Patios Burnley

Burnley Patio Layers (BB11): The moment springtime appears each year most of us start to think about spending a lot more time out in the fresh air and of course the garden is the most common place to achieve this. After a wet and windy winter in Burnley, your garden may be a bit too muddy to walk on, therefore installing a fabulous new patio could be the obvious answer to this setback. If you've already got a patio but it is out of level and covered with weeds you may very well be wondering about having a new one built or perhaps just lifting and re-laying the existing one if the patio slabs are still in a good state of repair.

Although a smaller patio project may well be something that you could undertake by yourself if you are conversant with that type of undertaking, it is likely that you'll want to search for a competent Burnley patio layer to complete the project for you, especially for bigger and more complicated patios. It is not only the installation of your garden patio that you must take into account but the removal and disposal of the waste materials plus the introduction of the required patio materials. You need to keep in mind that installing patios is back-breaking work, especially when the existing slabs are bedded in concrete. A big patio slab with a lump of concrete on is going to be rather weighty, so at least find somebody to assist you in lifting these, should you elect to tackle it yourself.

Area Preparation: This phase of the patio project should include the removal and disposal of surface debris and existing paving waste, digging up of topsoil to get down to the more stable sub-soil, putting in of a hardcore material or sub-base and the resulting pressing down and levelling of this material, overlaying using a bedding layer such as sharp sand.

Paving the Area: When all has been prepared the patio contractor will begin putting down the patio slabs, exactly how this level proceeds will depend upon the exact materials you've selected, and should be reasonably straightforward as long as the area preparation was done correctly and the base is level and solid.

Materials: There are a wide assortment of materials that may be used for building a patio, amongst the most popular are: composite tiles, bricks, granite, gravel, slate, sandstone, cobbles, slabs, setts, concrete, limestone, asphalt and blocks.

Patio Slabs/Paving Slabs Burnley: Patio slabs or paving slabs are offered in all manner of sizes and shapes, their prices can vary widely too. What kind of slabs you use for your own patio might be influenced by current trends, your allowed budget, the need to match pre-existing materials and personal preference. The most favoured patio slabs laid in Burnley these days are manufactured from concrete or sandstone and these can easily be purchased in local garden centres and DIY merchants.

Patio Cleaning Burnley: If you are putting in an entire new patio in Burnley then you'll probably not be currently worried about patio cleaning, although you will need to do this fairly regularly so as to keep your new patio looking in the best possible condition.

Patio Re-Grouting Burnley

Patio Grouting Burnley: With existing patios one of the chief problems is with crumbling grouting or joints. If this occurs the patio can look messy and will doubtless have grass and weeds growing up in between the slabs. You could use weedkiller to ease this problem or pour boiling water on the weeds which is an outstanding solution to get rid of weeds without using chemicals. Repairing the grouting is not simple and the hardest task is to get rid of the existing grout which is most likely to be a cement and sand mix. If the patio slabs are loose and unstable there is no point replacing the joints since it won't have much effect, and you really need to have the entire patio re-done. If the slabs are reasonably stable and firm you can press on and hook out the damaged mortar by utilizing a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade. Give the entire patio a really good clean-up when you are finished and re-grout the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some use a dry brush-in technique and others are applied using the wet slurry process. Most specialist patio layers in Burnley will tackle patio repointing, so contact one near you to get a quote.
