Concrete Patio Vancouver
Concrete Patio Installation
You have a few options when it comes to the materials like wood, different types of stone and concrete for your outdoor patio. Concrete however, is usually the best choice as it is usually less expensive compared to other materials and doesn't come with as many issues. Because we get a lot of rain here in Vancouver (#raincouver) wooden patios can become splintered which in turn, can give you splinters on your hands and feet. Organic materials such as wood always have the risk of rotting and becoming homes for creepy crawlies as well. Patios that are made of different types of stones or slate can become much more expensive compared to concrete due to material costs. These types of materials are prone to grass and weed growing between the cracks which will just lead to another maintenance chore for you and your family.
Concrete is the best material to build a patio with as it has a relatively inexpensive material cost as well as being very durable and versatile. It can withstand what mother nature throws at it very well and compared to a stone patio, concrete lasts much longer and is cheaper as well. Concrete can actually be manipulated to look like any type of brick or stone as well by coloring and stamping it. This gets you the best of both worlds as you get the strength and durability of concrete but with the aesthetics of other stones such as brick, slate, or cobblestone.
Maintenance for a concrete patio is quite straight forward. When cleaning, a quick hose down or a light pressure wash followed by some soap, and a push brush will do most of the work. Once that is done, giving your patio a quick rinse will do the trick.
