There are many factors to consider when choosing between concrete and stonework for your new patio. In this article, we will go over the benefits of each option and help you decide which is best for you. 


Stonework offers a timeless look that never goes out of style, which is why many people love it as an addition to their home. But there are a few factors that set it apart from its most common alternative, concrete. 

  •  Stone and pavers are much less likely to crack or need repair
  •  Stone and pavers tend to be more expensive
  •  Stone and pavers are more labor intensive to install
  •  Stone and pavers are easier to up-keep
  •  Stone and pavers are better suited for varying climates and temperature changes
  •  Stone and pavers tend to last a long time
  •  Stone and pavers come in varying sizes, shapes, and designs

Overall, there aren’t many downsides to installing stones or pavers opposed to concrete, and the biggest deciding factor between the two usually comes down to price. If you decide to go with custom stonework, you can be sure that it will be a beautiful addition to your home or business.
