Remember, it’s not too late to squeeze in your own residential custom landscaping project this year. And one of the projects you may be considering is installing a new patio. As the air becomes crisp and the leaves change, there is nothing better than being outside with family while the weather is mild. And what better place to do it than your own yard? Spear’s Landscape can’t wait to install a custom patio for you to enjoy. Continue reading our blog as we discuss paver patios vs concrete patios.
Installing either type of patio isn’t something you can do without the proper tools and knowledge, which is why it’s crucial you hire a trusted professional. Especially since each patio type is installed in different ways. A concrete patio consists of a frame made from wood and rebar. Once the frame has been established, the concrete is then poured into the frame to create the surface.
Installing a paver patio is done after the land has been excavated. Next, the base layer is leveled. Once this step is done, sand and the pavers are next. Understanding each of these steps confidently will ensure your paver patio is designed to last.
Many are shocked to find there isn’t much of a difference in price between concrete and paver patios. In most cases, they cost almost the same. But it’s important to know that the range in price of pavers is greater since there is a wide variety to choose from. In the end, it often comes down to personal preference and not installation cost when picking out a new patio.
If you’re looking for a patio with lower maintenance, a paver patio is the way to go. Should you have issues with a single paver, you can replace it. And if you have cracks or chipping with a concrete slab patio, you’ll have to rip out the entire surface and replace it. If you’re looking for a patio option that will last, paver patios, on average, last almost twice as long as concrete patios.
After diving in and breaking down the two patio options, both turn out to be great choices when extending your outdoor entertainment space.
