Remember that barbecue you went to at a relative’s home, where you waited for an uncle to cook up some food outside, and then bring it in for you to eat at the dinner table, or in the living room? We didn’t think so. The most memorable summer gatherings start and end on a deck or patio. Employ 512 Outdoor and you can be the one hosting these events.
We have been working closely with our clients for years to provide a personalized experience, with a focus on customer service. For speed, quality, and that extra level of care, think of 512 Outdoor.
When considering adding a deck or patio to your property, we have two words for you to consider: aesthetics and value. The size of your yard doesn’t matter much when it comes to the skillful installation of a deck or patio, and with it you’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors more—whether that’s on your own or with friends and family.
At roughly $35 per square foot for a new deck, the return is well worth it when that deck makes back 77.3% of its cost in added home value. Patios generally cost even less, at $700-$2,000 for a new build. Of all the additions one can add to their home, these are two of the easiest and most affordable, with a multitude of rewards.
No matter how large the investment, when you’re putting work into your property you want to be sure that it’s going to be worth it. In this case, the news is good.
With proper care, your deck can last 25–40 years. With little to no care? About 10-15 years. Patios can last a lifetime. In fact, paving stone manufacturers offer a lifetime guarantee on their products to back this fact. Try to remove a patio from your property—it’s not simple.
So for your $700-$2,000, patios are the best bang for your buck.
Older decks and patios can of course start to fall into disrepair. Even newer builds have the potential to go wrong and need repairs immediately. 512 Outdoor is here to help.
When it comes to patios, the most common issues you’ll see in something so solid are cracks. If too much water is added to a concrete mix, these stones can crack within the first 30 days of installation. We ensure that our mixes are near-perfect every time so you don’t have this issue.
Decks can be more problematic, with nails popping out, sealer wearing off and steps needing re-anchoring. At times, boards can even become warped and over-used. We are equipped to handle all these situations to get your deck back to working condition.
