It’s All In The Materials

It's all in the materials blog

The custom home building process is full of excitement! As a client, you get the opportunity to make hands-on decisions about which materials are the best for your family and match your design vision. In this blog, we’ll touch on which components went into making this Perk Pretty outdoor area the perfect entertainment space.

This recently completed Perkinson custom home has it all! A few highlights include: the pool, pool deck, outdoor kitchen, outdoor bar, screened-in porch, and 2nd-floor covered balcony complete with a relaxing porch swing. The natural stone exterior of the home provides the perfect backdrop for this exceptional outdoor space. At Perkinson Homes, we recommend using only the highest quality materials and the most experienced craftsmen to build your forever home. The materials featured have shown time and time again to be both beautiful and the most durable.

Pool Deck Material

Travertine, a type of limestone formed by mineral deposits from natural springs, was selected here to create the expansive pool deck for a number of reasons. It is a popular choice for hardscaping not only because it is an attractive style choice, but travertine is an excellent choice because of its non-slip properties. It also doesn’t get super hot in the sun like other materials such as stamped concrete, making it perfect for your pool area. We can picture ourselves lounging under the pergola already!

Exterior Stone Material

Bluestone adds a dreamy natural pop of color! Every piece of Bluestone is unique, just like each custom home we build. Unlike some high-end materials that tend to lose their luster over time, Bluestone is durable and won’t fade or wear. This stone maintains the original beauty that you fell in love with. The contrast between the clean, neat siding and the rugged, multi-colored stone is something out of a design magazine!

Outdoor Kitchen, Bar, & Dining Area

What better way to spend time outside by your pool than with a beautifully designed dining, kitchen, and bar area!? The Bluestone continues through to the fully equipped kitchen. Yes, you read that right—fully equipped outdoor kitchen. At Perkinson, we design your outdoor kitchen based on your needs. From a sink, appliances, grill, trash, countertops, and seating. All the while offering a timeless look that’s both versatile and durable.

Second-Floor Deck Material

Are you looking for more of a traditional porch look but don’t want to deal with the upkeep of conventional deck materials? With this second-floor porch, we used Trex Decking. Trex decks last longer than wood planks. They are fade and stain resistant, eliminating the need for regular painting. They’re also mold and mildew resistant, and even termite resistant! This decking is our top pick for all outdoor areas that don’t use stone.
