Using Stamped Concrete vs Patio Pavers for Outdoor Living Spaces | Southbury, Danbury, CT

Every facet of your residential or commercial property should be considered an investment including your landscape.

When you are in the process of selecting materials for your outdoor patio or walkway, you want to choose materials that will stand the test of time, without the need for additional maintenance, visually appealing, and within your desired budget. In this article, we will examine the differences between using stamped concrete versus patio pavers for your next exterior home improvement project.

Stamped Concrete versus Patio Pavers

Many property owners will choose stamped concrete because of it’s special texture and disparity. It will usually make a stronger first visual impression because of the fact that it is capable of emulating more expensive materials such as slate and flagstone.

However, other property owners would select pavers when constructing their new patio or walkway. Many consider pavers to be a more visually appealing option and the fact that it is available in a wide array of textures, colors, and contours, makes it a more convenient choice. Paver stones will offer a greater level of flexibility during the design and construction process, which will allow you to customize the size and layout of your outdoor living space or walkway.

Stamped Concrete & Pavers Maintenance and Upkeep

If you are installing stamped concrete into your landscape, once the construction has been complete, you will need an additional four to five days to allow it to cure before you can begin utilizing it. Stamped concrete will be susceptible to cracks over the coarse of time due to seasonal weather elements and settlement.

Contrarily, if you are installing pavers, it will be able to handle foot traffic instantly after installation and will typically require less ongoing maintenance, compared to stamped concrete. Since each component is comprised of sections that are interlocked with one another, there is less damage that can occur due to heavy pressure and soil expansion. Each piece is more indestructible and durable than stamped concrete.

Creating a beautiful and functional outdoor living area or walkway on your property is a great way to increase the curb appeal and market value of your property. We hope that this article will assist you in planning your next exterior home improvement project.
