The benefits of having a patio installed
Patios are important because they allow you to spend time outside. Whether you want to relax, enjoy the sunshine or cook on it, a patio is an ideal place for this. You can also install lighting and heaters if required, making your patio usable all year round.
It’s essential that your new patio is laid on a solid base, so it doesn’t sink or move when heavy objects are placed on it. This means laying concrete over the ground, making sure there are no cavities underneath where moisture might collect and cause damage later down the line. A contractor should always check for any signs of weakness before beginning work.
Types of patios available
There are different types of patio available, including flagstone, pergolas, pavers, or even a simple slab of concrete. With the latter, you may want to put down some bark chips to make it more aesthetically pleasing.
If you are looking for entertainment areas, then something like an outdoor kitchen would be ideal, along with either pergolas or arbours that will give shade. Even if our clients are looking for something rather simple such as having a BBQ on their patio, they will need to choose between whether they require natural stone or bricks beneath them.
Materials used in patio construction
Patios can be made from either bricks, concrete or natural stone. However, it is more likely that you will require the brick and concrete option as natural stone is very expensive and therefore beyond many people’s budgets.
Composite decks are also available, but they are not quite as popular as the other materials due to their high price.
How long does it take to build my new patio?
While the actual construction of the slab will not take too long, you should allow at least three weeks for building work and preparation. This is because there are other jobs that need to be carried out beforehand, such as backfilling soil around an existing building or removing old flooring. Once a site has been prepared, our team from Patio Builders will start with laying a cement screed on which they can then lay a compacted hardcore base along with perforated drainage pipes. Finally, the finishing touch is that of adding a sealant to help protect against weeds growing up through the cracks in the slab.
