Truro Patio Layers (TR1): As the spring arrives every year most of you plan to spend a lot more time in the fresh air and obviously the garden (for those that have one) is the most common place for that to happen. After a long and rainy winter in Truro, your garden is likely to be just a muddy mess, so the installation of a fabulous new patio could be the obvious solution to make the garden more functional. If you do already have a patio but it is covered with weeds and uneven you will be thinking about getting a new one put in or perhaps taking up and re-laying the old one if the slabs are still usable.

While a limited patio project is perhaps something that you could do by yourself if you're conversant with this type of undertaking, it is likely that you will have to employ a competent Truro patio layer to carry out the job for you, especially for larger and more complex patios. It isn't just the installation of your garden patio that you have to take into account but also the removal and disposal of the waste matter plus the introduction of new patio products.

Getting the Area Ready: This step of the patio project will involve the extraction and disposal of surrounding debris and any unwanted paving waste, digging up of topsoil to reach the more stable sub-soil, spreading of a hardcore or sub-base and the resulting compacting and levelling of this material, overlaying with a bedding material for instance sharp sand.

The Final Paving: When everything has been got ready the patio builder will start laying the patio slabs, precisely how this process proceeds depends upon the materials you have picked, and might be quite uncomplicated if the ground preparation was done properly and the resulting base is sound and flat.

Materials: You will find a broad range of materials which can be used for building a patio, amongst the most popular are: limestone, asphalt, granite, sandstone, slate, concrete, gravel, bricks, slabs, cobbles, composite blocks, setts and blocks.

You can buy many kinds of edgings for patios, although they won't all be appropriate for your particular patio finish, so make sure you choose the right product if you decide to go for an edging. You could have a short brick wall edging, a wavy stone edging, a kerbstone edging, a brick/blockwork edging or a coping stone edging. Talk to your Truro patio layer concerning the available options and what they believe will look best with your patio. They may have pictures of patio edgings they've used on previous projects.

Hard Landscaping Truro: Patios, pathways and driveways all come under the umbrella term of "hard landscaping" (or occasionally "hardscaping"), which in a nut-shell refers to any kind of garden design and architecture which utilizes construction materials, rather than plant related materials such as shrubs, grass and trees, which are normally referred to as "soft landscaping". In many instances garden furniture is also termed as "hard landscaping". (Tags: Hard Landscaping Truro)

High-Pressure Patio Cleaning Truro

Patio Cleaning Truro: If you are installing a whole new patio in Truro then you'll most likely not immediately be too worried about patio cleaning, though you will need to be doing this regularly so as to keep your new patio in tip top shape. If you are extending or adding onto a pre-existing patio then it might be a good idea to have those previously laid patio slabs cleaned up so that they match as closely as possible to the new patio slabs that are being laid. Most often patio cleaning is achieved by chemical cleaning or high-pressure water jetting and most local Truro patio cleaning firms will most likely provide both of these services.

Patio Re-Grouting Truro

Patio Grouting Truro: With existing patios one of the chief problems is with crumbling grouting or joints. If this is the case with yours then your patio can look very messy and no doubt have grass and weeds sprouting up between the slabs. You can continually use weedkiller to ease this issue or dowse the weeds with boiling water which is a very good way to destroy weeds without chemicals. Repairing the grout can be a big job and the hardest job is to remove the old grout which is most likely a sand and cement mortar. If your patio slabs are loose and unstable there is no point replacing the joints since it will not have much effect, and you need to to get the whole patio re-slabbed. If your slabs are stable you can press on and rake out the damaged mortar using a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade. Give the entire area a thorough cleanup when you are done and re-joint 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 method. Most professional patio layers in Truro will happily help you with patio repointing, so try contacting one near you to get a quotation. (Tags: Patio Grouting Truro, Patio Re-Grouting Truro)
