There is something special about spring and summer in Georgia. Heat and humidity can be a challenge, but at the end of the day, most would not trade the southern summer for anything. And with even warmer weather coming, nothing says Georgia fun like having friends and family around to celebrate. However, if your home’s design does not include an outdoor living space, then you might feel limited. But if you add a patio or deck to your home then you will be amazed at how much easier it is to enjoy the Georgia summer! Here are some advantages of adding a patio or deck to your home:

Advantages of a Patio or Porch for Georgia Homes

Outdoor Space

We all know that having more space is a benefit. But once a home is built, adding an extra interior room can be a challenge. However, we can often find space simply by adding a patio or deck. With a patio or deck, the entertainment elements are endless!

Curb Appeal

Having a dramatic or fully functional patio takes a rather boring home and gives a boost. Our team is especially skilled in crafting a patio that compliments your home’s architectural style as well as your landscape. This makes the patio a definite boon to the home’s curb appeal.

Resale Value

A patio or deck is an investment in your home and property. It makes your property more appealing to prospective buyers, so it is often one of the first things a realtor will mention.


It might sound odd, but a patio can serve as a bit of a crime preventative. Potential intruders will not be able to sneak up to your home, as a patio often leaves them more exposed to security features.

Transitional Space

A properly designed patio can serve as the perfect transition when coming inside from the outdoors. Add a roof or pergola to it and you have the ideal place to enjoy the outdoors without being in direct sun.

Extra Outdoor Kitchen

Add a grill, a table or two, and some comfy chairs and you have just the place to relax on a quiet evening – no matter what time of year it is!

Play Space

No matter one’s age, playing outside is fun. A porch is a great place to congregate for games of all types.
