Patio flooring options are the first things to be considered when renovating your backyard deck area. The type of material used to create a patio floor is normally chosen to accent the area’s décor. It must also be durable, waterproof and able to withstand exposure to the elements without being damaged or destroyed.
Concrete slabs can be poured in almost any shape. Squares, rectangles and odd shapes can be used to create a mosaic, checkerboard or random floor pattern. Concrete is durable, water-resistant and able to withstand both extreme heat and cold temperatures. It is also easy to clean and sections can be replaced if they crack or break.
Flagstones are large flat stones that can be laid together much like puzzle pieces. They are extremely durable and easy to maintain. They offer a rustic look and, because they are stone, they have a slightly uneven surface. Flagstones create a natural tone for your patio and fit in well when plant boxes and shrubbery are used to decorate the area.
Wood decking can be purchased in sections and placed in patterns or laid end to end for a more conventional look. It can be painted or stained depending on your personal preference. Staining offers a natural look that will accentuate almost any décor. Painting the decking will act as a sealant and prevent moisture from damaging the wood, while adding a contrasting color to your patio area.
Waterproof Laminate Flooring
Waterproof laminate flooring works well for patio floors because it withstands moisture and maintains its look as long as it is well cared for. It works well in both enclosed and open style patios. Waterproof laminate flooring comes in a variety of patterns and colors and works well with any style of décor.
