, no other product can compare to concrete. They can easily be created to look like you spent thousands of dollars on your outdoor space, when in fact, it was just a mere fraction of the cost.
