Is A Stamped Concrete Patio Cheaper Than A Wood Deck?

Having a stamped concrete patio has become more and more popular over the past couple of years, and for good reason. It’s a unique way to add a beautiful addition to your property without breaking the bank. If you’re considering getting one installed on your property, you may be wondering, “How much does a stamped patio cost?”

Stamped patios typically cost between $10-$20 per square foot including installation costs. This can add up to total of $2,000-$4,000 for most average sized patios or as much as $7,000-$9,000 for larger or more complex patios.

A big factor that impacts the dramatic range in pricing is the design complexity of the project. Adding different colors plus using complex design patterns that require special stamping mats both contribute to a higher cost per square foot.

Is A Stamped Concrete Patio Cheaper Than A Wood Deck?

Yes, in most situations it’s cheaper to pay for a stamped concrete patio to be installed than for a wood deck to be built. That said, if you’re handy enough to build the deck yourself, you might be able to save a little money by only having to pay for materials.

However, neither decks nor patios are easy to install if you’re not already trained or experienced building either.

If the area of your yard where the deck or patio would be installed is sloped, that would make it more difficult and thus more costly to install a concrete patio, so that is another factor to consider.

Would A Concrete Patio Add Value To My Home?

In many situations, adding a stamped concrete patio where there was previously just grass or dirt would typically increase the value of your home slightly. However, the amount of increase in value depends on a wide range of factors, including the size and design of the patio, the overall condition of the rest of your house and property, your neighborhood, and more. Contact a local realtor to get a clearer answer to this question.
