What is the perfect design for your home? Since every home is different, each patio is customized for our clients needs and desires, as well as their specific taste. Several elements are considered when designing a Crystal River patio system. We’ve coined this our “Perfect Patio Approach”.

Investment And Peace Of Mind
Patios and outdoor spaces offer one of the best investments a person can make… increased quality of living. Of course, a nice front or backyard will add value to your home when the time comes to sell, but this patio is for you. A beautiful Crystal River patio will allow you get the full use out of your home and yard with an enjoyable place to spend time with your family. It’s the feeling you get on a warm summer afternoon. It’s clear and sunny. Birds are singing. The aroma of hickory barbecue cuts through the fresh, clean air and makes your mouth water a little bit. The kids are laughing and playing games on the lawn. Most importantly, the friends and family are all there and everyone is smiling and having a great time. That’s what a Crystal River patio is all about.
We seek out the highest quality products because your outdoor project must be able to withstand the elements. In our harsh, mid Atlantic climate we see every kind of weather and temperature so we only install products that can handle the abuse.
Our installation processes are designed to be the most long lasting. We spend a little more time installing on the front end, which saves us from coming back later to fix problems. We install every patio the same way we would install at patio at one of our own homes.
