Installing a backyard patio can drastically increase the living area of your home at a fraction of the price of other home renovations. A small concrete patio and/or walkway start off as low as $1,000, with the cost depending largely on what materials you choose, the exact size of your desired patio, as well as any add-ons you may opt for.
On Average Here Are Typical Costs Per Square Foot For A Small Patio
The following types of patios are popular choice in the Northern Virginia area, but of course there are many options for your small patio, depending on your vision and budget:
- Concrete: $2-$4 per square foot
- Concrete Pavers: $3-$7 per square foot
- Brick Pavers: $4-$8 per square foot
- Flagstone: $3-15 per square foot
- Granite cobblestone: $20-35 per square foot
Concrete patios, for example, go for roughly $2-4 per square foot, depending on thickness of the slab and any upgrades you may choose. Being the most popular choice for patios and walkways, a concrete patio is durable, attractive and easy to keep looking brand new, even after years of use.
If you have your heart set on a paver patio, you’ve come to the right place. Battlefield Custom Decks and Patios is the premier hardscaping company in Loudoun County, VA. Concrete pavers run about $3-7 per square foot and can mimic just about any style of stone or brick. Being the more economically sound option, concrete pavers are easier and quicker to install, transforming your backyard into a private oasis sooner rather than later. Brick pavers, on the other hand, typically cost around $4-8 per square foot. Lasting significantly longer than their concrete counterpart, brick pavers are made of real clay and require less regular maintenance.
Other patio materials include gravel, flagstone, brick and granite cobblestone. Pea gravel, having the potential to be the cheapest material option, tends to be difficult to keep looking clean. As a loose material, gravel can move around with varying weather and isn’t the most comfortable surface for those who prefer to be barefoot. Flagstone and brick both are both aesthetically pleasing and offer great traction when wet, making them safe options for families with small children or elderly relatives. Brick costs roughly $4-8 per square foot, while Flagstone can run anywhere from $3-15 for the same area. Granite cobblestone, being by far the most luxurious and durable options, is priced at $20-35 per square foot.
