Are you tired of your wood deck and want to replace it with a new concrete patio? If that’s the case, you may consider going concrete as part of your new year’s resolutions. Yes, your old deck needs replacement, so it may be time to add a concrete touch to your home, right?

While a new concrete patio may not come cheap, it is worth your investment because it will be there to stay and give you good service. Whether you want to enjoy a good time with your family, friends, or guests, this space suits everything. But how much will you need to have a concrete patio?

Well, before looking at the cost, let’s have a peek at the benefits of going concrete.


Did you know that a concrete patio comes with far more benefits than a wood deck? For once, if you’re one of those who love creativity then a concrete patio is a better option since it allows you to get as creative as possible with your backyard landscape. Of course, your terrain is a factor, but with a concrete patio, you can expand it to suit your needs, such as more privacy. A deck won’t allow you to do this since your terrain and house shape determine everything when installing the latter (deck).

In terms of maintenance, wood decks tend to be more involving. With concrete, you don’t need to clean it more often. In fact, the rain may be enough to get the job done. On the other hand, decks need regular power washing and re-staining. Additionally, a concrete patio is more durable, and decks don’t come even close. Who doesn’t know that wood will eventually rot?

Lastly, it is worth noting that affordability is perhaps the primary reason why folks may prefer a concrete patio over a deck. 


Many factors go into determining the cost of a concrete patio. These include the complexities (e.g., pattern, shape, size, thickness) of the project and the amount of material needed to complete it. On top of concrete, you will need other materials, including screws, concrete sealant, edging trowel, gravel, and lumber. And, of course, you have to add labor. 

Note that the more complex the design of your patio is, the higher the cost. That means you will pay more per square foot if you’re installing, say, a custom patio. Will you need staircases, multi-levels, or staining? All these things come at an extra cost.
