Concrete Patio Maple Ridge
Getting a new concrete patio installed can be an exciting project as a patio can really add flexibility to your property. A fresh patio combined with some landscaping work can create a brand new atmosphere for your space. Not only does your patio look great, it can add utility by through functional space. This space can be used to sit around an outdoor fire, host barbecues and dinner parties, or it can be a great spot to drink your morning coffee to start your day. A concrete patio is a great addition to any home and if installed by a professional, can increase your property value as well.
Our team at Maple Ridge Concrete Contractors has worked on many residential and commercial projects throughout the lower mainland to create the perfect patio to match each spot. The process starts with the design of the patio and the exact specs you want for it. Once we get the exact design and look down, we start with demolishing and removing any concrete (if there is old concrete) prior to starting the project. After that, our team starts working on getting your patio fully into place.

When getting a patio installed, you have a couple different options when it comes to materials - Wood, different types of stone, and concrete. We recommend concrete when getting a patio made as it is less expensive compared to other building materials and doesn't come with the additional maintenance work. With the amount of rain we get in the lower mainland over the year, patios made of wood can potentially rot and splinter over time. Wood can also become home to creepy crawlies such as rodents and bugs as well. Patios made of stones and slates are typically much more expensive compared to concrete due to the cost of materials. Getting a stone based patio usually has a lot more maintenance work involved as these types of patios are much more prone to grass and weed growth between the cracks.
Concrete is by far the best material to build a patio with as it is relatively inexpensive compared to other building materials while also being built to last. Compared to a stone patio, it can withstand mother nature and lasts longer and is cheaper. The best part of concrete is that it can mixed in a way to mimic its more expensive counter parts. Your patio can look like brick, cobblestone, slate, and even wood. Concrete is the best of both worlds as you get the innate strength and durability alongside the aesthetics of other building materials.
Once your concrete patio is in place, the maintenance involved is pretty straight forward. A quick hose wash or a light pressure wash followed by a push brush and soap will do most of the cleaning that is necessary. After that, a quick rinse of your patio should be all you need for maintenance.
