We have worked on hundreds of patios and decks over the years, and pride ourselves as experts in the industry. Let’s get started with our 10 helpful tips when building your new patio.

Tip 1: Think low maintenance. By this we mean use artificial turf in and around patio areas, instead of actual grass. This will save water and thousands in maintenance over the years.

Tip 2: Extend the year round use of your patio with a cover or enclosure, such as the popular Alumawood patio covers. Reduce your families chance of being rained upon, or alternatively use it for a break from the hot San Diego sun.

Tip 3: Set the tone and design with various color and texture landscape pavers, brick, cement or stone. Varying your pattern and colors can bring beautiful and memorable design into your patio project.

Tip 4: Hire a licensed and insured patio construction company. This tip can not only save you a ton of headaches when something goes wrong or if someone gets hurt on your property. Ensure whoever you hire is licensed and insured in San Diego county.

Tip 5: Careful with wood patio choices in San Diego. Due to the destructive force of termites here in San Diego, make sure to review your wood choices and perhaps choose an alterative like synthetics, concrete, brick, or paver stones.
