Patio Material Choices

There are a lot of materials out there, but the most common patio materials include:

  • Patio Pavers: Pavers have come a long way from the small pink or gray squares you may remember.You now have unlimited options for colors, textures, patterns, and shapes. Pavers are easy to install, easy to repair, and even easier to replace. They can even be made to look like other materials such as cut stone, brick, or cobblestones.
  • Brick: If you’re going for a classic look, then brick is a perfect choice. It’s a sturdy and durable option, plus it’s easy to match it up to the brick that is already around your home. Brick works in both rustic and formal settings, as well as traditional and modern environments.
  • Concrete: Concrete is very versatile, and it’s adaptable to almost any backyard environment. It’s easy to maintain and clean and comes in a wide range of shapes, colors, textures, and patterns. Choose from smooth, brushed, stamped, scored, or painted concrete.
  • Flagstone: Many homeowners choose flagstone for patios because they like the size of the large flat slabs. They can be up to three inches thick, and are known for their irregular and unpredictable shapes. Types of flagstone include quartzite, sandstone, bluestone, and limestone.
  • Cut Stone: Cut stone is often cut into squares or rectangles to create a more uniform, clean look. It contains smooth surfaces, square edges, and can be grouped in even rows or spaced apart. Common types of cut stones include granite, sandstone, marble, phyllite, slate, and travertine.
