GIVE DAD AN OUTDOOR TREAT…MADE OF CONCRETE
Is he a chef? An entertainer? A tinkerer or a gardener? A sportsman? Or just a guy who likes to have a special place to relax. Well if a house is a man’s castle, then the back yard is his special preserve. And what lord-of-the-manor doesn’t deserve a place built just for him?
Concrete work may not sound like something you’d give for Father’s Day at first, but when you think of all the ways it can make Dad’s leisure time richer and more fun, it starts making a lot of sense.
Is the patio too small? A concrete patio extension is a quick and inexpensive way add space to entertain and relax. It doesn’t have to be grey and dull, either. Decorative colors and designs can make concrete look like natural stone at a fraction of the cost. Surround it with a low concrete block wall veneered with stone or brick and you’ll have plenty of extra seating. Add a fireplace or fire pit to add months to its enjoyment. An outdoor bar or kitchen will delight chefs and mixologists alike.
And don’t overlook the pool area. An expanded or refinished pool deck can take the environment from YMCA-basic to a luxury resort.
If Dad likes getting his hands on things, a workshop extension or standalone shed may end up being his favorite place. Even an existing work area can be made more inviting and even safer with resurfacing, coloring, and stain- and slip-resistant overlays.
Dads with green thumbs will appreciate the convenience and design of raised planters and garden paths. From terraced beds to water features and gazebos, concrete construction adds longevity with minimal maintenance to any garden or landscaping project.
Sportsmen will enjoy a concrete game space for shuffleboard or shooting hoops. One guy even turned his screened-in porch into a hockey rink!
Concrete projects can be inexpensive while looking great. And they can be done in anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Time a problem? Then get the project designed and present the plans and schedule as the gift.
Giving Dad a space he can enjoy right outside the back door is a great idea. Use your skills and imagination to make it happen.
And always remember that using the right tools ensures results you’ll be proud to show off. Whatever your concrete finishing, cutting and coring requirements may be, equipment and tools from Ace Cutting Equipment are your choice for top-quality results.
