Stamp(ing) and Pouring Out The Competition
A stamped concrete patio mixes sand, water, cement and gravel to produce industry-leading textured textile on the market, as it can resemble wood, flagstone and brick amongst others. If you are questioning if it is cheaper to build a deck or pour concrete, pouring concrete is the cheaper option. Along with being more cost-effective, concrete patios are much less slippery in the wintertime, less overall maintenance as they do not need to be power washed and stained every couple of years, a deck will have a shorter lifespan as they can fade and discolour from use and weather and a deck will have weight restrictions where the concrete patio does not.
Stamped Concrete comes in a variety of different colours and textures and it is prepared onsite, meaning that you can change the shade of colour right until the moment it is poured. This sort of patio textile appears a tad more luxurious than poured, solid concrete but it also needs a little more care and treatment over the years as they can eventually crack. A concrete patio is no thicker than 6 inches, where an average is anywhere between 3-4 inches high.
What’s It Going To Cost Me?
The stamped, or paved concrete patio method costs anywhere from $8 to $12 per square foot, and it is 3 times more expensive than regular poured concrete at $3 to $6 per square foot.
A poured concrete patio ranges from $2000 to $4000, where a stamped concrete patio is a little steeper ranging from $3000 to $5200. Where installing a concrete, poured or stamped, a patio can be an investment, there are some that suggest that you can stamp concrete to save from breaking the bank; because stamped concrete needs to be moulded on wet concrete, this method is only properly attainable by a licensed contractor.
Stamped Concrete vs Poured Concrete: So What’s the Verdict?
If you are looking for a long-lasting patio, you should opt for the Stamped Concrete option. Though it is more expensive, it will last you twice as long as the poured concrete option. A stamped concrete patio is less maintenance, supports more weight than poured and it is customizable to suit your exact image.
