Pattern Paving

Pattern paving can be an issue in regard to it longevity and the binding of the finished surface to the substrate concrete base.  Lots dependent on the initial costing and organising, that is the size and the labour suitable to achieve the required likewise the money to cover the labour and materials.

Weather can be a real problem and should not be commenced knowing what those conditions will be during the day and evening, I say evening because the finish is at the end of the day and in no way do you need bad weather at that stage.

When the pattern and colour powder is applied the surface must still be acceptable to allow bonding, the materials has to be spread evenly and consistent, that is why you would recommend the same applicator is used. Working pattern again  time being the essence to when the surface will not be ready for the pattern to be removed either to early or even to late, all related to awareness and trialing.

Seal surface within days of the surface being finished, time also to saw-cut if applicable, spacing of the control joints are approx 3-4m centres, all dependent on the type of mesh used and the thickness of the concrete slab.
