Deciding whether or not to install a concrete patio is not an easy decision. While many people will tell you that it’s a “no brainer” these days, some will try to sway you into thinking differently. Let’s take a look at all of the benefits you stand to enjoy when it comes to having a patio.
Style. Yes, you heard that right. Forget about the old, dingy grey backyard slab of yesterday. Today’s modern stylish concrete patios are no longer just what they once were… not, if you have an incredible array of exciting options to add style to your home.
Durability. You can count on the fact that these concrete patios will stand up against any elements your weather throws at it over the years. You can count on them to keep looking great as you age as well as to maintain their original color as you use them year after year. They’ll even last decades if you do not use them regularly (just leave them in the garage). In fact, some patios can even be left out for the winter months!
Maintenance. A concrete patio is a relatively simple installation process that allows you to get a patio done in a matter of a couple hours. No need to hire a contractor and spend thousands of dollars. Simply use a pneumatic paver to chip away at the concrete surface until it’s smooth and level.
Cleanup. Once a year, you can simply take out the paver and use a garden hose to get rid of any excess dirt and grime that might have collected in the holes during the installation process.
Protection from weather. While it is not necessarily possible to protect a concrete patio from the elements the same way you would your outdoor decks, there is no reason why you should overlook the protection afforded by this versatile material. Weatherproofing your patio is just one of the many ways that a concrete surface can give you the advantage over your competitors in your area. Since these patios are typically constructed from a single slab of concrete that does not change color, the protective properties of this material will actually help keep the patio looking nice in even the most extreme of conditions.
Maintenance. As with any other type of surface, concrete surfaces are subject to wear and tear over time. If you have a patio that gets wet in the summer and cold in the winter, this wear and tear can be quite significant. To combat this issue you should make sure that the pool drains out from both sides of the surface, the concrete sealant on the outside and the inside of the walls.
Overall, concrete patios are an easy decision if you want to have a beautiful addition to your home that will increase the value of your home and provide you with a safe place for entertaining guests. With the many options available today to create a patio, these are all reasons to consider adding one to your home.
The most important point about patios is to choose one that works well in your space. Whether you are using the area as a breakfast nook or for outdoor seating, a patio should compliment the room where it is being installed. While there are many different shapes and sizes, the main concern when choosing a patio is that it is large enough to accommodate the number of people that frequent your home. If you have a dining room that seats multiple people, you will want a patio that is large enough to comfortably seat all of them without overcrowding the room.
The overall appearance of a patio is also important. You may decide to purchase a poolside bench that is covered in metal, to make it look like a natural feature in your backyard. A bench with a wooden base that swings back and forth can be a wonderful accent. or you might prefer to purchase an attractive bench that has a more traditional look.
In addition to the appearance, you also need to think about the style of the patio before making a purchase. If you are looking for a deck that is more rustic, choose a bench that is designed to look similar to a porch. This can easily be achieved by picking out a design that is carved into the stone of the concrete.
Patios come in a variety of colors and styles, so look around to find the one that best fits your personality. While they can cost hundreds of dollars, they are an investment in your home that will pay off handsomely.
If you need to repair or replace your concrete, or your concrete has broken or failed, we can help in two ways. We can demolition your existing concrete, pour a new slab, and smooth it out. Or, the second option would be to repair the concrete depending on the level it has deteriorated. Due to concrete needing to be above 52 degrees to set and form correctly, we would need to schedule a time during the day. Our team works fast to make sure the concrete is set while it is still playable. Contact Concrete Gastonia for a unique, custom, concrete solution for your home or business.
“We purchased an older home in Gastonia. The land use to be an old golf course that went under. Our landscaping is amazing, but our driveway and sidewalk were old, cracking, and just did not look right. We called Concrete Gastonia to install a new driveway, sidewalk, and connecting patio. I can now fit all of my cars in my driveway. They did a great job” – Willy and Suzie Smith
We were doing some home construction and had a dumpster delivered. The driver of the huge truck failed to listen to our instructions and placed the dumpster on our driveway, crushing it. Concrete Gastonia was prompt, a great value, and had our driveway repaired a week later. We highly recommend them” -Terry and Bob McGirr
“We needed a swimming pool poured. We are now retired and wanted to finally treat ourselves now that the kids are gone. Concrete Gastonia poured our custom swimming pool exactly how we wanted it. ” – Jesse and Michelle Poble
