How to build the perfect patio

Posted May 6, 2021 in Blog, Patio and Walkway, Videos

Outdoor patio structures have evolved a lot over the last 10 years. Thanks to new materials and updated technology, it doesn’t matter the size of your yard; you can still create a new patio that is the perfect place to relax and unwind. But before you begin construction on your new patio in the Lehigh Valley you will want to read this:

  • Selecting the right materials for your new patio 

One of the first steps in planning a new patio is deciding which material will work best for you. The patio material you select will play a huge role in establishing not only the style of your new patio, but also the cost and how you’ll care for it over the long term.

We know that you want to make educated and informed decisions about each detail of your new patio. This is why we use our experience building hundreds of outdoor living spaces throughout the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas to help explain the pros and cons of each patio material, while helping you understand the costs through your very own budget study.

  • Build your new patio with 3 separate zones

If you place your grill too far away, the chef could feel left out. Neglecting to plan the right appliances could leave you running to and from the house often, and that could make you miss important memories in your new outdoor living space. We don’t ever want you to live with that kind of regret.

We want to help you design your outdoor living space around your lifestyle. This is why we take the time to have an open and honest conversation about your new space and how you want to use it! Your custom 3D design will show you exactly how your space will look so you can see exactly how you will use each part of your investment and modify any parts before patio construction begins.

This is why we combine the design, project management, and build into one complete package that eliminates all potential hassle to you and your family!
