Concrete has long been used for patios because of the durability that concrete offers. Concrete is a low-maintenance building material that doesn’t scratch easily, making it perfect to hold any outdoor furniture and provide grip for walking and relaxing on. Furthermore, concrete can be installed into virtually any shape or size that you have in mind. This is especially important for those that have smaller outdoor spaces to accommodate patios, or those that want their concrete patios integrated into a deck, stairs, or another lounging space.
Concrete Patio Installation
Concrete patio installation is similar to how we would install any other concrete surface around the exterior of your home. First, we mark off the space that is being converted into a patio, then we excavate any part of it that needs to be resurfaced, followed by framing and pouring the concrete accordingly. As with any concrete project, the drying time is especially important to ensuring your concrete has long-lasting results. For this reason, we recommend installing concrete during the drier and warmer months, or when rain is less likely to interfere with the drying time.
Benefits Of A Concrete Patio
The benefits of a concrete patio include more than just a durable surface that you can enjoy for many years to come. Using concrete for your patio project means investing in a strong material that can withstand all kinds of weathering elements, such as water, heat, and fluctuating temperatures. What’s more, concrete is also relatively low maintenance, which is great for someone that doesn’t want to spend too much time cleaning or taking care of their concrete surfaces over time. When you do need to clean the concrete, a simple rinse or power washing is enough to do the trick.
Customizing Your Concrete Patio
Want to customize your concrete patio into more than just a generic flat surface? Why not consider staining or stamping your concrete? Many clients opt for a degree of customization on their patio in order to enhance its appearance and to help it complement other exteriors, such as the landscaping, an outdoor kitchen, a deck area, or even a pool. We want your patio to be place where you can relax and enjoy the space with ease - so, what better way to do this than with some custom concrete that welcomes you with comfort?
As mentioned previously, many appreciate how low maintenance concrete is compared to other outdoor building materials. When concrete is serving as your main surface material on the patio, it can easily prevent staining from outdoor meals, can be scrubbed clean from pet messes, and doesn’t succumb to weather changes as easily as some other materials might. This means that if your patio is exposed to warmer temperatures, UV rays, and water, you can trust that it will hold up just as well and without any damage. Concrete is also fire resistant, making it the perfect surface to build your outdoor fire pit on, barbeque on, or install a grill or outdoor kitchen on.
