Patios Kingswinford

Kingswinford Patio Layers (DY6): As soon as the spring appears each year most of us start thinking about spending more time out in the fresh air and obviously the garden is the most common place to achieve this. After a wet and gloomy winter in Kingswinford, the garden will likely be a bit too muddy to walk on, so the installation of a brand new patio could be the easiest solution to make the garden usable. If you've already got a patio but it is overrun with weeds and out of level you might be contemplating having a new one laid down or perhaps just lifting and re-laying the existing one if the slabs are still okay.

Whilst a small patio project might be something you could complete by yourself if you are keen on that type of undertaking, it is most likely that you will want to get a professional Kingswinford patio layer to handle the job on your behalf, especially for bigger and more complex patios. It is not merely the installing of your garden patio that you should think about but also the removing and disposal of the waste materials plus the introduction of required patio products.

Planning The Project: You need to confer with your patio layer concerning specific things which must be decided during the planning stage, for instance: what is the perfect location for your patio, does the area need levelling, are there any obstacles in the way (manholes, trees etc), do you need it to slope away from the house, the measuring the area to be patioed, what is the patioed area going to be used for, how easy will it be to access the patio, what patio materials you are using along with other issues which your Kingswinford patio specialist will highlight.

Patio Builders in Kingswinford

Preparing the Area: This phase of the patio project will involve the removing and disposal of surrounding materials and unwanted paving waste, removal of topsoil to get down to the more stable sub-soil, introduction of a hardcore material or sub-base and the subsequent tamping and levelling of this material, covering using a bedding material for instance sharp sand.

The Laying of the Paving: When the area has all been prepared the patio builder will commence installing the patio slabs, how this stage proceeds will depend upon the exact materials you decided on, and will be fairly uncomplicated so long as the ground preparation was carried out properly and the base is level and stable.

Patio Edging Kingswinford: Dependant upon the style and layout of the patio, you may be able to incorporate a smart edging which will really finish the job off nicely. There are numerous kinds of edgings for patios, although they'll not all be appropriate for your specific patio finish, so make sure you choose the right product if you opt to go with an edging. You could use a low brick wall edging, a contoured stone edging, a coping stone edging, a kerbstone edging or a blockwork/brick edging. Check with your Kingswinford patio layer concerning the available options and what they think will best go with your style of patio. They may have photos of patio edgings they've used on previous projects.

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

Paving Slabs/Patio Slabs Kingswinford: Paving or patio slabs are offered in all sizes and shapes, their prices can vary widely too. Which slabs you select for your own patio might be dependant upon current trends, your allowed budget, whether you need to match existing materials and personal preference. The favourite patio slabs used in Kingswinford gardens these days are made of sandstone or concrete and a variety of these can easily be bought in DIY stores and garden centres. Prices (in 2018) start from about £3 up to £15 though they're generally sold in packs or 20 or more.

Hard Landscaping Kingswinford: Patios, pathways and driveways all come under the umbrella term of "hard landscaping" (or "hardscaping"), which quite simply refers to any kind of garden architecture and design made from construction materials, rather than plant based materials like grass, trees and shrubs, which are called "soft landscaping". To a degree garden furniture may also be termed as "hard landscaping". (Tags: Hard Landscaping Kingswinford)

Patio Pressure Cleaning Kingswinford

Patio Cleaning Kingswinford: If you are laying a whole new patio in Kingswinford then you will most likely not be thinking about patio cleaning, although you'll need to be doing this fairly regularly in order to keep your new patio looking in tip top shape. If you happen to be adding onto or extending an existing patio then you may want to have those old patio slabs properly cleaned so that they blend in with the new slabs. Typically the cleaning of patios is done by or chemical cleaning and local Kingswinford patio cleaning contractors will likely provide both services. Professional cleaners use exceptionally high pressure equipment which is far better than the kind of jet washer many people have in their shed.

Patio Re-Grouting Kingswinford

Patio Grouting Kingswinford: With old, pre-existing patios one of the chief issues is with crumbling and cracked grouting or joints. If this is the case with yours then the patio can look messy and doubtless have grass and weeds establishing themselves between the slabs. You could continually use weedkiller to relieve the problem or pour boiling water on the weeds which is a superb way to get rid of weeds without chemicals. Replacing the grouting can be a big job and the hardest job is to get rid of the existing grout which will probably be a sand and cement mix. If the patio slabs are loose and rocking re-doing the joints is pointless since it won't have much effect, and you really need to have the entire patio re-slabbed. If your slabs are relatively stable you can press on and rake out the damaged mortar using a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire area a thorough cleanup when you are done and re-joint the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some are applied using the wet slurry process while others use a dry brush-in system. Most specialist patio layers in Kingswinford will help you with patio repointing, so get hold of one near you to get a quotation.

Resin Bound Driveways and Patios Kingswinford: A relatively recent innovation that is primarily used for driveways in Kingswinford, but can effectively be adapted for patios is the resin bound process. A resin bound surface comprises a combination of resin and aggregate stones which is mixed on-site, cold. The surface is permeable, allowing water to easily pass through it, reducing the surface water issues that occasionally occur with paving slabs. Resin bound patios are also available in a variety of colours, slip resistant, long lasting, attractive, relatively maintenance free, colour fast, weed resistant, hardwearing and UV stable, they are additionally incredibly versatile and can easily incorporate bespoke logos and designs, making them ideal for commercial as well as private use.

Artificial Lawns Kingswinford

Artificial Lawns Kingswinford: Something that you may wish to look at rather than a patio is artificial grass, which is similarly long lasting and low maintenance but can be done a good deal more cheaply than a stone patio and with less mess and disruption. Artificial grass looks the same as genuine grass, both close up and from a distance, but it doesn't grow and never needs mowing. If you are looking for a more affordable solution for your outside space in Kingswinford, then artificial grass might be just the perfect alternative for you. Too much concrete and stone can look very dull your garden area, the natural green colour of artificial grass is easier on the eye and more calming. The cost of installing artificial grass in Kingswinford is approximately the same as the cheapest quality paving but less than half the price of higher end paving slabs.
