Patio & Decks

A patio or deck in your yard can add extra space to comfortably lounge or dine. A deck is a raised structure that can be built on uneven ground where as a patio is generally flush with the ground. There are several different materials that can be used as well. Aluminum, composite, wood, stone or even plastic.

  1. Aluminum. These boards are generally textured to reduce the sound when you walk on them. Fairly inexpensive and interlocking boards make for an easy install.
  2. Composite. These interlocking boards are made from recycled materials (plastic resin and wood fibers). There are many different colors to choose from.
  3. Wood. These boards are pressure treated to resist moisture and pests but can be prone to weathering in to harsh environments. A much softer feel than aluminum.
  4. Stone. Concrete is the most price effective material, but some home owners prefer natural stone such as granite, quartz, sandstone or slate.
  5. Plastic. These interlocking boards are made from recycled materials that come in a variety of colors.
