Fairfield Patio Contractors
We believe that one of the ways you can create an elegant yet functional space is by installing a patio. A well-constructed patio elevates the look of any landscape while at the same time being incredibly versatile.
There are different types of materials that can be used to construct a patio. This includes;
- Clay brick
For patio ideas as well as a free estimate, get in touch to schedule a meeting where one of our patio construction professionals will go over the design and build process at no charge.
This is a natural stone that is created through the gradual accumulation of mineral, clay, sand, and organic sediments. The most common colors available include buff, blue and red. Flagstone is very popular among homeowners for its timeless and earthy appearance. Flagstones are hard to work with and you need a professional to help with the design of the stones as they are subject to splitting as well as erosion.
At Fairfield Masonry, we ensure that our flagstone patio designs cater for adequate drainage.
If you are looking for a unique look that matches both contemporary and traditional architecture, then you should definitely go for clay brick. Installing clay brick is easy work as they are light in weight hence lower labor costs.
Another advantage of clay bricks is that they maintain their rich color. The use of mortar is also not always necessary as they can be laid on a bed of sand.
Clay bricks give homeowners the freedom to work with a variety of designs including round and rectangular designs.
Patio pavers come in different varieties including:
- Recycled plastics
- Natural stone
For patio installations, we recommend either concrete or stone pavers, which have greater durability than the other materials listed above. Most homeowners prefer having concrete patio pavers as they are easy to install. Concrete patio pavers also come in various shapes, sizes, and colors.
We always insist on installing pressure-treated lumber along the border to maintain your patio’s shape.
Perfect for homeowners who want to elevate the look of their property while staying within budget, concrete patios are considered very affordable to build. With proper installation and maintenance, concrete patios will last for ages. You need to be aware that concrete is susceptible to cracking with freeze and thaw cycles.
Gravel is a patio material that is easy and quick to install. It comes in two types:
- Crushed stone
- River rock
When properly installed, gravel acts as an efficient deterrence of weed growth not to mention it offers excellent drainage.
