Being one continuous surface, stamped concrete tends to be comparatively more slippery, especially during the rains and snowfall, or if used in designing poolside pathways. One way to prevent this is to use an appropriate anti-skid coating. If during construction leveling is improperly done, water might pool upon the surface, making it slippery and hazardous to use.
Stain, on the other hand, is absorbed by the concrete surface. This makes it less prone to wear and tear in comparison to concrete paint. It also maintains the texture of concrete making it less hazardous. It is definitely longer lasting and requires lesser maintenance than concrete paint. On the downside, staining is a relatively expensive procedure and is best done by hiring a professional. Also, the color options are more limited in this type of treatment.
Paint coats the concrete surface. The surface does not absorb it. This makes it easy to wear away. In the absence of a vapor barrier in an exterior surface, paint is more likely to bubble and flake. Problems may also occur depending on the weather of the area you reside in. Paint can become slippery and thus, become dangerous. Finally, if your patio is heavily used, the paint job will not last very long.
Your back garden, or backyard, or simply your patio can double up, as a perfect spot for your family to share some memorable moments together. For obvious reasons, a decorated patio is a delightful treat to the eyes, and hence adds to the visual appeal of your home. Essentially considered to be a center point between the home and the garden, decorating the patio can be a little confusing.
