The installation process of concrete patios is relatively easy, and no engineering expertise is needed. You begin by leveling the ground where the concrete patio will be installed. Leveling should be done to the desired level, and you should factor in the patio’s thickness when leveling the ground. Patios aren’t usually more than 4 inches thick. The installed patio should be easy to step on and it shouldn’t create an unsafe situation. The concrete patio should effectively drain off any rainwater from its surface.
You should plan the patio’s design and look before any work is done. Plans to get colors, picks, imprints as well as other design arrangements should be made before any concrete work is started. You can do the job by yourself if you are confident about your DIY skills. However, when an expert contractor can deliver a more stunning job of laying concrete patios, it really can be considered a work of art that is hard to obtain with inexperience.
The formation of your patio’s sides requires formwork. This has to be done before you pour concrete. You may require joints of lengths of around 10 to 15 feet for patios of long lengths. The surface of the patio may develop cracks as the concrete expands.
Let the concrete cure for several days once you are done laying the designs and colors on your patio. You should leave it for around a week before you allow any foot traffic. Then, you can go ahead and paint it. You can also extend your patio’s life by sealing it using proper sealers.
