You could have a blockwork/brick edging, a short brick wall edging, a coping stone edging, a kerbstone edging or a wavy stone edging. Ask your Faversham patio installer regarding the available options and what they believe will look best with your style of patio.

Patio Cleaning Faversham

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Faversham: If you are putting in a whole new patio in Faversham then you'll likely not be concerned with patio cleaning, although you'll need to be doing this fairly regularly so as to keep your new patio in the best possible shape. If you happen to be adding to or extending a pre-existing patio area then it might be a good idea to get those previously laid patio slabs cleaned up so that they blend in with the new slabs.

Issues With Faversham Patios: All through this website I have dealt with a few of the problems that can affect an old patio, but to review, here are the main issues which are liable to arise with a patio: weeds growing in the joints, trip hazards due to uneven slabs, unstable or loose slabs, damaged or cracked slabs, stained patio slabs, dirty patio slabs, sunken slabs, standing water due to poor drainage, slabs covered in moss, lichen and algae, leaning edges.

Patio Sealing Faversham: Applying sealant is a fantastic way to protect your path, patio, paved area or driveway in Faversham and is especially effective for block paved areas where the sand can easily be flushed out of the joints whilst cleaning. Sealing stops this irksome sand loss that is a regular issue when jet washing in particular. This is by no means the only benefit of sealing which can also restrict the growth of moss, grass and weed, lengthen the lifespan of your driveway or patio, reduce the need for future repairs, make the paved area easier and quicker to clean, enhance the look and colour of your patio blocks or slabs and avert unsightly staining. Pavement and patio sealers are water resistant and shouldn't blister or peel, various products can be purchased for different materials including natural stone sealers, tarmac sealers, imprinted concrete sealants and block paving sealers.
