Patios Bentley

Bentley Patio Layers (DN5): When springtime appears each year we have thoughts about spending a lot more time out of the house and of course the garden (for those lucky enough to have one) is the most natural place for that to occur. After a long and wet winter in Bentley, the garden could be a bit too muddy to walk on, therefore the installation of a clean new patio could be the easiest solution to this problem. If you've already got a patio but it's starting to get wonky and covered with weeds you may very well be contemplating getting a new one put in or perhaps getting the existing one re-laid if the paving slabs are still fit for purpose.

Although a smaller patio assignment may well be something you could attempt by yourself should you be keen on that kind of work, it is most likely that you will need to employ a professional Bentley patio layer to carry out the project for you, especially for more substantial patios. It is not only the installing of your garden patio that you must consider but the removal and disposal of the resulting waste and the introduction of new patio materials.

A reliable Bentley patio builder will be able to advise you on exactly what you should and shouldn't have, suggest and order appropriate materials and produce the best patio design for you to suit your available area. Always ask for a sales brochure, most decent patio layers will have access to a portfolio of assignments they have recently accomplished in the Bentley area. By using this brochure you should be able to get a notion of precisely what your patio project will look like when it is completed, this enables you to choose your preferred design and materials.

The Planning of Your Project: You should always discuss with your patio expert regarding certain considerations which should be decided during the planning stage, such as: what materials are to be used, the measuring the area to be patioed, are there any obstacles to consider such as (trees, drains etc), what is your patio area going to be used for, what's the perfect location for your patio, how easy will it be to access the patio, do you need a gradient away from the property, does the area need levelling out and also other concerns that your Bentley patio contractor will point out.

Preparation of the Area: This phase of the patio project should include the removal and disposal of surface materials and unwanted paving waste, extraction of the topsoil layer to get down to the firmer sub-soil, putting in of a hardcore material or sub-base and the subsequent levelling and compacting of this material, overlaying using a bedding material for instance sharp sand.

Laying the Paving: When all has been prepared your patio contractor will begin installing the slabs, just how this process proceeds depends upon the materials you've selected, and might be quite uncomplicated so long as the surface preparation was done properly and the resulting base is stable and level.

Patio Edging Bentley: Dependant upon the layout and style of the patio, you might be able to use a complimentary edging which really gives a patio that professional finish. You can buy many types of patio edgings, although they'll not all be appropriate for your particular patio finish, so be sure to choose the right product if you decide to go with an edging. You could use a kerbstone edging, a contoured stone edging, a coping stone edging, a blockwork/brick edging or a low brick wall edging. Check with your Bentley patio installer regarding the options and what they consider will best go with your style of patio. They could have images of patio edgings they've used in the past.

Materials Used for Paving: There is a broad variety of materials which can be used for building a patio, amongst the most popular are: composite blocks, slate, bricks, slabs, limestone, granite, sandstone, gravel, cobbles, concrete, setts, asphalt and blocks.

Patio Slabs/Paving Slabs Bentley: Patio or paving slabs are offered in all manner of sizes and shapes, their prices can vary widely as well. Which slabs you select for your patio might be dependant upon personal tastes, your allowed budget, current trends and whether you need to match pre-existing materials. The most popular patio slabs laid in Bentley today are manufactured from sandstone or concrete and a wide variety of these can easily be bought in local DIY merchants and garden centres. Prices (at the time of writing) start from approximately £3 up to £15 although they are usually sold in bulk packs of twenty or more.

Driveways Bentley: When you are getting a new patio laid you might need to install a driveway too. Some patio builders in Bentley will also be prepared to deal with this job for you, and it may be better to do this at the same time so that you only generate one lot of mess and you will be able to use just one skip for your waste removal. This of course will be dependent on your budget and whether or not it will stretch to this extra work, but it is certainly worth looking into.

Patio Pressure Cleaning Bentley

Patio Cleaning Bentley: If you are laying an entire new patio in Bentley then you will probably not be immediately thinking about patio cleaning, however, you will need to be doing this fairly regularly in order to keep your new patio looking in the best possible condition. If you happen to be extending or adding to an existing patio then it might be a good idea to have those previously laid patio slabs cleaned so that they blend in with the new slabs. Usually the cleaning of patios is done by chemical cleaning or high-pressure water jetting and most local Bentley patio cleaning contractors will likely provide both of these services. Professional cleaners use extremely high pressure equipment that is far better than the kind of jet washer that you might have in your garden shed or garage.

Patio Re-Grouting Bentley

Patio Grouting Bentley: With old, pre-existing patios one of the chief problems is with cracked and crumbling grouting or joints. When this occurs your patio may look a mess and have grass and weeds sprouting up between the slabs. You can use weedkiller to alleviate the annoying problem or saturate the weeds with boiling water which is a very good non-chemical way to eradicate weeds. Re-doing the grout can be a big job and the toughest task is to get rid of the existing grout which is most likely to be a cement and sand mix. If your patio slabs are loose and rocking it is pointless replacing the joints because it will not solve the issue, and you need to to have the whole area re-done. If your slabs are secure and stable you can hook out the old mortar with a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade. Give the whole patio a thorough cleanup once you are done and re-joint the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these use a dry brush-in technique and others are applied using the wet slurry process. (Tags: Patio Grouting Bentley, Patio Re-Grouting Bentley)

Resin Bound Driveways and Patios Bentley: A relatively recent invention which is in the main used for creating driveways in Bentley, but can equally be adapted for patios is the resin bound technique. A resin bound surface comprises a combination of coloured aggregate stones and resin which can be mixed cold, on-site. The surface is permeable, allowing rain water to easily pass through it, avoiding some of the flooding issues that can occasionally occur with paved patios. Resin bound patios are also weed resistant, colour fast, hardwearing, available in different colours, UV stable, long lasting, slip resistant, easy to maintain and attractive, they are additionally highly adaptable and can easily incorporate custom designs and logos, making them perfect for commercial as well as residential use.

Artificial Grass Bentley

Artificial Lawns Bentley: Another option that you may wish to consider rather than a patio is artificial grass, which is similarly long lasting and low maintenance and can be done more cheaply than a stone patio and with less disruption and mess. Artificial grass looks the same as real grass, both from afar and close up, but it never grows and never needs cutting. If you're on the lookout for a more affordable solution for your precious garden space in Bentley, then artificial grass might be just the perfect alternative for you. A lot of concrete and stone can give a very stark appearance to your garden, the natural green colour of artificial grass is more soothing and easier on the eye. The cost of artificial grass in Bentley is similar to when using the cheapest quality paving but less than half the cost of higher end paving slabs.
