Patio and Deck Options
We've Got the Perfect Pool Deck and Patio Options for Every Chicago Backyard
Brick pavers are becoming increasingly popular due to the advances in their color, shape and texture. They can be made to resemble natural stone and used for patios and retaining walls, or even for fire pits, fireplaces and outdoor kitchens. Pavers are a nice choice because they have a natural non-skid finish, which provides a sure footing for children and adults, especially on wet surface around the edge of the pool.
Natural stone creates an elegant and luxurious feel around any pool. Our stone patios are either set in a compacted bed of gravel and sand, or they are mortared down to a slab of concrete. The method used typically depends on the look and feel of the environment requested by the customer. Natural stone can also be used to finish raised spas, fire pits, fireplaces, grill islands and outdoor kitchens.
Concrete: Regular and Stamped
Concrete is the most economical option for a pool deck or patio. For those interested in safety, regular concrete comes with a broom finish that will provide a non-skid surface, but it may not be as aesthetically pleasing as other options.
For those wanting something more lavish without the cost, stamped concrete is an option. There are many types of patterns and colors that can be used to create a dynamic look for the backyard. There is one thing to keep in mind when it comes to stamped concrete: Sealers are used on the concrete to bring out the colors, but these can make the surface a bit slippery.
