Patios Crawley

Crawley Patio Layers (RH10): As the spring arrives every year most of us have thoughts about spending more time in the fresh air and of course the garden (for the lucky ones that have one) is the most common place to achieve this. After a wet and windy winter in Crawley, the garden will likely be a bit too muddy to do much, therefore putting down a splendid new patio is the best answer to make the garden usable. If you currently have a patio but it has become wonky and overgrown with weeds you might well be considering having a new one built or perhaps getting the existing one re-laid if the paving slabs are still sound.

Although a smaller patio project may be something you could complete on your own if you are confident in that type of work, it is most likely that you will have to employ a skilled Crawley patio layer to carry out the project for you, especially for larger and more complex patios. It is not simply the laying of your garden patio that you need to look at but also the removal and disposal of the resulting waste materials and the introduction of the new patio supplies. You need to keep in mind that building patios is fairly heavy work, particularly if your existing patio was fixed with concrete. A large sized patio slab with a chunk of concrete on is going to be rather weighty, so you should at the very least find someone to help you lift these, should you elect to do-it-yourself.

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

The Laying of the Paving: When everything is got ready the patio layer will start installing the slabs, precisely how this stage proceeds will depend upon the type of material you have chosen, and will be comparatively uncomplicated if the surface preparation was executed properly and the resulting base is level and sound.

Patio Edgings Crawley: Although it will depend on the layout and style of your patio, you may be able to feature a stylish edging which will really give your patio a nice finish.

Resin Bound Driveways and Patios Crawley: A relatively recent invention which is mainly used for creating driveways in Crawley, but can equally be adapted for patios is the resin bound system. A resin bound surface comprises a combination of resin and coloured aggregate stones which can be mixed cold, on-site. The resulting surface is permeable, allowing rain water to pass through it, reducing the surface water problems that occasionally arise with paved areas. Resin bound patios and driveways are also available in a variety of colours, slip resistant, UV stable, colour fast, attractive, relatively maintenance free, durable, weed resistant and long lasting, they're in addition very versatile and can readily incorporate customized logos and designs, making them perfect for business as well as home use.
