Many people choose to use cement as their flooring option for garages, driveways, pool decks and outdoor patios. They may even choose cement flooring for their homes or warehouses. One of the benefits of cement is that it is a great alternative in comparison to other floor types, such as brick, wood or stone. It is inexpensive and extremely durable. Cement can be driven over, have heavy objects dragged over it and can experience foot traffic daily without ruining, cracking or becoming worn down. Another benefit of cement is that it is easy to maintain – to clean, you simply hose it down with soap and water, pressure washing it only when necessary.
There are several other benefits to a cement patio. A cement patio can be customized to look however you would like. It can be dyed, stamped, textured, patterned and more. There are endless color options when it comes to dying cement, from grays to browns to blues. You can choose to get a cement patio stamped, or imprinted, to look like almost any other type of material, such as wood or slate, giving your floor a sophisticated look without the cost and maintenance.
Many people choose to use cement outdoors near pool decks. Though cement can become slippery when wet, if you texturize it, it will become more slip resistant, making it a great option for the outdoors. The biggest benefit of a cement patio is that it is versatile – you can do pretty much anything with it. Cement can be formed into various shapes, so if you want a circular patio or hexagonal pool, you can do it. You won’t have to worry about re-staining cement, filling in holes or cracks or resealing it too often, as it doesn’t need regular maintenance.
