Summerhill Patios Wickford Essex

A patio is like a new outdoor room

A patio adds an extra zone to your back garden or yard, making it a multi-purpose area. People often treat it as an extension to their homes, like an outdoor room in summer months. Your new patio doubles up as an annex to your kitchen or living room and acts as an extremely flexible space.

When paired with comfy patio furniture, it becomes your unwinding and entertainment area too.

An attractive and well-built patio undoubtedly adds value to your home without having to get a second mortgage.

Patio construction methods

The three most popular methods of constructing a patio area are:

  • Block paving on an existing level base
  • Concrete base with/without attractive paving slabs
  • Decking

Very often it’s the topology of your site that is the determining factor as regards which approach will give the best results. Our experts will quickly advise you of the pros and cons of each option for your own location.

A good quality patio is the sensible choice

The best patios are made from good quality materials. That superior level of patio build is less prone to cracking and damage than a cheaper alternative. What you certainly do not want are cracks and pitting appearing in a short few years. Remember that a good quality patio construction should last well in excess of 40 years. If you do it right from the outset, then those years should be trouble free.

We mentioned that a patio adds value to your home. That is only true if it looks great. An ugly eyesore actually reduces your home’s resale value and can be quite off-putting for potential purchasers.
