Homes in Overland Park and Olathe need stamped concrete patios

It seems that every home in the newer, southern Johnson county, are has the smaller builders grade concrete pad on the back of their home. I’m constantly amazed at how a brand new home, none the less a fairly pricey one, can be left with a little 5×5 patio. This leaves the home owner with no place to grill out or entertain. A stamped concrete patio is the perfect option for many reasons. 1. Stamped Concrete is very low maintenance. Every four years or so it should probably be resealed to maintain a good sheen, or let it fade out if that is what you prefer. This is a very easy process requiring a quick power wash and a couple coats of a high quality solvent based sealer. 2. Stamped concrete is affordable. Compared to stone or even a cedar deck you can’t beat stamped concrete prices. Stamped concrete is generally going to be priced at $10-$12 per square foot for a typical 400 square foot patio. A stone patio such as flagstone is going to run you around $25/ square foot. 3. Stamped concrete is unique. Generally no to stamped concrete jobs are identical…unless you want them to be. Concrete can be colored and shaped to the exact desired requirements of the customer. With the use of many different types of concrete stamps the possibilities are endless. If your considering a patio, you might want to look at stamped concrete.
