What Types of Patios Do We Build?

Concrete:

It is comparatively the most preferable material as it offers a variety of coatings and attractive colours. In addition, life span is longer compared to other materials and you can always rebar your concrete floor to make it stronger.

Asphalt:

It is a perfect choice for your backyard as it builds a stronger and more sleek surface. It is inexpensive compared to other patio types. It resists all kinds of climates and stands stronger throughout. If any damage occurs, they can be easily repaired. 

Brick:

For an aesthetic look, a brick patio is a classic choice. You have many colourful bricks to choose from. And if you want a traditional look, then the red brick is the best. They are easy-peasy to maintain, and you get to make a range of patterns from brick.  

Various Decking Materials We Prefer

Pressure-Treated Wood:

Many prefer pressure-treated wood as the most cost-effective material compared to others. It has a longer life span as its material can resist mold, moisture and rot. 

Redwood:

It is a perfect choice if you desire to give a classic look to your deck. It is stronger and durable. Also, it is expensive compared to other materials, and that is because no material is as elegant and eye-appealing as redwood. 

Cedar:

For a natural look, nothing is better than cedar. It is long-lasting, impressive and enhances the look of your deck. The material can resist insects and rot, which means you don’t have to worry about its protection.
