Preparing the Area: This stage of the patio project includes the removal and disposal of surrounding debris and any existing paving waste, extraction of topsoil to reach the firmer sub-soil, introduction of a sub-base or hardcore material and the subsequent tamping and levelling of this material, overlaying using a bedding material for example sharp sand.

Laying the Paving: When everything has been prepared the patio builder will begin putting down the patio slabs, precisely how this level proceeds will depend upon the types of materials you have picked, and ought to be reasonably uncomplicated as long as the surface preparation was done correctly and the resulting base is stable and level.

Patio Edging Hindley: Although it will depend on the planned layout and style of your patio, you might be able to include a smart edging which will really finish the job off nicely. You can find numerous types of edgings for patios, although they will not all be suitable for your specific patio finish, so be sure to choose the right product if you opt to go with an edging. You could have a contoured stone edging, a kerbstone edging, a brick/blockwork edging, a low brick wall edging or a coping stone edging. Talk to your Hindley patio layer about the options and find out what they think will look best with your patio. They will have pictures of patio edgings they've used on past jobs.

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

Patio Grouting Hindley: With old patios one of the main problems is with cracked and crumbling grouting or joints. When this occurs your patio may look a mess and doubtless have grass and weeds growing up between the slabs. You could continually use weedkiller to alleviate this problem or saturate the weeds with boiling water which is a great non-chemical technique to destroy weeds. Replacing the grouting can be a tricky job and the toughest task is to remove the existing grout which is probably going to be a sand and cement mortar. If the patio slabs are loose and unstable replacing the joints is pointless since it is unlikely to solve the problem, and you really need to get the whole thing re-slabbed. If the slabs are firm you can go ahead and rake out the old mortar using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire patio a good clean-up once you are done and re-grout the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these are applied using the wet slurry process while others use a dry brush-in system. Most professional patio layers in Hindley will do patio repointing, so contact one near you for a quote.
