How to Choose Ideal Concrete Patio
Building a concrete patio can be a great way to add entertaining outdoor space to your property and increase its value. A concrete patio could last up to 40 years or more provided it’s installed correctly.
When installing a concrete patio, you want the outcome to suit your needs in terms of intended function, style, color, budget, and other things that you want to achieve from the project.
If you’re new to concrete patio installation, choosing the ideal concrete patio can be overwhelming. At Artistic Concrete Designs, we can help you with all of your concrete patio installation needs. We provide a wide range of concrete installation services, including concrete repair and concrete replacement.
Here are some of the things to consider when choosing an ideal concrete patio:
The most important factor to consider when choosing a concrete patio is the purpose you’ll use it for. Are you looking to build a space for relaxation on summer afternoons? Do you intend to use the space to entertain guests? Having a clear idea of why you want to build a patio will help you choose the right size, location, design, lighting, and other features.
The color of your concrete patio will have a major impact on the character of an outdoor space. The wrong color can make your space feel uninviting. Light colors can be ideal if you want to achieve a sunnier and happier vibe, while grey tones blend well with a wide range of hardscapes. It's a good idea to choose a color that harmonizes with your landscape. If you can't decide which color will blend in with your landscape and home, call a concrete company for advice.
The amount of money you want to spend on building a concrete patio will determine the result you’ll get. The average cost of building a concrete patio can range from $2,363 to $5,400, depending on things like size, labor costs, and additional features. You'll want to work closely with your contractor so that you don't go above budget. At Artistic Concrete Designs, we will listen to your needs and give you an estimate of what your project will cost.
Local Building Codes
Before embarking on building a concrete patio, take time to understand what the local building codes are and how they can affect your project. You don’t want to find yourself on the wrong side of the law for violating building codes or constructing a patio that will later be demolished. Contact your local building department for information on any building codes that should be adhered to and required building permits.
