Patios Madeley

Madeley Patio Layers (TF7): As soon as the spring appears each year many of us have thoughts about spending more time out in the fresh air and of course the garden (for those who have one) is the most obvious place for that to happen. After a long and damp winter in Madeley, your garden is most likely to be a bit of a quagmire, so the installation of a nice new patio would be the obvious solution to this setback. If you do currently have a patio but it's starting to get overrun with weeds and uneven you could possibly be contemplating getting a new one or perhaps just lifting up and relaying the existing one if the paving slabs are still sound.

Though a smaller patio assignment is perhaps something that you could do by yourself if you are used to this sort of undertaking, its likely that you'll want to find a competent Madeley patio layer to carry out the project on your behalf, especially for bigger and more complicated patios. It isn't merely the installation of your garden patio you must think about but the removal and disposal of the resulting waste and the introduction of the new patio supplies. You should also keep in mind that building patios is fairly heavy work, especially if your existing slabs were concreted in position. A large patio slab with a chunk of concrete on is going to be rather weighty, so at least ask someone to help you lift these, should you opt to tackle it yourself.

A knowledgeable Madeley patio contractor can advise you on what you may and may not have, recommend and order the most appropriate materials and come up with a superb patio design for you to suit your available area.

From this portfolio you might be able to get a notion of just what your patio project will be like when its complete, this will aid you to pick your preferred materials and design.

The Planning of Your Project: You will need to speak to your patio expert regarding specific factors that must be decided in the planning stage, like: what patio materials you are using, access to the patio, does the area need levelling out, what is your patioed area going to be used for, are there any obstacles in the way that you need to consider such as (trees, drains etc), the measuring the area to be patioed, what's the perfect position for your patio, do you require it to slope away from buildings along with other criteria which your Madeley patio expert will highlight.

Getting the Area Ready: This stage of the patio project will include the removing and disposal of surface debris and any existing paving waste, extraction of topsoil to get down to the more stable sub-soil, spreading of a hardcore or sub-base and the resulting levelling and tamping of this material, overlaying with a bedding layer such as sharp sand.

Laying the Paving: When everything has been prepared the patio specialist will start putting down the slabs, how this level proceeds will depend upon the type of material you have chosen, and will be fairly uncomplicated if the ground preparation was done properly and the resulting base is flat and sound.

Patio Edgings Madeley: Depending on the layout and style of the patio, you might possibly be able to incorporate a stylish edging which really gives a patio that professional finish. You can find numerous types of edgings for patios, although they will not all be suited to your particular patio finish, so be sure to choose the right product if you opt to go for an edging. You could use a blockwork/brick edging, a contoured stone edging, a kerbstone edging, a low brick wall edging or a coping stone edging. Talk to your Madeley patio layer regarding the options and what they consider will best go with your patio. They will probably have pictures of patio edgings they have used on other projects.

Materials for Paving: There are a vast assortment of materials that may be used for building patios, amongst the most popular are: composite tiles, setts, slabs, asphalt, gravel, granite, slate, concrete, cobbles, limestone, sandstone, bricks and blocks.

Paving Slabs/Patio Slabs Madeley: Patio slabs or paving slabs are available in all manner of shapes and sizes, their prices can differ widely too. Which sort of slabs you select for your own patio may be based on your planned budget, whether you need to match existing materials, current fashions and personal preference. The favourite patio slabs used in Madeley gardens today are manufactured from concrete or sandstone and these can easily be bought in DIY merchants and garden centres. Prices (at the time of writing) start at around £3 up to £15 although they are often sold in bulk packs of twenty or more. Typical sizes are: 300x300mm, 450x450mm and 600x600mm, the thickness varies from 22-38mm.

Patio Grouting Madeley

Patio Grouting Madeley: With existing patios one of the key problems is with cracked joints or grouting. If this occurs the patio may look messy and no doubt have grass and weeds sprouting up in between the slabs. You can use weedkiller to relieve the annoying problem or pour boiling water on the weeds which is a fantastic non-chemical technique to eliminate weeds. Re-doing the grouting isn't easy and the hardest job is to get rid of the old grout which is most likely to be a sand and cement mortar. If your patio slabs are loose and moving it is pointless re-doing the joints since it won't have much effect, and you actually need to have the entire thing re-done. If the slabs are relatively stable and firm you can press on and hook out the damaged mortar with a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade. Give the whole patio a good cleanup when you are 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 process. (Tags: Patio Grouting Madeley, Patio Re-Grouting Madeley)

Resin Bound Patios and Driveways Madeley: A more recent innovation that is in the main used for driveways in Madeley, but can easily be adapted for patios is the resin bound process. A resin bound surface comprises a combination of aggregate stones and resin which is mixed on-site, cold. The resulting surface is permeable, allowing rain water to pass easily through it, avoiding the flooding issues that sometimes occur with paving slabs. Resin bound patios are also colour fast, UV stable, long lasting, attractive, durable, available in lots of colours, easy to maintain, weed resistant and slip resistant, they are furthermore extremely adaptable and can incorporate bespoke designs and logos, making them suitable for business as well as residential use.

Patio Furniture Madeley: After you've finished your patio you'll need to choose some comfortable patio furniture to complete your newly created outdoor space. There is lots to think about when picking patio furniture and you need to put as much thought into this decision as you would buying furniture for the interior of your home. Throughout the summer months you'll likely spend more time relaxing on your patio as you do inside, so doing this right is important. Don't merely squeeze in as much furniture as you can, you should use the space wisely. It is a neat idea to continue your colour scheme from the interior to the exterior of the house, this helps to preserve the natural flow of the space.

Artificial Lawns Madeley

Artificial Grass Madeley: Another option which you might want to look at instead of a patio is artificial grass, which is similarly long lasting and low maintenance and can be done considerably more cheaply than a stone patio and with less mess and disruption. Artificial grass looks similar to genuine grass, both close up and from a distance, but it never needs mowing and doesn't grow. If you are in need of a more economical solution for your precious garden space in Madeley, then artificial grass may just be the perfect alternative for you. An excessive amount of stone and concrete can give a very dull appearance to your garden, the natural green colour of artificial grass is easier on the eye and much more soothing. The cost of installing artificial grass in Madeley is approximately the same as when using the cheapest quality paving slabs but less than half the cost of high end patio slabs.
