Patios and Terraces

As with walks, check all patios and terraces for any tripping hazards. There shouldn't be any weeds growing between the joints of the sections. Any uneven sections need to be repaired. If the patio touches the side of the foundation, then it must be well caulked and sloped away to prevent water from draining toward the house. In most areas building permits and approvals are needed to build patios. Tell the client to check this at town hall.
