Patios Ross-on-Wye

Ross-on-Wye Patio Layers (HR9): The moment springtime appears every year most of you have thoughts about spending more time outdoors and obviously the garden (for those that have one) is the most common place for that to occur. After a long and wet winter in Ross-on-Wye, your garden will likely be a bit too muddy to walk on, so putting down a clean new patio is the easiest solution to this problem. If you currently have a patio but it has become overrun with weeds and uneven you might be wondering about getting a new one laid or perhaps just lifting up and relaying the old one if the patio slabs are still okay.

While a modest patio assignment might be something that you could undertake by yourself if you're used to that kind of undertaking, its likely that you will have to hire a competent Ross-on-Wye patio layer to do the job on your behalf, particularly for larger and trickier patios. It is not merely the laying of your garden patio you must look at but also the removing and disposal of the waste plus the introduction of required patio products. You need to bear in mind that installing patios can be quite heavy work, especially if your old slabs were concreted in position. A large sized patio slab with a chunk of concrete on is likely to be extremely heavy, therefore at the very least find someone to help you lift these, if you decide to do-it-yourself.

Project Planning: You should always consult with your patio contractor regarding things that have to be decided in the planning stage, for instance: does the area need levelling out, what's the perfect position for your patio, do you need a gradient away from the property, what materials are to be used, are there any obstacles to consider such as (trees, drains etc), access to the patio, the accurate measuring of the area to be patioed, what is your patioed area to be used for as well as other factors which your Ross-on-Wye patio layer will explain.

Preparation of the Area: This stage of the patio project will involve the removing and disposal of surface debris and any unwanted paving waste, extraction of the topsoil layer to get down to the firmer sub-soil, introduction of a hardcore material or sub-base and the resulting levelling and pressing down of this material, overlaying with a bedding material like sharp sand.

Laying the Paving: When everything is prepared your patio specialist will commence laying the slabs, how this process proceeds will depend upon the materials you opted for, and might be reasonably straightforward if the surface preparation was done correctly and the resulting base is stable and flat.

Patio Edging Ross-on-Wye: Depending on the planned layout and style of your patio, you may be able to include an attractive edging which will really give your patio a nice finish.

You could pick a short brick wall edging, a coping stone edging, a blockwork/brick edging, a rounded kerbstone edging or a contoured stone edging. Check with your Ross-on-Wye patio layer regarding the available options and find out what they believe will look best with your style of patio. They might have photos of patio edgings they have used on past jobs.

Paving Slabs/Patio Slabs Ross-on-Wye: Patio or paving slabs are offered in all sizes and shapes, their prices can differ widely too.

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Ross-on-Wye: If you are putting in a whole new patio in Ross-on-Wye then you will likely not be immediately concerned about patio cleaning, though you'll need to be doing this fairly regularly in order to keep your new patio looking in the best possible condition. If you happen to be adding onto or extending a pre-existing patio area then it might be a good idea to get those old patio slabs cleaned up so that they blend in with the new slabs. Mostly patio cleaning is done by chemical cleaning or jet washing and most local Ross-on-Wye patio cleaning contractors will likely provide both of these services. Professional cleaners use very high pressure equipment which is superior to the sort of jet washer some people have in their shed or garage.
