  • Decks Vs. Patios: The Perfect One For Your Home

Patios and decks have always been a timeless addition to American homes. After all, they’re spaces where you can lounge with your family and friends, especially during these times when we can’t go out too much. Aside from providing a great outdoor space for recreational purposes, it also boosts your home’s resale value and curb appeal. However, which is the best option for your home? The top deck, patio, and siding contractors, PJ Sullivan Exteriors, helps you with this decision.

Decks Vs. Patios

What’s the Main Difference?

While both options are choices you can’t go wrong with, your choice will heavily depend on the purpose of building it. To begin, patios can be attached or detached from your home. They’re mostly designed with landscaping as a focal point and are built using different materials, such as concrete, tile, stone or brick.

Decks, on the other hand, are attached to the main building by exterior renovation contractors, and are mainly made out of wood, composite wood material or vinyl. Decks are oftentimes elevated and used to increase your viewing area. Both of these options are great outdoor living spaces that allow for specific activities, such as cooking, working out or as a lounge area.

There Is No Wrong Choice

No matter which route you take, you can’t go wrong with either one of them. To help you decide on the better option to undertake, you’ll need to think of the activities that you will be doing in this area regularly. Make sure that you consult your exterior contractor and voice out your concerns so that they have a great understanding of what your purpose is with this project and guide you accordingly.

We were so happy with the roofing, siding and pertego job PJ Sullivan did for us. We couldn’t have asked for a better company to do this for us. Pete was very attentive and visited our home at least 3 times a week and that was important for us.
