Concrete Patios are a brilliant addition to any home as it creates an extra living space that you can enjoy all year round whilst getting some fresh air and sunshine. Having a patio doesn’t mean having a dull and lifeless area that you don’t enjoy. With all the abilities for customization, we are able to help you create a space that you want to spend your time as well as entertain the friends and family over the festive season.
The use of concrete coloring can help to bring a burst of life to your outdoor area, and help create a seamless transition from your home to your outdoor patio by matching the color scheme. There are a range of different colors available for you to choose from when you decide to have the addition of a patio within your home. There are different shades of greys as well as more colorful options that can suit your personality as well as the style of your home. Our contractors are skilled in creating a consistent level of color so that you don’t have different shades in patches around your patio area.
Another way you are able to customize your outdoor patio is to have a pattern included in the concrete. This can be either in the form of stamping, engraving or textures, each of which will help to create a slip resistant surface when water runs onto your patio. This can help ensure the safety of your friends and family, rather than having a smoother surface which would promote slips and trips often associated with tiles. Our team will gladly speak with you about the different options available.
As a patio is outside your home, it will require sealing to help protect it against stains as well as absorbing too much water during the rainy season. Having a coat of sealer applied on a regular basis can also help to retain the brightness of the concrete color you have selected for your patio. Sealing is a very convenient option if you have a clumsy family member who often spills their coffee or wine, as you will be able to wipe most of it up before it is absorbed. The seal will work best when applied on a regular basis as advised by out skilled contractors to ensure that the protection for your concrete is maintained.
Inevitably over time you will start to have cracks appear in your patio due to its exposure to the outdoor elements such as heat and rain. This will cause contraction and expansion of the concrete and small cracks will appear as concrete is not a flexible material. Our team at Pontiac Concrete are able to provide repair works that match both the color and pattern of your patio for a seamless finish. Our goal is always to provide repairs so perfect that you can hardly tell there was a crack there in the first place.
