Selecting the correct patio materials will ensure that your new patio is built to last and stands the test of time. With the right materials, you can also ensure that your patio is safe and can withstand plenty of use. Whether you are playing with the kids, relaxing in the sunshine, or entertaining friends, you want to know that you have a solid foundation that you can rely on.

At Stephens & Smith Construction Company, Inc., our concrete contractors have been working in the concrete industry since 1971, helping countless Lincoln homeowners to build their perfect patios. Concrete has proven to be the best material for patios time and time again. Compared with gravel, pavers, flagstone, tile and brick, concrete patios truly shine. Below, our concrete specialists at Stephens & Smith Construction Co., explore just some of the reasons that concrete truly is the perfect patio construction material.

Let’s take a look at why concrete is the superior choice when it comes to patio builds.

Easy To Maintain

You only have to build your patio once, but you will have to maintain it for many years to come. Concrete patios are low maintenance, which means they will continue to look great with minimal effort from a Lincoln homeowner. Here at Stephens & Smith Construction Company, Inc., our concrete contractors recommend that you sweep your patio to remove debris from time to time and powerwash it once every six months to remove any heavier debris. Maintaining your concrete patio is straightforward and won’t add too much to your household maintenance chores.

Durable And Resilient

Naturally, your patio will be located outdoors, which means you need a material that is tough and capable of standing up to the elements experienced in Lincoln, NE. Concrete is durable and is a unique material in that it becomes stronger over time. Another advantage to concrete over other materials is that it is not eroded easily by the weather and heavy foot traffic. With its resilience and durability, fewer repairs to your patio will need to be performed by your Lincoln concrete patio builder. This allows you as the homeowner to save time, money and hassle.

Fire Resistant

While with wooden decking, there is a risk of fire, with a concrete patio, this is one thing you won’t need to worry about. Our concrete specialists always recommend that you follow fire safety protocols at home, especially if you are grilling outdoors. With a concrete patio, you can enjoy cooking outdoors and hanging around the fire pit with your friends and family with more peace of mind.

Concrete Is The Perfect Choice For Your New Patio Space

Concrete is, without a doubt, the best choice for any outdoor patio. In addition to the points above concrete is also affordable and allows you to be flexible in your design and match your design aesthetic with ease.
