Any time you make a decision to alter your property you know that it is going to include an investment of funds. The size of that investment, however, does not need to break the bank. You have the option of going with materials that are both affordable and durable- and that’s where concrete comes into play.
JLC Martinez Concrete, a Sacramento, Elk Grove, Galt, Lodi, Stockton, Lathrop, Tracy, Manteca, and Modesto area team of residential concrete contractors loves to talk about why this amazing building material is a cost effective solution to your outdoor project.
Low Installation Cost
Pavers, brick, stone- we love and work with them all, but let’s face it, they’re expensive and not for everyone. A concrete installation, whether it’s with a broom finish or stamped, will come out much less expensive than many other materials. Yes, it does require professional service (and a license!), but it is very straightforward and cost effective in comparison to the other stuff. In addition, when you bring a concrete mixer or a pump in, you are pouring a large area and covering a lot of square footage in a short amount of time. Compare this to a process laying something down brick by brick or paver by paver and you’ll understand why labor costs plunge when working with concrete. It’s often the most affordable solution when all is said and done.
Concrete is going to last you. It’s not unusual to see structures 35-40-50 years old and still looking solid. With proper reinforcement, either with 3/8 rebar or half inch rebar or concrete wire mesh, your concrete will resist from cracking and hold even your heaviest toys.
Costs related to maintenance and maintaining a concrete surface will also be less. No replacements. No repair work on the wood or weeding between pavers. Make sure to contract an experienced concrete contractor who knows what they’re doing during an installation and let the material do the rest of the work.
Maintenance is a Breeze
Other than resealing stamped concrete every few years you really don’t have anything to worry about with your concrete. Give it a good power wash every now and then and take care of it by staying on top of fresh spills or stains. Protect your pocket and go with low-maintenance concrete.
