Bartlett IL Concrete Construction | Is Concrete Your Best Option?

A lot of consideration goes into outdoor home improvement projects. Professionally done or even DIY options have many considerations to address before starting any work. A big step in the process is deciding the materials that will be used for your project. Appearance is important in outdoor projects, but with so many factors to consider it can be hard to choose a material to use for your project. Concrete is an option growing in popularity, but some still have doubts. G-CAT Construction will answer the question: is concrete your best option?

Why Concrete?

Whether you’re working on a patio, a driveway, or even an outdoor staircase, which are all areas with potentially high foot traffic. Many options exist in a material sense for all of the aforementioned outdoor projects, but none meet all the needs overall like concrete can. Maintenance, price, and even in versatility, concrete can meet just about everyone’s outdoor project needs.

Appearance

At first thought, most people conjure images of sidewalks and how plain and simple they are. Concrete is surprisingly versatile in that it can replicate the appearance of stone, brick, wood, and many other options. Areas such as driveways or patios no longer have to have a standard, plain square concrete look, as curvatures, shapes, patterns, and colors can all be added to modify even the most standard looking driveways and patios.

Price

The cost or budget can be a determining factor of the project in almost every way. Materials, labor costs, and maintenance are three areas that can determine the outcome of a project. The cost of materials for concrete can beat most options upfront, and those cheaper options fail to compare to concrete in the long run. Most concrete projects such as patios have a general lifespan of 30 years before they will need to be replaced. The maintenance costs are significantly lower as well. Concrete generally requires a single, yearly cleaning and seal to maintain it for the year. Compared to other options like wood that needs consistent touch-ups and reseals to keep it presentable all year, only to need a replacement a few years later.

When considering material types for outdoor projects, concrete tends to stand about the rest. Concrete’s versatility, cost, maintenance, and longevity combine to make it the ideal choice for most outdoor projects.
