When you’re building a patio, you need to make a lot of choices, such as size, shape, style, and what materials to use.
For the choice of material, concrete, stone, and brick are the most popular options for good reasons, of course.
- Natural stone pavers
For example, if you choose stone for your patio construction, you’re choosing a natural elegance that is durable with a lifespan of 100 years, is absorbent, and naturally filters runoffs. You also have many stone types to choose from, such as flagstone, limestone, cobblestone, etc.
The only downside is natural stone pavers are expensive and require much work in terms of installation.
- Concrete pavers
On the other hand, Concrete pavers work well for a modern look. They are versatile in color, shapes, patterns, and sizes. They are also effortless to install since they are designed to be interlocking.
As far as longevity goes, they are also durable, with a lifespan of about 50 years when given proper care. Economic-wise, concrete pavers are less expensive. In fact, they are the most economical choice.
- Brick pavers
If you’re looking for a classic elegant look that will last for centuries, brick is your bet. They are also designed to interlock in geometric patterns, making them easy to install. They are also easy to maintain compared to concrete and stone.
In essence, all these three materials can make a great patio. The best option for you would depend on:
