Building a patio can cost a varying amount of money depending on a multitude of different factors. For example, the area where you plan to build the patio in terms of geographic location matters. It also matters where you plan to build the patio on your property.
If you want a really low cost patio, this is possible and you don’t even need a big backyard. You can build a deck or patio that has nothing extra to it for as low as around $1000. Many contractors will install a concrete patio of 200 square feet for around 700 to 800 dollars. But the costs of the patio don’t tend to stop there and most people add a lot more to it.
This is why some experts put the Average Cost Closer to $8000
Differences in estimates abound though due to the fact that there are so many different factors. Some say that the lowest cost you can get a patio for is closer to $2000. There’s also some disagreement on ranges with some people saying that it costs between five and seven thousand dollars for the average patio that’s covered and has a fan overhead.
It’s also possible to go to extreme upper limits as well. You can spend as much as $0,000 on a patio if you decide to add a lot of bells and whistles to it. This could include having a patio that has different levels to it as well as a staircase, and speakers outside.
Extra Frills could also include a Cooking enclosure and an Outdoor Fireplace
One of the main things that differs between locations when it comes to patio costs, is the type of frills that you’ll need. Some place really warm like Texas may not need as many frills in terms of heating, for example but you can have a nice outdoor kitchen which you use all year around.
In an area like New York this might be more necessary, which will cause the cost of the project to go up. Additional costs for the project include for example, an electric outdoor heater and other accessories such as barbecue, plants, outdoor furniture and so on. These can add between $200 and $5000 to the total cost.
You can also ass large outdoor umbrellas or awnings. Mechanized outdoor umbrellas can cost an extra one to two thousand dollars. There’s also the wood lattice roof or gazebo which can cost up to $10,000 more. The choice of materials for the roof in your patio can also change the cost and this can vary between different states.
For example, the type of material that is readily available in different places could vary. Adding a wood patterned aluminum roof costs between $3000 and $4000 more, and this cost will be different based on how readily available aluminum is in your particular area.
Overall, it’s important to come to a conclusion about exactly what sorts of amenities you’re going to need in your patio, as well as exactly how much you’re willing to spend before you begin. This way you won’t get pulled down in terms of costs when you get confused about the process halfway through.
