Kick Your Summer Off With a New Patio in Vancouver WA

May. 28th 2015

One of the best ways to improve the landscaping around your Portland or Vancouver area home is to add a new patio or deck. Not only can patios add to the beauty of your outdoor surroundings but they can also provide new functionality. Using your BBQ grill and entertaining guests can be much easier with a great new patio or deck.

There are a lot of options for patios and decks, including cement pavers, wood, or composite materials. However, one of the most durable and longest lasting materials to use is concrete. Maybe you think a gray slab of concrete is not very exciting. It’s true, that a typical concrete slab might not look great, but actually, when it comes to concrete patios there are so many options to choose from.

At Direct Finish Construction, we have experience pouring patios large and small, in all different shapes, sizes and colors. We can also add many different stamp designs, which can give you a unique look that will add a lot of beauty to your outdoor space. Concrete is also one of the easiest materials to take care of. It doesn’t stain or rot like wood and if you need to clean it off you just have to get out your power washer. It is also durable to just about any type of traffic you can imagine.

Overall, concrete is a great choice for a new patio or deck and it doesn’t have to be bland either. With so many color, design and stamp options available, you can get the perfect new patio for your home or other Portland/Vancouver area location.
