Question DetailsAsked on 10/15/2013

how much does a 18x18 non-brick paver patio cost? What about a stamped concrete patio of the same size?

I live in PA, with rain/snow often - which is the better option given the weather conditions? My understanding is that stamped concrete is really only for southern climates.

Pavers typically about $10-12/SF, though you can get a simple rectangular job with cheap pavers on already level, suitable ground for as low as about $5-7/SF in some areas.

Stamped concrete usually about $12-15/SF in areas where that is common (so stamps don't have to be imported from another area), with individual stamped block staining about $5-10/SF additional depending on how fancy you get.

Stamped concrete works in all climates - just gets scratched up real fast if you shovel snow on it, and of course you do NOT want to do snow plowing on it as it will chip and scratch a lot, and of course because it is rough and retains water soem plces, it is a bit more susceptible to freeze-thaw damage resulting in spalling.

Here is a link to a more detailed answer I gave another person regarding costs for various patio/walk options -
