Wooden Deck or Concrete Patio?
The growing popularity of wooden decks in the past few decades has led to fewer concrete or stone patios being constructed on new and existing homes. However, in recent years, those homeowners who had a wood deck installed have had to consider replacing them because of warped or rotting wood, or they have become tired of having to stain and seal them every few years. Concrete and interlock paver patios are once again becoming popular with consumers as they compare concrete’s versatility, durability and ease of maintenance to other types of building materials.
Concrete can be formed into any shape you wish, and recent advancements in colouring techniques allow you to choose the perfect hue to complement your landscape or home exterior. A concrete patio will provide years of service and rarely requires more than a hose or a broom to keep it looking great.
