How long does it take to build a patio?

The length of time it will take to build your patio will depend on a number of factors, including the size of your patio as well as the materials used. A small patio may be done in as little as a few hours, while a more elaborate one with a gabled roof could take days. We will give you a timeline for completion when we discuss your project.

What is the difference between a patio and a porch?

A patio is usually at ground level and may or may not have a roof, while a deck is raised off the ground by anywhere from a few inches to several feet. Decks are generally not covered with a roof. Porches are also raised off the ground like a deck, but are typically made from concrete, wood or brick and typically are covered with a roof on the front of a house.

What are the main benefits of having a patio?

Having a patio is a good way to extend your living space to include your outdoor areas. They can be used for dining, relaxing or enjoying the fresh hair. A well-designed patio can also increase your property value.

How long will a paved patio last?

Patios made from stone, brick or concrete can last nearly indefinitely with proper care. They may require occasional cleaning and, in some cases, the concrete can crack over time. This can be prevented by sealing the concrete regularly for weather protection.
