Patios Colne

Colne Patio Layers (BB8): The minute springtime arrives each year most of us dream of spending more time outdoors and obviously the garden (if you have one) is the most natural place for that to occur. After a long and rainy winter in Colne, the garden is most likely to be a bit too muddy to walk on, so installing an attractive new patio should be the easiest solution to get your garden ready for the summer. If you do currently have a patio but it is starting to get wonky and overgrown with weeds you might be contemplating getting a new one built or perhaps just lifting and re-laying the existing one if the slabs are still okay.

While a modest patio assignment may well be a task that you could attempt by yourself should you be used to that kind of undertaking, it is likely that you will have to employ a professional Colne patio layer to handle the job for you, especially for bigger and more complicated patios. It isn't simply the installation of your garden patio that you should consider but the removal and disposal of the resulting waste matter plus the introduction of the required patio products. You also need to keep in mind that laying patios is heavy work, particularly if your existing patio was fixed with concrete. A large sized paving slab with a chunk of concrete on is likely to be extremely weighty, therefore you should at the very least ask someone to help you lift these, should you opt to do-it-yourself.

Preparing the Area: This stage of the patio project includes the stripping and disposal of surrounding debris and unwanted paving waste, extraction of the topsoil layer to reach the firmer sub-soil, putting in of a sub-base or hardcore material and the subsequent compacting and levelling of this material, overlaying using a bedding material like sharp sand.

The Final Paving: When the area has all been prepared the patio contractor will start putting down the slabs, just how this level proceeds will depend upon the types of materials you opted for, and might be pretty uncomplicated so long as the ground preparation was executed properly and the base is sound and flat.

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

You could have a coping stone edging, a rounded kerbstone edging, a brick/blockwork edging, a contoured stone edging or a low brick wall edging. Check with your Colne patio layer about the available options and find out what they think will best go with your style of patio. They will probably have images of patio edgings they have used in the past.

Patio Pressure Cleaning Colne

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Colne: If you're laying a complete new patio in Colne then you will most likely not currently be thinking about patio cleaning, though you'll need to be doing this fairly regularly so as to keep your new patio in tip top condition. If you happen to be extending or adding to an existing patio then it might be advisable to get the old patio slabs properly cleaned so that they blend in with the new slabs. Normally the cleaning of patios is done by chemical cleaning or high-pressure jet washing and most local Colne patio cleaning companies will probably provide both of these services. Professionals use very high pressure equipment that is far superior to the type of jet washer that you might have in your shed.

Patio Re-Grouting Colne

Patio Grouting Colne: With old, pre-existing patios one of the chief issues is with crumbling joints or grouting. If this occurs your patio area can look awful and have weeds and grass growing up between the slabs. You can use weedkiller to relieve this issue or pour boiling water on the weeds which is an outstanding solution to kill weeds without chemicals. Re-doing the grout can be challenging and the toughest task is to remove the old grout which is probably going to be a sand and cement mix. If the paving slabs are loose and moving replacing the joints is pointless as it won't make much difference, and you really need to have the whole patio re-slabbed. If your slabs are firm you can go ahead and rake out the old mortar by utilizing a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade. Give the whole patio a thorough clean-up once you are finished and re-joint the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some use a dry brush-in technique and others are applied using the wet slurry approach. (Tags: Patio Grouting Colne, Patio Re-Grouting Colne)
