BeautyIf you still think concrete has to be gray and dull, it’s time to take another look. The material can be made into a rainbow of hues and finished with any number of textures, stamps, engraving or stenciling. One of the more popular choices is a terra cotta shade with an embossed or textured surface, or you could choose a navy hue with a subtle striped pattern to match your home’s exterior. The end result is a concrete patio that’s sharp looking and functional, you’ll want a concrete patio in your front yard, too.
VersatilitySpeaking of all the different appearances concrete can take on, there is another way the material proves its versatility: It be poured in just about any shape you can imagine and easily forms curves and bends in places that would be difficult to reach with other building materials. It can even mimic other hardscape materials such as bricks, pavers and natural stone.
Eco FriendlyConcrete is long lasting, which makes it an ideal choice for the environmentally conscience homeowner. You won’t be using natural resources such as trees to create your outdoor floor, and you don’t have to worry about the harsh chemicals that are spread each year that you have to restain and reseal your deck. Concrete’s longevity also means you won’t have to replace the patio nearly as often as you would a wooden deck.
DurabilityDid we mention a stamped concrete patio can last for decades? It will withstand all kinds of weather, including storms, snow and constant rain. It’s not damaged by the sun, even in the hottest climates. Wood and other softer materials just won’t hold up as long in these types of circumstances. You can scrape your patio furniture over the surface without scratching it or drop a wine glass without nicking the surface.
Low MaintenanceWith minimal maintenance, you’ll be enjoying spending time on your patio for years to come. Because it is a solid surface, you won’t have to waste hours cleaning the grout or refilling the joints as you would with paver stones. Plus, there is the added benefit that you won’t have to worry about a loved one tripping and falling on uneven stones. Concrete is impervious to insects and rot, unlike wooden decks. If something spills on a patio, you can simply hose it off and allow Mother Nature to dry it off.
A stamped concrete patio can enhance the value and functionality of your home. When you’re ready for a new outdoor space, it should be on your list of considerations.
