Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a patio cost?
The cost of your new patio will vary greatly, depending on things like the chosen materials, the size, and the complexity of the installation. We can help talk you through all costs involved specific to your design.
Do I need planning permission to build a patio?
It’s likely that your new patio will need council approval – however what this looks like exactly can vary depending on the size, height, decking or flooring type used and location on your site.
Will a patio increase the value of my home?
Yes, in many cases a patio may increase the value of your home. It’s a great way of adding a garden feature, vehicle shelter or dining area, and can make your home more attractive to potential future buyers.
Can I build my own patio?
It can be cheaper to purchase a kit and build it yourself, however we recommend this should only be done by experienced installers. If you’ve got the DIY skills needed and want to do your own installation, please feel free to talk to us about your options.
What size should a patio be?
Your patio should ideally complement your home and will need to be big enough to accommodate any furniture, vehicles or other fixtures you’re planning to shelter. Beyond that, it’s up to you and what size you need to create your happy place.
Are your patios made with genuine Australian steel?
Yes, we use COLORBOND® steel, and materials roll-formed in Australia by Stramit. Customisations or accessories may vary in origin – please feel free to talk to us if you’ve got any questions about your exact design.
