Want to make your Aurora area backyard more inhabitable? Want to make your home a more desirable place to spend your relaxation time, or even for your next stay-cation?

Building or redoing your backyard patio is a great way to enhance the appeal of your home and yard. A patio is a great home amenity, and can increase the value of your home. It is something you can enjoy as the current owner, and will help set your home apart when you go to sell.

So, how much does a patio cost?  

The costs of a patio can vary greatly depending on the size of the area you want covered and the materials that you want to use. On the low end, a patio can sometimes cost less than $1,000. On the high end, they can cost more than $4,000.

In general, patios are more affordable than decks, which can cost more than $8,000 depending on the size and the wood used.

Concrete or brick are generally the more affordable patio building materials. Pavers and flagstone can be a bit more expensive.

Patio Design 

If your patio is an unconventional shape, or requires laying out brick or pavers in an intricate design, that can also have an impact on pricing. Your patio is a great place to showcase your creative side, however there may be more labor involved.

Patio Amenities

Incorporating amenities such as a built in fire pit can impact the cost of your patio. Built in benches, warmers, or additional landscaping can all contribute to giving you a patio you will love for a long time to come, but they all have an additional cost as well, for materials and labor.
