Patios Dudley

Dudley Patio Layers (DY1): When the spring arrives each year most of you dream of spending much more time outdoors and obviously the garden (for those that have one) is the most obvious place to achieve this. After a wet and gloomy winter in Dudley, the garden could be a bit too muddy to walk on, so laying an attractive new patio would be the best answer to make the garden usable. If you've already got a patio but its starting to get uneven and overrun with weeds you might possibly be considering getting a new one or perhaps getting the old one re-laid if the paving slabs are still okay.

Although a limited patio assignment might well be a task that you could undertake on your own if you're confident in this type of undertaking, it is likely that you may need to search for a skilled Dudley patio layer to handle the project on your behalf, especially for larger patios. It isn't only the installing of your garden patio you must look at but the removing and disposal of the resulting waste materials plus the introduction of required patio materials. You need to bear in mind that installing patios can be quite back-breaking work, particularly if your existing patio was concreted in position. A large sized paving slab with a lump of concrete on is going to be rather heavy, so at the very least ask somebody to help you lift these, should you decide to tackle it yourself.

Paving Slabs/Patio Slabs Dudley: Patio slabs or paving slabs are offered in all manner of shapes and sizes, the prices can vary widely as well. What type of slabs you select for your own patio may be dependant upon your allowed budget, the need to match existing materials, personal tastes and current trends. The most popular patio slabs laid in Dudley gardens nowadays are manufactured from concrete or sandstone and a variety of these can be obtained in DIY merchants and garden centres. Prices (in 2018) range from approximately £3 up to £15 each though they're often sold in bulk packs.

Patio Grouting Dudley: With existing patios one of the chief issues is with crumbling joints or grouting. When this occurs the patio area will look untidy and will doubtless have weeds and grass poking up between the slabs. You can use weedkiller to alleviate the issue or pour boiling water on the weeds which is a good solution to get rid of weeds without chemicals. Replacing the grout is not simple and the hardest task is to get rid of the existing grout which will probably be a sand and cement mortar. If the patio slabs are rocking and loose it is pointless replacing the joints as it won't have much effect, and you really need to get the entire thing re-slabbed. If the slabs are reasonably stable you can go ahead and rake out the old mortar by using 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-grout the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some are applied using the wet slurry approach while others use a dry brush-in technique. (Tags: Patio Grouting Dudley, Patio Re-Grouting Dudley)
