Step Out onto a Classic and Beautiful Patio

Natural Materials – A Great Choice for Rochester, NY, Patios

There’s something classic about having a natural stone patio and outdoor living area. Natural stone such as bluestone (shown above), travertine, limestone, and flagstone can give your backyard patio an upscale, sophisticated look and feel. There are many colors and texture to choose from and styles can range from classic patterns (using cut squares, rectangles, or geometric shapes) or more natural and organic (using irregular-shaped stones). Natural stone patios will never fade over time and are extremely durable. Of course, our masons are experts in mimicking natural materials with the use of a stamped concrete which is more cost effective if you have a smaller budget.
