Transforming your outdoor space into an oasis without breaking the bank is easy with concrete. Here are some of the pros and cons, costs, and creative ideas to help you decide.

Concrete Patio Considerations

Cement patios are popular home improvement projects because they’re:

  • Inexpensive. Concrete can be a low-cost alternative to popular patio materials like brick or stone.
  • Low maintenance. Concrete requires less upkeep than other materials, which helps save money and time.

The average cost of a concrete patio is around $3,000. The size of the patio, the color, and the finish also play a role in determining the cost. In general, the more complex your patio project is, the pricier it will be.
