There are many different materials that you can choose for your patio and they all have their own pros and cons. Concrete is somewhat common for a patio but there are maintenance issues that come with it as you’ll have to reapply the coating every two years. Natural stone gives off a very natural look but it is expensive to install and takes long to install too. Finally, brick retains a lot of moisture and can crack during freezing weather. Brick also tends to be very slippery when wet.
