Project Description

Patio Renovation: Saffron Walden, Essex

Here’s a quick case study about a Patio Renovation in Saffron Walden that saved one of our customers around £9000 – instead of having a new patio, we were able to renovate their existing patio.

Quite often we look at replacing a patio for a customer, but sometimes its quite feasible and certainly more economical to renovate the existing one.

The most common complaints about paving and patios are:

  • Dirty, mossy or green with algae – so it spoils the look of your garden
  • It’s slippery – which could cause a fall by you, your family or friends
  • It has weeds growing on it – which is time consuming to remove them
  • The slabs are loose – meaning you could trip over a loose slab

Firstly, we check if the paving slabs have been properly laid and retained, if not, we recommend a course of action to correct that, because otherwise no matter how clean and neat it looks, it will always be a problem.

Assuming your patio was well installed, the next thing to go is the pointing between the slabs; this allows weeds to grow and that will lift the slabs causing them to rock, which can be dangerous.

Here is an example of a patio we renovated recently in Saffron Walden

The program of work was to:

  • Jet wash all the paving thoroughly
  • Clean out the existing cement based pointing
  • Relay any patio slabs that were loose
  • Fill the gaps and voids
  • Point the paving with an epoxy wet applied grout
“We were absolutely thrilled with the result and it looks and feels like a brand new patio, but for a fraction the cost. Great work!”

The customer saved around £9000 having a Patio Renovation, compared to having a new patio installed.
