What materials can a patio be built from?
Patios are constructed out of an array of materials. Depending on your budget, the look that you are after to suit your home in Bundaberg, the durability and the use, your choices include but are not limited to:
beautiful, timeless look. Can be more prone to erosion from water deterioration, therefore discuss with your expert landscaper what flagstone for your patio would mean for your budget and long term use of your patio
Clay brick Patio
a common and versatile material for patios. Homeowners love how many options there are with colour, style, shape. Can even use reclaimed bricks for a greener approach!
the classic Queenslander patio look
probably the most common of patio materials these days, patio pavers are popular for good reason!
Pavers are durable, come in heaps of different materials (stone, concrete, clay, plastics) and are less prone to colour fading over time (especially stone and concrete pavers).
most cost effective patio material is concrete. When installed correctly by a professional landscaper, concrete patios will last ages.
Concrete patios require proper drainage to be installed, the level is really important here to ensure rainwater doesn’t pool in any ones spot and increase rate of deterioration.
Looking for a quick and easy installation of your patio: gravel could be your top choice!
Choices include: river rock or crushed stone. Drainage is not as much of an issue with gravel compared to concrete patios, this could be an important factor considering the wet season in Bundaberg!
With the better drainage also comes a con of less versatile with outdoor furniture due to the nature of the pebbles moving. Cleaning is also trickier than concrete!
You may need to consider the roofing for your patio, with all those beautiful seats, that epic BBQ, you’ll want to protect them from the elements.
