The Top Benefits of a Stamped Concrete Patio
The warm months are a time of family get-togethers so you want your home to look nice when you have people over. While your home already looks fine, there is just a certain something that it’s missing. As you flip burgers on a grill that’s slightly leaning due to it sitting on the grass, it hits you (realization, not the grill).
You need a patio. You decide to head over to the nearest store to look at materials and notice, there is a lot to choose from, however, the stamped concrete is looking really good because the price is low. To help you decide if cheap is the way to go, here are all the benefits of having a stamped concrete patio.
1. It’s Versatile
Even if everyone on your block had a stamped concrete patio, yours would still look way different than anyone else’s. This is because the concrete is poured when it’s being installed so there a ton of things that you can do with it in terms of patterns and colors.
No matter what you go with, the end result will look like the concrete has just always been a part of your yard design. It looks so natural!
2. Super Durable
If you know your patio is going to see a lot of traffic then stamped concrete will be the best idea for you. It can withstand the weight of your furniture and people without caving eventually.
While other patio materials will eventually crack due to weather, the concrete will not.
3. Easy Maintenance
If you want to keep your patio from chipping or losing its unique color than you need to get it resealed every other year. That’s the only maintenance required for the material.
Other than that just sweep it off when it needs it and keep it looking clean. It’s so easy.
The reason why the price tag on stamped concrete is so low isn’t that the quality is lacking. The installation is simple to the point of saving you tons of money in labor cost.
Also, if your brain is leaning toward getting a more expensive stone material because you like the pattern, go with the stamped concrete instead. You can literally have the pattern mimicked for way less.
5. Environmentally Friendly
Installing concrete instead of using other wood materials does a few favors for the environment. Wood requires you to use harsh chemicals to clean, stain, and seal the wood on a normal basis or it will wear out. On the other hand, concrete has to be sealed but only once every few years.
Is a Stamped Concrete Patio Right for Your Home?
Given all of this have you decided if a stamped concrete patio would be right for your home? You’ll save time and money on installation and maintenance, it’s better for the environment, and it will look great for years to come. It’s a no brainer when you think about.
