NORTHWEST SUBURBS CHICAGOLAND PATIO INSTALLATION
If you are like most people, you consider some type of usable outdoor space in your home almost an essential. With spring finally here in the Chicago area, many of us are excited to finally have the chance to enjoy some much needed time outside in the sun, relaxing with our friends and family and soaking up the rays. With that in mind, we thought it would be a great time to highlight some of the desirable features that a patio from Budget Construction can deliver.
WHAT IS A PATIO?
Pretty much everyone knows what a deck is, but a patio might be a little more confusing. Basically, it is a paved outdoor area that adjoins a house. However, patios have come a long way since the days of a concrete slab that looks more like an extension of the garage. Patios today are available in all sorts of attractive colors that add visual interest and beauty to any space. We also have a variety of stone pavers for your consideration – they help with drainage when it does rain, and their patterns look so nice! Again there are a multitude of options to think about when it comes to your choice for pavers, and there is surely one that fits both your budget and the look you are going for with your new patio. One of the great things about working with Budget Construction, is that we have been in business since 1976, and family owned and operated since then. That means we really understand what it takes to make our customers happy, and our friendly and knowledgeable consultants can work with you to come up with just the right solution for you, your family, and your budget as well.
PATIOS ARE PERFECT FOR THE GEOGRAPHY IN THE CHICAGOLAND AREA
Patios need a flat space in general – it the terrain is too hilly or sloped, the cost to grade it flat might be too much, and a deck would work better. This is one of the nice things about Chicago and the suburbs! It tends to be pretty flat here, and in most cases a patio will work great. They offer a convenience that is tough to get with decks as well – a simple power wash every few years is likely the only maintenance your patio will ever need. When you consider that many decks made of wood will warp, twist, and shrink over the years, in addition to needing to be sealed and cleaned, it makes choosing a patio that much easier. A stone and concrete patio space is so durable that it gives you one less thing to maintain on your home – a boon for any homeowner!
PROPERLY DESIGNING YOUR PATIO
There is a little more to a great patio than just laying down some cement and calling it a day. You want to consider and plan the area, shape, location, and functionality of your patio so that it doesn’t turn into wasted space. Consider how you will use the area first. Will it be primarily for outdoor eating, so you need a nice area for a grill and table? Do you want a separate area with some nice chairs to facilitate conversation and entertaining? How about a spot for a hot tub or spa? Heavy items like these can be a challenge on a deck but in most cases work great for patios. The better you know what you want to use the space for, the more our consultants can work with you and produce a finished patio that you will enjoy for many years to come!
