How do you know when it’s time to replace your concrete patio?

When you invest in something solid and reliable like our fine products, you don’t have to do it again for a long time. Of course, you may wonder if your current arrangement has seen better days. Johnson Concrete can give you some guidelines to determine whether you should opt for a new patio.

Most Obvious Signs You Need a Concrete Patio Replacement

  1. Large Cracks
    • Everyone probably knows about this, but it’s the most telling sign your patio concrete is in serious trouble. Here, we’re not talking about the small ones you’d barely notice. Large cracks are those that are large enough for weeds to grow, and they get worse with each passing year.
  2. Materials Appear Eroded
    • Eroded tile and concrete look nothing like the original product. If you aren’t sure what your patio should look like, then it might help to compare your current situation with something newly paved to see the difference.
  3. Flaking/Chipping/Spalling
    • This is where chips, chunks, pieces, or sections of the concrete will come loose, leaving you with an unsightly mess. You can expect this problem in the most high-traffic areas of your patio.
  4. Sunken/Uneven Concrete
    • Sunken/uneven concrete comes from certain kinds of soil erosion, and it’s hard to fix without a total patio replacement.
  5. Water Pools
    • Water is the enemy of concrete in virtually every scenario. If you ever see water pooling on your patio, driveway, sidewalks, or other concrete surfaces, do not ignore the problem. Give Johnson Concrete a call and let us fix the problem.

Concrete Patio Options

Fortunately, when you work with us, you can select from multiple solutions and design options for patio replacements. While other contractors can get pushy about their preferred systems and techniques, we’re known for doing the opposite. Here’s a brief list of some of the concrete substances you can use to adorn your outdoor living spaces.

  • San Diego Flagstone
  • Brick
  • Shawnee Slate
  • Herringbone
  • Cut Stone Cobble
  • Brick Basket Weave

These are all beautiful ways to apply stamped concrete and add lots of new home value. We invite you to look around our finished project portfolio to see real examples of these gorgeous designs.

Typical Stamped Concrete Costs

If you’re convinced that it’s time to invest in a new patio, then it’s prudent to set a budget and start thinking about costs. We did another article back in February 2023, where we went through what affects the cost of stamped concrete installation.

Most of the expenses have to do with the complexity of the design you select, your patio dimensions, and the drainage conditions around your patio. Costs also depend on how much old material we’d have to remove. Fortunately, once you complete a high-quality stamped concrete project, the maintenance and upkeep are minimal, leaving you with a fantastic product or years to come.
