It is not only the installing of your garden patio that you ought to look at but the removal and disposal of the resulting waste and the introduction of required patio products. You should keep in mind that laying patios can be back-breaking work, especially if the old slabs are fixed with concrete.

Properly preparing the area where your patio is to be located is very important if the resulting patio is to be satisfactory. This is the step that will comprise excavating and removing soil to an appropriate level, barrowing on a layer of hardcore, compacting this using a wacker and finally spreading on a 25mm covering of sharp sand or similar.

Laying the Paving: When everything has been prepared the patio contractor will start installing the slabs, precisely how this level proceeds depends upon the type of material you've chosen, and might be comparatively straightforward if the ground preparation was executed correctly and the final base is sound and flat.

Materials Used for Patios: There are a broad selection of materials that may be used for building a garden patio, amongst the most popular are: sandstone, cobbles, composite tiles, granite, gravel, asphalt, slate, concrete, bricks, slabs, limestone, setts and blocks.

Paving Slabs/Patio Slabs Rustington: As would be expected, patio slabs come in many different sizes and at varying price points. Considerations like your planned budget, the need to match existing materials, personal taste and current trends will affect the type of slabs that you choose. Nowadays, most people in Rustington give preference to concrete or sandstone paving slabs, seeing as these are widely available in DIY stores and garden centres, and can be conveniently delivered. Patio slab prices (in 2020) start from about three to fifteen pounds each though they can be available in bulk packs of twenty or more. Typical sizes are: 300mm x 300mm, 450mm x 450mm and 600mm x 600mm, the thicknesses vary from 22-38mm.

Driveway Installation Rustington: In addition to a patio, you may also wish to get a brand new driveway installed, or perhaps your current drive renewed.

Patio Cleaning Rustington

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Rustington: You'll probably not currently be thinking about patio cleaning if you're only now in the process of installing a new garden patio, however, in the future, if you intend to keep your patio in great shape, you will have to be cleaning it pretty regularly. Many householders in Rustington find that their existing patio areas are not big enough and want to extend them. If this applies to you, then you will need to clean the pre-existing slabs so that they match the new ones. Normally the cleaning of patios is achieved by high-pressure water jetting or chemical cleaning and local Rustington patio cleaning contractors will probably offer both of these services. Professionals use exceptionally high pressure equipment which is far better than the sort of jet washer that some people have in their shed.

Patio Re-Grouting Rustington

Patio Grouting Rustington: Crumbling joints or grouting is one of the main issues with old, pre-existing patios. If this occurs the patio area may look a mess and will doubtless have grass and weeds sprouting up in between the slabs. You can alleviate this problem by using a decent weedkiller or even by pouring boiling water on the weeds which is a very good, but largely unknown, technique to get rid of weeds without using chemicals in this situation. Replacing the grouting is not simple and the hardest job is to rake out the old grout which will probably be a sand and cement mortar. If your paving slabs are loose and unstable there is little point repairing the joints because it won't make much difference, and you need to to have the whole thing re-slabbed. If you ascertain that the slabs of your patio area are properly stable and firm, the next step is going to be to chip out the old cement mortar using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. When you have finished, you will need to give the entire area a good clean and carry out the re-grouting with a resin or polymeric grout. Some are applied using the wet slurry method while others use a dry brush-in system. (Tags: Grouting Patios Rustington, Patio Grouting Rustington, Patio Re-Grouting Rustington)
