Any estimates what it would cost to have a 12x20 stamped concrete patio put in for. Need ball park guesstimates.
Thanks

I don't have a stamped concrete quote - but I did get a rough estimate for pavers (walkway and patio) of about $13-$14 a square foot (materials and install). I've heard stamped concrete is similar in price range - maybe a little more. That's still just one quote though - so it could be an outlier.

We just had a 16x20 stamped concrete patio installed and it was about $6000. Ours was a bit more than usual because we permitted it and had footings installed in the event we want to build a screened porch on it at a later date. We are very happy with the work done.

Is your home a pre-existing or build it yourself? You should have the builder do it but if not they should have the names of contractors that they use who could probably do it for a good price.

Default Builder Price

The builder would have been $1,000 for a 10x12 stamped concrete deck. We are going with a 12x20 wood deck which will be at the height and attach to the screened in porch The they will be about 4ft off the ground. We are getting the deck for $4,300

It's funny you should post this. I have been wondering lately why decks are so prevalent in this area. We have a 10x12 deck that we've been thinking about expanding....but I feel so seperated from the rest of the yard when I am up on the deck.

I was thinking about looking into stamped concrete or pavers, but that would require building steps up to the back door, and I wonder if that would be a pain when we have kids.

Has anyone done this?

We have steps from our patio to the back door. We have a large enough landing at the top of the stairs that it hasn't been an issue with the kids.

We have the wood steps the builder gave us down into the yard from our screened in porch. They now lead to a series of terraced stamped concrete patios. We have stone walls built as seating around the edge of each patio as well as steps in stone between each patio.
