Patios Broadstairs

Broadstairs Patio Layers (CT10): As the spring arrives each year many of us dream of spending a lot more time outdoors and of course the garden (if you have one) is the most obvious place for that to happen. After a long and wet winter in Broadstairs, your garden is sure to be a bit too muddy to do much, therefore the installation of a clean new patio would be the best solution to make the garden usable. If you already have a patio but it has become covered with weeds and wonky you might possibly be considering having a new one or perhaps just lifting and re-laying the old one if the patio slabs are still sound.

Whilst a modest patio assignment may well be a task that you could accomplish by yourself if you're used to that type of undertaking, its likely that you will have to locate a competent Broadstairs patio layer to manage the project for you, particularly for larger and trickier patios. It is not only the installing of your garden patio you need to take into account but also the removing and disposal of the resulting waste materials plus the introduction of the new patio products. You should also bear in mind that laying patios is fairly back-breaking work, particularly if the existing slabs were concreted in place. A large sized patio slab with a layer of concrete on is likely to be rather heavy, therefore you should at the very least find someone to help you lift these, should you decide to do-it-yourself.

Planning Your Project: It is best to discuss with your chosen patio contractor with regards to specific things that have to be decided in the planning stage, for example: does the area need to be levelled, the accurate measuring of the area to be patioed, what patio materials are you planning to use, what is your patioed area going to be used for, do you need it to slope away from the property, are there any obstacles in the way (trees, drain covers etc), where is the perfect position for your patio, how easy will it be to access the patio and other concerns that your Broadstairs patio builder will highlight.

Preparation of the Area: This phase of the patio project will include the removal and disposal of surrounding materials and any old paving waste, removal of the topsoil layer to reach the more stable sub-soil, putting in of a hardcore material or sub-base and the subsequent pressing down and levelling of this material, covering using a bedding material for instance sharp sand.

Laying the Paving: When all has been prepared the patio layer will start installing the patio slabs, precisely how this level proceeds will depend upon the types of materials you decided on, and should be quite straightforward so long as the area preparation was carried out properly and the final base is sound and flat.

Patio Edging Broadstairs: Dependant upon the planned style and layout of the patio, you might be able to include a smart edging which really gives a patio that professional finish. There are several types of edgings for patios, although they won't all be suitable for your particular patio finish, so choose the right product if you want to go for an edging. You could pick a contoured stone edging, a coping stone edging, a rounded kerbstone edging, a brick/blockwork edging or a low brick wall edging. Talk to your Broadstairs patio installer concerning the available options and what they believe will best go with your style of patio. They could have pictures of patio edgings they've used on other jobs.

Patio Cleaning Broadstairs

Patio Cleaning Broadstairs: If you're putting down an entire new patio in Broadstairs then you'll likely not immediately be worried about patio cleaning, although you'll need to be doing this regularly so as to keep your new patio looking in tip top shape. If you're extending or adding to a pre-existing patio then you may want to get those old patio slabs properly cleaned so that they match the newly laid slabs as closely as possible. Most often the cleaning of patios is done by or chemical cleaning and local Broadstairs patio cleaning firms will probably offer both of these services. Professionals use extremely high pressure equipment that is a lot better than the type of jet washer some people have in their garage or shed.

Patio Grouting Broadstairs: With old, pre-existing patios one of the chief problems is with crumbling and cracked grouting or joints. When this occurs the patio area may look messy and likely have weeds and grass establishing themselves in between the slabs. You could constantly use weedkiller to relieve the problem or dowse the weeds with boiling water which is a superb solution to destroy weeds without chemicals. Repairing the grouting isn't easy and the hardest job is to remove the existing grout which is most likely a cement and sand mix. If your slabs are loose and unstable there is little point re-doing the joints since it won't solve the issue, and you actually need to get the entire patio re-slabbed. If your slabs are relatively firm you can go ahead and hook out the damaged mortar using a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or better still a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire patio a really good cleanup once you are done and re-grout the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some use a dry brush-in system and others are applied using the wet slurry process. Most specialist patio layers in Broadstairs will happily help you with patio repointing, so try contacting one near you for a quotation.

Resin Bound Patios Broadstairs: A more contemporary innovation that is mostly used for driveways in Broadstairs, but can equally be adapted for patios is the resin bound process. A resin bound surface is made up of a mixture of aggregate stones and resin which can be mixed cold, on-site. The surface is permeable, enabling water to easily pass through it, preventing some of the surface water problems that often occur with paved areas. Resin bound patios are also slip resistant, attractive, relatively maintenance free, available in different colours, colour fast, UV stable, weed resistant, hardwearing and long lasting, they are in addition extremely versatile and can incorporate bespoke designs and logos, making them perfect for commercial as well as residential use.
