This project was to build an extension off the back screened in patio. We chose stepping stones to build the platform for the patio extension. These are similar to building a patio extension with pavers, but the stepping stones are larger. Of course one can try to build these on their own, often when we go into a homeowners house and they have tried to do such a large job, they have missed some of the impotant steps we know is important.
While creating, we used a different technique that we’ve never used before and it turned out really good and stable.
You could use an extension like this for gatherings, kids play area, add a move around fire pit and enjoy the cool winter nights, and so much more. This is a great alternative to building a deck.
It’s a great way to have an outside bbq area. With a patio this size, your imagination is the limit. No matter the time of year, a patio like this can be enjoyed. Need other home improvements? Call on us today!

These Are Some of The Benefits of Adding A Patio to Your Home
There are many benefits of adding a deck, patio, or porch to your home. Some of the benefits include:
The increase of value in your home
When you add a patio or deck on to your home you will benefit financially if you ever decide to sell. Most homeowners recoup 70% of the cost to build the patio, deck, or porch after they have sold the home.

When looking to build a deck, patio, or porch on to your home you should always consider adding details and landscape that complement your home. Many homeowners decide to match the railing of their deck to their window shutters to make it more appealing but still natural.
Patios provide extra room to entertain during all seasons. They are great to host birthday parties, barbecues, and any other outdoor event that you would want to have.
Patios, decks, and porches are meant to be constructed with durable materials which make them extremely low maintenance when maintaining, and cleaning, but last a long time.
