Patio Paver Stones and Stamped Concrete

Paver stones and stamped concrete are both attractive alternatives to plain poured concrete. Although both are superior to plain concrete, they each have their own benefits and disadvantages.

A common misconception about stamped concrete is that it gives you the look of paver stones inexpensively. When stamped concrete is done correctly, it will look great from a distance. However, since it is only an imitation of stone, brick, or cobblestone, it looks artificial up close. The one advantage of going with stamped concrete is that it can be made into a wide variety of patterns to simulate the look of brick, slate, cobblestone, flagstone, real stone, and tile at a lower cost. If you are thinking about using stamped concrete to create same look as paver stones, here are a few details about paver stones to consider.

Paver stones have a lifetime warranty against cracking. If a paver stone gets stained or cracked, you can simply 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.

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 will increase both the value and aesthetic appeal of your home’s exterior.
