    Hey all,

    I have a 10 X 20 section that I want to put in a patio. If I were to do it myself, what would be cheaper? Pavers, bricks, stamped concrete? I can get help from people who know what they are doing I just need to know as far as materials.

    Not sure how you would go about doing stamped concrete without the pattern stamps. Also, stamped concrete will crack.

    I'd go with concrete pavers, but maybe I'm a little biased towards pavers since I sell them.

    If you ant cheap, concrete will be the answer. If you want long lasting beauty and durability, tough to beat pavers if installed properly. Bricks, a in clay bricks, unless intended for foot traffic, are not going to do well as a walking surface for the long term. For such a small area, 200 sqft, and you are going to supply the labor, should cost you less than $2000.
