Patio Layers Sittingbourne

Sittingbourne Patio Layers (ME9): The minute springtime appears each year many of us dream of spending a lot more time out in the fresh air and of course the garden (for those that have one) is the most common place for that to happen. After a gloomy and wet winter in Sittingbourne, the garden might be just a muddy mess, so putting down a splendid new patio would be the obvious solution to this issue. If you've already got a patio but it is overgrown with weeds and uneven you may very well be thinking about having a new one built or perhaps getting the existing one re-laid if the paving slabs are still sound and in good condition.

Although a modest patio assignment might well be something you could attempt on your own if you're used to this kind of work, it is most likely that you will want to employ the services of a skilled Sittingbourne patio layer to complete the job on your behalf, especially for complex patios. It is not only the laying of your garden patio you have to take into account but also the removal and disposal of the resulting waste and the introduction of the required patio materials.

A bonus of having a professional patio installer handy, is that you can get advice and tips about what is doable in respect of your garden layout and available space. They should also be able to offer guidance on the appropriate materials to do the job. Ask if you can see pictures of patios they have worked on in Sittingbourne, this will give you an insight into what's viable in your back garden and what it could look like when it's done.

Before work commences, you'll need to talk a few things over with the patio installer. This would be thought of as the project planning stage and is important if the completed patio is to be what you wanted. This planning conversation should involve such aspects as the preferred location for your patio, what sort of slabs are to be used, are there any drains or trees in the way, does the site need levelling, and where can a skip be positioned for the removal of waste.

Correctly preparing the area where the patio is to be situated is important if the finished result is to be of acceptable quality. Such preparation should include digging out and removing soil to an appropriate level, barrowing on a layer of hardcore, compacting this down with a wacker and spreading on a final 25mm layer of sharp sand.

Laying the Paving: As soon as you have got a solid and level foundation laid, the patio specialist is able to get on with the laying of the slabs. Provided the preparation of the ground has been properly done, this next phase of the project is likely to be relatively easy and the patio you envisioned will rapidly begin to take shape and you should soon have a wonderful garden space where you will be able to entertain or relax

Patio Edgings Sittingbourne: Although it will depend on the planned layout and style of your patio, you might be able to feature an edging which really finishes a patio off nicely. You can buy several kinds of edgings for patios, although they'll not all be appropriate for your specific patio finish, so make sure you choose carefully if you want to go for an edging. You could have a brick/blockwork edging, a contoured stone edging, a coping stone edging, a kerbstone edging or a short brick wall edging. Talk to your Sittingbourne patio installer about the available options and find out what they think will go best with your patio. They may have photos of patio edgings they have used on other projects.

Materials Used for Paving: There are a broad selection of materials that you can use for building patios, among the most widely used are: composite tiles, gravel, concrete, asphalt, bricks, slabs, granite, setts, slate, cobbles, limestone, sandstone and blocks.

Driveways Sittingbourne: At the same time as you're getting a nice new patio laid you may also want to upgrade your driveway too. Many patio builders in Sittingbourne will also handle this task for you, and it may be advantageous to get it done at the same time so you only generate one lot of mess and can use just one skip for the waste removal. This of course will depend upon your budget and whether or not it will stretch to this additional work, but it is certainly worth thinking about.

Patio Jet Washing Sittingbourne

Patio Cleaning Sittingbourne: If you're building an entire new patio in Sittingbourne then you will probably not be concerned about patio cleaning, although you will need to be doing this regularly so as to keep your new patio looking in the best possible shape. If you are adding to or extending an existing patio then you may want to get those previously laid patio slabs properly cleaned so that they match the newly laid slabs as closely as possible. Mostly patio cleaning is done by high-pressure water jetting or chemical cleaning and most local Sittingbourne patio cleaning companies will probably offer both of those services. Professionals use exceptionally high pressure equipment which is far better than the type of jet washer that many people have in their garage.

Patio Grouting Sittingbourne

Patio Grouting Sittingbourne: With existing patios one of the main problems is with crumbling joints or grouting. If this occurs the patio area can look untidy and will doubtless have grass and weeds establishing themselves between the slabs. You could continually use weedkiller to relieve the annoying problem or saturate the weeds with boiling water which is an outstanding non-chemical technique to get rid of weeds. Replacing the grouting can be a tricky job and the hardest thing is to rake out the existing grout which is most likely a cement and sand mix. If the slabs are loose and unstable replacing the joints is pointless as it is unlikely to solve the problem, and you actually need to have the entire patio re-slabbed. If your slabs are relatively firm you can go ahead and hook out the damaged mortar with a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or better still a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire patio a really good cleanup once you're done and re-grout the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some are applied using the wet slurry approach while others use a dry brush-in technique. Most professional patio layers in Sittingbourne will gladly help you with patio repointing, so contact one near you for an estimate.

Resin Bound Driveways and Patios Sittingbourne: A more modern invention which is mostly used for driveways in Sittingbourne, but can easily be adapted for patios is the resin bound system. A resin bound surface comprises a combination of resin and aggregate stones which can be mixed on-site, cold. The finished surface is permeable, permitting water to pass easily through it, reducing most of the surface water problems that can occasionally arise with paved patios. Resin bound patios and driveways are also easy to maintain, long lasting, UV stable, available in different colours, attractive, non-slip, weed resistant, durable and colour fast, they are in addition highly adaptable and can readily incorporate bespoke logos and designs, making them great for business as well as home use.

Sittingbourne Patios - Issues: All through this site I have addressed many of the issues that can occur with an old patio, but to review, here are the main problems that are likely to arise with a patio: collapsed patio edgings, cracked or damaged patio slabs, stained patio slabs, standing water, sunken patio slabs, dirty patio slabs, trip hazards, infestation by weeds, slabs which have become loose or unstable, slabs covered in moss and lichen.

How to Lay a Patio

Patio Sealing Sittingbourne: Applying sealant is a great way to preserve your path, driveway, paved area or patio in Sittingbourne and can be especially effective for areas of block paving where the sand can easily be eroded from the joints whilst cleaning. Sealing helps prevent this irritating sand loss which is a regular problem when jet washing in particular. This is not the only benefit of sealing which will also lengthen the lifespan of your driveway or patio, prevent staining, enhance the look and colour of your paving slabs or blocks, reduce the need for future repairs, make the area quicker and easier to clean and restrict moss, weed and grass growth. Patio and pavement sealers are waterproof and shouldn't peel or blister, various products are available on the market for different materials including imprinted concrete sealers, natural stone sealants, tarmac sealers and block paving sealers.

Artificial Lawns Sittingbourne

Artificial Grass Sittingbourne: Something that you may wish to consider instead of a patio is artificial grass, which is similarly long lasting and low maintenance but can be installed a good deal more cheaply than a patio and with less mess. Artificial grass looks the same as real grass, both from a distance and close up, but it doesn't grow and never needs mowing. If you're on the lookout for a cost effective solution for your outside space in Sittingbourne, then artificial grass may just be the answer for you. Too much concrete and stone can look very drab your garden area, the green colour of artificial grass is more soothing and easier on the eye. The cost of installing artificial grass in Sittingbourne is roughly the same as doing it with the cheapest quality paving slabs but less than half the price of higher end patio slabs.
