How Long Does It Take A Perth Patio Builder To Complete Your Patio?

 One of the frequent questions Perth patio builders hear is “How long will it be when you complete my patio?”

The answer will surprise most Perth homeowners and landlords.

You see, once you accept the quote from your chosen Perth patio builder and pay the deposit, the patio builder will need to complete the patio design drawings and submit them to the relevant shire for approval.

Each WA shire council has a different approval period. Some are super quick to approve the Perth patio design for your home within one week, and others can take up to four weeks.

Being a government body – you cannot rush them. Each shire has their own way of processing the patio design applications. They will ensure that the design fits within your site building envelope and that the looks structurally sound.  Often they will be familiar with your chosen Perth patio builder and will know they produce solid designs.

After the plans have been approved, your local Perth patio builder will order the materials and make the triangular beams and other customised supports for patio roofing materials.

Usually, your patio builder will now request another progress payment to cover their material costs and labour so far.

Your Perth patio builder will then deliver with a truck all the completed beams, supports and patio roofing material including any colorbond steel and polycarbonate plastic sheets to your home or investment property.

Then just like meccano, your Perth patio builder will arrive with a small team (2-4 people) to assemble your new patio.

The assembly period varies, of course, depending on the size and complexity of your patio design. Usually it will take them one day for a very small patio, up to 5 days for a large, more complex one.

So to answer your initial question – it depends. However, your Perth patio builder will give you a close estimate. Usually from the time you pay the deposit, anytime between 3 weeks to 8 weeks.

If you would like to have the patio completed ready for an important birthday or other event, please take the time required into consideration.  Book your patio builder early.

P.S.  I hope you enjoyed our Perth patio articles this year.  Have a good start to the New Year.
