The proper preparing of the area where the patio is to be situated is vital if the resulting patio is to be perfect. Such preparation includes scooping out and removing the topsoil to an appropriate level, barrowing on a good layer of hardcore, compacting this down and applying a final 25mm covering of bedding material like sharp sand.

The Final Paving: When the area has all been prepared the patio builder will start putting down the slabs, precisely how this stage proceeds depends upon the materials you've chosen, and should be relatively straightforward so long as the ground preparation was executed properly and the base is flat and stable.

Materials for Patios: There are a lot of different materials from which a patio area or pathway can be crafted and the most commonplace you will find are bricks, gravel, composite materials, setts, asphalt, concrete, blocks, sandstone, limestone, slabs, cobbles, granite and slate.

Patio Grouting Fenton

Patio Grouting Fenton: Grouted joints which are eroding or cracked is the major issue you will come across with older patios. Whenever you're facing this scenario, you'll almost certainly have grass and weeds poking up in between the slabs and the whole patio will look a shambles. To deal with this, you could perhaps saturate the weeds with boiling water which is the best non-chemical solution to kill weeds, or you could employ an effective weedkiller. It is likely to be a big job to restore the grout, and the most trying task of all is the removal of the old, eroded sand and cement grout. Having the whole thing re-done is the only real solution if the patio slabs are rocking and loose, given that replacing the grouting joints will not solve the issue. Cleaning out the damaged mortar using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade, will be the next stage if your slabs are firm and stable. Give the whole area a good clean-up once you're done and re-grout the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these use a dry brush-in system and others are applied using the wet slurry approach.

Resin Bound Patios Fenton: A more contemporary invention which is predominately used for driveways in Fenton, but can equally be used for patios is the resin bound system.

Resin bound patios and driveways are also weed resistant, long lasting, non-slip, attractive, colour fast, available in a variety of colours, UV stable, durable and relatively maintenance free, they are additionally highly adaptive and can incorporate custom designs and logos, making them suitable for commercial as well as home use.
