But we can also transform your outdoor space. As the weather is heating up for a rare hot summer, you might be thinking about brightening up your patio area, by laying decorative paving tiles. But this is not as easy as it might seem. As a result, we have produced this guide, to show what we can offer, as a professional service.
Laying decorative paving tiles
Decorative paving tiles can be used to create a stunning patio or outdoor seating area. But to get the effect you need, and the professional quality finish, you need to hire a professional team. That’s because, there are a number of steps, that require a trained eye.
Here at Gilston Building Services, we will begin by creating a sturdy sub base on which to build the patio or seating area. This is an important step that can often be forgotten. But it will make all the difference to the longevity of the patio, and the quality of the finished product. It also provides another opportunity to measure out the space, and spot any potential issues before they arise.
We will then make sure to lay the first tile correctly, after fully measuring out the space available, and making sure all the tiles will be evenly spaced.
Considerations for laying decorative paving tiles
While we take on the manual labour, there are some things you will need to consider before we begin. This includes:
- the desired size and shape of the patio area
- the desired space for the patio area to fit into- e.g.Do you want it to be in the sun or the shade? Connected to the house, or further out?
- the layout pattern for the paving tiles
