Perhaps the concrete is basically sound, but has a few hairline cracks. In that case you can lay porcelain or stone tiles over the top, to give an elegant finish to your patio. It's a good idea to use tiles with a textured finish, to reduce the risk of slipping when the tiles are wet. You can use other materials such as sandstone, limestone, granite or slate, as long as they are properly sealed. If you often have freezing conditions over winter, then ensure the tiles don't absorb high levels of water, or they might crack. Be aware, too, that existing cracks in the concrete may expand and cause the tiles on top to crack as well.
How To Choose The Right Patio Heater: In this article, I will only cover a small amount of the vast information available for a patio heater. One of the first things to consider is the area you are desiring to keep warm on those fall evenings. If you are in a condo or an apartment with just a small patio area to provide heat, maybe a table top patio heater is the right ticket. If your patio covers several hundred square feet, then you might even have to have more than one larger patio heater. Or just maybe, it’s just you and you like to read a book before bedtime and only need heat right where you sit in that all-weather wicker rocker, then think about a directional patio heater. So the first choice you need to make, is how big an area do you need to heat.

Warm Up Your Patio! A properly outfitted patio can be an amazing addition to any home. Along with patio furniture and a grill, you will want to purchase a metal fire pit in order to get the most from your deck. Imagine, you and your family basking in the warm glow of an open flame! They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and are relatively cheap compared to other outdoor home enhancements such as patio tables and chairs. You can even fuel your fires with extra wood from your property, its a self-sufficient activity.
Cheer Up Your Concrete Patio! Many people now use their patio as the center of their home entertaining. But for some homes, the patio is still simply a concrete pad in the back yard. If you want to start using your patio for barbecues, outdoor dining or just as somewhere to sit and relax, then maybe the time has come to do something about the drab, old, and perhaps cracked concrete slab. Why not give it a makeover, and improve the value of your home at the same time?
