Backyard landscaping is a lot of work. Moving the dirt, planting the flowers, constantly mowing the grass, fixing sprinklers, putting in pavers, and on and on. There is a lot that goes into creating a beautiful space.
Nothing caps off that beautiful space better than a gathering area where your friends and family can eat, play games, and enjoy time together surrounded by the beautiful landscape you have worked so hard to create.
Many people debate between capping that space off with a wooden deck or a stamped concrete patio, trying to determine what will give them best bang for their buck and figure out what will create the least headache. We are here to tell you that in Boise, the answer is unequivocally a stamped concrete patio (what did you expect Boise Concrete Company to say?!?).
That is not to say that wooden decks are not beautiful-- they absolutely are-- but instead it is just stamped concrete lends itself to much more interesting design, easier maintenance, and lasts a long time.
Stamped concrete has the benefit of being incredibly malleable, customized to exactly what a customer wants. Boise Concrete Company can make a simple textured rock patio, a multi-colored European Fan design, a Boise State Bronco head, or anything in between.
Wooden decks are classic, but can only have sharp angles, limited coloring options, and very little opportunity for unique customization.
Perhaps one of the best things about stamped concrete patios in Boise is the simplicity of maintenance. The Boise weather is pretty tough on a wooden deck. Rain, sun, loitering snow/ice, wind (all on the same day around here sometimes!), and everything else combine to rapidly break down wooden decks. Oftentimes, this requires a serious time commitment to upkeep, with power-spraying, sanding, staining, and re-staining the bain of many a wooden deck owner's spring!
Contrast this with the upkeep of stamped concrete in Boise, where all you really need to do is spray your patio off and use a spryaer/paint roller to apply some sealant you can buy at any home improvement store. This needs to be done every other year, and the whole thing takes a couple of hours on a Saturday morning in the fall before the Broncos play.
Length of Use
Depending on the severity of conditions at your home, a wooden deck could need need to be replaced every five years or so (at least partially), and is susceptible to hidden rot and erosion.
Stamped concrete patios in Boise could last 20 years or more, given the right maintenance schedule (which will only take about 40-50 hours of your time over that 20 years).
So, that settles it. Boise Concrete Company decrees that stamped concrete in Boise is a far superior solution to a wooden deck. It offers better look, easier maintenance, and lasts darn near forever!
