Concrete Patios

Despite stiff competition from wood decks, the concrete patio is gaining in popularity as an essential element in today’s backyards. According to a survey conducted by the National Association of Home Builders in 2012, concrete is the most popular patio material in the country. In seven of nine geographical regions identified in the study, poured concrete is the most commonly used outdoor surface material in luxury-home construction coming in ahead of concrete pavers and natural stone. With more decorative options than ever before, concrete patios are attracting homeowners who want an outdoor surface that offers the ultimate in design versatility. Concrete patios also have the edge when it comes to durability and low maintenance.

Concrete Pavers

The use of concrete pavers, often referred to as paving stones, is growing rapidly on both commercial and residential construction projects. Interlocking pavers form a patterned surface which can be put into service immediately. Pavers are manufactured in various textures and colors. A big benefit of pavers is that they can be removed and re-installed, which reduces future service interruptions.
