Concrete patios are an exciting addition to a home, and they must be planned and prepared for carefully. For example, it's important to check out local and state building codes to find out if you need a patio building permit. The fully insured and bonded masonry contractors at Rugged Slopes Hawaii in Honolulu, HI, have extensive experience providing concrete patios, as well as rock walls, concrete driveways, and other stone, tile, and concrete structures and services.
Here, they'd like to share three important tips to help you plan for your concrete patio accordingly:
Clarify The Patio Purpose: Decide how you imagine yourself using your patio. Are you going to barbecue or listen to music on it? Depending on how you use your patio, it may need to have extra support in some areas or piping to hold electrical wires. The friendly staff at Rugged Slopes Hawaii will be glad to help you envision and design a custom concrete patio that suits your exact needs.
Choose The Patio Location: Concrete patios should ideally be built on level land that’s well-drained. You may also want to consider the amount of sun and shade in the proposed patio area, which can affect your enjoyment of the area.
Prepare & Pour The Patio Base: When it’s time for the concrete patio base to be prepared and poured, it’s a good idea to rely on the expertise of the skilled staff at Rugged Slopes Hawaii. They will thoroughly clear the area, apply a layer of crushed rock or gravel, dig to the proper depth required, and pour the concrete patio.
