Have you decided to add a deck to your house? Decks can dramatically increase
space and provide an enjoyable outdoor area for cookouts, relaxation, etc. There
are many different things involved in building a deck, if you have decided to do
it yourself instead of hiring a building company, prepare yourself for some
hard, but extremely gratifying work.
First of all you need to decide on the size of your deck, which will vary
depending on things such as what you plan to use your deck for, the amount of
space you have available, and how much money you want to spend. Deciding on the
right size for your deck is crucial, generally speaking, it would be better to
have extra space than not enough, so you should aim big. An ideal form of
building a deck is using concrete.
Despite the fact that concrete decks are a significantly more expensive
investment than wooden decks, they must be seen as exactly that Ė an investment!
A concrete deck will last much longer than a wooden deck, and does not require
yearly maintenance. In general, a concrete deck is a much stronger and lasting
structure. Before construction of your deck begins, be sure to have a detailed
layout of what you want it to look like.
Careful planning will help ensure your deck turns out as beautiful as you want
it. Decide ahead of time if you intend to have trees and plants on your deck,
and plan for these, small areas of dirt can be left within the structure, or for
smaller plants you may wish to simply build planters on top of the deck.

The concrete contractor is usually capable of undertaking outdoor projects like
building patios, driveways or pool decks. The extent of concrete work depends on
the specifications given by the clients who should understand the different
concrete jobs available to them. Not all repairs need total dismantling of the
concrete. Oftentimes, what the repairs on concrete structures really need is
just the staining, resurfacing, or concrete stamping on top of the old
Your driveway is your welcome mat, the pathway to your home. It may be a
broad expanse or curved and
winding, disappearing among the shrubbery or a straight shot to a waiting
garage. Whatever the profile, your
driveway presents landscaping opportunities to enhance your home and its
character. While you must
consider the drainage you will need, the stability of your soil, and the freeze
and thaw cycles in your region,
there are many materials and techniques available to help you create a driveway
that goes a step beyond
asphalt to accent. Bricks may be among the simplest of all paving and patio
materials to work with. They
come in standard sizes and regular forms, they are manufactured in a variety of
colors, and they present a
non-slip surface for cars and people. Bricks, like flagstone, cobblestone, or
pavers, should be laid in a stable
bed of stone topped with bedding sand. Creative homeowners can devise geometric
patterns that repeat
along the length of the driveway. For older and historic homes, try copying a
pattern from photos of historic
places. For local interest, look to area foundries for the bricks they produce.
Some demolition companies
also sell old bricks that are perfect for quaint older structures. There are
distinct advantages to using brick,
as they can be replaced when damaged. For a more permanent set, the bricks can
be laid in a concrete
/sand bed and allowed to set up from below as well as between the bricks.
Concrete is far more versatile and aesthetic than people give it credit for. It
can be colored, shaped, given
surface contours and textures, or even embedded with stone or aggregates to give
it a composite look.
Quikcrete sells shape grids that allow you to create a decorative pattern on
your walk or drive as simply as
pouring concrete. They also feature color mix that you can add directly to the
concrete. Some homeowners
may opt to create preformed concrete pavers using molds. These can be lined with
a layer of crushed stone,
shell, or aggregate prior to the pour. Once the mold is removed, your pavers
will have a pebbled surface.
Concrete drives can also be stamped or imprinted with a pattern to look like
stone, cobble, or brick. How you
brush or finish the concrete once poured determines how slippery and uniform the
surface of your driveway
will be. Take into account the activities that go on before deciding upon the
surface of your driveway.
Basketball is easier on a smooth surface, while walking to the mailbox or
bringing your car up an incline is
easier on a less slick surface.
Stamped concrete Stone driveways are very handsome and easy to maintain.
Depending on the look you
desire, you can create a driveway with any color stone from white to dark grey
and black. Visit a stone shop,
quarry, or landscape yard to see the available colors and sizes of stone. Ask
which are local and which can
be mixed and matched to give a varied, more colorful look. Beware of round
stones, as they tend to roll away
from high spots. Good driveway stones should be angular so that they will stay
put. Smaller stones may work
their way through larger ones and into the bedding soil below. Whatever stone
you choose, be prepared to
restone every year or so to maintain the surface. Stone gives excellent drainage
and a beautiful look for the
home. Think twice before building a white gravel drive, however, because a stone
driveway is virtually
impossible to clean.
Interlocking pavers are smart and elegant. They are manufactured to withstand
weight and weather. They
are laid in bedding sand just as flagstone, cobblestone, and brick, but they
interlock to provide a perfect,
stable fit. Stamped concrete pavers however provides a much more durable
driveway, no cracks for weeds
to push through and zero maintenance. They come in a wide variety of colors,
shapes, textures, and
designs. With pavers homeowners can create a rustic or period look quite easily.
Pavers are wonderful for
intricate designs and difficult applications. They are easy to maintain and,
like other applications that give
onto a bedding layer, provide excellent drainage for your driveway.
The truly lyrical driveway in our mind's eye is still the dirt drive with the
grass between the tracks. This type of
driveway is especially well suited to a rustic or country home. The key to this
look is to maintain the grass
between the tracks and along the sides of the drive. Provide good drainage to
the sides of the tracks as well
since compressed earth may encourage pooling. Another option for the two-track
drive, is to lay strips of
concrete where the tire tracks lay, while maintaining the grass and plantings
between and to the sides of the
Stone and brick concrete stamped driveways
Have fun with your driveway and allow it to develop a style of its own. Mixing
stamped concrete stones
together, stones and concrete, concrete and stamped pavers is a great way to
achieve the look you want.
Entryways might require concrete. A basketball area could be surfaced in smooth
concrete while the rest of
the drive is done in decorative pavers or brick. Whatever your choice, before
deciding to lay down a
driveway, look at the possibilities. Your driveway is, after all, the first
glimpse of your personality that visitors
