"What is my budget?" Some homeowners feel that this is a loaded question, but it is one that a good contractor will ask and one that needs to be addressed. It should be asked, not to prequalify you as a potential customer or to run the price up, but to bring the project into perspective. As a homeowner, you should not be afraid to tell your contractor your budget. A good contractor’s price is his price and he will design to your budget.
Installing a patio is expensive but it is worth spending as much as you can afford as the patio is such an important part of the garden. The garden should be viewed as an outdoor room and if you are prepared to spend a little extra on getting it right it will be useable for most of the year. Allow around £120 per square metre as an all-in cost to get a contractor to lay your patio.
Due to the fact a patio will be usually situated in close proximity to the house, the terrace styles should either enhance or contrast the existing material from the house in type and colour. Some concrete patios are left in the authentic grey color, although artificial additives are often used to change the color of the concrete to virtually any colour sought after. Many different styles for sculpting the sides and surface of fresh cement are also obtainable, to permit a for sturdy concrete patio and to appear and feel like individual tiles or stones.
