Question Patio floor cover

Thinking about covering the concrete on my patio with.... I'm not sure. Looked at tile, flagstone and considering a product called carvestone. Obviously can't be slick and no more than 1 1/2 thick if flagstone. So far tile and flagstone are about the same cost, don't know about the carvestone yet...

Forgot to ask if anyone has any experience with any of these ideas for a concrete cover.

If your floor gets damp it will be slick as ice with most any type of tile. So choose wisely. If it does not get wet by the rain or humidity choose what ever appeals to you.

My next door neighbor installed flagstone on his concrete patio. It cracked within couple of years. He ripped out the flagstone and replaced it with a wood deck.

I think if flagstone/tile is used, the patio subfloor has to be built like a house foundation, not just a 4" thick pad without rebar and footing to prevent shifting.

Following. I need to do something similar and I'm not sure what material I want to use.

acid stain is an opt.

I don't know if its slicker than plain concrete but think it would be. Haven't tried it or know of anyone.

I just covered my patio with carvestone. It isn't slick when wet, they do a great job of creating texture. Real happy with it. Cleans up easy with the sealer they apply.

Travertine is not a good material for outside projects. Just remember it is a porous limestone and will have to be cleaned frequently.
