Patio Layers Deal

Deal Patio Layers (CT14): When the spring arrives each year we contemplate spending much more time outdoors and obviously the garden (for those lucky enough to have one) is the most obvious place for that to happen. After a windy and wet winter in Deal, your garden may be a bit too muddy to walk on, so the installation of a clean new patio may be the obvious answer to get the garden looking great again. If you do currently have a patio but it is covered with weeds and uneven you may very well be considering getting a new one laid down or perhaps getting the existing one re-laid if the patio slabs are still in a decent condition.

The Planning of Your Project: You should always speak with your chosen patio contractor concerning certain things which have to be decided in the planning stage, for example: the measuring the area to be patioed, are there any obstacles to think about such as (trees, drain covers etc), how easy will it be to access the patio, what materials are you planning to use, does the area need to be levelled, what is the perfect position for your patio, does it need to slope away from the property, what is your patio area to be used for as well as other considerations that your Deal patio expert will highlight.

The correct preparation of the area where the patio is to be placed is crucial if the completed patio is to be worthy of your efforts. This is the step that includes digging out any turf and topsoil to a suitable level, adding a 50 to 80mm layer of hardcore, compacting this down with a vibrating plate and applying a final covering of bedding material such as sharp sand.

The Laying of the Paving: When all has been prepared your patio specialist will begin putting down the slabs, precisely how this stage proceeds will depend upon the materials you decided on, and will be quite straightforward if the ground preparation was carried out correctly and the resulting base is level and solid.

Materials: There are a diverse range of materials which can be used for building patios, among the most widely used are: slabs, asphalt, bricks, limestone, setts, gravel, slate, concrete, composite tiles, cobbles, sandstone, granite and blocks.

Paving Slabs/Patio Slabs Deal: Patio or paving slabs are offered in all manner of sizes and shapes, the prices can differ widely too. Which type of slabs you use for your patio might be influenced by current trends, personal taste, whether you need to match existing materials and your budget. The favourite patio slabs used in Deal these days are made from concrete or sandstone and a wide variety of these are readily available in garden centres and DIY outlets. Prices (at the time of writing) start from about £3 up to £15 though they are typically sold in bulk packs.

Driveway Installation Deal: At the same time as you're having a new patio laid you may want to freshen up your driveway as well. Many patio builders in Deal will also be prepared to handle this task for you, and it could be better to get it done simultaneously so you only generate one lot of mess and you are able to use one large skip for your removal of waste. This will of course depend on your budget and whether or not it will stretch to this additional work, but it is definitely worth taking into consideration.

Hard Landscaping Deal: Patios, paths and driveways can all be grouped under the umbrella term of "hard landscaping", which effectively means any type of garden architecture and design made from construction materials, in contrast to plant based materials like shrubs, grass and trees, which are normally referred to as "soft landscaping". To a certain degree garden furniture can also be described as "hard landscaping". (Tags: Hard Landscaping Deal)

Patio Jet Washing Deal

Patio Cleaning Deal: If you're installing a whole new patio in Deal then you'll likely not be immediately too worried about patio cleaning, though you'll need to do this on a regular basis so as to keep your new patio in the best possible condition. If you happen to be extending or adding to an existing patio then it might be advisable to get those old patio slabs cleaned up so that they match the newly laid slabs as closely as possible. Typically patio cleaning is done by chemical cleaning or jet washing and most local Deal patio cleaning firms will quite possibly provide both services. Professional cleaners use very high pressure equipment which is far superior to the kind of jet washer that some people have in their shed. (Tags: Patio Cleaning Deal, Jet Washing Patios Deal)

Patio Grouting Deal

Patio Grouting Deal: With old patios one of the main issues is with cracked and crumbling joints or grouting. If this happens your patio will look very messy and likely have weeds and grass establishing themselves between the slabs. You could constantly use weedkiller to alleviate the issue or saturate the weeds with boiling water which is a very good solution to get rid of weeds without chemicals. Repairing the grouting can be a big job and the hardest thing is to remove the old grout which is most likely a sand and cement mix. If the slabs are loose and unstable there is no point repairing the joints because it is unlikely to have much effect, and you actually need to have the entire patio re-done. If the slabs are relatively secure and stable you can press on and rake out the damaged mortar using a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or better still an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade. Give the entire patio a good cleanup when you are finished and re-joint the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some are applied using the wet slurry approach while others use a dry brush-in system. (Tags: Patio Grouting Deal, Patio Re-Grouting Deal)

Flagstone Patios Deal: Of the many materials you can use for constructing a patio, flagstone is certainly one of the best. There are plenty of reasons why you need to consider this material for your patio in Deal, such as the fact that they look more natural, plants can be grown between the stones to soften the look, flagstones have irregular shapes and textures, they are ideal for "free form" patios, providing lots of scope for creativity, flagstone patios can be laid dry to provide a permeable surface, flagstone patios are long lasting and durable and they come in subtle shades with innate variations. This sort of patio has huge appeal mostly due to the fact that flagstones are naturally occurring stones which are quarried and fashioned from sandstone, slate, limestone, bluestone and travertine.

Resin Bound Patios and Driveways Deal: A relatively recent invention which is predominately used for driveways in Deal, but can also be used for patios is the resin bound technique. A resin bound surface is made up of a mixture of aggregate stones and resin which can be mixed on-site, cold. The resulting surface is permeable, allowing rain water to easily pass through it, preventing some of the flooding problems that can sometimes arise with paving slabs. Resin bound patios are also relatively maintenance free, long lasting, attractive, slip resistant, durable, weed resistant, colour fast, available in different colours and UV stable, they are in addition highly adaptable and can incorporate bespoke logos and designs, making them perfect for business as well as residential use.
