Should I Put a Stone Patio Under my Deck?
August 4, 2017
Wondering if it makes sense to install a new patio underneath your deck? You should. There are countless benefits to adding a stone patio under your deck, here are a few of the reason you need to seriously consider this option.
Reduces Weeds or Moss
The installation of a new deck will change the growing environment underneath and most likely kill off what grass was there. Over time, this grass will be replaced with either weeds, moss, or mud. So to reduce the presence of weeds or moss, simply have a new patio installed underneath your deck!
If you’re having a deck install already, then installing a patio under your deck will save you money in the long-run. The decking and patio installation company has to work into their price the cost of gas to get the supplies needed for the job, the cost of travel to your house, and the cost of labor to get equipment in place. If you can cut some of their costs, they can pass those saving on to you.
Helps to Mitigate Water Issues
If you’re having water issues, you can kill two birds with one stone as most Maryland patio contractors will ensure your patio has a proper flow of water in addition to installing the new patio. This obviously isn’t going to be the main reason you run out and get a patio, but it certainly helps as now you’ve also solved your water pooling problem.
Great Entertaining Space with Shade
Sometimes, entertaining on your deck can get to be too hot. Luckily, right underneath the deck is a large shaded area with a built-in roof. Turn this area into a gorgeous entertaining space (with built-in shade) by having a patio contractor in Maryland build you a new patio!
Improve Resale Value
When it comes to home re-sale value, a dirt spot underneath a finished deck will not go as far as a stone patio. It looks cleaner, and it offers additional entertainment space which anyone can appreciate.
So at the end of the day, should you put a stone patio under your deck? Of course you should. While it may not be in the cards at the time you install your deck due to budget; that doesn’t mean you can’t do it 5 years down the road!
