Patio Repairs

For people  who have an existing patio and are not sure what to do  .

The main question asked  with an  existing structure is  whether it is  unsafe and needs pulling down or… can it be saved?

The clients  had previous advice to pull down their existing Patio and build a new one by other contractors.

Upon inspection sure enough , it was found that 4 rafters had wood rot …but we could replace. Also some minor holes could be treated and filled on some of the others.

But most importantly the main beams and posts were structurally sound apart from some rot on the bottom of  2 posts and rusty stirrups the patio still had plenty  to offer.

We  trimmed off the rot from the bottom of the posts  once we had dug out the old footings  and stirrups.

Replaced the old stirrups with new galvanized ones then cut and  replaced the existing brick pavers.

From here it was one step at a time after all the timbers were repainted.
