5 Things To Consider Before Installing a Patio During Cold Weather
After talking to your loved ones, you’ve decided that now is the best time to seek a company to install your patio. Now, what do you have to do to prepare?
Below are some questions and considerations to help you prepare the groundwork for installing patios.
Where Should You Install It in Your Backyard?
The perfect place for most people’s patios is right outside the back door, where you can easily access it without getting muddy shoes. However, you don’t have to conform to the status quo! You could install a path that leads to your patio if you’d like it in a shady spot or a pretty area of your yard.
Keep in mind that you need to be aware of utility lines. Be sure to obtain the necessary permits and that your contractor calls Dig Safe before digging.
Drainage and the Ground Beneath
Ideally, your patio should slant slightly away from your home and toward a flower bed or grass. If your landscape design means that’s not possible, you can still find alternative ways to deal with surface water runoff. In this case, you might need to install a drain to avoid your property getting damp.
Should You Seal Your Stone Patio?
Sealing your patio protects it against heat, frost and dirt, helping it last even longer. Keep in mind that you shouldn’t seal it as soon as the project is finished, as it could leave behind salt crystals and a fluffy, white deposit on the surface.
