What time of year should you lay a patio?

Laying a patio in the spring or summer is popular, as it is natural to associate outdoor projects with warm weather.

But did you know that fall and winter could be great times to get in touch with patio contractors to install your patio in the off season? There are a couple of great reasons to consider building your patio in the fall or winter. As we know, springtime in Charlotte can be excessively rainy. Installing a patio in the spring can wreak havoc in your yard. And laying a patio in the summer can be downright inconvenient. Wouldn’t you rather enjoy your patio in the summer? Planning your Charlotte patio design now and installing it this fall or winter is also beneficial, as the vegetation will be dormant, and less likely to become damaged during construction.

Where is the best place to put a patio?

When planning your patio design, your Archadeck Design Consultant will scrutinize your property to determine the proper placement of your new patio. But deciding where to put your patio is not solely based on what lies outside your home. As experienced patio contractors, we know that a patio should be placed to suit accessibility from inside your home. This is not to say that every patio we install is placed right outside the back door. There are instances where the patio is installed completely detached from the home. The great part is, through our comprehensive consultation process, we will be able to discern your ideal patio design, including shape, size, orientation, and more!

Should I hire patio contractors to lay my patio?

Is it possible to lay your patio yourself? Of course, but to ensure that every design detail is considered, and every building standard is met, it is advisable to hire a licensed and insured patio contractor for your project. Not only do experienced patio contractors have the necessary skills and expertise to ensure that your patio is built to the highest standard, but they also know the local building codes, permitting laws, setback requirements, and other regulations that must be followed. By hiring a licensed and insured patio contractor, you can have peace of mind knowing that your project is in good hands and that you won't have to worry about any legal or financial issues down the line. So if you want to ensure a successful and stress-free patio project, be sure to choose a reputable and experienced patio contractor who is licensed and insured.
