Stone/Pavers vs Wood Patios
When you’re considering the type of material to use for your new patio, it’s important to look at all the options. Many people have wood decks vs patios. The difference in these 2 materials is huge. Not only will stone or pavers last you many more years, possibly even forever, the maintenance is almost zero. Comparatively, with wood you need to make sure the wood is properly treated for weather or painted every few years. Even then, wood tends to wear out after only a few years of use. The typical wood deck lasts about 10 years before it’s time to do board replacement and 15 years later, it’s possibly time to start over. With wood decks you also have the invasion of insects such as carpenter bees or termites. Plus, a wooden deck increases the value of your propertly only about half as much as stone or pavers will!
