How To Save Money on a Concrete Patio
While materials do play the largest role in your overall patio investment, there are other ways to save on your patio installation.
First off, if you plan to hire a pro, shop around and get multiple quotes. For any home remodeling project, you should always get multiple quotes. While the cheapest option may be tempting, you’re better off going with the middle price. The low-ball price will most likely not adhere to the quality you’re looking for. Furthermore, try to hire a pro during their downtime, which is winter or late fall.
Another way to lower your concrete patio cost is by limiting extra accessories or expensive materials. While built-in benches, complex designs, covers or stamped concrete all look terrific, they all bring higher price tags.
Finally, help out when you can. Whether its lugging concrete, applying for permits, leveling the surface or any patio installation step, lend a helping hand. Your wallet will thank you later on.
