A wooden patio is the ideal way to bring space and functionality to your outdoor living area. As versatile as they are attractive, wooden patios make a great addition to outdoor entertaining spaces, carports or pool areas. They can also be built as a standalone structure. They’re typically finished with a wooden or composite deck for a warmer look that blends in well with the natural environment, although tiles, bricks or pavers can also be used for flooring.
Building a wooden patio with Deck and Erect can transform a bland outdoor space into a stunning alfresco area. You’ll be proud to entertain friends and family, while also adding value to your home. We’ll work closely with you to assess your unique needs and come up with a plan to suit your desired shape, colour, materials and budget.
Benefits of a wooden patio
Wooden patios are popular thanks to their functionality, energy efficiency and timeless aesthetic. Wooden patios are designed to complement the hot, dry weather we experience here in Western Australia. Wood is known for its insulation properties, assisting with temperature control and helping to keep your patio cooler than other building materials. When built as an extension to your home, a wooden patio can reduce heat levels and help lower air-conditioning costs.
Visually, there is no more beautiful looking patio than a wooden structure. Wood complements the surrounding natural environment and because it ages well, it will still look great for years to come. Wooden patios are also eco-friendly as they’re constructed from reusable materials. If you ever decide to deconstruct your wooden patio for further building extensions, the wooden material can be repurposed for other building projects or furniture construction.
