We built a patios on a level surface no matter what materials you end up using. Cracks in concrete, uneven surfaces and pooling water on the patio can all be attributed to an ill prepared sub-base.

But there are differences in how your patio will be built depending on the hardscape material you choose. “It can take four to six weeks from the initial consultation to the finished patio,” says Derek Archer, landscape designer for Brentwood Landscape & Design. Typically, it takes about one week to install a basic patio, but longer for larger, more elaborate designs and to install plantings nearby. Here are some tips for basic patio construction.

Marking The Site

Using stakes and string, the patio will be outlined in the area where it will be built. The stakes are pounded into the ground at the corners of the patio then string is tied to the stakes to show the size and shape you want.

Sometimes builders use a type of eco-friendly spray paint to mark the area in the shape and size of the patio. This method is easier than the stakes and string method and works especially well on curving patios.

Once the patio site is marked, we will excavate the patio’s footprint. For a poured concrete patio, they generally dig down about eight inches allowing for a four-inch thick base and four inches of concrete on top of it.

We will work in sections pushing the concrete into the forms making sure there are no air holes and helping the concrete to settle in the forms. Excess concrete is screed across the surface producing a level area. They then move on to the next section until the entire form is filled in, level and smooth.

After the materials are laid out, we use sand or a fixing material that is poured on to the surface and brushed into the joints between the stones. Using a garden hose, they water-in the loose sand or fixing material to lock-in the stones. Typically, you can walk on the surface of the patio the same day, as there is no wait time for the patio to cure or dry.

Benefits of Adding a Patio to Your Home

1.They increase property value: Patios are one of the best investments you can make to increase your home’s value. They greatly add to your home’s curb appeal and outdoor space’s usability. These are features that buyers look for in a home. The addition of a patio means a more attractive and useful home that has space to enjoy the outdoors, host parties, raise children, and play with pets. A yard with a hardscape element is a huge draw for buyers and can skyrocket the home’s value.

2.They provide space to entertain: Patios are the best addition to a home that regularly entertains guests. Having an outdoor space where people can gather and spend time together is a huge benefit of adding a patio to your home. Patios are a place where you can entertain guests—it’s perfect for sitting outside, taking in the environment, enjoying nice weather, and spending time with loved ones. Even small patios are great for entertaining. You can decorate, invest in patio furniture, and even find a place for a grill so you can host dinners, cookouts, and more.

3.They extend your living space: Patios provide you with extra living space. Even on rainy days or in the cold, you can enjoy your patio if you enclose it. You can also leave it open and let your home extend naturally. Patios act as an extension to whichever room you build it out from. For many homes, this means a bigger kitchen, living room, or even bedroom.

FAQ,S

Over the course of 3 to 5 years; exterior waterproofing materials wear off caused by the ebb and flow of groundwater. Depending on the type of soil, location, and landscape slope (grade); a basement can have longer-lasting exterior waterproofing.
 

The ground carries a lot of moisture. Sealing the crawlspace and installing a liner to cover the ground will reduce the moisture levels in your crawlspace. This will prevent a lot of problems like wood rot, structural issues, mold growth and sagging/hanging insulation.

We would design a drain system that goes around the perimeter of basement that would drain to a sump pump. Next, we would inspect outside of the home to pinpoint any areas of intrusion and develop a plan. Some exterior options would be installing down spout extensions on the gutters to push the water away from the home and foundation. We would also inspect the gutters on the home itself and see if that could be the root of the problem. There are a variety of ways water could enter your home from exterior factors.

Waterproofing a basement in the inside is a very popular option because it is done without major exterior excavation and, in some cases, can be done very quickly and economically.

Waterproofing the basement eliminates many of the health risks associated with leaks, seepage, and water damage within the basement. Mold may grow in less than 48 hours, and if it isn't removed, it can cause a variety of health issues, including allergies, fever, headaches, asthma, and coughing.
