New Look with A Carvestone Patio

New Year, New Look with A Carvestone Patio

With the new year, many of us think about the year ahead and what we can do to improve our homes. Are our walkways and driveways looking tired? Have the pool deck and patio seen better days? Is it just time for a change?

When it’s time to upgrade your outdoor environment, here are 5 good reasons to choose carvestone as your concrete overlay option.

Durability. You want your investment to last, and we want our product to look great. An excellent finish comes from a great foundation, so we take as much care with the preparation of the existing surface as we do with the new overlay. We are so sure of this process, we are proud to offer residential owners a 7-year warranty on our product.

Color. With the carvestone process, you can choose the exact mixture you want. Our process allows us to get the color mix to be to the exact one you wish to complement your taste.

Pattern Choice. Whether you want precision squares, random pavers, or a combination of the two, you will get just the style you want with carvestone. All carving work is not by hand, not by form so you can decide the way you want the final finish to look.

Slip Resistance Surface. Carvestone is carved by hand and textured to be non-slip, and we also add non-slip agents into to sealant layer. This makes it an ideal surface for pool decks, patios, and walkways.

Heat Moderation. Everything gets hot in the Texas sun, but the unique properties of the carvestone technique make it a lot cooler than the standard alternatives such as stamped concrete, pavers or painted concrete.

3 Occasions When You Will Be Glad You Invested in an Outdoor Living Area

As spring rolls around each year, you promise yourself that this is the year you are going to make improvements to your outdoor space and enjoy it. For one reason or another, you put off adding that new patio or outdoor kitchen, and the summer passes you by. This year is the right time to improve your outdoor space with an outdoor living area. With a new outdoor kitchen, patio or fire pit, you can plan some amazing events this summer for your family and friends. Here are three occasions when you will love having an improved space.

 

Fourth of July

This year, celebrate the birth of the country in style with a new outdoor kitchen. You will be able to take your burgers and hotdogs to a whole new level. With an outdoor kitchen, you will have plenty of work area to prepare the sides that go with your meal. If you add an outdoor refrigerator, you will have space to keep easily spoiled items without constantly running in and out of the house.

 

Dinner Party

Invite your favorite friends over to enjoy your new outdoor space. Instead of hosting the dinner party inside, move your party out on to your new deck. If you invest in an outdoor kitchen, you can prepare the food there while visiting with your friends. You will find your friends angling for dinner invitations for the rest of the summer.

 

Kid’s Night

You do not want to leave the youngest members of your family out of the fun. Let your children invite their friends over for an evening of outdoor fun. You can bring out the board games and let the kids play on the new patio or enjoy a pizza cooked in your outdoor kitchen after running around the yard. At the end of the evening, you can start-up the fire pit, and let the kids make their own s’mores.

Why Carvestone is the Right Choice for Texas Outdoor Living Areas

The handcrafted Carvestone overlay is a perfect choice for active families in Central and Southeast Texas planning outdoor living areas. This 1/4 – 3/8″ overlay is versatile, unique, durable and safety conscious which is just the right mix for years of happy outdoor entertaining.

Carvestone’s slip resistant manufacturing process and non-skid finishing agent make outdoor kitchen spills less of a worry. Coordinating Carvestone wall panels enhance the sophisticated appearance of outdoor cooking spaces. Quick clean up makes it easy to spend more time enjoying the outdoors than cooped up inside during meal prep.

The texture of Carvestone overlay makes it wonderful for pool areas as well. After deep cleaning any existing concrete or pool coping, Allied Outdoor Solutions will apply a specialty bonding coat. Once cured this bonding coat becomes the base for the hand troweled, hand carved, Carvestone overlay. Adding a pergola is a great way to showcase a poolside oasis. With the focus taken off of slippery tile, homeowners can spend more time relaxing in the shade while the kids play.

Fire features are another great place to enjoy a Carvestone patio. With a strength rating of 5800 PSI, this beautiful overlay is considerably stronger than concrete. It is also easily repaired if it is accidentally chipped or cracked. Professional technicians take the time to grind out the affected area, repair the mar so that it will live up to the 7 year warranty standards, and then recolor so that it is virtually invisible against the existing area. Keeping enough wood on hand for long, relaxing evenings under the stars is a lot easier when a load can be driven right up to the storage area.

The hand carved and carefully crafted Carvestone overlay treatment can do wonders for a drab back yard. Applying it over existing concrete or brick is often a good solution for remodeling projects. New hardscapes also lay well over pea gravel. The large range of color combinations and design options allow for a wide variety of unique designs that compliment existing structures and landscaping. Contact us to find out how Allied Outdoor Solutions can help you turn your yard into the perfect outdoor living space.
