I received a quote this morning. I know the contractors work and I will do all the site work, prep,forming etc. and it was still a good chunk of money! Lori and I really like the cobble stone look. I was a little surprized at the cost.Paddysmom said:I was looking into those finishes last year for my front porch (concrete). There's a LOT of work involved and it was WAY outside my budget, but in looking at pictures online I saw some absolutely gorgeous jobs, both indoor and outdoor.
It's a lot less expensive. We had it done 2 summers ago and love it. I will find some pictures and post them tonight. We love it, there is no upkeep you can just hose it off and be done. One of SU's friends does it. Ours cost about $3200 for a pretty big patio. Our friends across the street have a much smaller patio they had done with pavers and it cost them $7000.deific said:Is Stamped and colored concrete less expensive than pavers?
You can but you would have to get the stain and the release from a supplier and you would have to rent the stamp. I wouldn't do it myself it would be really easy to mess up. I watched them do our neighbors last summer. No thanks. SU's friend did theirs too. Their are no redo's without breaking the whole thing up. Sometime you have to hire someone.deific said:
