- Is 1:50 (2%) too much fall for a patio?
According to paving expert typical fall for residential paving is 1:60 so you’re not a million miles away from that. I would only alter it if every time I looked at it I thought “that don’t look right” in which case it’d be worth it just to quieten that internal voice.Posted 1 year ago
Anyway, luckily its only marked out and graded so we are going to fix this. Meanwhile we are having a discussion about joint gaps, landscaper wants 15mm, I want 5mm. Its sawn and honed indian sandstone, 600×900.
He says smaller than 15mm and the sand cement joint, he suggested, will not stay in. I want smaller gaps because I have the same flooring for my garden room and kitchen and I want ti to be tight and neat.
Can sand cement stay in 5mm gap, or should they joint it with another product?Posted 1 year ago
5mm is tight. I doubt it will last more than one winter, you just won’t be able to consolidate it properly in the joint. Some of the epoxy hose in types are good. I used it on my Indian sandstone. Prep is the key tho as it’s **** expensive so you really only want to be filling the joints and not any voids. There is a guide on the tub and I’m sure that recommends nothing less than 10mm for that type of pointing.Posted 1 year ago
