5 Reasons to Install a Concrete, Asphalt, or Belgian Block Patio Space

Ramsey AsphaltOne of the ways to instantly transform the look of the patio space in your yard is by installing concrete or Belgian block throughout. While the overall look instantly improves, you might not be aware of all the benefits this change offers you as the homeowner. Consider these 5 reasons to install a concrete, asphalt, or Belgian block patio space.

1. Increased Property Value

If you ever decide to sell your home, you just increased the value of the property by doing those improvements to the patio space. Potential buyers will appreciate the work done and visualize themselves utilizing that outdoor space to entertain their family and friends throughout the year.

2. Safer Environment

Wood decks can be extremely slippery after a rain event, making the patio a dangerous place to walk. When you improve the patio space with Belgian block or concrete, the surface is much less slick. Now you can entertain guests without concern of them slipping and hurting themselves.

3. Easier to Clean

One of the biggest benefits of installing Belgian block or concrete around the patio space is that the surface is easier to keep clean. Simply use some cleaning detergent and a plastic scrub brush to remove bird droppings, grease, or mildew. Run the hose over the area and the surface will be restored back to that new-like condition quickly and easily.

4. Less Yard Work

Once you complete the new patio area, you will have less grass and landscaping to tend to throughout the year. No longer will you have to water, rake, or cut the grass in that location, the patio is virtually hands-free. With concrete and stone, you instantly improve the look of that location for years to come, the perfect place for you to host parties throughout the year.Ramsey Patio Paving

5. One of a Kind Look

If you want a way to transform your entertainment space while creating a unique one-of-a-kind look, consider block in your patio space. No two blocks look alike, and no two designs will be the same. Design your patio space based on the size and the amenities you need to host those lavish events. The concrete and blocks can accommodate patio furniture, a barbecue, outdoor potted plants, and even umbrellas.
