Patios are no longer just a cement pad that connects your house to your backyard. It is a great place to entertain with family and friends. Your patio can be as simple as a landing with a spot for a grill or an elaborate extension of the taste and personality of your home. Allow Alpine Contracting to show you a variety of options from fully covered outdoor living spaces with recessed lighting, a complete food prep area and bar, and an eye-catching built-in firepit. If you’re after a custom cascading water wall babbling next to a fire-feature, just let your imagination run wild. We will help you design the perfect outdoor space, and make dreams become a reality.
One great reason for updating your outdoor living area is the opportunity to create a space that everyone will enjoy and want to spend time together. Imagine enjoying the crisp fall air next to a crackling firepit. You casually keep track of the afternoon football game playing from the mounted TV hanging from the covered patio. Loved ones are preparing Sunday dinner, putting the outdoor kitchen and wood-pellet grill through their paces. Small or large, the possibilities are endless.
Your kitchen is the most utilized room in the house. It is also the area most widely used for entertaining. Take advantage of the beautiful Colorado climate and bring the fun to the patio. Design a fully functional kitchen equipped with a built-in grill capped with stone accent. Tired of wrestling and filling propane tanks? It's no trouble to install a natural gas line for a grill, fireplace, or firepit. While we're at it, we'll include a water line for a complete bar with a stone countertop for character. Finish the look with a rustic tongue and grooved ceiling with recessed lighting and ceiling fans. Allow Alpine Contracting to set the scene for a lifetime of memories with friends and family.

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.
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. For more information on the pros and cons of different decking materials, including natural hardwood species and aluminum, you can read our article here.
