How large do you want this custom patio to be? Next, what materials are you going to use? Let’s take a look at the costs associated with building a custom patio.
Each Custom Patio Is Different
It’s hard to produce an average figure that fits because each custom patio is unique anddifferent. But let’s just say that if you go with pavers and do the work yourself, you’re typically looking at an average cost of around $700. Now, skipping all other cost factors,let’s just say the high end is around $4000. So your new custom patio is likely to fall somewhere in that range, depending on the choices you make.
Concrete Patios Can Be More Expensive
Concrete patios can be more expensive, and the same goes for hiring contractors to do the work. As for the size of your patio, let’s assume that you’re going with 12 x 16. That is the size that would fit those cost averages best. Yet you are wanting a custom patio, and it’s important that you get what you’re looking for out of this project.Granted, it’s also important that the project fits your budget. You want your new patio to have a long life span, too. If you want a nice looking patio that looks more natural, and you want to do the work yourself, you can save the money. Some additional things that you can also do to your patio are things such as putting a roof over the patio to ensure when the rain comes you can still use your patio.
