Get your patio ready for summer

It’s not unusual for the summer to cause excitement, and what better way to enjoy it than on your patio.

Get your patio ready for summer. Whether you’re catching up with friends or relaxing with a book during the summer months, a patio can be enjoyed time and time again.

If your patio requires maintenance, or you’re still in the planning stages, it’s easy to get the process started ready for summer.

Does your patio need updating?

There can be many reasons as to why some aren’t happy with the state of their current patio. It may have been damaged or stained over time, or perhaps lacklustre work was carried out the first time around.

You may just need to refurbish or clean part of your patio, but if you’ve had it for several years, then why not update the overall look?

You can speak to a company specialising in patios to see what your options are. Of course, you should ensure that you’re using a reputable company that is both experienced and professional.

Are you looking for a particular layout?

Whether you’re looking to update a current patio, or start from scratch, your final patio layout depends on several factors.

If you’re unsure what will work best with your current aesthetics, then it may help to look online for inspiration. Blogs and picture-based websites such as Pinterest are always a good platform for ideas. We have included a few of our latest works here too which may inspire you!

You can get ideas about your patio style, and decide what else you need, such as garden furniture and barbecues.

If you’re still unsure after looking online then why not speak to a professional to see what other ideas they bring.

What will the patio be used for?

Thinking about how you plan to use the patio is an important factor to consider.

Some may want to use their patio for barbecues and quiet evenings. Other may want to use the space to catch up on the football or other sports.

It’s easy to assume that patios of a certain size will be enough, but it’s worth speaking to an experienced professional to help you ascertain the best approach.

Whether you’re looking to update your current patio or start afresh, then speak to The Home Improvement Project today.

You can be confident that your patio is constructed using high-grade materials, and that it will last you for years to come.

Iron Staining Disclaimer: Rust staining or Iron staining is a natural problem that can occur when specific individual stones within the product that have high iron content are exposed to the environment. This problem is often increased if the site is in an exposed or coastal region. It is not unusual for the problem to take a number of years to be exposed and there is no way of identifying if the aggregate is affected prior to application.

It is not possible to screen the iron content out of the product by using magnets as it is part of the chemical makeup of the aggregate. The aggregates affected by this problem are mostly flint or gravel based type products or aggregates that have usually been quarried from glacial or river deposits. Using Calcined flint aggregates will not eliminate this problem if the raw flint used already has high iron content.

Given that iron staining is a natural occurrence no guarantee can be given or liability accepted for areas affected by iron staining. Since 2016 The Home Improvement Project have only selected aggregates from quarries that have proven records of low iron content. Whilst iron staining can cosmetically spoil the appearance of the affected areas it has no detrimental effect on the render itself.
