All structures built on your property must be approved by your local shire before commencing construction, this includes your proposed patio. The specific process in which your building application goes through is largely influenced by which shire your property is located under. The Patio Guys obtain both shire and water corporation approval before building your patio.
Once we have received your block plans and have obtained your singature on any other forms that are required by the shire for your specific job application, The Patio Guys will prepare engineering specifications and submit your application to shire. Lodgement of your application takes between five and ten business days.
Depending on which shire your property falls under, the general time frame for shire approval takes between 6- 8 weeks, this time frame can vary depending on a number of influencing factors. We check in with the shire regularly and give you updates on your applications progress every fortnight via mail and/or phone.
Once we receive the building and/or planning approval we will notify you via mail. We then commence the design and fabrication of your patio which can take 5-6 weeks, please note that this time frame can vary.
Your scheduled date of installation will be confirmed in a letter sent to you approximately 2 weeks prior to installation and accompanied by a phone call, your materials will arrive 1-2 days before your date of installation and our friendly office staff will call you prior to your materials being delivered to confirm your patio installation date.
Please note that the entire process from date of sign up to completion of your patio can take at the least 12 weeks. This time frame can vary depending on the shire’s progress rates, supplier’s scheduling and many other influencing factors.
On the day of installation our installer will be on time, polite and leave the site clean at the end of each days work. During construction our construction supervisor will drop in to ensure the Patio is progressing well and is being constructed to The Patio Guys high standards. Once the patio is complete you will receive a follow up phone call and letter from The Patio Guys to ensure you are fully satisfied with your Patio!
A copy of your building license, water corporation approval, payment receipts and written warranty will be posted to you once full payment is received.
