Residential Patio Installation Services From Lone Wolf Renovations

Your Guide To The Ultimate All-Purpose Outdoor Space

The patio might not be the first thing guests notice about your home…

But when installed and maintained correctly, a patio (which comes from the Spanish word for ‘courtyard’) can leave a huge impression on your visitors.

They’re the ideal space for outdoor dining, entertainment, and relaxation.

Plus, a well-designed patio can add as much as 10% to your home’s value!

Whether you already have a patio that’s long overdue for a refurb/repair, or whether you’re exploring the idea of installing a patio in your backyard…

Lone Wolf Renovations is here to help you decide if a new patio is a right move for you and your home.

What Are The Different Types of Patios?

Many people assume that patios only come in one or two different varieties – but the truth is that there are many more aesthetic options for you to choose from.

Browse our list of materials to learn more about the different patios we can install, clean, and repair at Lone Wolf Renovations.


Patio Stone with CoverBy far the most popular type of patio due to their affordability and tough durability.

While many concrete patios are smooth, you also have the option to create a pattern within the concrete and even add color to make a more distinctive look.

Concrete patios are designed to last a lifetime – and even if the extreme Louisiana weather causes damage to your patio, repairs are highly affordable too.

Clay Bricks

Clay bricks can set your patio apart from your neighbors’ because it is super easy to make a wide variety of geometric shapes and patterns with them.

A well-cared-for clay brick patio can last for centuries – just look at the clay brick paths that have survived since ancient times in Europe!

Clay bricks are more expensive than concrete but can still be relatively cheap overall.

Flagstone Patio

Flagstone is a natural, gorgeous-looking stone that is incredibly versatile. However, it’s especially well-suited for patio projects in New Orleans!

These thick slabs of stone can be arranged in highly irregular patterns to create a truly unique look for your patio.

It’s worth keeping in mind that flagstones are VERY heavy, and we highly recommend hiring professionals to ensure your patio looks great, AND you avoid injury!

Patio Pavers

Unlike Flagstones, where the whole point is to create an irregular pattern, patio pavers are designed to fit together perfectly but still create a ‘non-uniform’ feel.

The best thing about paver stones is that they come in a huge range of shapes and styles, and can even replicate the look of other materials, such as wood or brick.

Plus, although pavers are long-lasting, they’re also easy to remove and re-install if you want to give your patio a fresh new look.


Many New Orleans homeowners prefer their patio to seem like an extension of their house, not a separate entity.

In those cases, tiles are a perfect choice! They provide a smooth, eye-catching appearance, are easy to install, and even easier to clean and maintain.

Tiles are usually highly affordable and come in a wide range of designs, colors, and materials so you can get the exact look you’re searching for.

Patio Repair & Replacement

If your patio is damaged, you may be in the process of weighing up your options with local residential patio repair services.

Certain contractors may try to convince you that replacement is needed when a repair job would fix the damage.

Here’s our bulletproof way of knowing when to repair and when to replace.

Patios on BackyardYou should REPAIR your patio if:

  • You notice cracks

Minor cracks are unavoidable and, in most cases, are nothing to worry about. However, once cracks form – they will only get worse over time. 

It’s better to act sooner rather than later to fill the gaps or replace individual tiles/stones.

  • Water isn’t draining from your patio

Water needs to be cleared away from your patio to avoid long-lasting damage.

However, it’s relatively simple for residential patio contractors to add or repair a drainage solution rather than replace the entire patio.

  • Surface deterioration

If pieces of your patio are chipping or falling away, it’s a common reaction to think your entire patio is on the way out.

However, it may simply be a case of resurfacing your patio or adding a protective layer after replacing a few tiles, or filling the gaps to counteract the deterioration. 

You should REPLACE your patio if:

  • The cost of maintaining your patio gets too much

If you find you’re spending more time and money on your patio than any other part of your house – it’s probably time for a replacement.

However, before you rip up your old patio, speak with professional patio installation contractors to establish the best course of action.

  • You want a fresh new look for your home

If you want a complete overhaul of your patio, then, of course, the best option is a replacement job!

Make sure you explore all available options by speaking with residential patio contractors in your area.

Patio Cleaning

If your patio sees a lot of daily use, you may find that before too long, it’s starting to lose its ‘shine.’

The Louisiana climate can also assist in dirtying your patio!

But you don’t have to spend your days on your hands and knees scrubbing to get rid of, grime, mold, and mud…

Lone Wolf Renovations offers a pressure washing service that saves you time and money!

When a pressure wash can be completed in one afternoon…

Why would you waste multiple days and gallons of water trying to do it the traditional way?

Getting expert help from residential patio cleaning contractors is the best way to increase your patio’s lifespan and keep it looking great!

Patio Installation

Covered patio area with outside chairs in the backyard gardenWe’re often asked, ‘Can I install my own patio?’

Patio installation may seem like a relatively simple job that only requires a few tools and materials from your local hardware store…

…but we know from experience that the final look won’t compare with a professional job from residential patio installation experts – like us!

By installing your own patio, you don’t just risk having a few imperfections…

You could fall foul of Louisiana building codes, inadvertently reduce the value of your home or even cause yourself serious injury.

Make sure your patio is done exactly how you want it the first time by leaving it to the pros.

How Much Does Patio Installation Cost?

Every patio is different, so it’s impossible to say how much patio installation for your home will cost without diving deeper into your project. 

How big is the space? What materials are needed? Do the grounds require additional preparation work?

These are all factors we consider for every project we take on.

However, there’s no reason why residential patio installation costs should break the bank! Even a full patio replacement can still be highly affordable.
