Concrete Patios Richmond BC
One of the most common materials in patios are wood. While wood patios are often very versatile, they have major downsides. For example, they need to be regularly finished or painted to avoid discoloration. Also, with the kind of heavy rains we get in BC, you can expect splintering at first then wood rot as the years go by, not to mention the kinds of creepy crawlies that love to take advantage of that rot.
Another popular option is stone and while beautiful, come with a hefty price tag. Add to that weeds that easily grown in the crevices and uneven surfaces over time and you can see why these may not be the best options for the long term.
With all these disadvantages, it isn’t hard to see why concrete patios are in such high demand. When compared to other materials, both long-term costs and maintenance are much more reasonable. Also, with a wide range of textures, patterns and colors, we’re sure to help you have the patio of your dreams!
Concrete Patio Installation and Maintenance
The first step we would need to do is find out what exactly you have in mind for your patio. Whether you want a more traditional installation (such as with broom finishes or exposed aggregate) or something more unique, we’re ready and willing to accommodate. For example, you can have stamped concrete that can imitate other materials such as brick and cobblestone without the additional cost and hassle they typically entail. Once we come to an agreement as to your perfect patio, installation typically takes place in days instead of weeks that you’d expect from other materials.
Concrete is one of the easiest materials to maintain. In most cases, cleaning just involves a broom or hose, maybe a bit of occasional power washing in some cases. Depending on the type of finish you decide on, you may need additional treatments in the future. If that’s the case, we will show you how you can easily do this yourself or make arrangements to perform this for you.
Clearly, there’s a reason why so many homeowners choose concrete patios and why so many choose Richmond Concrete to install them. With our years of experience, we’re more than happy to make a great addition to your home that will last for decades to come.
