Upgrading your House with a Stone Patio
A patio can be a great addition to any home, providing a place to entertain guests, unwind after a long day or add extra space to your house. It’s a pretty broad term but usually, a patio is a paved area outside a house used for recreational purposes and may sometimes feature a roof cover. Being very popular these days, a patio can give quality to a home and also raise the selling price. If you’re thinking of installing one then professional masonry companies like Centuria Masonry can provide full planning and installation to meet your needs. Still not convinced? Take a look at some of the main advantages a patio can bring to your home.
A great place to relax
Having your very own patio provides a wide open space to enjoy the fresh air without worrying about rainfall or sun exposure. There’s nothing like stretching out on a deck chair in your own patio on a sunny afternoon. With just some patio furniture or deck chairs, you can create a relaxing area free from the stress of life.
Restyling your home
Installing a patio can be a great way to start a new building project that will give new life to your home. Many qualified masonry companies can provide a wide selection of different tiles or bricks to create a unique design just for you. Interlocking paving stones have always been popular, creating a flat even surface for use on any occasion
An entertainment area
Planning a barbeque or a family-friends get-together? Having your own patio will provide the perfect place to entertain guests with plenty of open space in a tranquil setting. Whether it comes to hosting a large group or just a friend over for a few beers, a patio is a perfect addition to any home.
Will raise the resale value
If you’re thinking of reselling then a patio can dramatically increase the value of the house. Many buyers today are looking for an entertainment area for guests so a patio will ensure your house flies off the market.
Extra space and security
If your home is a bit tight on space then a patio will allow some extra room for storage or for hanging laundry to dry. Not only that but if you decide to build an enclosed patio with a sliding door then it can provide an additional layer of defence against intruders. A good quality composite door will have the same multi-point locks as the main door giving you peace of mind.
Durable and long lasting
Until a few years ago wood patios were in fashion. Now those owners are having to replace them due to rot and warped wood. Thanks to new techniques in colouring and stamping, concrete patios are more versatile than ever before. This gives great versatility to how you design them and any damage can be easily repaired.
