Outdoor living has come a long way. Gone are the days of an 8-foot by 8-foot pad of cement out the back door or a little bit of decking to store the grill. To be clear, outdoor living is just that – traditional living spaces brought to the outdoors. The same amenities you find in a kitchen or living room are now integrated into your deck or patio and enjoyed outdoors.

Tile flooring is highly durable, water resistant, and comes in a wide variety of styles and colors. This makes tile an incredibly popular choice for most Colorado homeowners. In fact, throughout the Southwest, tile flooring laid through the whole house is extremely common. Here in Colorado Springs, we straddle the fence. Alpine Contracting has tiled entire homes, or we’ve reserved this durable flooring material for duty use – only tiling high traffic and wet areas. No matter how your home is fitted, maintaining your tile is an important, but pretty easy task.
Composite deck railing, commonly known as Trex, TimberTech, Azek, Deckorators, or Durables, is the perfect and obvious compliment to a composite deck. Composite decks have taken the outdoor living industry by storm due to their longevity and low maintenance. As the technology has developed and more competitors have entered the market, composite decking materials have also come down in price. This makes composite decks increasingly attractive for most Colorado Springs homeowners.
