Was going to try to salvage a portion of my existing tired deck prior
homeowner installed. Upon further review- it's in poor shape and will
be coming down.
I plan on building a 4x8 landing out the back door with 3 additional
steps leading to a patio. Currently looking at Belgard pavers and
stamped concrete. I want bluestone but it's too expensive. Since we
don't plan on being here more than 5 additional years, we're not
spending that kind of cash.
Not sure if stamped concrete is a wise choice with the weather climate
changes - temp ranges -20 to 98.
It seems to me pavers installed properly will move with the ground and
not crack as concrete would over time. Besides, I think replacing 1 or
2 pavers is easier & cheaper than repairing stamped concrete.
Does anyone have any long term experience with stamped concrete in a
similar climate? I've seen enough cracked concrete sidewalks &
driveways around to make me believe it's not the way to go.
