Despite stiff competition from wood decks, the concrete patio
is gaining in popularity as an essential element in today’s backyards.

Builders in 2012, concrete is the most popular patio material in the
country. In seven of nine geographical regions identified in the study,
poured concrete is the most commonly used outdoor surface material
in luxury-home construction coming in ahead of concrete pavers and
natural stone. With more decorative options than ever before, concrete
patios are attracting homeowners who want an outdoor surface that
offers the ultimate in design versatility. Concrete patios also have the
edge when it comes to durability and low maintenance.
