But, why choose a hardscape patio over a traditional deck? There are several key benefits, two of which stand out from the rest.

An Installation Process That Maximizes Safety, Efficiency, and Quality
Installation can be complex, but the professionals at DiStefano make it simple by obtaining all necessary permits prior to installation and calling 811 to ensure the safety of your dig.
We excavate 9-11” deep (12-14” for driveways) and 6” wider (1” wider for driveways) than the finished edge of your patio and use our equipment to compact the soil. Then, we install premium geo-textile fabric for drainage and to protect your investment. After, we use 2A state certified stone aggregate and compact it to 95%- 98% proctor density and test with a dynamic cone penetrometer to ensure proper density of the materials.
To finish, we screen 1” of concrete sand to minimize shifting and movement, which is followed by the actual installation of the pavers and edge restraints, followed by compacting the pavers. Finishing includes sweeping in polymeric sand and grading, seeding, and strawing any areas of your land disturbed by the installation process.

Rotting boards, staining, and splintering can make traditional wood decks a hassle. However, when you choose DiStefano, you can have access to hardscaping services that deliver beautiful solutions with a 3-year applied use warranty and in a variety of finishes.
