A patio is a truly great addition to your home and garden.
They offer a relatively low maintenance finish, can work with any colour scheme and add value to your home !
If you simply want the aesthetic appeal, allure, and enjoyable outdoor living, the patio is going to provide you much greater variety and style, than any form of decking is going to provide outside of the home.
With a patio, you have unlimited options in terms of material finish, design, aesthetics, and the overall elemental work which is going to be completed. When used in conjunction with decorative gravel the results are stunning. Try a contrasting gravel to really see your patio come alive.
- we are often asked the question.. Patio or decking ?
- Patios can withstand heavy weight limits. A well-installed patio is more suitable for larger gatherings, or instances where homeowners plan on placing larger items outside vs Decking
- Patios increase usable outdoor space, and create an elegant appeal given their luxurious finishes/details, and ability to customise the space.
One of the most important aspects of a good patio is the foundations its laid on. We cannot stress this enough !
All too often we arrive to see a new customer whos patio is a mess after being laid by another contractor incorrectly. It may have already sunk or is puddling badly in the rain. Sadly this is all too common as a cheap job often ends up costing more in the long run.
Correctly compacted hardcore foundations, a proper drainage fall and correct pointing is critical. Yes it will cost you more but only need doing once !
