Benefits of a Concrete Deck

If you are thinking of enhancing the exterior of your home, perhaps you should consider having a concrete deck installed. It is a great outdoor living area design that can be added to virtually any space, any style and on any size of property. It is also a great way to increase your entertaining space and offers a beautiful transition from the steps of your home into the surrounding yard. Here are some of the top benefits of a concrete deck.

  • Affordable – The cost of installation is lower than that of installing a similar sized wooden deck. Additionally, there are almost no maintenance requirements, keeping the long-term costs significantly lower than decks.
  • Endless Design Options – One of the greatest benefits of having a concrete deck installed is the endless decorative concrete designs–stamped concrete that will resemble the appearance and texture of costly exterior finishes such as slate, granite, or brick. It can be built in almost any shape, size or style and can be situated in virtually any location. When creating a concrete deck design, options can include multiple levels, steps, curved edges, seating and more.
  • Minimal Construction Constraints – Concrete decks can be constructed in areas that lack uniform grading or those that do not come in contact with the surrounding landscaping. They can be installed in almost any space with few constraints. Other amenities that are also easily added are outdoor kitchens, built-in benches, pergolas and more.
  • Low or No Maintenance Requirements – Concrete decks are a maintenance free outdoor living area. They also outlast a wood deck and can be enjoyed for many years. Unlike wood decking, there is no need for staining or painting to be done periodically. And unlike a patio that is built directly on the ground, there are no issues with weed growth. Typically, occasional cleaning is necessary to keep the patio looking beautiful and keeping it free from mold or mildew.
