Outdoor-Custom-Wood-Fired-Pizza-Ovens-On-Long-IslandWhat Is A Wood Fired Brick Pizza Oven?

A wood-fired brick oven is a specially designed oven that heats up evenly, retains high temperatures, and cooks the perfect pizzas, meats, and more. It is an oven that uses burning wood on the inside to heat up the surfaces. Once the oven has reached the right temperature, you can cook pizzas in just a few minutes or less; the oven reaches temperatures of 850+ degrees Fahrenheit.

How Do Wood Fired Brick Pizza Ovens Work?

A brick wood fired pizza oven can get to temperatures upwards of 850+ degrees without causing damage or compromising the structural integrity of the oven. The dome shape bounces the heat in every direction allowing the oven to be at the same temperature all over. This allows for pizzas and foods to cook evenly no matter where it sits in the oven.

What Kind Of Wood Is Used For Wood Fired Brick Pizza Oven?

Hardwoods are the best kinds of wood to use in a wood fired oven. Brick pizza ovens allow you to take advantage of delightful aromas and flavors you can’t get in a regular oven. You can use anything from applewood to oak, maple, and even hickory wood in a wood fired brick pizza oven.

Are All Brick Ovens Wood Fired?

Some brick ovens can be converted to gas or propane oven. Using this heat source can be convenient for people who want the perfect cooking properties of a brick oven without dealing with the mess of wood and ashes to clean up.

Gappsi installed G046 limestone treads for the steps and stone pavers for the patio. The home is sitting in a beautiful setting on the water with a breathtaking view. In our backyard update, we added the same G046 limestone pavers, an island, and a table.

Custom Built Wood Fired Pizza Ovens

A custom built pizza oven with a base was installed. Gappsi utilized eldorado prefab concrete boxes, veneered with Quartzite split-face natural stones. For the outdoor kitchen, we installed an AOG 24-inch grill and made a base for the smoker.  Gappsi designed the outdoor custom wood fired pizza ovens which extended the homeowner’s outdoor kitchen entertaining area. The countertop was created with limestone G046 coping and pavers.

The exterior of the oven is finished with stucco and the homeowner could not be happier!  The final step in completing the pizza oven is sealing it to make it water-repellant.

Gunite-Pool-Renovation-And-CopingMarble Pavers Pool Copings In Brookville NY

This is a gunite renovation completed on Long Island in Brookville NY. Gappsi installed new glass tiles in the waterline to freshen up the look of the pool.

Waterfalls, water walls, fountains, jets, bubblers, and spillovers give your pool a focal point, and they create an inspirational setting. A great pool design is often realized by the water within; its appearance, reflections, and how it refracts light and color. By adding a vertical element of moving water, the design can spring to life and almost become a work of art. There are many types of water features to choose from.  Simply put, today’s pool builders create customized features that move water in astonishing ways.

For our customer in Nassau County, we built a wall for the water feature to include sheer descends and on each end, we added spillover bowls.  Along the side of the pool we installed 6 Laminars; 3 on each side.

Sheer-descent waterfalls

Sheer-descent waterfalls, also called sheetfalls, are more suited for modern and geometric pools. The water flows through a thin spillway creating a sleek elegant look as it descends into the water. Sheetfalls are often installed along a raised wall on one side of the pool. The wall can be finished in glass tile for a stunning effect or stacked stone for a more natural look.

Laminar Fountains

Laminar fountains are a type of deck jet that produces a bubble-free arc of water.  This water feature is more common on modern pools and often lit by colorful LED lights.   This water feature look is both stunning and exciting. Designers should pay attention to windy areas because too much wind may ruin the effect on the laminar fountains. Laminar fountains are more expensive than standard deck jets.

Gunite-Pool-Renovation-And-Coping2Gappsi Stone Collection | Marble G043

In general construction terminology, coping refers to masonry material that is used to cap the top of a wall. Most walls have some type of coping, and the kind that adorns those on gunite pools features specific elements.

Coping is the material—usually natural stone or various forms of concrete—mounted over the top of the pool shell’s “bond beam” (the upper portion of the wall). This is where the pool structure meets the surrounding deck

For the coping in the patio, we used marble G043 selected from the Gappsi Stone Collection. The benches and steps in the pool were outlined with glass tiles that were used in the pool for the waterline. For the wall water feature, we used very unique marble slabs to elevate the look and make it a dramatic focal point of the pool and backyard. The patterns in the stones add to the natural beauty of the backyard through the natural patterns in the stones.

Pickleball Courts With Painted Asphalt

Pickleball-Courts-With-Painted-Asphalt2Pickleball Courts With Painted Asphalt or Concrete both provide an acceptable base for the courts. Make sure to review surfacing requirements before having the base installed, as there are recommended specifications for slope, drainage, surface finish, and overall construction.

A better court equals better and safer play. These guidelines are based on collected feedback from fellow members of the pickleball community, and while your situation may differ, we offer these as a starting point for those looking to get the most out of their court and their game.

We can provide you with free estimates for Pickleball court construction & resurfacing throughout Long Island New York. Pickleball has been around for quite a few years but has recently become one of the fastest-growing sports in the country. Backyard pickleball courts are a great investment for families and friends to enjoy and have a much smaller footprint than tennis courts. Contact us today and we can perform a site visit to see if a backyard pickleball court can be built within your available space.

Do You Have A Pickleball Court And Need Resurfacing?

The process of surfacing a pickleball court varies, and may include the application of a resurfacing material and/or a cushioned material, in addition to paint for color and texture and line-striping the court boundaries. Some jobs, such as repurposing tennis courts for pickleball, may only require line-striping.

Pickleball court resurfacing should be done every 4 to 8 years, depending on a variety of factors. Overall traffic, or usage, of the sports game courts, is the main factor. However, proper construction, slope, and drainage of the pickleball courts are also very important to the longevity of the slab and pickleball court surfaces. Gappsi is experienced in resurfacing larger Pickleball court facilities with multiple courts. These are ideal for tournaments, leagues, or park systems with a large demand for pickleball. Converting tennis or basketball courts to pickleball courts is also an option if there is more demand for pickleball courts. However, we recommend adding blended lines in another color to existing courts and keeping the existing sports lines. This way you make the most of your real estate and can play all sports in the same area.

Pickleball-Courts-With-Painted-Asphalt-&-Basketball-CourtsSurface Preparation Is Key To Successful Resurfacing

The pavement surface must be cleaned entirely of dust, dirt, and debris. Repair of pavement surface defects, depressions, and cracks should be completed prior to application. All repairs must be flush and smooth to adjoining surfaces for best results. New asphalt must cure 30 days and new concrete must cure 28 days prior to application. It is recommended that any uncoated/bare surface receive one or more coats of TCS Court Resurfacer as required by surface roughness and porosity to provide a smooth, dense underlayment for the application of color coatings. Concrete surfaces should have a light broom finish or a similar roughened texture.

Interested In Cushioned Pickleball Court Surfaces?

We can also install cushioned pickleball court surfaces. You can have a premium, softer playing surface for reducing shock on the joints and body. The system consists of multiple coats of rubber-filled acrylic coatings to produce cushioned padding beneath the colored surfaces.

The acrylic resurfacer is important for courts that intend to add a cushion layer. Without the resurfacing acrylic, the rubber wants to pile up instead of grabbing onto the texture below, and the rubber in the cushion product will fill the voids so the surface won’t feel as cushioned.

Cushioned pickleball courts are created by applying multiple layers of acrylic with small rubber granules using a soft rubber squeegee. To ensure even application, we recommend pouring out the cushion product in relatively small amounts, to prevent piles of rubber at the end of the squeegee pull. After spreading the cushion acrylic, Gappsi recommends being gentle while scraping any high spots.

You Do Not Have A PickleBall Court – Plan Your Sports Game Courts

If you are constructing a pickleball court from start to finish, one of the first considerations will be the size and layout of the court.
Pickleball courts measure 44 feet long and 20 feet wide, including the court’s boundary lines. The USAPA Rule Book recommends a minimum total playing surface of 30 by 60 feet, though 34 by 64 feet is preferred. Anytime multiple courts will be in close proximity, fencing between the courts is important to protect players on other courts.

Just as with other sports courts, it is ideal to orient the court north-south to limit the sun obstructing players’ vision and the impact of shadows on the court surface.

Coloring The PickleBall Sports Game Courts

The color coating USAPA recommends 100 percent acrylic paint for outdoor courts.  The color is typically applied with a minimum of two coats. Pickleball courts are smaller and are often used for doubles so there’s more wear because the players are always scuffing the same little boxes. It may be worth adding an extra coat to extend the life of the surface.

Although tennis courts tend to be painted blue or green, the USAPA says pickleball courts can be painted any color as long as it contrasts with the lines of the court.

You want to choose a color that contrasts with the color of the pickleballs.  Pickleballs are most often yellow, orange, or lime green. Generally, colors opposite from each other improve contrast. For example, if the balls are yellow, paint the court blue.

Multiple Pickleball Courts North Hills Country Club Nassau County NY

Pickleball-Courts-With-Painted-AsphaltGappsi installed three pickleball sports game courts including a basketball court at North Hills Country Club located in Nassau County NY. This is an addition to their sports complex of tennis courts and golf courts. We utilized an asphalt base, primed, and painted the courts with asphalt paint. The courts were painted blue and color striped with white lines as well as the surrounding area in green. Our team installed 24 x 24 squared Nicolock Pavers for the patio. For the basketball court, we used asphalt primed and painted in black. The keys were colored blue and striped with white. For all surrounding areas, we installed synthetic turf, which will make this enclosed area maintenance-free. The clients are very happy; this is a beautiful installation by Gappsi.

Marble Coping For Vinyl Pools & Spas

Marble-Coping-For Vinyl-Pools-&-Spas2Vinyl Liner Pool Installation

Marble Coping For Vinyl Pools & Spas is a popular type of pool and spa surface. Vinyl Pools are custom-made to fit your specific pool area.  Because they are pre-fabricated and installed relatively quickly, vinyl liner pools are usually less expensive to build and renovate than in-ground gunite pools with cement finishes. A typical vinyl liner replacement may take only a few hours with an experienced crew (not including water fill time), as opposed to days or weeks for a renovation and re-plaster.

Vinyl Liner Strengths And Weaknesses

  • Strengths

Liners are widely available, more affordable to install and replace, and can be installed quickly. They have benefits especially in colder climates, due to the lack of winter issues like calcite crystals. Even if a vinyl liner is damaged and faded during the winter, its surface is still smooth and therefore not abrasive to swimmers’ feet. Another benefit is that patterns and colors do not drive the price of a liner. You can choose from many patterns and colors without large differences in cost, unlike cementitious surfaces which can vary widely in price.

  • Weaknesses

Many would argue the biggest weakness of vinyl liner pools is their lack of customization. Concrete pools can be just about any shape and size, whereas liners are more limited in their shape and size. That all being said, technology continues to advance and we have been seeing more complex liner pools out there. Also, while you can get a plethora of patterns and colors, vinyl liners almost all are similar in feel and appearance…unlike a concrete pool which can have many textures and vibrant colors.

Marble-Coping-For Vinyl-Pools-&-Spas2Marble Pavers

A metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite. Marble can have beautiful pattern movement within the stone and comes in a wide variety of colors from white to salmon to gray, blue, green, and black.

Regardless of your chosen pool design, deciding which natural stone pavers to use for your pool surrounding will make a very powerful statement about your taste, status, and success. Some factors to consider include appearance, durability, non-slip finish, environmental factors like weather conditions, and finally, sealant.

Marble-Coping-For Vinyl-Pools-&-SpasRaised Spa

A Raised Spa that is elevated above the pool surface. A raised spa can add a dramatic focal point to a poolscape. A raised spa can double as a water feature if it is designed to permit spa water to cascade into the pool. Depending on the type of installation, the spa may or may not share the main pool’s circulating equipment. Raised perimeter-overflow spas overflow on all sides, creating a unique gravity-defying effect.

Outdoor Kitchen Cooking Island with Delta Appliances

Delta Heat products are engineered, designed, and manufactured by industry-leading premium grill and outdoor kitchen equipment experts. Delta Heat products are a true culmination of past experiences, refined and perfected to ensure exceptional design, construction, and performance.

  • How Much Does an Outdoor Kitchen Cost?

An outdoor kitchen will add value to any home, and increase the enjoyment for your family and guests.  The cost will depend on factors, such as appliances chosen, materials, and size. It is important to also consider if the project requires electrical, plumbing, gas, or ventilation.  Outdoor kitchens have risen in popularity partly due to their functionality. It is the perfect additional livable space in the home where you can cook, eat, entertain and relax.

Many times, homeowners hire a contractor to build their outdoor kitchen, because they offered the lowest price. But the lowest price isn’t always the best way to go. It is not necessary to break the bank, but it is important that whomever you choose to work on your home, knows what they are doing, and is willing to stand by their work.

Marble-Coping-For Vinyl-Pools-&-Spas3Gappsi designed and installed this gorgeous backyard setting in Medford Suffolk County NY.  The design of the backyard started with the installation of the 20 x 40 vinyl liner swimming pool with concrete walls. The pool was designed to incorporate a raised spa that spills into the pool. The 8 x 8 raised spa is veneered with Silver Travertine and Coping G038 24×24 marble pavers.

The entire patio was paved with G043 marble pavers selected from the Gappsi stone collection. The Gappsi Stone Collection offers beautiful color variations of beige, browns, and whites. In addition, a sundeck with two fountain bubblers was installed so they can be enjoyed while in the pool.    

Outdoor Living By Gappsi

Included in the project surrounding the vinyl-lined pool Gappsi installed a very large patio.  The outdoor living space featured an L-shaped cooking island using all Delta appliances including a gas burner grill, storage cabinets, a gas burner, sink, and a Summit Refrigerator.  The home also featured a raised Azek Deck with steel cable railings to allow NOT BLOCK the view of the backyard pool area when sitting on the deck. The Cento wood-burning firepit was designed to include a stainless steel insert. 

Our customers are so happy with the finished design of their new outdoor backyard oasis. This is a great example and design idea brought to you by the design team at Gappsi.

Artificial Putting Greens On Long Island

Artifical-Turf-Putting-Green-On-Long-Island3Make your friends green with envy by installing artificial putting greens in your backyard! There’s no better way to improve your game than by being able to practice from the comfort of your home. Artificial putting greens have a natural look and give your ball a roll and bounce similar to that of a natural grass golf course. Yet, unlike a professional golf course, artificial putting greens from Gappsi have no divots, never need overseeding, and require very minimal maintenance and water usage, allowing you to save a hefty amount of time and money.

Our durable, high-quality artificial putting green turf is perfect putt putt, mini-golf, backyard putting greens, golf mats, or driving ranges.

We sell thousands of square feet of our top-tier quality artificial golf green per year and our superior design and installation crews have the knowledge and ability to help make even your grandest golf vision a reality.

Benefits Of Artificial Putting Greens

When asking what the benefits are of installing synthetic grass in your home or office, a better question to ask might be, what isn’t a benefit of artificial grass?:

  • Pet-friendly – muddy paws, pests, and an unkempt yard are often among the top complaints from pet owners with a natural grass lawn. With artificial grass from Gappsi, you’ll no longer have to worry about Fido becoming infected with ticks or tracking dirt and mud into your clean home.
  • Excellent for water conservation – for homeowners seeking ways to lower their consumption, synthetic grass is an excellent option, as it requires no regular watering. That’s an investment you can feel good about!
  • Free of allergens and pesticides – allergies are a thing of the past with synthetic grass, which leaves no trace of allergens. Additionally, there’s no need to apply harmful chemicals and pesticides, so you can feel safe letting kids and pets play on the lawn.
  • Low-maintenance – gone are the days when you constantly have to re-sod and add fertilizer to your lawn. With artificial grass, all you need is a leaf blower and a garden hose to remove dust and debris.
  • A smart investment – if a high return on investment is a top concern, it doesn’t get much better than artificial grass. Gappsi synthetic grass products possess a 10-15 year life expectancy, with no need to re-seed or water daily, as with traditional grass.

Artifical-Turf-Putting-Green-On-Long-Island2Creating a Putting Green That Is Fun & Functional

Do you like to entertain?  If you’re the house that always hosts holiday gatherings, Superbowl parties, and casual get-togethers, it’s worth it to put in a feature that everyone will love!

Everyone likes to practice right?  Whether you’re a long-time golfer or just starting out in the game, having a place to practice putts is essential to improving your technique. Imagine just stepping out into your backyard ready to putt!

But how does it look?  The aesthetics of the turf are a rich, green fiber that is highly realistic in appearance.  Gappsi’s synthetic turf offers a crisp aesthetic for your outdoor space that lasts, and everyone can enjoy.

Gappsi Will Help You Evaluate The Many Details Of A New Artificial Putting Greens

Putting greens for backyards is ideal for improving your short game, whether you’re a seasoned golfer or just getting into the sport.

However, the putting green design you choose will be different based on your skill level, practice needs, and the logistics of your outdoor space.

The putting green design process begins with our professional design team asking you a few basic questions, such as:

  • What putting material should be used?
  • Nylon versus Polypropylene?
  • How large should the green be?
  • Where to put undulations and hole locations?
  • What type of shots do you want to practice?
  • Are you trying to improve your short game?
  • How much Fringe / Chipping area should I have?
  • Do you want a border around the green?
  • Do you want landscaping features like boulders
    sand traps, grass bunkers, etc.?

Once we receive your input and provide recommendations, we will start the design process which includes turf product integration and installation guidelines for our team.

Then the installers will get to work creating the putting green of your dreams!

Different Elements You Can Design Into Your Putting Green

With minimal upkeep (no watering, mowing, weeding, or re-seeding) your putting green will be in great shape year-round.  The versatility and durability of artificial grass mean that your green will stand up to consistent use for years to come.  But turf is far from the only element of your backyard golf green.  To add difficulty and visual interest, consider adding some of these features:

  • Breaks
  • Elevations
  • Moguls
  • Bunkers
  • Tee Boxes
  • Shape
  • Speed
  • Chipping Areas
  • Fringes

Artifical-Turf-Putting-Green-On-Long-IslandPutting Greens For Backyards and Front Yards Sands Point Long Island NY

Gappsi custom-built large putting greens for a front yard of a resident in Sands Point NY, located in Nassau County on Long Island. We built a putting green that included two sand bunkers. We used short grass for the center and a taller synthetic turf for the french of the putting green. In addition, Gappsi installed 4 putting holes and 4 flags. The design of the putting green is built in front of the home so as you drive up you can see it.  The natural grass is installed to grow right next to the synthetic turf and blends in seamlessly.

Nicolock Pavers For Patios And Pools

Nicolock Pavers For Patios And PoolsHomeowners on Long Island, New York are constantly looking for ways to boost both home value and curb appeal with Nicolock pavers for patios and pools.  Increasing curb appeal can boost home value. It’s a self-perpetuating circle of home value.

Nicolock Pavers Add Value & Curb Appeal to Suffolk & Nassau County Long Island Homes

Did you know that Nicolock pavers are manufactured in 1,000 different combinations of colors and textures? You can create a custom look to fit your style and your vision; by simply adding hardscaping elements to your backyard.  Some hardscape ideas to add are patios, walkways, and retaining walls to your backyard you add a touch of class to your living space.  Your outdoor space increases the home’s curb appeal too. Nicolock paving stones have great slip resistance with a “smooth as silk” appearance. They are ideal for patios, walkways, pool decks, and driveways. All Nicolock pavers use Nicolock’s patented Paver-Shield technology. The paver blocks have color throughout the entire block, giving them a richer more vibrant color that will not fade over time, and they provide superior protection against all outdoor elements.   Superior quality and protection make these paving blocks great for patios, driveways, poolside areas, and walkways.

Benefits vs Disadvantages of Pavers?

Nicolock is a 100% U.S.-owned and operated company specializing in the production of patio pavers and other hardscaping products. Nicolock manufactures a complete line of interlocking concrete paving stones, architectural paving slabs, precast concrete products, and segmental retaining wall systems.

Benefits of Paving Stones

    Green: Nicolock manufactures several variations of eco-friendly permeable paving products.
  • Warranty: All Nicolock products come with a limited lifetime warranty.

Nicolock-Pavers-For-Patios-And-Pools2Disadvantages of Paving Stones

  • Moss will grow in between pavers: Just like weeds, moss growth in between pavers is a common problem. Moss likes to grow in wet, shady areas. If moss gets out of hand it can be a big pain.  It is important to note that it is not only unsightly, but it can be very slippery when wet.
  • Weeds will grow in between pavers: In between each of the pavers is a layer of sand that acts as a grout line. Over time, sand washes out and requires to be refilled periodically to maintain proper spacing. Homeowners can either do this on their own or hire a contractor to do it for them.  It is important to note that if restoring the sand is neglected, chances increase that weeds will grow in between each paver.
  • Pavers will wobble: Pavers always need a strong base, and many contractors who do not specialize in installing pavers fail to provide the strong base pavers need. Some contractors lay a scarce amount of sand under the pavers which can cause the pavers to sink.

Cleaning-and-Sealing-Paving-Stones1Long Island NY Stone Patios Driveways Cleaning Sealing Experts!

We are often asked, “Do I need to seal my pavers?” The short answer is YES!!! Cleaning and Sealing is an important maintenance tools to keep paver patios, walkways, driveways, and pool decks looking as beautiful as the day they were installed.

However, “too much of a good thing” can come into play.  You should be wary of over-applying paver sealer by reapplying too often, which could create a haze. Below are a few of the most popular questions we have received.  To read the entire list of questions check out the Cleaning and Sealing page:

Is it necessary to Seal Pavers?

Gappsi recommends sealing concrete pavers and cleaning regularly. Although paving stones use the highest quality cement, cement is a corrosive material.  Cement wears under natural elements such as rain and snow. The sun, rain, and cold can easily wear the surface of pavers, and a good sealing job with the right sealing product, applied by a professional technician of sealing, will create a layer of protection over the paving stones making them water-repellent and weatherproof. This will protect the concrete surface from corrosion. A good sealer penetrates the paver surface and stays there for many years, even when the look of the sealer goes away the color and texture of the pavers will stay new.

Do you need to pressure wash pavers before sealing them?

Gappsi recommends pressure washing pavers before sealing the surface and the surface should be free of debris. It is very important the surface is cleaned first.  Once the sealant is on the pavers any stains or materials that get trapped under the sealer will not be able to be cleaned after it’s sealed.

 

Pressure washing pavers is just as important as sealing them. Using the wrong pressure washing tools could also hurt the pavers. A pressure washer with the wrong nozzle could mark or wear the pavers. The best-recommended tool is a high-volume, low-pressure, hot water-pressure washer. The hot water cleans the pavers and prepares the surface for the best result sealing job.

Natural Limestone Patio And Pool Long Island NY

Choosing The Right Stone For A Pool Deck

Natural-Limestone-Patio-And-Pool-Long-Island-NYWhen choosing the right stone such as a natural limestone patio and pool Long Island NY it’s important to embrace some practical and aesthetic considerations.  Whether it’s an elegant light-colored limestone perfect for a hot summer day, a natural fieldstone emulating the feel of a deep woods swimming hole, or reclaimed granite with its timeless weathered beauty, the following points will help in selecting the best stone for a pool deck or patio area.

The Four S’s to Consider

  • Style – The overall appearance of a pool deck and patio may vary depending on style. It could be sophisticated versus a more rustic look and feel.  The sophisticated style generally has clean lines while a rustic style offers an earthy feel and look with more natural, rougher lines.
  • Surface –  The texture of the stone has a big impact on the look as well as the feel of your patio surface.
    • A split face surface, like a reclaimed plank paver, gives a rustic look to the area.
    • A natural cleft surface comes from stones that are split by man along a natural seam in the stone.  This gives the surface an organic feel with a flatter surface compared to a rough split surface.
  • Shapes and Patterns – Stone shapes, whether irregularly shaped or straight edge squares and rectangles, may completely change the design of a pool deck as different design patterns will also,
  • Scale – It is important to think about the size of the stones. Deciding on small, medium, or large stones determine the look and feel of a pool deck area.

PRO TIP: If the deck space is large, consider using larger-sized pieces to give it a grand feeling. Smaller pieces may be used for more intricate patterns and offer a more sophisticated look.

  • Color – Natural stone comes in a variety of colors in addition to color combinations. Deciding on the stone consider if the pool is in direct sunlight for large amounts of time, then a lighter-colored stone would be good to keep the temperature down. Choose a color or color theme that relates to your home, or office building, as well as other stones in the nearby area.

The Right Stone For The Right Condition

A complement to the surrounding landscape, natural stone pool coping is as practical as it is attractive. Natural stone is durable and resists freeze-thaw cycles.

  • Heat Underfoot – Comfortable underfoot is important when choosing a stone for a pool deck and patio. Which type of stone will help to keep the surface cooler? The answer is a stone with less heat absorption. In general, lighter-colored stones have less heat absorption.
  • Freeze-Thaw – If the pool will be located in a freeze-thaw weather zone, be sure to pick a stone with lower water absorption for the pool deck. Granites, basalts, and porphyry top the charts in this category and will hold up to all weather conditions. We have also hand-picked some freeze-thaw-resistant limestones and sandstones that will work well.
  • Slip Resistance – The last thing you want is a slippery stone for a pool deck and patio. Luckily, adjustments to surface texture and joints can make a huge difference when it comes to creating a slip-resistant deck.

In addition to considering the appearance of the texture, consider the effect it has on the perceived slipperiness of a stone. Man-made surfaces provide excellent grip and some split surfaces tend to be less slippery. In general, stone surfaces with indentations and irregularities provide a better grip.

Natural-Limestone-Patio-And-Pool-Long-Island-NY3WIDE JOINTS VS MANY JOINTS

Wide joints between pavers or joints that have grass or other vegetation growing between them make the overall pool deck surface less slippery.

When there are many joints, your feet are always touching multiple joints which helps you naturally grip the surface and it is, therefore, more slip-resistant.

Pool Deck Materials We LOVE at Gappsi

Limestone – The luxurious feel and look of limestone make it a great choice for a pool deck.

Sandstone – A sedimentary rock composed of sand-size grains of mineral, rock, or organic material. Many sandstone materials are great for pool decks as their split surfaces are naturally slip-resistant. Colors range from beige to brown to gray-blue.

Granite – A coarse-grained igneous rock, granite has a high content of quartz and feldspar giving it a speckled appearance. One of the most durable quarried stones from around the world, granite is nearly always massive, hard, and tough.

Bluestone – Bluestone is actually a sandstone with a deep blue color but also appears with other hues such as shades of gray and brown. Bluestone is known for its advantageous price point. Natural cleft bluestone is quite slip-resistant.

Travertine – A form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs. Travertine often has a fibrous or concentric appearance and exists in white, tan, cream-colored, and even rusty varieties.

Marble – Marble can have beautiful pattern movement within the stone and comes in a wide variety of colors from white to salmon to gray, blue, green, and black.

Brick Pavers Basketball Sports Game Courts

Brick Pavers Basketball Sports Game Courts

Brick-Pavers-Basketball-Sports-Game-Courts2Brick Pavers Basketball Sports Game Courts are a great choice but not the only one when designing your space.  There are a number of factors that go into building a sports game courts: budget, local zoning laws, and your property design.

Common Sports Game Courts Materials

♦  Asphalt: The most affordable option for having a basketball sports game courts is an asphalt pad with painted lines. The material costs are the least expensive as well as the installation due to cutting out the expense of having the court painted.

Some people have concerns about the durability of unpainted asphalt. It’s been our experience that as long as you don’t have large trees with big tree roots near the court you should be fine and will avoid the potential for big cracks. As for wear and tear, a sports court will not experience the same traffic as your driveway so its longevity will be much longer than your standard driveway.

This is the best material for a driveway basketball court. It’s softer and more forgiving on the body than on other surfaces. For best results, install when the weather is warm and the ground is dry.

The court can be asphalt, and the edging can be brick pavers, beautifying the look of the court also.  

♦  Concrete: This surface can be slippery and not as soft, making it less desirable for competitive basketball use. In cold climates, the concrete can crack and heave, making it unsafe.  Concrete is a common driveway material, works for family-fun basketball, and lasts about 30 years.

Much like an asphalt pad, a concrete pad with painted lines is more affordable than one that’s painted due to cutting out the painting process.  The concrete looks nicer but the asphalt plays nicer.

♦  Hard-packed Gravel w/ Mateflex– Many towns, especially in the Northeast, have strict zoning laws which regulate the amount of non-permeable coverage your property can have. If your town will not allow you to have a non-permeable court, then a hard-packed gravel court with Sports Courts tiles may be your best and only option.

If you’re looking for aesthetics, sports game courts tiles look unbelievably beautiful.

Brick-Pavers-Basketball-Sports-Game-Courts3

Brick Pavers offer a smooth playing surface!

♦  Brick Pavers: Flat pavers can make for a smooth playing surface. They come in many colors and can be replaced if stained or broken. In addition, you can build basketball court lines, such as the free-throw line, right into the design by using different-colored pavers.  What we like about it the most is it compliments your property more than any other option. Not that the other options don’t. It’s just that a brick paver basketball sports courts really looks nice, especially if you already have a paver patio.

What you get with this is a brick paver patio with the basketball court lines cut out and replaced with different colored bricks. The aesthetics of this are awesome. The athletics of it aren’t bad either.

◊  Maintenance: Basketball play should not result in any additional maintenance for the driveway, and the hoop structure should require little maintenance. If you see rust, remove it right away and check the warranty that came with your system. A quality system should last a lifetime.

◊  Permit: A permit is not typically required, but you should always check the rules in your area, as well as your homeowner’s association if you belong to one. People may think they can’t have a hoop because of their homeowner’s association.  But in many cases, they are allowed, or you can file for an exception. You almost always get one.

◊  Extras: Go beyond the hoop and driveway by adding some helpful extras. These are the most popular:

  • Stenciling kit: The kit includes a pattern and paint to add a 3-point line, free-throw line, lane, baseline, and more.
  • Pole pad: This cushion around the pole eases any collisions while playing and can be customized with vinyl lettering.
  • Lights: LED lamps to illuminate your driveway and allow you to play basketball at night.
  • Ball Containment: A net or fence stops the ball from going into the bushes, down a hill, over a fence, or into the neighbor’s yard.

Brick-Pavers-Basketball-Sports-Game-CourtsBrick Pavers Basketball Sports Game Courts in Elwood NY

Gappsi installed a basketball sports game courts in Elwood located in Suffolk County NY. This sports court was paved with Nicolock Stone Ridge Smooth in 3 color combinations. We used Autumn Blend for the field, Granite City Holland Stones for the 3-point line, as well as for striping. For the key, we used a Travertine color.

The non-skid, flat surface is optimal for basketball and is the choice of many players.  Permeable pavers bring the efforts of staying “green” all the way out to the curb! Being environmentally conscious doesn’t always mean sacrificing beauty! This inspiring and colorful blend brings the quality and standards of Gappsi.

We installed an out-of-bounce netting behind the basketball hoop too. The basketball hoop is adjustable regulation size with a led light installed on the top. Definitely unique and has no need for paint. An extremely durable basketball sports game courts with very happy clients.  This is the latest Gappsi sports courts creation.

Swimming Pool Water Feature Ideas

What Swimming Pool Water Features Can I Add to My Pool?

Swimming-Pool-Water-Feature-Ideas3Swimming Pool Water Feature Ideas to inspire you with your backyard design.  When water is in motion it engages our senses, it is beautiful to look at and very relaxing to hear. A swimming pool with a custom water feature or waterfall is a water-on-water experience that serves as a focal point and draws you into its environment. Similar to other elements on your property, you want to choose a water feature that compliments the architectural style of your home as well as your pool. Your swimming pool water feature should also fit within your budget and personal taste. Gappsi offers a variety of pool water features to choose from including fountains, scuppers, sheer decent, rain curtains, laminar jets, bubblers, mist, deck jets, boulder waterfalls, infinity edges or negative edges, and dramatic fire-on water features.

With so many types of water features to choose from, the effects they can create are seemingly infinite when factoring in size, flow rate, acoustics, and lighting. Simply put, today’s pool builders create customized features that move water in astonishing ways.

Swimming Pool Water Feature Ideas

1. Fountains – Ornamental fountains make attractive additions to any swimming pool. In particular, these water features are visually intriguing when grouped together in a pair or trio.

In particular, bubbler fountains are a favorite on new projects. Growing demand for pool tanning ledges is driving the rise of the bubblers.  That’s because a lively bubbler is a perfect way to accent a tanning ledge or the pool’s first entry step. Their fluid motion provides a cue to alert pool users to the shallow structure below.  For the same reason, bubblers are a favorite to mark a beach entry on a pool. A bubbler fountain can also go in the center of a spa.

To make the most of bubblers or spray fountains, you want the ability to view them at night too. With this benefit in mind, ask us about adding color-changing LED lighting to each one.

Additional factors that are equally important in choosing the right water feature for your swimming pool:

2. Rock Waterfalls – More pool owners are requesting rock waterfalls and rock features to make their pool feel like a home resort. Freeform pools commonly use rock waterfalls.  They are ideal for natural-style pools that may resemble a tropical lagoon or mountain spring. The freeform pools use the large rocks surrounding the pool as a small deck. Large boulder clusters or rock planters help the waterfall blend into the pool area.

Some rock styles and colors are universally popular, but each region of the country has a preferred color pattern and rock type based on the appearance of the local stone. Many pool owners prefer natural stone, but the faux rock is a great option as well because it allows for customized formations.

The size of the waterfall should be relatively proportional to the size of the pool, but multiple waterfalls on an average-sized pool will look great with the right landscaping. Using several waterfalls for a dramatic effect typically works better than one massive waterfall.

So Many Features To Choose From The Possibilities Are Endless

3.  Sound – Most homeowners opt for an added water pool feature for their homes not only because of the visual aesthetics but also because of the sound it produces. It is equally significant to establish the mood that your water feature will create. A well-designed pool water feature must not only be visually appealing but equally enticing to other senses. Ambient noises like the sound of flowing water are said to produce a relaxing vibe and a calm atmosphere. While if you are opting for a quiet environment, then go for water features that do not produce sound.

4.  Flow Of The Water – Dynamics is also a significant part of swimming pool water feature design. The flow of water, including its direction and how it enters the pool, can cause corresponding effects on the overall look of the water feature. Fluidity in motion is one of the factors which make swimming pool water features visually satisfying. While some may opt to go with dynamic water features, others may choose to go with the stillness of the water. Some water features produce a stunning mirror-like surface that emanates tranquility.

5.  Lighting – Mood and accent lighting can be added to the water feature to enhance its ambiance and appearance. Warm lights or colored lights add visual interest and also make your water feature stand out, especially at night. Natural lighting is also another important factor as the way the water feature reflects and refracts sunlight causes an effect on the color.

6.  Budget – The budget plays an important part in choosing the right water feature for your swimming pool. Some may consider it to be the biggest constraint because it dictates the features which you can include in your water feature.

7. Effects – Water features often include features that can be adjusted to different settings, providing different effects. The light settings are activated depending on the current mood of the user or the personal preference of the homeowner.

Gappsi designed and installed a small vinyl pool that was built with concrete walls and a liner in this backyard in Seaford NY. Our team at Gappsi incorporated stairs and a sundeck into the pool to add additional features. The sundeck has 12 inches of water and it’s used to keep the lunch chairs with a table that will hold an umbrella. A water feature with led spillover bowls and a 4 feet sheer descent. The water bowls are coordinated with the pool lights which also change colors. We paved the entire backyard and pool coping with G043 marble pavers.
