Pros/Cons of Pavers vs Concrete Decking
Here we go! I contacted six local builders last night to get the process started. I included approx 700 sqft of concrete decking in my request, when husband tells me "but I thought you wanted pavers?" He had seemed so against the idea, and since I was pretty indifferent I went ahead with concrete.
I want to hear your opinions on the pros and cons of pavers vs concrete decking. If we went the paver route, they would more than likely be travertine squares or something that looks similar. If we went concrete route I would want it to be scored into squares. Squares is the look we're going for.
So far I have:
-pavers can be pulled up and reinstalled if needed
-pavers cost more
-pavers are cooler
-pavers may become uneven if not installed properly
-concrete will eventually crack
-concrete is hotter
-concrete costs less
We currently have a 6" raised patio that is aggregate rock that the decking would butt up against. Thanks for your help!
