The decision of whether or not to install a patio is easy: yes, you should! A patio contributes tons of value to your home, both in monetary cubside appeal and in the quality of your life spent outdoors. It turns low-trafficked, empty space in your yard into a unique, personalized place to relax, entertain, and enjoy. And depending on the amount of features, it can also be a quick addition, planned and built in a single season and ready to use sooner than you think.
Once you’ve realized that a patio is right for your yard, it’s time to consult with our experts. There are lots of considerations that a professional installer can walk you through.
- Local Building and Safety Codes
We’ll make sure your project conforms.
Will your yard require leveling, retaining walls, or extra drainage? These are engineering issues that qualified professionals should address. Improperly installing a patio can lead to unsafe and unsightly conditions, especially here in northern Illinois with occasionally extreme weather. The locations of utilities like buried lines, wiring, and plumbing are also serious concerns.
There is a wide range of materials suitable for patios, depending on the choices you’ve made about usage and location. Poured concrete; pavers made of concrete, brick, or stone; tiles; even recycled composites; all available in a range of colors, textures, and prices.
- Maintenance and Durability
Different materials require different amount of maintenance to remain aesthetically pleasing. Some types are recommended to be sealed after installation and then every few years afterward. Most require an at least season cleaning. We’ll let you know what fits your desired level of ongoing maintenance.
