Adding a footpath to your home is always a great move. They make it easier to get around your home, they can look fantastic and if they’re done right they should last for a long time. And even though it might seem straightforward, there are some things that can go wrong. If the people doing your footpath aren’t professionals you might end up with a footpath that isn’t flush with the surrounds. You’ve probably seen wonky paths sticking out of the ground at the wrong angle before. Not to mention that if mistakes are made in the laying of the path then you can end up with cracks that ruin the aesthetics and leave you feeling ripped off.
That’s why it’s of vital importance that you choose the right concreter for the job. The right concreter knows how to lay a path correctly that won’t leave you with headaches down the road. The first step is to level the ground beneath the path and ensure that it’s prepared correctly. Moisture in the base is one cause of cracking, so it’s important that the base is properly prepared before the concrete is poured. This process can be labour intensive which is why some operators don’t do it as properly as they should. The final step is to use control joints to prevent cracking. If done correctly you can be confident that your path will last a long, long time.
