Patios in general provide several benefits. We’re rather impartial to a good stamped concrete patio.

The first benefit is that it can increase the value of your home. According to realtors, having a patio can make your home more attractive to potential buyers. In today’s market, this makes a great selling point to attract qualified buyers when selling your home.

A second benefit is that it is a great way to expand your outdoor living space. Unlike decks, which are typically elevated and constructed of wood, patios are most commonly made from a slab of concrete. This means that they can be built at ground level and be easily extended to create more space for outdoor entertaining or relaxation.

As a part B to the second benefit, having a concrete slab at ground level improves accessibility. A deck can be inaccessible to our older friends and family members, or those with mobility impairments. A deck provides a great outdoor space to entertain for everyone.

A third benefit is that installing a patio can be a simply DIY project you can do in a weekend and get the whole family involved. In the Army, we used to call this “mandatory fun”. With the right tools and instructions, even the most inexperienced homeowners can install a patio themselves. This can save you money on installation costs that you can then invest into creating a patio and outdoor oasis.

A stamped concrete patio adds texture, dimension, and breaks up the monotony of a simple poured slab. Installing a patio has several benefits and it’s one of our favorite things to do. Let us know if you’d rather DIY a patio or hire the professionals. We’d love to know!
