When looking to purchase a new patio one of the most commonly asked questions is the price, it is also high on the search list when looking for patios on the internet.
Some Patio companies will provide prices for patios on their websites, while others will ask you to provide some details in order to give you an estimate on the cost.
BUT are you really getting a true indication of what the patio will cost from a company’s advertised price on their website?
New homes are popping up all over Perth but a lot of these properties are made up of odd shapes or angles as we try to squeeze as much out of a block as we can.
Back in the day the good old Aussie home was a rectangle block sitting on about a quarter acre. Now days it is quite a lot less and getting smaller every year as can be read from these articles from Perth Now from December 2013 and May 2016:
The Extra Costs
Space is at a premium which means a generic or standard size patio advertised on a patio company’s website may not suit your needs and as such the price may not be a true indicator.
There may also be extras not included in the price of the advertised patio, for example box guttering, polycarbonate skylights etc.
Some advertised patios are for supply only meaning you are then left to install this yourself or hire another contractor to install the patio for you which is another extra cost.
The Fine Print
Be sure to read the fine print as some advertised patios may include shire approval, but this may only be for a building permit. If you require planning approval or another variation to the building codes you could be charged extra for this.
So the advertised price may not be a true reflection of the final cost it may be just the bare bones of what it could cost if everything is exactly spot on.
The Great Aussie Patios Difference
At Great Aussie Patios we consider all of our proposed patios to be custom as it is very rare to have 2 patios of the same dimensions.
Patios can be designed for the side of the home,
a court yard,
a pool area
even the largest of back yards.
There are many variables that we take into consideration when providing our onsite quotes, however we can also provide an estimate to give home owners with a budget to work with and at Great Aussie Patios our estimates still include all you will need right down to installation.
Our Patio Prices
So what are some of our most popular patios and what can it cost for your home?
Gable patios are by far the most popular when it comes to patio design,
closely followed by flat patios
or variances of a flat patio such as skillion or raised flat.
If you’re looking for a gable patio off the back of your home and you estimated the approximate size at 7mx5m it would be between $8000.00 & $8500.00.
One of our most popular requests is for a patio down the side of the home. Details can vary on design, length and width here but on average it would be 8mx2.5m and raised patios are quite popular. So based on 8mx2.5m our estimate would be between $4000.00 & $4500.00.
However you do have freedom for patios along the side of your home such as this half dome design. This patio was between $7000.00 & $7500.00.
Due to the smaller blocks and peculiar block shapes, a patio for a court yard is quite often requested. Given the smaller area, usually about 3.5mx3.5m any patio design in this place can work. Estimated prices for all patio designs are between $3500.00 to $4500.00.
These above estimates include all of our standard options:
Great Aussie Patios prides ourselves on our service, quality and performance. We are constantly striving to be the very best we can.
