Should You Repair Or Replace Your Damaged Patio?

Should You Repair Or Replace Your Damaged Patio?

If your patio does get damaged, you’ll have to decide if you need to replace the whole thing or simply repair the damage.

Your patio is an important part of your home. It is the ideal place to create an outdoor living space where you can host events like birthday parties or holiday gatherings or even just relax and enjoy the beauty of the changing seasons. Your patio is there through it all, but even with proper maintenance, over time, out in the sunlight or sun or moisture,  your patio may suffer from wear and tear and even become damaged. If your patio does get damaged, you’ll have to decide if you need to replace the whole thing or simply repair the damage. Consider these questions as you make the decision.

How Badly Is It Damaged?

When your patio is damaged, the degree of damage is going to be an important consideration in whether you can repair it or must replace it. If it is badly damaged, with large, deep cracks or with damage that spans the entirety of the patio, this is a sign that the whole patio needs to be replaced. Structural damage also typically requires a full replacement of the patio pad.  If the damage is contained to a small area, or the cracks or holes are fairly small, you may be able to just patch it. 

How Old Is The Patio?

Another factor to consider is the age of the patio. If the patio is already two decades or more old, there has likely been pretty substantial wear and tear. Even if the actual damage is minimal, if there is also general wear and tear, it might make more sense to replace the whole thing. A younger patio with light damage could be patched instead, but if your patio is already old, it may be a waste of money to repair it now and still have to replace it in a few years.

How Big Is Your Budget?

Your budget is also an important consideration. If you don’t have the budget to fully replace your patio, you shouldn’t over extend your financial situation. On the other hand, if you have room in your budget to replace the patio now, you might want to get it over with while you can, even if there is not substantial damage. 

Can You Make The Decision Alone?

The bottom line is that unless you already know a lot about patios, you may not be able to assess the damage to the patio. Call in a professional to help you decide if it cn be reapired or if it needs to be replaced. Once you find a contractor that you trust, be honest with them about your needs and your budget.
