During the first steps of a patio, Indian sandstone, Granite or paved project we will go through the process and desired design and materials we’ll be using new for your new garden patio.
The area for your garden patio design will then be marked out leaving a small margin to make the slab laying process more efficient.
We also make sure that all services including water, telecoms, electricity and gas are pointed out during this early stage.
We are proud to use all of our own plant and machinery here at NB Contracts which makes the excavation process that much easier, we also use licensed landfill sites for the excess old soil and materials, recycling and reusing where we can so no need to hire your own skip or worry about machinery, we’ve got it covered.
When the excavation has been carried out we’ll begin installing any new drainage if required.
The next step involves laying the foundation of your new patio during which we spread a thick, even layer of sub base material. Attention to detail is a must through all stages.
Edge Courses & Kerbs
After we’ve correctly laid your patio sub-base we’ll install any edge courses and kerbs where necessary, installing everything on a solid concrete base. We like to ensure that all lines are straight and precise and our paving experts use backing concrete to support the edge or kerb brickwork and paving.
Before we start laying your new block paving we spread a level layer of course sand over your garden patio sub-base, the key to a perfect laying course is to create as smooth and even surface as possible which will allow our pavers to lay your brickwork, Indian sandstone or granite paved slabs a lot easier and saves us time.
Our professional paving team will lay your patio slabs in the desired design and material as decided on in your initial consultation and preparation stages of the project.
Alignment & Compliance
Once your design has been successfully positioned our team will go about double checking the paving alignment before beginning the cutting in process, during this stage attention to detail is key as you don’t want an uneven design and we don’t cut corners.
Cutting-in is just as important as laying an attractive paving style, depending on the materials you’ve decided on, our bricklayers measure out and cut your paving to fit your patio design.
During the finishing touches we’ll fix any recess trays and gully covers, if required.
When our paving experts have finished cutting-in your patio, a jointing mixture is spread over the paved design, making sure that no joints have been missed is essential, we use EASY joint a trusted all weather paving filler or traditional sand and cement pointing in.
Our team will sweep away any excess jointing sand and your new slab or block paved patio is ready to be used.
If required we use a sealant to finish off and protect your new patio from any accidental staining and all of our patio installations come complete with NB Contracts 5 year guarantee.
We would like to thank the NB Contracts Team for a magnificent job in preparing, laying and finishing the block paving laid to the front, side and rear of our property. Despite some awful weather conditions they were clean and tidy, where possible, and always left the site usable each evening. I would not hesitate to use them for any future work required. The price quoted was the price charged, even with some minor alterations that we requested. Many ThanksPeter & Alison Nellies
