Patio Materials We Use

There are many different types of patio materials, all of them offering their own stylistic traits to your home. They range in design options and prices, with each meeting the demands of your outdoor living space. The most traditional patio materials are either concrete or pavers. Both of these material choices are popular amongst homeowners. Each offers its own unique look and price tag suitable for a wide scope of residents. Of course, these materials are not your only choices. Here are the materials we are capable of using for your patio:

  • Gravel
  • Concrete
  • Stamped concrete
  • Pavement
  • Brick
  • Natural stone
  • Tile
  • Pavers


Deck Materials We Use

Decks are constructed using one of two material types: natural wood and composite materials. Natural wood is popular for many as it provides the beauty they crave. Decks can be made from almost any wood species, but redwood, cedar, and mahogany are the most common. Pressure-treated wood is also another common, budget-friendly choice for homeowners. This type of wood is made from wood species, such as yellow pine. The previous wood types are more suitable for adding elegance and having a larger budget.

Natural wood is not your only choice when it comes to deck materials. There are also composite materials, which look like the real thing. However, composite materials are made of recycled wood, plastics, and additives. Composite wood decking costs more but requires a lot less maintenance. You won’t have to repaint or reseal the wood as it ages. All it requires is a little sweeping, and it will maintain the natural wood look. 

Patio & Deck Covers

In addition to the patios and decks our exterior contractors build, we also build covers for such outdoor living spaces. If you’re looking to add some shade or element protection to your outdoor living spaces, these types of patio or deck covers are perfect solutions.

Patio Roof: It is the most common type of patio cover out there. Patio roofs are either attached or detached to your home. They feature the same type of roofing material as your home and offer complete protection from the elements. They can be made of metal, wood, or composite materials. Patio roofs are highly durable and customizable for homeowners.

Pergola: A pergola is a detached or attached structure with open rafters rather than a solid roof. It is commonly made of wood, but metal is also popular. While pergolas do not offer complete protection from the elements, they are popular choices amongst homeowners looking to maintain a connection to the outdoors while enjoying their patio.

Awning: An awning is an attached patio cover angled downward to shield against the elements. Awnings are made of durable materials, such as vinyl or acrylic. They may either be permanent structures or are capable of being retractable. When choosing a retractable awning, you have the choice of automatic or manual options.

Shade Sail: A shade sail is a fabric material stretched across the length of your patio. The fabric is usually made of similar materials as awnings. A shade sail can be permanent or movable. It will be anchored to a handful of points on your property. They are one of the simplest and most affordable patio covers.

How much are patio covers?

It depends on the size of your patio and the type of patio cover you choose. Patio roof covers are more expensive since they require more materials and are often larger. Shade sails, awnings, and pergolas are less expensive options, with each varying in price based on design and building materials.

Do I need a permit to build a patio cover?

In most cases, yes. Shade sails and awnings are less likely to need a building permit, but patio roofs and pergolas certainly will. When you need a building permit for your project, Space Construction will obtain them. You don’t have to lift a finger when it comes to getting building permits and scheduling inspections.

How long does it take to build patio covers?

It depends on the type of patio cover you are building. Patio roofs typically take about three weeks, while other options take less time. Of course, it greatly depends on the extent of the patio cover project. For an accurate timeframe on your project, give us a call.
