Individuals in Charlotte, North Carolina, Can Tie Their Hardscaping into Their Stone Deck with Silca System

Summer makes everything lovable, with clear blue skies, balmy sun rays, and the smell of a warm breeze tantalizing one’s senses. From Dallas, Texas, to Minneapolis, Minnesota, an aesthetic outdoor atmosphere contributes to an individual’s love of sitting outdoors, making the moment in their day that they relax one of the times to which they look forward. A homeowner may be sitting on their slate deck in San Francisco, California, very pleased that they chose to transform their wooden deck to a stone deck with the help of Silca System. As they enjoy their serene space, they scan their yard and wonder if it is possible to blend their beautiful new deck with the stairs descending to the cement patio. That is the moment that the idea is conceived on discovering the possibilities of using the recyclable (recycled) plastic grates they used when applying pavers to their deck. As they begin to research, they discover that Silca System can be used to tie hardscapes into decks, and it sparks ideas regarding the additions of a stone porch, roof deck, travertine stairway, slate walkway, and even a stone balcony off their bedroom. An impressive array of possibilities exist in Charlotte, North Carolina, and beyond when wanting to create a stunning and tranquil domain.

Individuals who have taken advantage of the possibilities of transforming a wooden deck to a stone deck are quickly aware of how easily it can be done and how tying their hardscape into their deck is also possible. Hardscaping refers to hard materials incorporated into landscaping — such as driveways, walkways, retaining walls, stairways, and any other landscaping made of hard-wearing materials, like stone, wood, or concrete. Silca System specializes in helping to customize anyone’s hardscape with their recycled plastic polymer hexagon-shaped grates that create an air gap, preventing the deck frame from molding or rotting. There are many applications using Silca System. Someone in Dallas may have a (sloped) yard where a ground-level deck is impossible, and can put pavers on their deck if they want to avoid a wooden deck. Someone in Minneapolis may want to upgrade the view walking out of their front door to a stone porch, and it is possible with this unique plastic grating system. Someone in San Francisco may be searching for a way to create additional space, so they may get the idea to transform some unused space into a relaxing space with an innovative roof deck. They may want to also take that path running from the garage side door to the driveway and create a slate walkway to upgrade their home’s value. Anyone who is tired of splintering wood steps can convert them to a travertine stairway; additionally, that balcony off of the master bedroom upstairs could use a facelift by making it a stone balcony. Silca System can enable the transformation of many hardscapes to beautify them.

When looking to tie a hardscape into an existing deck or blend the deck with a patio, Silca System is perfect for helping to create an upscale, high-quality outdoor path and walkway to any home in Charlotte and beyond. It is now possible to extend the beauty of the new stone deck to the rest of the property with in-ground applications using the same engineered polymer Silca grates used for transforming wooden decks to stone decks. They can easily be installed without professional help by fastening them to the floor joists with screws coated for pressure-treated lumber. They can be cut easily with a circular saw, table saw, or sawzall (brandname- use “reciprocating saw”); additionally, when applying stone to steps, Everseal Surebond 190 (I think this is a trademark- any issue>?) adhesive is recommended to adhere them. Pavers are naturally designed to fit together without moving. The rough edges create tension when placed side by side, locking the pavers together. It is recommended to use polymeric sand to fill joints and adhere stones. For finishing the outside edges with the pavers, Surebond 190 can be used or pressure-treated lumber, cedar, or redwood can be used as edging. The Silca System website contains many instructional videos and information to help!

There is almost no better satisfaction than a homeowner steering their car into the driveway and seeing the beautiful atmosphere that their labors have created from San Francisco, California, to Charlotte, North Carolina. Whether an individual is looking to upgrade to a stone porch or balcony, travertine stairway, or slate walkway, Silca Systems can enable these innovative alterations with their recyclable grates. Regardless if someone from Dallas, Texas, wants a roof deck, or a homeowner in Minneapolis, Minnesota, has been looking to install pavers on their deck or tie that hardscape into the deck, these American-made non-proprietary products make it possible. Anyone who made the decision to never have to perform annual deck maintenance again by transforming their wooden deck to a stone deck has expanded their remodeling options immensely with Silca System. They make it possible to even blend that beautiful deck with the patio to which it is attached, making every décor fit together. Silca System can help anyone who steps outside of their home feel like they are stepping into an upscale and peaceful vacation oasis.
