The All-Rounder

Concrete Slab Patio

Choosing the right material for your patio can be challenging, but a concrete slab patio offers many advantages that make it a popular choice. It’s the most cost-effective hard-surface patio material available and promises a high return on investment, thanks to:

  • A smooth, flat surface that comfortably accommodates your patio furniture and grill
  • Resilience to constant use and temperature changes
  • Easy maintenance
  • Superior resistance to fading
  • Imperviousness to weeds and ant colonies
  • Stability, even during temperature fluctuations

The Modern Aesthetic

Sealed Concrete Color Patios

Sealed concrete color patios blend the durability of concrete with the versatility of various color options, offering an attractive, modern twist to traditional patio spaces. These patios stand up well to Florida’s humid climate, resisting moisture and maintaining their vibrant hues for years.

Routine cleaning is a breeze, typically requiring just a simple sweep or hose-down. With their sleek finish and customizable color palette, sealed concrete color patios can effortlessly enhance your outdoor living area, reflecting your personal style while offering a high-performance, low-maintenance solution.

A Blend of Charm and Practicality

Paver Patios

Paver patios effortlessly combine timeless appeal and robust durability, making them a favorite among homeowners. With an array of design possibilities, these patios provide the flexibility to create a truly bespoke outdoor space.

The strength of paver patios ensures they can withstand heavy traffic and weather extremes. Their individual structure reduces the risk of cracking, and if a paver does get damaged, it’s easy to replace without disturbing the rest. This, combined with their low-maintenance nature, makes paver patios a cost-effective, long-lasting choice.

Investing in a paver patio not only boosts your home’s aesthetics but also its market value. At Graco Construction, we’ll help bring your vision to life, creating an outdoor retreat you’ll enjoy for years.

Elegance Meets Functionality

Travertine Patios

Travertine patios are a mark of distinction, combining resilience with refined aesthetics. A touch of elegance underfoot, they add a luxurious feel to your outdoor space, while their durability ensures they stand the test of time.

Unique for their cool surface, travertine patios are ideal for pool areas, reducing the risk of overheating under the Florida sun. They also provide excellent slip resistance, making them a safe option for outdoor kitchens and high-traffic areas.

With Graco Construction, you can elevate your outdoor living with a travertine patio that’s not just beautiful but also practical and enduring.

Building a Solid Foundation

The Invisible Strength of Patio Footers

Every new patio that we build with an enclosure must include footers, a critical yet unseen component. These footers, also known as concrete foundations, provide vital structural support and stability. While they may not add to the visible aesthetics of your patio, they’re indispensable for its durability and longevity. 

Installed beneath the patio, footers ensure your outdoor living space is well-grounded and capable of withstanding Florida’s variable weather conditions. Although they might not be the most glamorous part of your patio build, they are indeed an essential part of its anatomy.
