We can provide you with an affordable means to have an outdoor space that will stand the test of time. We offer paver patios in a variety of colors, textures and brands.
Combining a deck and a paver patio can create a versatile and visually appealing outdoor living space. This combination allows you to enjoy the benefits of both materials and design elements. Here are some benefits and considerations when incorporating a deck and paver patio combination:
Design Flexibility: By combining a deck and a paver patio, you can create a multi-level outdoor space with different areas for various activities. For example, you can have a deck for dining and lounging, while the paver patio can serve as a space for grilling, entertaining, or a fire pit area. The combination offers more design options and allows you to utilize different materials and textures.
Visual Contrast: The contrasting textures and materials of the deck and paver patio can add visual interest to your outdoor space. The warm and natural appearance of the wood deck complements the textured and colorful pavers, creating an aesthetically pleasing combination.
Functionality: Decks are great for elevated spaces, providing a platform for outdoor activities and expanding your usable living space. Paver patios, on the other hand, offer a solid and level surface for outdoor furniture, grills, and other features. By combining both elements, you can create distinct areas for different purposes, accommodating a variety of outdoor activities and creating a cohesive and functional space.
Budget Considerations: It's important to consider the cost implications when combining a deck and a paver patio. Decks, especially those made from high-quality materials, can be more expensive than paver patios. If you have budget constraints, you can opt for a smaller deck or use cost-effective decking materials. Alternatively, you can choose a larger paver patio and use more affordable paver options.
Durability: Pavers are known for their durability and ability to withstand heavy loads. They can handle foot traffic, patio furniture, and even vehicles without cracking or breaking. Pavers are designed to be long-lasting and can withstand different weather conditions, including freeze-thaw cycles.
Design Options: Pavers offer a wide range of design options, allowing you to create a unique and personalized patio. They come in various shapes, sizes, colors, and textures, giving you the flexibility to design a patio that matches your aesthetic preferences and complements your home's architecture. You can create intricate patterns, add borders, or combine different paver types to achieve the desired look.
Easy Repair and Maintenance: In the event that a paver becomes damaged or stained, it is relatively easy to replace the individual paver rather than having to repair the entire patio. This makes maintenance and repairs more manageable compared to other patio materials. Additionally, if underground utilities need to be accessed, pavers can be removed and reinstalled without causing significant damage.
Versatility: Pavers are versatile and can be used for various outdoor projects beyond patios. They can be used to create pathways, driveways, pool decks, or even vertical structures like retaining walls or fire pits. This versatility allows for consistency in design throughout your outdoor space.
Natural Drainage: Pavers are installed with gaps between them, allowing water to infiltrate the ground rather than creating pooling or runoff issues. This natural drainage system helps to prevent water damage and keeps your patio area dry and safe.
We pride ourselves in using EP Henry pavers that look like real stone without the maintenance and cost. These pavers come in a variety of variegated colors and textures replicating stone. We can also do all kinds of curves and bends flawlessly to contour your landscape.
EP Henry uses Colortech technology that incorporates the sealer into the paver, drastically reducing color fade and staining. As opposed to stamped concrete, paver patios do not crack from ground movement due to the fact that each paver is individual, allowing the entire patio to flex. This is a very important feature considering Maryland's freezing temperatures in the winter.
