Back yards are being transformed into luxurious extensions of the house. They’re the new favorite room to relax, entertain, and cook. And the heart and soul of the backyard resort area is the concrete patio. Concrete patios cost significantly less than patios made of stone, brick, or tile and combined with the wide array of patterns and colors available, they are an increasingly popular choice for homeowners. Concrete used for patios can be shaped, molded, stamped, and colored. Finishes range from smooth, brushed, swirled, and scored. The possibilities are endless and durability is unsurpassed.
