Now, with many different material options available to create your patio, you may be wondering what is the best choice for your patio vision and your pocket. The most popular material being used today are both concrete and pavers. So why concrete? Well, I’ll tell you. Below you will find the benefits of installing a concrete patio vs. a paver patio.
Concrete Patios vs. Paver Patios
Style- Concrete is such a versatile material. You can guarantee your new concrete patio will look nothing like your best friend’s back yard. Not only can you form concrete to any shape, concrete can also be stained, stamped, engraved, and stenciled. With a concrete patio or pool area, you have the opportunity to let your unique style come through as you design your patio to your liking.
Durability & Maintenance- Concrete is highly durable and is easy to maintain. Concrete can withstand a wide range of weather conditions and is easier to care for because of it’s solid surface. Paver patios, on the other hand, are placed with space between each individual stone. This allows weeds to sprout through and who really wants more weeds? Also, since paver patios are placed individually this can result in an uneven patio surface.
Cost- Concrete patios can save you money and also add value to your home. As stated before, concrete patios can be styled in so many different ways. So, instead of spending the extra money on a stone, brick, or other paver patio options, you can easily design your concrete patio to look the same as an expensive piece of stone.
So, what are you waiting for? You deserve a place to relax, have fun, and enjoy the spring and summer seasons ahead. Your concrete patio is waiting for you to design and enjoy!
