The Experts at BCP Concrete, Inc. Weigh In
A well-designed patio is an aesthetically pleasing space for relaxation and entertainment. To ensure that your new hangout doesn’t end up being more of a headache than a place to relax outdoors, you need to choose the right material and hire an experienced installer. If you’ve decided on concrete, it’s important to know what you should consider when installing a concrete patio.
Handy Checklist to Plan Your Concrete Patio Installation
Choosing your patio material is easy when you ask three key questions:
- Is the material durable?
- Is it long-lasting?
- Is it customizable?
Concrete meets all these criteria and is a great choice for your new patio. However, to ensure that your concrete patio meets expectations, it’s important to plan ahead.
Here is what you should consider when installing a concrete patio:
- Drainage: Adequate drainage is essential to prevent water accumulation on the patio surface. During the installation process, the concrete must be sloped away from your home, directing water to appropriate drainage systems.
- Accessibility: Consider the accessibility of your patio, ensuring easy entry and exit from your home and other outdoor areas. The smooth surface of a concrete patio allows for effortless movement, accommodating individuals with mobility challenges who require assistance.
- Furniture: Plan your patio layout with furniture and seating in mind. Concrete patios can accommodate your grilling station as well as a wide range of outdoor furniture. You can easily place tables, chairs, and loungers, on a sturdy and stable surface for your outdoor relaxation and entertainment needs.
