Patios provide a place for you to spend time with loved ones and enjoy the outdoors, all without leaving the comfort of your home. The cost of building a patio will depend on several factors.
Features such as patio materials, site preparation and patio design influence the price of building a patio. For example, a basic 10x20 feet concrete slab patio costs £1,300, while a similar-sized flagstone patio may run you £2,340, according to Costhelper.com. Adding texture or custom designs into your patio will raise the overall cost.
The more square footage your patio will be, the more materials and labour will be required to build it. If you're building a large patio, consider doing some of the labour yourself to save money.
The spending doesn't stop after the patio is built. To complete your patio, adorn it with accessories such as furniture, a grill, plants and sun protection. Adding accessories to your patio generally increases the price by £130 to £3,250, according to Costhelper.com.
