Why Invest In A Concrete Patio For Your Home

When it comes to replacing your old patio or building a new one, there are tons of materials you have to decide between. Those materials can range anywhere from wood, to concrete, to stone, or even composite. We are here to tell you that the best investment for your new patio is concrete!

When compared to other materials, concrete gives many distinct advantages. Those advantages include durability, easy maintenance, and adds better appeal to your home.


Concrete has stood the test of time and can last over 30 years if maintained properly! In comparison, wood decks typically only last 10-15 years depending on the type of wood chosen and if you keep up with the rigorous maintenance schedule. Concrete also stands up to the test of weather. Concrete patios can withstand sub-freezing temperatures, pouring rain, and blizzarding snow. Unlike stone, which can become dislodged or cracked due to extreme weather.

Easy Maintenance

Of all the materials available for patio installation, concrete is by far the easiest to maintain. When you get a concrete patio poured, make sure a sealer is applied. Sealer protects the concrete from freeze-thaw, road salts, stains, and more. The great thing about concrete sealer is it doesn’t need to be resealed for at least 3 years. Other patio materials may need to be resealed a year or even 6 months after installation. A concrete patio can also be cleaned much easier than wood or stone. All you need is a hose, broom, or power washer! Since concrete is so durable, it can withstand any scrubbing or power washing it may need.

Extra Appeal To Your Home

If you were to install a wood or composite deck, there are only a few design options to choose from. When it comes to installing a concrete patio, the options are endless! There are so many different concrete patio ideas to choose from, we will just name a few: 


  • Stamped Concrete Patio: If you like the look of wood or stone, but love the durability and low maintenance concrete offers, you can always get a wood plank or flagstone stamp! This is a great alternative and looks almost the same.  If you want to go with something completely out of the box there are tons of different concrete stamps including ashlar slate, cobblestone, brick, and seamless slate. 


  • Colored Concrete: Colored concrete gives you the option to put your own personal touch into your new concrete patio. If you don’t want to commit to a full-color base, you can always go with a color release sealer that contrasts with the existing concrete. 

Different Concrete Shapes: The beauty of using concrete compared to wood or composite is that your new patio can be almost any shape you want it to! Whether that is a circle, oval, rectangle, or even an oblong shape, concrete can do it all.
