You cannot go wrong by pouring a plain slab of concrete, but if you would like to add a little texture or a little bit of a pattern, certain techniques can be applied while it is curing. When you are laying down cement for tile, you can choose a uniform, grid-like design, or be creative and use different shapes and textures for your concrete patio.
With many decorative finishes, concrete patios appeal to homeowners looking for a landscaped surface that has limitless design potential. While many concrete patios are designed to compliment an outdoor landscape, some homeowners opt for a concrete patio style that compliments their indoor living spaces, creating a surface that seamlessly integrates with interior furnishings. When designing a traditional concrete patio (also know as broom finished), you have many options available to you due to the ease of use concrete affords.
Below are some of the most common reasons our customers choose concrete for their patio projects.
- less design limitations
- ease of use
- quicker to completion
When designing your dream patio using concrete, you’re not held back with some of the other constraints you have to take into consideration with other building materials. You can view all of our available concrete services here for more information.
Quite similar to a traditional concrete patio, stamped concrete differs in one major way. Stamped concrete patios include a texture that is added to the newly poured concrete to give it an entirely different, and more premium feel. Stamped concrete patios can be designed in many different textures including natural stone patterns, brick, etched patterns, wood and more. Additionally, stamped concrete can be dyed to offer more customization to ensure you’re able to bring your dream for your backyard patio to life just the way that you envisioned it.
Just as with the Traditional Concrete patio options, stamped concrete includes all the same great benefits of working with concrete as a base for you backyard concrete patio project this summer.
