Stain & Stamp Patios
Stain & stamp patios (also sometimes referred to as
stain & score patios), became popular in the 1970s as a budget-friendly option for homeowners
to expand their outdoor living spaces. Since then, the options for colors
and finishes have expanded exponentially while still remaining a cost-effective
patio finish for many homeowners.
— Covered Patio Featuring A Stunning Stained Concrete Floor
Paver and stone patios, although beautiful, can be expensive. For homeowners
that want the beauty without the price, concrete is a viable alternative.
Concrete, to many, is known as the
chameleon of patio design, as it can take on the look of other materials including flagstone, slate,
tile, brick and even wood. Patio builders achieve these looks by coloring
(staining) and/or stamping (scoring) the concrete.
Patios are Low-Maintenance!
Low-maintenance is defined as requiring little work to keep in good condition. When most
homeowners think about a low-maintenance outdoor living space, they often
automatically imagine a composite or PVC deck. It is only natural that
many of our clients assume that decking is the only low-maintenance material
we build with in lieu of the
AZEK synthetic decks we design. However, many clients are pleasantly surprised
when they learn about another low-maintenance option we specialize in;
Paver patios, in particular, are becoming more popular with Houston-area
homeowners who are looking for low maintenance, durability, and stability
in their outdoor living space. In fact, more than 200 million square feet
of pavers have been installed throughout North America. When properly
installed, paver patios are as reliable and stable as concrete patios.
They last just as long as concrete patios and their minimal maintenance
requirements trump the time you would spend cleaning, staining and maintaining
a traditional wooden deck.
Patios require very little attention on the part of the homeowner aside
from just maintaining them with common sense practices to ensure their
aesthetics; i.e.keeping leaves blown off the patio, cleaning up mud where
the dog tracked it from the yard on a rainy day, food spills, etc.
We take our building process very seriously and do not cut corners when
it comes to building paver patios or any other hardscape structure. Since
patios don’t require maintenance as often as other structures, low-maintenance
does not mean NO maintenance. In order to keep your patio and/or hardscape
looking and performing its best, professionals do recommend maintenance
services and resealing every 2 -3 years.
