Here at ASAP Home Improvements on the Gold Coast, we will help you decide upon the ideal patio to suit your needs and save you the stress of deciding what you should get, and the inconvenience of buyer’s remorse.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DECKS, PERGOLAS AND PATIOS?
We’re taking you back to the basics here, but for those who may be a little confused:
Decks from ASAP Home Improvements are typically made from timber and can be used in a number of different ways. Some clients require a deck that will extend the living area of their home and others may just prefer the timber look over stone, tiling or concrete. Generally decks are connected to the house but some clients build them separately as garden features.
A pergola is not attached to a building and is similar to a gazebo. Pergolas were originally used for climbing plants to grow up and over as usually the roof will consist only of beams.
The word ‘patio’ is Spanish for courtyard. Typically clients request patio’s to be covered with concrete, covercrete or stone slabs. Other variations are designed with cobblestones, tiles or bricks. Patios are often placed at ground level or slightly higher as the materials used tend to be heavier than those used for a deck.
DECIDING ON THE ULTIMATE RENOVATION FOR YOUR SUITABILITY
When you are deciding on the final items for your outdoor renovation, you do need to consider any terrain limitations, or local building legislations that may affect your planning.
During your initial meeting with ASAP Home Improvements, we will perform a thorough assessment of your situation and suitability to ensure your new deck or patio is 100% appropriate for your lifestyle requirements. By sitting down with you and discussing how you wish to use your space, we will be able to narrow down the best way for our professionals to complete the job within the allocated timeframe and budget that has been set.
WHAT ABOUT AN OUTDOOR ROOF?
Let’s not forget the cover for your new patio area. This isn’t necessarily compulsory, but for some clients, the need for a little extra UV protection could save you from some nasty sunburn and cool down your guests at the same time. They can also double as rain shields when the subtropical summers we get on the Gold Coast are in full swing.
