Here are the main ways decorative concrete offers real benefits in terms of performance, cost savings, and aesthetics:
- Reduced long-term maintenance and care
Over time, other surface materials such as pavers can become loose or settle, resulting in tripping hazards. Decorative concrete’s advantage is that it never needs resetting or replacing. It eliminates tripping hazards for parks, resorts, etc.
- Less labor intensive than other surface materials
Some installers find it more economical to pour concrete and apply a pattern than to haul and place individual paving stones by hand.
- Increased longevity
Your initial investment in decorative concrete is only part of the total equation. Concrete lasts longer than other materials, is durable in nearly every type of environment, and holds up better to traffic and wear.
- Requires less maintenance
Decorative concrete requires minimal maintenance than most other paving materials which can add up to big savings over the surface’s lifetime.
- Increases resale value of property
Decorative concrete adds instant curb appeal and aesthetic value to a property. You can maximize the return on your investment by choosing decorative concrete over plain concrete.
