The problem with stamped concrete is the fact that it is made of concrete! Being one continuous surface, there is absolutely no place to expand with the heat or contract as it is cooled. So, when Mother Nature changes her moods, internal pressures within the slab cause cracks to develop on the surface. Crack repairs are an expensive and time-consuming affair, usually involving replacing the entire slab. Rain and snow are especially damaging to the surface. One way around this issue is to pattern a textured finish to better hide the cracks.
A well-designed patio with a fire pit is bound to stand out and make an impression, but most importantly give you a place where you can unwind after a hard day at work.

A patio umbrella made from a parachute will give you a lot of shade and protect you from all kinds of extreme weather. Parachute material is very good for making patio umbrellas as it is extremely durable and also rainproof.
