Patios – a Backyard Retreat
Call Authentic Homescapes today if you want to upgrade your outdoor patio. It’s more than just an investment. We believe a well-installed concrete patio is more than a simple home structure; it provides a lifetime’s worth of gratification. You’ll never have to worry about the weather or the slope of your landscape. You’ll never have to worry about the place: you can pour concrete just about anywhere, including steep slopes and backyards. All you have to do is lounge, dine, entertain and relax with minimal maintenance or upkeep.
Many materials are available for patio construction, but concrete is quite versatile, maintaining its appeal and property for a long time. Concrete has a classic light grey hue, but it can be spruced up using different tints to give it a more dramatic appearance. Concrete is smooth, clean, and alluring when designed correctly. By casting it, you can create geometrical and curvilinear shapes. Authentic Homescapes has a wide range of concrete designs for your patios.
Concrete is relatively cheap, has a sense of durability, and offers permanence, especially if you hire professionals to do it for you. If you are an ambitious do-it-yourselfer, we hate to break it to you, but designing concrete patios is not a simple task, nor is it a one-person affair. If you are not confident in your skills, you may want to call Authentic Homescapes today and let us take the task off of you. Our team knows the specific techniques that must be applied during the curing process to create a polished, sophisticated touch that you may not be able to do yourself.
Pouring a concrete slab is pretty straightforward, but you’ll need the skill and expertise of professionals to add textures and patterned designs. Depending on your creative intuition and capacity to spot potential, we can help you create a patio that is nothing short of attractive and entertaining.
Patios shouldn’t be limited to catchalls for unwanted furniture, your kids’ toys, and a pet playground. A well-designed and installed patio can be the focal point for parties, entertainment, family bonding time, and some quiet alone time. Authentic Homescapes has, for several years now, taken a keen interest in concrete patios and their overall potential. The results, shown in our clients’ designs, have been nothing short of awe-inspiring.
We’ve also noticed that concrete patios are a popular choice among homeowners. Recent research done by the National Association of Home Builders reports that concrete was the leading material used in creating patios in 2012. Poured concrete was the most popular outdoor technique used in patio creation in high-end construction sites. Elite landscapers and many homeowners are attracted to concrete patios because of their flexibility and versatility. Durability and permanence make concrete patios attractive too.
We can help you integrate different materials and designs into an otherwise cold and dull concrete patio. We love built-in benches that provide a great contrast to the grey background, wooden furniture to give the concrete slab a relaxing and casual feel, or butting up the patio to create remarkable structures such as houses or fences. There is so much to choose from.
We also fix old, stained or cracked patios. The process is called concrete resurfacing. It’s the easiest way to give your patio a fresh glow and make it look new. Once the patio has been resurfaced, it can be stamped or colored too. Plant integration between patio expansion joints is another popular trend. The plants break the monotony of a continuous paving with a green, lush scenery. Other homeowners prefer artificial turfs between the joints. This is especially common in dry areas where water conservation is a huge priority.
