Titan provides patio installation. A patio is a paved area adjacent to the house, or in the yard, and it is built at ground level (as opposed to a deck, which is built off the ground). Patios are usually made out of concrete, pavers, stone, tile, brick, pebbles, rock or pea gravel. Patios are an affordable home improvement that provides a place to relax, dine, and to entertain family and friends. Patios can also be built in a classic courtyard shape, which is a paved, enclosed area surrounded by a building that is open to the sky. Courtyards have been in existence for thousands of years, and offer such universal comforts as air, light, privacy, security, and tranquility. Patio coverings like a pergola, gazebo, lattice, or solar patio cover, provide shade relief on hot summer days, and extend your outdoor living season. To add more value to your home and patio, consider installing an outdoor grill, fire pit, water feature, walkways, garden borders, pool, and dining area. Patios also decrease grass lawn maintenance.
