Decking vs Patio

Decking or Patio Harwich?

You have identified a space in your garden in Harwich that is the perfect position for outside relaxation, and you want to install some decking or a patio. But, how should you determine which is the better option?

If it's down to initial expense, then decking gets the vote. Decking is less expensive and frequently easier to install than a similar size stone patio. Over time the maintenance costs for a timber decking area can be more expensive, however much of this can be reduced by using rot-proof, composite materials. There will be routine maintenance on both patios and decking; painting or staining, the sealing of surfaces etc, which is required to keep them in their best condition.

Slabbed patios are the preferred choice for folks wanting a more durable surface which can tolerate heavy usage regardless of the weather in Harwich. A professionally installed patio will last for a lifetime, as long as the base and foundations have been prepared properly using suitable materials, and even if a slab or tile breaks, it can be changed with relative ease. This isn't the case for a cracked or broken deck plank, which will result in a weak area in the decking which causes a risk and must be replaced straight away. Both patios and decking are super alternatives that will provide you with an outdoor area for the entire family to enjoy for many years to come.
