4 Reasons to Replace Your Wooden Deck with a Paver Patio

Is your current wooden deck splintering, splitting, warping or rotting?

Learn more about the reasons why you should consider replacing your wooden deck with a paver patio.

Less Maintenance

Wooden decks require annual maintenance that includes cleaning, staining and replacing worn or rotted deck boards. Once a paver patio is installed, little maintenance is required. A periodic resealing may be needed, but aside from resealing, an occasional pressure washing should be the only maintenance necessary.

More Cost-Effective

Pavers are highly weather resistant and will hold up to the elements better than wood. This means less money spent on repair and maintenance over a period of several years. While you will need to budget for costs associated with the demolition of your existing deck, repairs to the house siding or masonry, and steps to connect your new paver patio to the exterior of your home; the long term value will override any short-term difference in cost.

Be sure that a site evaluation is part of your initial discussion with a landscape designer in order to address any concerns about patio placement, grade and drainage. If you replace your wooden deck with a paver patio, you will experience a much better return on your investment when it comes time to sell your home as well.

Seamless Integration

A fire pit creates a warm outdoor gathering place for the family — for apparent reasons, wooden decks aren’t a good fit if you would like to integrate a fire pit into your outdoor living space. Stone steps can also be incorporated to add functionality and visual interest to your landscape design.

Range of Paver Styles & Colors

Brick, stone and concrete pavers are now available in a range of styles and colors that can compliment the exterior architecture of your home. Pavers can also be designed in a free-form manner that looks and feels more cohesive with the rest of your backyard landscape.

One thought on “4 Reasons to Replace Your Wooden Deck with a Paver Patio”

  1. I like the first reason of a paver patio is easier to maintain. There is so much we have to already do when it comes to maintaining our yards. My uncle is a landscaper and he likes to draw out what he is going to do before he starts actually putting things in their place. So then he has an idea of what he wants to do. http://www.emeraldirrigation.ca
