If you've ever been BBQing on the back porch and watched your friend’s stool leg fall suddenly through the rotting out wood of what used to be a nice sturdy wood deck, then you've been at the crossroads of wood and concrete before.
When it comes time to decide what material to construct your outdoor entertaining area from, the safest (and least embarrassing) option is always concrete. Here are a few reasons why:
Durability--Kids, pets, and weather are all really rough on wood. A concrete patio is easy to hose sticky or stain inducing messes off of, withstands the abuse of inclement weather, and won't retain any lingering odor if potty training fido goes awry.
Lowest Maintenance Option--Who has time to reseal their wood deck every winter, and hammer back in all the loose nails that have wormed their way up to dangerously high snagging levels? I’m sure you don’t!
Pour it and forget it!
Express yourself--There are really only so many ways you can make wood your own. With concrete, the options are limitless. Between stamping designs, staining, and creative shaping, you can create a look that is just yours. Color combinations are endless, and you aren't just restricted to more natural hues as you are with wood.
Creating an outdoor space to spend time with family and friends can be an adventure in creativity. You are no longer limited to the wood stain colors at the local hardware store, and if your imagination can concoct it, chances are you can create a great entertaining space that not only complements the look of your home, but also represents your own unique style with concrete
