Patio Layers

UK Patio Layers: As soon as springtime appears each year most of us have thoughts about spending much more time outdoors and of course the garden (for those lucky enough to have one) is the most obvious place for that to happen. After a dismal and wet winter in the UK, the garden could be a bit of a quagmire, so putting down a fabulous new patio should be the best solution to get your garden ready for the summer. If you've already got a patio but it has become overrun with weeds and wonky you will be contemplating having a new one put in or perhaps just lifting and re-laying the old one if the slabs are still usable.

Though a modest patio assignment may be something you could do on your own should you be keen on that kind of work, it is most likely that you will have to locate a competent UK patio layer to manage the job for you, especially for more complex patios. It is not only the laying of your garden patio you must think about but also the removal and disposal of the resulting waste materials and the introduction of the required patio supplies. You need to bear in mind that laying patios is back-breaking work, especially if your existing slabs are concreted in place. A large paving slab with a layer of concrete on it can be rather weighty, so at least get somebody to help you lift these, should you opt to do-it-yourself.

A competent UK patio contractor can advise you on what you should and shouldn't have, suggest and order suitable materials and come up with an ideal patio design for you to sit nicely in your available area. Always ask for a sales brochure, any dependable patio builder will be willing to show you a portfolio of projects they have recently carried out in the UK area. By using this portfolio you may be able to get a good idea of exactly what your project will be like when its done, this will help you to determine your preferred materials and design.

Planning Your Project: You must discuss with your patio contractor in relation to specific things that must be decided in the planning stage, for example: easy access to the patio, what patio materials are to be used, does the area need to be levelled, where is the perfect position for your patio, the measuring the area to be patioed, do you need it to slope away from the property, are there any obstacles to think about such as (trees, manholes etc), what is the patioed area to be used for and other concerns which your UK patio specialist will explain.

Area Preparation: This step of the patio project will include the stripping and disposal of surface debris and any unwanted paving waste, digging up of topsoil to get down to the firmer sub-soil, putting in of a hardcore or sub-base and the resulting tamping and levelling of this material, overlaying using a bedding layer like sharp sand.

Paving the Area: When everything has been got ready your patio builder will commence laying the patio slabs, how this process proceeds depends upon the types of materials you opted for, and might be pretty uncomplicated so long as the surface preparation was done correctly and the resulting base is solid and flat.
