If you’re considering creating a new outdoor living space, you have two options: patio or deck. Determining which option is best for you will require you to consider your budget, backyard terrain, decorative preferences and need.
Decks are a good choice if your property has various terrains. Decks can extend over essentially any landscape, making it a good choice for sloping yards and elevated installations. Material used for your deck will depend upon your budget. Pressure treated and cedar are more cost effective than composite decking but will require more maintenance over the years.
Construction of decks are typically shorter than a same size patio which means less labor time and cuts down the overall project cost and duration.
