Patios are a great place to gather, whether it’s for your morning coffee with your partner or a family barbecue to celebrate a holiday. They bring everyone together, and can even raise the property value of your home. If you don’t have a patio, or you have one that needs a little TLC, now is the time to act. We’ve got some reasons to choose concrete over other types of patio. Keep reading to find out why we think it’s best, and visit our website for more information on our residential services.
When choosing a deck for their home, most often homeowners are choosing from concrete, wood or composite materials. Many factors go into deciding which one would be best for your family.
When looking at startup costs, concrete patios are pricier than their alternatives, coming in ahead of composite and wood, respectively. However, their long-term care costs are lower. If you have the extra money to spend on the concrete now, it will be a worthwhile investment for the future.
Additionally, this project can be hard to do yourself. If you’re a novice homeowner and still want to do the job yourself, composite might be a better fit for you. These tiles are often made of sawdust and plastic fibers that can snap together, making it easy to assemble. However, expert contractors are here to help with your concrete installation and ensure you get a beautiful final product that will last for years to come.
Concrete patios prevent most critters from making their home in and around your deck. While wood and composite decks leave gaps that unwelcome visitors can make their homes in, concrete sits directly on the ground, leaving it unable to be penetrated by rodents or bugs. It also requires low maintenance over time, unlike wood, which needs to be repainted/restained and resealed almost yearly in hot climates.
