All-Weather Outdoor Area
Did you know that the word patio is derived from the Spanish ‘patu’ or ‘pati’ meaning pasture or the land at the back of the house? Over time it developed to be an outside living area, before reaching its modern day incarnation as an area adjacent to the house.
Today it doubles as a barbecue area, outdoor play room and seating area, providing a low maintenance, all weather surface that should main intact for years to come.
At Fost & Co we work with only the finest materials to bring you the perfect patio. Read on to find out more about a selection of surfaces.
Italian Porcelain Paving
Italy is the porcelain capital of the world and as such produces the best porcelain patio paving. Available in a vast range of colours and textures, it has a number of benefits, such as:
And as an engineered product, Italian Porcelain Paving is also easier to work with as the sizing of each slab is more consistent and provides a seamless join.
But above all, Italian Porcelain Paving offers a selection of beautiful contemporary finishes that can even mimic the look of timber or tile.
Although one of the most expensive paving options on the market, its benefits and longevity offer remarkable value.
At Fost & Co we work extensively with Sawn Sandstone – one of the most popular, contemporary patio materials.
Sandstone is available in two forms – riven (which means the stone is naturally split along its fault line) and sawn (the stone is sawed straight off the block in large slabs that are then cut down to the required paving size). The surface can be honed, sandblasted, brushed or flamed, which gives it its natural warm hues.
Its super-smooth surface brings a touch a class to any patio area and can be used to great effect with contrasting pebble borders or shrubberies.
Offering a range of subtle tones and shades, this riven paving complements a range of properties and garden styles.
It too has a range of positive aspects, including:
Long-lasting sleek appearance
At Fost & Co we work only with a range of trusted suppliers to guarantee the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of your patio.
Well known for its exceptionally hardwearing consistency, Granite Paving is one of the most popular on the market.
Suitable for areas where there is particularly high footfall, Granite is a natural, tough, scratch-resistant surface that needs little care and attention throughout the year. Available in a range of shades and tones, this durable option makes the perfect choice for most types of property.
