Both deck and patio installation have many pros. The deck vs. patio debate is as old as time in the landscaping industry. Owning a home is something that almost everyone looks forward to their entire lives. Owning a home also comes with some tough decisions, but that’s where an expert landscaping company like us comes in handy. Whether we install your deck or patio, they both can enhance your home in significant ways. Back in November, we discussed the deck vs. patio issue, and now we’re back at it again. This blog is a must-read if you need some help learning some key differences between decks and patios.
On average, decks have a higher return on investment (ROI) We should also note that decks have a higher ROI than indoor renovations. Decks are also beneficial due to how installation works. Because they jut out from the house instead of being directly built on the ground, uneven terrain doesn’t cause an issue. Decks also enhance your vantage point, which is excellent for your living experience and adds to your home value.
Other pros include the fact that custom decks are a possibility. With the advancements in technology, composite and synthetic decking products provide a nearly carefree and completely splinter free alternative to an old fashioned wood deck which never require staining. A wide range of colors and styles in these composite and synthetic products is available to give you the look which suits your tastes. Railings are available in vinyl, Aluminum, and composite covering a wide range of beautiful and carefree options.
Tips for Custom Decks
- Long Dining Tables
- Container Gardens
- Post Lamps
- Planter Boxes
- Privacy Walls
Patios tend to be more cost-effective. Patios also don’t require a lot of maintenance. Some can last up to 25 years without much upkeep. Paver and stone patios are trendy now because of how durable they are. Another pro is that patios typically don’t require permits and inspections. If you’re a homeowner who appreciates privacy, then another advantage of patio installation is its flexibility in design and landscaping. You can make your yard as private as you want by having us install privacy screens all around your patio.
