Patio Slabs Buying Guide

Here at Sansums, we understand the importance of having an attractive garden or staff recreational area that you are proud to show off to your friends and family, or even potential clients and staff.

However, creating an attractive patio area is only possible if you use the best patio materials such as patio slabs and building aggregates. We stock a huge range of different sized, shaped and coloured patio slabs for you to choose from so that you can create the perfect patio area at your home or business.

Call us today on 01793 536784 and one of our team will be happy to walk you through our range to help you decide. Similarly, take a look at our patio slab buying guide below which takes you through what to look for when purchasing your materials to create your dream patio area for your home or business.

Patio Usage

Taking into account what it is that will actually happen on your patio is very important for when choosing which patio slabs to use. This is because each patio slab that we stock has different features that are not ideal for some usages.

For example, if you are looking to create a patio area that is to be suitable to park vehicles on or to hold a structure of some sort (greenhouse, garden shed, storage container etc), then you must look to purchase thicker patio slabs that will be able to hold the weight and not crack beneath it.

We recommend our concrete patio slabs for these areas as they are designed specifically for this job and will allow you to not worry about their durability.

For pathways or more modest paved areas, we recommend our sandstone patio slabs as they are available in a wider range of shapes, colours and sizes so that you do not lose out on the attractive appearance you dreamed for. They allow you to place the paving slabs in patterns and give you the ability to create quirkier and more imaginative designs.

If you are looking for a patio area for a large seating area, we recommend choosing our patio circles which are very attractive and are available in any dimension, any style or colour that you wish.

Area Size

It is important that before ordering your patio slabs, you measure accurately the area it is that you wish to cover with patio slabs.

We recommend ordering an extra couple of tiles so that you are not left with a half finished patio area. Our team are available on the phone on 01793 536784 to talk you through how to find out the perfect number of patio slabs that you require to complete your paving project.

To help you even further, we offer our patio slabs in patio packs so that you are not left with an odd number of slabs after the job and can bulk buy them to save you time, effort and money when ordering from Sansums.
