Planning Is Key: Factors to Consider for Patio Size

You can't do enough planning when it comes to the size of your concrete – it's a relatively permanent structure.

Your happiness with the finished result is often determined by how well you plan for things like the following.

Foot Traffic

How will people get from point A to point B on your patio? Do they have routes to all doors?

Is your concrete patio big enough, with your planned furniture arrangement accounted for, that people can pass one another side by side without crashing into one another?

Furniture Dimensions

Backyard furniture can be slightly larger than indoor furniture. Have you measured the dimensions of your furniture?

The items you plan to use on the patio can help you determine the right size!


Adding a concrete patio is a great way to expand your outdoor living space for entertaining.

Does your family frequently host large gatherings? If so, a larger patio might better accommodate your needs.

Why You Should Hire a Professional for Concrete Patios

Apart from function and aesthetics, budget is typically one of the biggest factors for planning a new patio or driveway. Picking a trustworthy and dependable professional means working with a company that will help ensure that your project stays within the budget and the parameters established in your plan.

Every project component requires multiple steps, including having the right machines and tools, and expert knowledge, so you know that your investment will come out professionally finished.

A few ways you can ensure that you're hiring the right company is to ask essential questions, including:

●        Do they have solid reviews from previous customers?

●        Do they offer a warranty?

●        How long have they been in business?

●        Do they offer straightforward estimates?

●        Are they insured and licensed in Minnesota?
