Different types of patio material and the appeal of each.

4 Types of Patio Material and their Advantages

When building a patio, or having one built, it is important to have the rightpatio material. The material in question has to not only go with the material that the house is constructed with, but has to be built so that it integrates seamlessly into the house as well as the space.

There are many different types of patio material that one can work with, when building a patio, Following are some of those types, along with the unique advantages of each.

Pavers/Stone

Pavers and stone patio’s are by far the most popular in terms of a decorative patio space.  Everything Outdoors of Tulsa is a Belgard Certified installer of pavers which carry a lifetime warranty.  They come in several sizes and color options.  We get asked all the time about cost from high to low when talking about patios.  The material from cheapest to most expensive is the following:

Concrete  —  lowest

Pavers  —  medium

Flagstone  —  highest

 

Concrete

A concrete patio is the simplest, and often times, the most inexpensive patio material. It is also quite smooth,and is ground finely, which makes for a much smoother floor; ideal for the more delicate tables and chairs.

Flagstone

Flagstone is a naturally colored and hued material which is ideal for a more artistic and alternatively stylish vibe. Make sure to always go for the darker colors, since those will not lose their aesthetic appeal, even after years and years of dirt, grime and weathering.

Gravel

Gravel is an unusual patio material, mostly because it is extremely uneven in terms of surface uniformity, and can be quite difficult to manage when installed in a high traffic area, such as the garden patio.  Gravel type patios are best when you have a drainage problem at your home or business.
