Not necessarily, in warmer areas, the heat of the midday sun, but enough sun to give you that good sense of relaxation and well being that we get when exposed to lots of vitamin D.

Another consideration is insulation. Glass patio doors offer a lot of surface area for cold air to get in, and investing in either vertical cellular shades or heavy insulated curtains is an easy way to save on your heating bill.

Stones that are 18'x18' or 24\"x24\" create attractive designs. The stone pattern may be laid perpendicular to the house, or it may be on a diagonal. This stone also may be wet laid or dry laid. If dry laid, try to keep the joints between 1/4\" and 3/8\" for a tighter fit. You have a little bit more flexibility in joint size if setting the stones in mortar.

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.

Paver edge restraint and soldier course should be added to prevent spreading and a layer of joint sand employed, which is to be swept into the cracks. Polymeric sand is suggested, which will harden after it has been added. Although not mandatory, this is a good idea to curtail insects \"moving\" the joint sand and week growth in the cracks in the patio.

Some factors you need to consider include your budget, the condition of the existing concrete, and how much disruption you're willing to tolerate. If the concrete is in excellent condition, for example, then you may want to simply stain the surface, or perhaps give it a textured coating. These options are quickly and easily performed by a specialized contractor.

You have the option to add paint or stain to change the appearance of the wood at any time. This material is usually more cost effective, but it will not last as long as vinyl or metal.
