Decks: Expand Your Outdoor Living Space
Why limit yourself to the space within your home? The right deck can allow you to expand your living space and enjoy the fresh air, sunlight, and views around your property. At Patriot Contracting, we help you expand your horizons with luxury deck building solutions to fit any home and any sense of style. Contact us today to schedule an in-home consultation with one of our experts.
Design to Fit Your Home and Landscape
At Patriot Contracting, we believe that a deck should be more than just a utilitarian piece of scaffolding that allows you to soak up the sun or cook on the grill. It should be an extension of your living space, but it should also tie into your home’s design and it should blend with the landscape around the home. Anything less is an eyesore that will detract from your enjoyment.
Our expert designers take everything into account, from the style of your home’s construction to the use of your yard to the layout of the property, where the best view is, sun exposure, and more. The result? We build decks that help you live the lifestyle that you want all year long.
Going Beyond a Place to Grill
When you picture a deck, what looms largest in your imagination? Chances are good it’s a big, stainless-steel grill. While we love to cook outdoors just as much as anyone else, there is so much more that your deck can be other than a support for that grill. We specialize in transforming your outdoor spaces into living spaces, and that means going above and beyond the norm.
We can custom design and create entire outdoor “rooms”, complete with furniture, firepits, tables, and even hot tubs. Why should you be limited to the ordinary? We help you go beyond and to create the ideal outdoor living environment to suit your needs and your lifestyle. Whether you love family game night under the starts, adore entertaining friends and family, or just want a tranquil place where you can get away from the world, Patriot Contracting can help.
Choosing Your Material
We believe that it is our responsibility to help you make the most informed decision possible when it comes to designing and building your deck. While our designers will create options that suit your home and your property, you also need to know a few things about the materials on offer. Our craftsman can create decks from a wide range of materials, but each brings something different to the table.
Hardwood: If you’re looking for traditional deck-building material that will stand the test of time, hardwood is one of the best choices. We prefer to use Brazilian hardwoods due to their strength, resilience, resistance to weathering and pests, and other benefits. You can choose from a wide variety of species to get the right grain pattern and color, as well.
Synthetic: Once, natural wood was your only option when it came to deck building materials, but that has changed today. You’ll find a wide range of synthetic options on the market that offer good durability, reduced maintenance, and complete resistance to pests. Some of the highest-quality materials come with a fade and stain resistance warranty that spans 25 years, ensuring that you have a worry-free outdoor living area you can enjoy for decades to come.
Conventional Pine: Pine is the wood of choice for most construction projects. However, we feel that most of what’s on the market is too commonplace for our customers. Instead, we carefully source only the highest-quality pine for use in our projects that will stand the test of time without warping, splitting, or twisting.
Additional Space Below the Deck
Depending on the height of your deck, it may be possible to increase your outdoor living space even more. We can create a watertight deck floor, which allows you to use the space below the deck for additional living area. Your options here are limitless – a little concrete and you have the floor for an outdoor kitchen, or an expansion of your deck space for entertaining. Transform it into an outdoor kitchen, a sun space, or just use it for storage if you prefer.
