Your patio floor is exposed to the elements and more traffic than an indoor floor is. That is why it is important to choose a good material for patio flooring that is able to withstand these various negative effects while still looking good. The three main types of patio flooring materials are concrete, decking, and landscaping stones or paver blocks. Let us take a closer look at each of them.
Concrete: Probably the first thing that comes to mind when mentioning concrete is a cold material. However, concrete is neither dull nor cold. Concrete patios can now be made from a wide variety of colors and can be tinted or stamped. One can choose from a wide range of colors, designs, textures, and patterns. There is even the possibility to opt for stamped concrete that looks like wood, brick, or stone. Concrete patios can be made from interlocking pavers or tiles. The options are endless, and apart from all these advantages from an aesthetic point of view, you can still appreciate the fact that the material is going to be durable and resistant for a long time to come.
Decking: Deck patios are another common choice. They give a subtle beauty and elegance to your patio as they are made from wood materials. Cedar and redwood are the most commonly used materials. There are also more affordable options such as composite deck components and vinyl. These are more environmentally friendly and are thus gaining popularity. They are also much easier to maintain than traditional wood options.
Paver blocks: Patios made from paver blocks are also quite common. The paver blocks can come in a wide range of colors, so one will be able to choose the tone that he prefers the most. They are a durable option, and there is also the advantage that such blocks can be used in other constructions, such as for the patio walls and pillars, thus complementing the whole area nicely.
