With any patio installation, drainage is an important consideration so there is a requirement to consider the run off area and any drainage gulley's that may be required. Standing water on a patio area can become hazardous, particularly if it freezes.

Good attention to detail, hard working and professional throughout. Fair price agreed with Tom, who was also a pleasure to deal with. I would definitely recommend and would use again

Tom and the team did a great job at a good price. They were very quick to do the fence repair and it was completed to a very high standard. I was so pleased I got them back a week later to replace more panels.

We contacted Chelmsford Fencing last Wed as during high winds it took posts and panels down, they were very quick with turning up at my address, they gave me 3 quotes and they turned up on Mon 20th Jan to fit new fencing. I'm really impressed with every aspect of the job that was done, I'd happily recommend or use them again

Everything You Need to Know

Here are some things to consider when choosing a patio:

Budget

The materials you want and the finishing details will influence the price as well of course will the size of the patio.

Generally speaking we work on an installation price in m2 of coverage. Then details such as edging, steps, pergola's and retaining walls will have an additional impact.

Location

The location of your patio will be determined by access, where the sun shines, privacy and the list goes on. Naturally a pathway can be built if required, otherwise your lawn will bear the brunt of endless trip to and fro.

It's a good idea to stake out the location and observe how elements such as sunshine and leaves will affect it.

Installation Disruption

Building a patio means getting adequate access and the inevitable disruption that installing a patio will cause. Naturally every effort will be made to ensure your garden is as undisturbed as possible, but if there are any issues we shall advise you at all times.

Lighting

If your patio will be adjacent to your property, wall mounted lighting can be can obvious choice. However, additional permanent outdoor lighting may be required. If this is mains powered, we will need to consider cabling which should be professionally connected and commissioned. 

Underground Utilities

Prior to installing your patio, be aware of any underground utilities that include gas, electricity and drainage. Any access to these once under your patio will cause disruption.

Frequently Asked Questions

When can I use  my patio?

Usually we recommend waiting up to 24 hours before using your patio although it can often be used immediately after installation.

If you need to wait any longer, we'll let you know...

How long will my new patio take to install?

Every patio can vary, but an averaged sized patio will take 3-4 days.

When we quote the work we will give an indication of job duration. 

From time to time adverse weather conditions and factors outside of our control may delay the job, but we will always keep you informed throughout.

When is the best time of year to install a patio?

A patio can be installed at any time of year.

However, while many people consider a patio in spring, autumn or winter is often the best time of year to install a patio as the garden is not in as much use so disruption is kept to a minimum.

Do I need planning permission for a patio?

There are no restrictions in covering your land with hard surfaces at or near ground level at the rear of the property.

There are exceptions for listed buildings that always require permission and those that include significant earthworks (e.g. embankments or terracing).

However, at the front of your house:

  1. You will not need planning permission if a new or replacement driveway of any size uses permeable (porous) surfacing which allows water to drain through.
  2. Impermeable surfaces over 5m2 that do not allow water run off to permeable areas.
