We're having a hard time deciding on the best material to use for porch and patio flooring and are considering concrete pavers, a contiguous stamped concrete floor or stone pavers. The
area to cover is quite large and we're trying to keep costs down. I like the look of stamped concrete but am concerned about cracking over time and difficulty with repair. Is this a real concern in our climate? Anxious to hear your thoughts.

Our contractor suggested pouring one concrete floor (will probably stamp) for patio and porch
first and then build screened porch structure. We are planning to get a permit. Do you think it's a good idea to have one contiguous surface or are we better off doing in 2 pieces in case of cracking later on?
