The decision to start a home improvement project, is a big step for many homeowners. Upgrading your backyard to an outdoor living space with a paver patio is a great way to add value to you home and create a space to relax and entertain outdoors. Your home’s patio can provide the foundation for outdoor living during many months out of the year.
The variety of materials to choose from when building or renovating your patio can be overwhelming. Many of our homeowners ask us which material is best for their patio project. The answer really comes down to personal preference and, of course, budget. There are many different patio options available to homeowners which can create an outdoor living space that looks great and functions well. The top patio materials to use are concrete, natural stone or flagstone, bricks, and pavers. When you choose F&M Contractors you can choose from any of these materials for your patio project. We are experts in patio installations and can provide insight based on your specific project needs. To help you decide which patio building material option to choose for your backyard patio project, we have compiled some information about the four types of patio materials to help you decide which one to use for your space;
Concrete is a traditional option and has a wide array of benefits. Concrete patios offer durability, are able to withstand a wide range of weather conditions, and are ideal for high traffic areas. When you use concrete for your patio you are getting a solid and a long lasting material.
Functional and Budget-Friendly
Concrete installation generally takes less time and labor than some other patio materials, which means it can be finished faster – allowing you to enjoy your backyard and outdoor living space quicker. We strive to complete our concrete patios in a short amount of time and also work to make your patio’s space looking great and have it function well for your family. In addition to taking the shortest time to complete, compared to other patio materials, concrete patios can also be budget-friendly.
If you’re choosing a material for a patio, that’ll look great, function well, can be installed quickly, and is budget-friendly – then choosing concrete could be the right choice for you.
When you want a earthy and timeless appearance, you should choose natural stone for your patio project. When you use natural stone as your patio material, you’ll have the ability to have a wide variety of styles and design configurations. While more expensive than concrete, natural stone patios can be designed and customized specifically to your design tastes and will provide a high-end look and feel.
Durable and Blends with Landscaping
When you choose a natural stone patio you are getting a beautiful, durable material that will stand the test of time. Natural stone will blend into your existing landscaping and is an ideal choice for patios, walkways, and pool surrounds.
While can install brick patios, typically homeowners opt for a more modern approach to patio design and materials. By incorporating brick into the design of a concrete patio or bluestone patio, it helps to add visual interest and can be a nice tie-in to a home which is made of brick, or uses brick as architectural design elements.
Classical and Timeless
Bricks are the idea choice is you want a quaint, timeless, and old-world vibe. They are both neat and rustic which allows you to match the brick from your patio project to your existing landscape and architecture of your home. We can help give you some ideas about how to best incorporate brick into your patio design.
Because of the wide variety of options available, pavers are a great material to use for many types of backyard patio designs. Since pavers come in many shapes, colors, and styles – you’re guaranteed to find one that fits your design tastes and also provide a high-end look and feel. Whether you are looking for a modern or a classic look, pavers can be chosen to suite your specific needs. When you choose pavers as your patio material, you can build a wall to separate areas of your patio which can also function as seating areas and outdoor grilling space – the flexibility of design is only limited by your imagination.
Highly Customizable and Elegant
Pavers allow for a lot of creativity and design. Pavers are highly customizable and come in varying sizes, colors, and styles – enabling you to pick a style that suits your taste. When you use pavers as a part of your choice of patio material you can achieve a truly custom design resulting in an elegant patio and outdoor living space.
While you have many choices in patio materials to choose from, when you choose pavers you are getting the perfect combination of style, strength, and design for your patio project. Pavers are a bit more costly when compared to concrete, but the higher cost needs to be weighed against the customization, elegance, and versatility that pavers offer.
