Patios are a perfect addition to a home, especially in summer when there are long evenings and plenty of social gatherings. The trick to delighting your guests is to have a patio that is both functional and aesthetically appealing, a place where you can enjoy spending a few minutes to a couple of hours.
One underrated aspect that makes patios desirable is its flooring. Today, Home Pro Exteriors, your deck and roof repair expert, discusses the perfect patio flooring ideal for your purposes.
Patio Flooring Material Choice
As far as materials are concerned, patios are made of almost one of six basic materials. What you do with these materials can give an individual look or personal expression to your outdoor surface. The material you select will be determined by personal preference, patio location, budget, outdoor space size and what’s available in your area.
Brick is another material that has been made in a kiln for thousands of years by firing a mixture of clay and other materials. It’s sturdy, lasts a long time and has a neat, classic look that goes hand in hand with many styles of landscape and architecture. You can even make it match your new roof replacement. Many houses are made of brick or mixed with other materials. It works for features and house styles of both formal and rustic landscape or hardscape.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find anything more versatile and adaptable than concrete. This time-tested material combines a mixture of sand, water, cement and gravel, offering even more possibilities than brick. Concrete can mold and conform to almost any surface shape by using well-constructed forms and is durable and easy to maintain.
Flagstone is another popular choice for patios and front entrances and can be found in different colors and stones depending on the quarry and area you live in. The large, flat stone slabs are usually one to three inches thick and can be identified by irregular shapes. Flagstone has a slightly rough surface that, when wet, can provide good traction.
