Patio Paver Stones and Stamped Concrete
Paver stones and stamped concrete are attractive alternatives to plain poured concrete. Each has its own set of benefits and disadvantages.
Some believe that stamped concrete looks like paver stones. They think that it is an inexpensive alternative. However, this is not true at all. Instead, stamped concrete looks great from a distance. However, since it is only an imitation of stone, brick, or cobblestone, it looks artificial up close. Therefore, the one advantage of choosing stamped concrete is its ability to simulate the look of brick, slate, cobblestone, flagstone, real stone, and tile at a lower cost. If you want the stamped concrete to create the same look as paver stones, here are a few things to consider.
Paver stones have a lifetime warranty against cracking. If a paver stone stains or cracks, just remove the stone and replace it with a new one that matches. However, if stamped concrete cracks, a repair will result in a scar and discolorations. In addition, the repair may be more costly.
Now that you know a little about the differences between stamped concrete and paver stones, consider paver stones for your next home improvement project. They increase both the value and aesthetic appeal of your home’s exterior.
