Foundation Options

Every great outdoor room begins with a foundation of some sort. What will you choose for the surface under your furniture and where you walk? There are numerous deck or patio options that can be designed to meet your individual style.

Patios are an excellent starting point for any outdoor room.They can be designed in any shape or size. Most patios today use brick, stone, slate or concrete (plain, stained or stamped) as the foundation.

Decks come in all types, shapes, sizes and materials.The type of deck you build depends on your personal preference and style, as well as the style of your home and the outside landscape. Perhaps you build a platform deck low to the ground, or maybe a loft deck that you enter from the 2nd floor of the home. Some decks wrap around a corner of the home, and some use multiple levels or contain privacy screens.

There are many options for the surface of the deck from standard, pressure-treated wood; to cedar, redwood or composite materials; to recycled plastic. Look at the various options and costs before deciding what is right for your home and budget.
