Here are five more common questions customers have regarding patio installations in Western Australia:
6 – Updates
Your patio installer will contact you when necessary, such as when obtaining a Building Licence and three weeks before construction begins.
7 – Gable or Dome Style Patio?
These popular patio designs are distinguished by the type of roof used, as well as roofing materials. Gable roofs are made from Colorbond steel with a pitched roof profile and skylights, whereas dome roofs are curved and made from plastic.
8 – Payment Methods
Patios can be paid for using credit cards or cheques, in person or over the phone. Payment will be required upon receipt of the Building Licence.
9 – Choosing a Contractor
You should check whether your patio company uses dedicated contractors or hires third party workers. Dedicated contractors will generally be more knowledgeable about the products and materials and can give you greater peace of mind.
10 – Patio Gutters
Gutter systems are an important consideration when installing a patio, to ensure water is directed away from the patio following rainfall and won’t lead to pooling or corrosion. Kissing gutter systems are the recommended option, as this keeps the patio’s drainage system separate from that of the main house. Box gutter systems combine patio and house water and carry a higher risk of overflow.
