Stamped concrete is a beautiful choice when it comes to patio materials. Edward’s Lawn & Home is experienced in installing this lovely type of patio in Maryland and is happy to help you determine if it is indeed the best option for you. If you are wondering if a stamped concrete patio is right for you, see these benefits below!
The beauty of stamped concrete is more affordable than you think. It is less expensive than paver or natural stone patios, and installation is less costly as well. Although you can have the look of pavers or natural stones, you don’t have to pay the price for it.
A stamped concrete patio offers infinite style and color possibilities. It can take on countless textures for better friction, including cobblestone, flagstone, and tile. You can also mix and match colors to create a beautiful pattern or complement or match your home. Some will have a beautiful border around theirs or a medallion.
A stamped concrete patio can also withstand heavy traffic and the elements for decades without deteriorating or cracking. Since ancient Roman times, concrete has proved itself tried and true, and today’s poured concrete is just as tough. Although stamped concrete’s greatest risk is forming cracks, proper installation will help to prevent it.
That being said, installation for stamped concrete patios is easy and swift. While creating a stamped concrete patio takes strategy, it does not take much time or labor compared to pavers or natural stones, which require laying down many pieces just right. This ease of installation will help you cut costs.
Lastly, you can enjoy your beautiful concrete patio without having to worry too much about its maintenance needs. One can sweep and spray down the patio when needed for regular cleaning, but you will need to put in some elbow grease if you have to remove a stain. One should use a proper concrete patio cleaner for the job. Also, it is best to seal the concrete every 2-3 years to protect it against moisture and debris.
