Both decks and patios provide the foundations for outdoor living, literally. In essence, they create another room to your home, another spot for friends and family to gather.

Patios are generally in the midst of a landscape, almost an extension of the flowers and shrubs that surround them, uniting to form a tranquil spot. Decks, on the other hand, because of their raised stature, offer a separation from the landscape, providing a vantage point from which to observe and appreciate it, rather than being immersed in it. There are a wide array of materials, styles, and price points that make these outdoor features a desired addition for today’s homeowners.
