You’ll want to be prepared for the installation process if you are considering it. You know that a good design is essential for your desired results, and you don’t want to forget anything. You want to be prepared for the installation process.

You are covered!

This article will discuss what to expect from the patio installation process (starting from the design phase and continuing through to the actual installation). We have always strived to keep you informed and educated about the patio installation process so you can make smart decisions. We understand that building a patio is a major undertaking. We want to make sure you feel comfortable during the entire patio design and construction process.

What to expect when having a patio built

Island Driveways & Patios, Inc will walk you through the process, but other landscaping companies may have a different approach. It is important to choose a landscaping company that will take the process very seriously and be thorough in every step.

The Start of Good Design

Your patio design will be crucial to the final result. You can get a good idea of what your finished patio will look. No surprises should occur.

Design ensures that the space is used to the fullest and everything works as it should.

We take our design process very seriously, so we have several steps. Here’s what you can expect.

Initial Consultation

We will begin the process of Patio Design And Installation in Patchogue with a consultation to get your ideas. Whether you have specific concepts in mind or need guidance, our team is dedicated to creating a patio space that suits your preferences and complements your home.

You can expect to discuss your ideas and thoughts for your project during the first consultation. We will discuss your project in more detail when we get to the next step.

These ideas will be the basis of your initial patio design. You can share pictures of projects that you enjoy. You can also see some of our past projects to narrow down your goals.

It is important to have all decision makers in the family present at the first consultation. This is often overlooked. It is important that all parties are on the same page as we discuss ideas and create an initial plan. We’ve seen that when we meet with only one decision maker and present a design to the other, they reject it. It’s a waste of time to send us back to the drawing boards. We find it more efficient to have all decision-makers present.

Important patio design considerations

This design process should be filled with many details. The majority of clients that we work with want to create an outdoor living space, so considerations go beyond the patio.

Here are some of the considerations you will need to make during your design process.

  • Are you planning to have meals outdoors? If so, how much space do you require for seating?
  • Do you want to eat outside?
  • Will you include a pool in the design of your extended patio?
  • Imagine yourself relaxing on your patio in front of an outdoor fireplace?
  • What type and how much furniture would you like to include (and where)
  • Do you need extra seating or built-in seats for large parties?
    You may have a sloped yard, which could mean you have multiple levels of patio.

Follow-Up Meeting

This initial consultation provides us with the information needed to create a concept design.

Then, we will share this information at a subsequent meeting.

We will ask you some important questions about your design during the second meeting. We’ll go through each item item by item to find out what you like, and what you would change. Now is the time to focus on the details and work out the design elements you would like to see in your finished product.

Final Design

We’ve now narrowed it down to exactly what you want. We will sit down and discuss the final design with you during this phase. This will include the prices and your budget. We may divide the project into phases if you have more than you can afford. We will start with the patio, but if we are adding other features to it, we can phase them out over time.

The phasing process is an important part of the design because you need to plan even if certain elements are not built from the start. This will save you headaches and extra costs in the future.
If you plan to add a pavilion to your patio later, it’s best to install the footers when you have the patio built. Otherwise, you will have to dig them up later.

Patio Construction Process

After the design has been finalized, you can begin patio construction.

For this phase to be completed properly, there are many things that need to be taken into consideration. These can lead to future patio issues such as leaning edges, poor drainage or sinking pavers if they are not done correctly.

Proper installation is key to a successful patio construction. The base must be properly installed. To avoid future problems, it is important to consider drainage and grading.

The correct amount of filling is important for patio construction. The stone is then graded, and finally compacted.

Natural stone is the material of choice for Island Driveways & Patios, Inc when it comes to patio construction.

We believe that it is the best choice for many reasons. It is extremely durable, has a classic and timeless look, and is beautiful. The natural landscape of Patchogue is also “perfect” for this stone. There are many landscaping companies who are not comfortable installing natural stone, as it is more difficult.

We think it is worth working with an organization that can provide you with the best.

Get ready for your patio dreams to come true

We know you want to be sure that you don’t miss any details as you start the process of designing and installing your patio. This should give you a good idea of the process so you’re ready to watch your patio come together.

Remember that you’re not alone. You’ll make the best decisions for your outdoor living space if you have the right landscape designer/builder on your side.

You will not be disappointed with the space you end up having, and you will spend all your time in it enjoying it.
