Eagle Eye Construction has built a wide variety of patios ranging from basic broom finished to colored and stamped patios with custom curves and tiers. We can provide you the expertise you are looking for in order to create an outdoor area that you will enjoy for decades to come. Here are some things to consider when building or replacing your patio.
- Minimum thickness should be 4 inches.
- Subgrade (ground) is properly compacted to prevent future settling and cracking.
- Rebar recommended when placing concrete on poor material or where tree roots may cause future uplift.
- Top of concrete should ideally be 1"-2" above the surrounding ground.
- Patio is sloped to carry water away from buildings and not hold water.
- Exposed edges are thickened as necessary to prevent loss of material under slab.
- Crack control joints are grooved into wet concrete or saw-cut into cured concrete at joint spacings not exceeding 10ft to prevent mid-panel cracking.
- Concrete isn't overwatered during placement. Too much water reduces the compression strength of the concrete.
- Conveyence of the concrete from the truck to the patio. Basically, how to move the concrete whether it is by wheelbarrow, motorized buggy, or with a concrete pump truck.
Patterned and Colored Concrete
If you're looking for a more custom look to your patio, we offer a variety of stamp patterns from stone to wood plank. There are also a multitude of dyes that can be mixed into the concrete and accented with release agents to create visuals that will mimic the natural look of aged slate or weathered rock. Here are a few pattern options we offer:
- Rock salt
- 6" & 12" wood planks
- Ashlar slate
- Brick (herringbone, running, and soldiered)
- Rough stone
- Custom saw-cut joint patterns
