Before any work begins, you'll want to talk things over with your patio builder. This is regarded as the planning period and is important if your finished patio is to meet your requirements. This initial dialogue should take into account such matters as what sort of paving slabs will be used, are there any trees or drains in the way, is there a need for site levelling, where can a skip be positioned, and the preferred location for your patio.

The proper preparation of the area where your patio is going to be placed is really important if the completed patio is to be acceptable. This is the step that includes excavating and removing the topsoil to an appropriate level, adding a 50 to 80mm layer of hardcore, compacting this using a vibrating plate and finally spreading on a covering of sharp sand.

Paving the Area: When the area has all been prepared the patio builder will begin installing the patio slabs, how this level proceeds will depend upon the type of material you decided on, and should be fairly straightforward so long as the surface preparation was done properly and the base is sound and level.

Materials for Paving: You will find a broad variety of materials which may be used for building patios, among the most widely used are: cobbles, limestone, bricks, composite materials, asphalt, setts, slate, sandstone, slabs, gravel, concrete, granite and blocks.

Patio Slabs/Paving Slabs Hoddesdon: Paving or patio slabs come in all sizes and shapes, the prices can differ widely too. Which slabs you use for your own patio might be influenced by whether you need to match existing materials, your planned budget, personal tastes and current fashions. The favourite patio slabs laid in Hoddesdon nowadays are made of concrete or sandstone and a variety of these can easily be purchased in local garden centres and DIY merchants. Prices (at the time of writing) start from roughly £3 up to £15 each though they're generally sold in bulk packs.

Patio Cleaning Hoddesdon

Patio Cleaning Hoddesdon: If you are putting in a whole new patio in Hoddesdon then you will likely not currently be thinking about patio cleaning, however, you will need to be doing this on a regular basis in order to keep your new patio in tip top condition. If you're adding to or extending a pre-existing patio then it might be a good idea to have those old patio slabs cleaned up so that they blend in with the new slabs. Normally patio cleaning is achieved by power washing or chemical cleaning and local Hoddesdon patio cleaning companies will quite possibly offer both of those services.

Resin Bound Driveways and Patios Hoddesdon: A more recent invention that is in the main used for driveways in Hoddesdon, but can effectively be adapted for patios is the resin bound system. A resin bound surface is made up of a mixture of resin and aggregate stones which is mixed cold, on-site. The resulting surface is permeable, allowing water to pass through it, preventing the flooding problems that may occur with paved patios. Resin bound patios are also UV stable, weed resistant, attractive, long lasting, colour fast, hardwearing, slip resistant, relatively maintenance free and available in a variety of colours, they are furthermore extremely adaptive and can readily incorporate bespoke logos and designs, making them great for business as well as home use.

How to Lay a Patio

Patio Sealing Hoddesdon: Sealing is a good way to protect your paved area, patio, driveway or path in Hoddesdon and is very effective for block paved areas where the sand joints can easily be eroded while cleaning. Sealing helps prevent this annoying loss of sand which can be a typical problem when pressure washing in particular. This isn't the sole benefit of sealing which should also prevent weed, moss and grass growth, reduce the necessity for repairs, make the area quicker and easier to clean, enhance the look and colour of your paving slabs or blocks, prevent staining and prolong the lifespan of your driveway or patio. Patio and pavement sealants are waterproof and don't blister or peel, various types are available for different purposes including natural stone sealants, tarmac restorers, block paving sealants and imprinted concrete sealers.

Artificial Lawns Hoddesdon

Artificial Lawns Hoddesdon: Something which you might want to look at rather than a patio is artificial grass, which is equally long lasting and low maintenance and can be done more cheaply than a stone patio and with less disruption and mess. Artificial grass looks similar to real grass, both from a distance and close up, but it doesn't grow and never needs mowing. If you're searching for a more affordable solution for your garden space in Hoddesdon, then artificial grass might be just the perfect alternative for you. Excessive concrete and stone can give a very dull appearance to your garden area, the green colour of artificial grass is easier on the eye and more soothing. The cost of artificial grass in Hoddesdon is roughly the same as when using the cheapest quality paving slabs but less than half the price of high end paving slabs.
