If you’re debating between a wooden patio and a cement patio for your home, there are many things that you should consider. In many cases, cement patios offer multiple advantages over wood. Cement patios have a variety of design options available that can be uniquely constructed to fit the shape of your backyard. The initial cost of a typical concrete patio is also far less than that of a wooden deck. Both types of outdoor patios need to be properly maintained in order to maximize the longevity of the surface against the damage caused by harsh weather.
The Advantages of a Cement Patio
The sealant application process is far simpler for protecting concrete when it is compared with wooden decks. Concrete patios pose a distinct maintenance advantage over wooden decks because they can be protected by using a sealant approximately once every 2-3 years. Owners of wooden decks will have to constantly check for rot and mold, replace damaged wood, and must have the wood restrained annually. Unlike a wooden deck, a concrete patio does not have to be refinished. Cement also offers a wide range of sophisticated patio design options, such as embossing or engraving patterns and logos into concrete surfaces. Finally, Concrete patios have twice the life of wood decking and brick pavers.
