A patio is a great addition to your yard when you do not want the full addition of a deck. They are simple, affordable, and easy to maintain. The best part is that they can be installed in almost any yard, and anywhere too.
Patios are installed at ground level and can add a solid platform for furniture, a walkway, somewhere to entertain, or dry ground for play. If you feel that your yard is missing that, then a patio is for you and, while patios look great, and make functional sense to be installed right outside your door, they can be installed anywhere.
A patio can be an extension of your home or it can be hidden away in your trees to create a magical place for adults and children alike. For more uniquely shaped yards, you can take advantage of poured concrete, though there is a myriad of options to choose from.
For the ultimate in yard comfort and functionality, call us today to discuss your new patio.

What You Should Know About Patios...
The main difference between a deck and a patio is that a patio is installed on or in the ground, while a deck is more elevated. The main reason for this is the materials used. Patios generally use more durable materials like concrete, slab, and slate; materials that hold up to any moisture and frost, though they can be built from treated wood too.
Being installed at ground level and crafted from durable materials, patios are a lot easier to clean and maintain. You can powerwash them easily, and a patio will take a lot of foot traffic. Once installed, they need minimal maintenance and are far less likely to need to be repaired.
Patios are a great place to put furniture and other structures, such as shade structures, and are a solid platform for entertaining. They are an affordable addition to your home that will add value.

Types Of Patio Material
Concrete is a great option for your patio as it can be poured into place. This means that you can create a regular square or rectangular patio or you can create something a little more special, building a round patio or one with an irregular shape. Instead of not having space for a patio, you can fit your patio into any space.
Concrete is durable, tough, water-resistant, and easy to maintain and clean. You get a strong and sturdy platform for any furniture or structures.
Stone pavers are an easy and affordable option for your patio. The stone pavers are ready to go, so the installation of your patio is easy and quick. They can be laid on any ground, and they come in a variety of shapes and colors to create a patterned deck that works with your yard.
Stone pavers are strong and durable, holding up to heavy foot traffic, and they are easy to clean and maintain, even if they are textured.
Regular poured concrete can work for some, but if you want a little something extra for your patio, add a finish to the concrete. Not only will this add pattern, texture, or color to your patio, but it will also add an extra layer of protection to the concrete.
Finished concrete comes with all the great advantages of concrete, bringing durability, strength, and easy maintenance while adding some beauty to your yard.
Treated Wood & Composite
For the most affordable patio, you can’t go wrong with treated wood or composite. These materials still offer you durability without the cost and are relatively easy to clean and maintain. If your patio is damaged in any way, wood and composite are cheaper to replace than concrete and pavers, and you may even be able to do it yourself.
A wooden patio can create matching aesthetics to the other wood structures in your yard, you have the option of multiple finishes, and you can change that finish easily.
