Patio help

Is anyone in the Guildford area who has a patio business willing to offer me any advice regarding an installation i completed in 2019? long story short is that the customer has complained about some pooling in two small areas of the patio which i have offered to fix, but since then and after completion is now adding lots of other changes, No complaints were made in the first 6 months until June 2020. Essentially i would welcome some quotes from anyone who is prepared to relay the patio as the customer has come back with sums which are seriously high. I understand i have the right of repair under the CRA but ideally need a barometer from other parties who could complete the work. Its approx 55sqm on a relatively flat site in Guildford. Regards Simon

  • A proper relay of a patio is more expensive than the initial install. The slabs are the cheap bit- the labour is the expensive bit, and even then the slabs may not be salvageable if you did a good enough job of laying it in the first place!

    Personally it sounds like a tricky customer trying it on. I'd tell them to swivel (politely). How bad is the pooling and what kind of stone is it? Even a tarmac road pools, and unless it's polished dead flat limestone then some slight pooling is part and parcel of a patio. Obviously an inch deep is something else.

     

    Best place to ask for a professional opinion would be the paving expert forum.
