Before any work starts, you will have to discuss a few things with your patio builder. This would be thought of as the project planning phase and it is crucial if the final patio is going to look as you intended. This preparatory discussion may involve such points as the preferred location for your patio, are there manholes in the way, does the site need levelling, what kind and size of slabs are to be used, and where can a skip be positioned for the removal of waste.

This phase of the patio project will involve the removing and disposal of surface materials and unwanted paving waste, digging up of topsoil to get down to the firmer sub-soil, introduction of a hardcore or sub-base and the subsequent levelling and pressing down of this material, covering with a bedding layer for example sharp sand.

The Laying of the Paving: When everything has been got ready your patio builder will begin installing the slabs, how this level proceeds will depend upon the exact materials you've selected, and will be comparatively uncomplicated as long as the ground preparation was carried out properly and the base is solid and flat.

Patio Edging PaigntonPatio Edgings Paignton: Dependant upon the planned style and layout of your patio, you may possibly be able to include a smart edging which really gives a patio that professional finish. There are several kinds of patio edgings, although they won't all be suitable for your specific patio finish, so be sure to choose the right product if you decide to go for an edging. You could have a brick/blockwork edging, a coping stone edging, a short brick wall edging, a kerbstone edging or a contoured stone edging.

Materials Used for Paving: There's a broad range of materials that you may use for building patios, amongst the most popular are: concrete, composite blocks, limestone, bricks, slate, asphalt, slabs, sandstone, setts, granite, gravel, cobbles and blocks.

Patio Grouting Paignton: With existing patios one of the chief problems is with crumbling joints or grouting. When this occurs your patio may look messy and likely have grass and weeds growing up in between the slabs. You could constantly use weedkiller to alleviate this problem or pour boiling water on the weeds which is a good non-chemical way to destroy weeds. Replacing the grouting is not simple and the hardest job is to remove the old grout which is most likely to be a cement and sand mix. If your slabs are loose and rocking replacing the joints is pointless as it is unlikely to have much effect, and you actually need to get the whole patio re-done. If the slabs are reasonably secure and stable you can hook out the old mortar by utilizing a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire area a really good clean-up once you're finished and re-joint 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 Paignton will happily help you with patio repointing, so get in touch with one near you for an estimate.
