What To Consider When Planning A Patio...
Q. What do you intend to use the patio for?
This may sounds like a silly question, but it is an item to consider for choosing proper material. Do you do a lot of entertaining? Do you have small children and animals running around? For example, if you have small children, a quartz finish paver stone, may not be the best option as they stain easily.
Q. What furniture setup are you planning?
Planning a patio poolside? Do you realize for each lounge chair at least 4' x 9' should be allotted for comfortable use. A 48" round dining table with 4 chairs, fits comfortably within a 10'6" square/round patio. Reference our guide below for more measurements:
Q. How much maintenance time are you willing to spend?
Stamped concrete, although beautiful, requires annual sealing. Concrete on the other hand, is easily cleaned when dirty. Wood, although beautiful, is high maintenance unless investing in bamboo or mahogany, which are on the higher cost scale. Pavers these days are the most popular as the majority of styles require little maintenance.
