When planning a new deck or patio for your home, there are many things to consider in order to get the best experience for your family.
Choose an area of your property that is easily accessible from the house. Plan around the position of mature trees, whose roots may complicate the process of surface leveling also, young trees that are nearby, as their growth over time may eventually disrupt your patio experience. While you can level the yard to a degree, a deck may be more appropriate than a patio for a landscape with a dramatically steep gradient.
2. Size and Shape
Having identified a location for the patio or deck installation, you must next decide on its size and shape. Remember that deck and patios come in different sizes. Seattle Rockeries is able to create many shapes, levels and stairways to create the best outdoor space for your deck and patio areas.
3. Prepare the Site
Seattle Rockeries excavates the site to a depth that will accommodate the patio thickness as well as a two- or three-inch sand base. For example, when using material that measures 4″ x 4″ x 8″, we will excavate to a depth of six or seven inches, digging a deeper trench around the perimeter that will allow us to build materials to create a border.
4. Set the Border
We begin by setting the border. The border will also provide a professional finish to your patio or deck. Steel, composite or wood beams may be used to frame the patio.
6. Lay the Deck or Patio
Once the border is in place, we lay the materials to create a solid deck, patio or outdoor structure. We make the most out of the outdoor space in your home in order to create new family spaces to enjoy with your family and friends. We build the sturdiest, longest lasting decks and patios in Washington state have a portfolio of happy home owners.
