Your outside space has multiple uses depending on how you plan it. But no matter how much space you do have, choosing a patio for your garden has multiple benefits. It offers you an entertainment space for friends and family and with the addition of a patio cover, it can even be used in bad weather. You can also create outside kitchen areas with barbecues or pizza ovens so that your patio can almost become an extra room for your home. And with so many materials and associated finishes, there are multiple design options.
The major decision you will make regarding your Livermore patio is which material to use. Our experienced staff will advise you on the many different textures, styles, and colors available with each material so that you can make an informed decision on which material best suits you and your garden. Some of the most popular materials include:
- Natural or cut paving stones
- Precast concrete pavers or interlocking units
- Poured concrete slabs
- Crushed stone
Our staff can also show you examples of each material so that you get a better idea of how your finished patio may look.
Stamped Concrete Patios
Stamped concrete involves creating patterns on a freshly poured concrete surface using specially fabricated wooden stamps. The end result of these stamps can be truly breathtaking, and it is hard to distinguish a stamped concrete surface from the materials they mimic unless you look closely. Stamped concrete can look great in a range of residential and commercial settings but we find that they are particularly suitable for concrete patios and decking. And if you do not see a stamp that fits your own design ideas, then speak to our staff about customizing stamps which will be unique to your patio.
Colors and Stains
As the leading provider of concrete services in the Livermore area, we can also color or stain your concrete patio to almost any shade you can think of. There are two types of concrete staining; water-based staining and acid-based staining. Water-based staining comes in a variety of colors but does not offer any real protection to your concrete so will need sealants added once it has dried. Acid-based staining penetrates the actual surface of your concrete and won’t chip or fade. But this latter staining uses dangerous chemicals and needs to be applied carefully and safely. Our team use all required equipment and conform to all safety regulations.
