Compared to wooden decks, bricks and paver stones, concrete patios are the clear winner in our opinion. In fact, concrete patio surfaces are more affordable, and you can choose from a wide variety of styles. Not to mention they are easy to maintain, durable and more easily repaired or resurfaced.
Why choose a concrete patio surface?
You can also choose sophisticated designs such as embossing or engraving patterns and logos into the concrete surface to emulate a variety of natural stones from marble to slate. This makes a concrete surface stylish but cost-effective.
Therefore, if you are planning to improve the value of your home, it is important to make a wise decision and ensure that you are maximising your return on investment. Choosing concrete is often a more logical choice because it can have a finish that compliments your home and can be an appropriate fit with your design and backyard landscaping, without the added expense.
Both surfaces must be scrubbed, sanded, and power washed until smooth before you can reseal them. If they are properly maintained, they can last up to 30 years. Although sealant application is far better and more straightforward for concrete compared to wooden decks.
In fact, concrete patios have a distinct maintenance advantage as sealant is only needed once every 3 to 5 years. Wooden decks must be re-stained and resealed annually, which means they will cost more time and money to maintain than a concrete surface. However, it is important to choose the right material for your landscape and design.
