Building Materials Guide

DECKING

Building a deck will require you to select a decking material, considering factors such as cost, beauty, durability, and availability.

Wood

  • Most basic, and lowest-cost, deck material is treated softwood such as spruce, pine, or fir

  • Easy to work with because it’s soft which makes it easy to screw down and easier to cut

  • Unmaintained decks are prone to shrinking, warping, and splintering, and cracks can develop

  • Annually sealed/maintained decks last over 25 years

Composite

  • Available in a variety of colors, patterns, grains, and textures

  • Weather, pest, and mold-resistant

  • Besides the initial, one-time investment at installation, it requires little maintenance

  • Composite decking provides a range of environmentally sustainable and eco-friendly options

WALL STONE

A natural stone wall can be hidden in a landscape by its surrounds or can be designed to stand out. That's the beauty of natural stone, it works well in any environment and stands the test of time.

Stacked Stone

  • Stacked stone is not prone to shifting and cracking at different weather cycles

  • They lend a rustic look to your landscaping while complementing all architectural styles

  • Colors and types can be varied to create a unique natural look

  • Perfect for low retaining walls and low seat walls

Decorative Concrete Block

  • Less expensive than other design materials, more durable, and virtually maintenance free

  • Blocks are made from poured concrete in a wide range of colors, patterns and textures

  • Turns a sloped exterior space into eye catching landscape design with function and beauty

  • Their uniformity can take away from the overall uniqueness of your wall

Masonry

  • Consists of building structures from single units that are laid and bound together with mortar

  • Offers a high resistance against rotting, pests, weather, and natural disasters

  • A disadvantage of building with masonry is the high cost of both materials and labor

  • A variety of colors, patterns and textures compliment any style

Boulders

  • Keep soil in place and enhance the aesthetic appeal for the exterior of the home

  • Properly installed boulder walls are budget-friendly and are very long lasting

  • Using boulders ensures that excess water can drain through the wall

  •  A natural solution that comes in a variety of sizes and colors

PAVING

Adding pavers to your sidewalk, driveway or patio is a great way to improve your home's curb appeal. Well designed pavers can enhance your landscaping, making its overall appearance more attractive.

PA Flagstone

  • A natural, organic look due to their shape and earthy shades of browns, reds, grays and blues

  • Selecting flagstone in a random rectangle pattern is ideal for creating a formal, organized look

  • For a casual appearance, an irregular pattern emphasizes the natural shape of the stone

  • Flagstone is expensive, many homeowners choose to use it in conjunction with other materials

Clay Brick

  • The appearance of brick pavers comes naturally from the rich color and beauty of clay material

  • It has the ability to withstand very high loading levels

  • Laid easily in any kind of weather, keep budgeting and time management issues in check

  • Eco-friendly product that can retain its finish and color for a long period of time

Concrete Pavers

  • Sensible and an aesthetically attractive choice for all outdoor surfaces

  • Costs much less than other paving products since they are manufactured with machines

  • Designing a custom look is made easy by the many shapes, patterns, and colors

  • Non-skid surface even when the pavers are wet

Belgian Block

  • Small blocks made from natural stone, uniform in size and shape

  • A well-built driveway or walkway can remain stable and functional for as long as 100 years

  • Can either be set in mortar or laid dry

  • Due to the high cost, consider installing Belgian Block on the apron, border, or as an in-lay

Travertine

  • A form of limestone with a natural weathered look that is both timeless and elegant

  • Finishes range from a polished, honed, brushed and tumbled

  • Available in tans and beiges, grays, and speckled off-white hues

  • Absorbs staining materials if left open without applying a sealant to protect it
