deck or raised patio

njsnjs
14 years ago

hello,

we are going to build either a raised patio or a deck behind our house.

the structure will be about 400 square feet.

our 1st floor is about 4 feet above grade - so we will either have to build:

1. a raised deck with protective rails and steps down to the ground. will probably use trex bc wood requires too much maintenance.

or

2. a raised patio - can be multi level.

i am inclined to want a raised patio (made with pavers) bc i hate hate hate the maintenance of wood. i think that stone / pavers are more attractive than trex.

will a raised stone/paver patio cost a fortune? what kind of difference in price are we looking at for a trex deck vs a paver raised patio?

any ideas/ insights are appreciated.

thanks

nancy
