Patio Tiles are an easy and fast way to remodel various surfaces at home. It seems like no other tiling technique can be used for so many applications as provided by these stone panels. If you feel that you want to remodel your homes interior/exterior by yourself - read the following review. Patio Tiles are actually a collection of the same natural stones that are fixed onto a sq/ft mesh backing. If you ever spent your holidays on the South East Asian Islands youll probably notice that most of these imported stone tiles are originated from these beaches. If you think of it you can easily decorate any surface and any room setting: a) Bathrooms b) Kitchens c) Internal and external flooring (patios for example) d) all types of backsplashes etc.
Now the very next thing is to calculate the area which you want to cover with pavers. You need to work out the same as the numbers of pavers depend on this area factor. However generally you should buy 20% extra pavers as they may waste due to sudden breakage transportation or cuts. Ask your vendor whether the pavers are all new. Do you know many of these paver vendors tend to sell second hand materials too? Plus they also pack some already cut pavers in the pack which you might miss to observe. This is in fact a very natural trick played by the paver sellers. Hence make sure while purchasing that the products are new and they are all unbroken.
The final step which ensures a tight secure field is to wash joint sand over the newly installed pavers. This sand will fill any and all voids between each and every paver. Its only purpose is to ensure that none of the pavers move. Frequently homeowners are concerned by the presence of sand on their deck. We remind them however that you need not see this join sand. Thin pavers are at least an inch in thickness and the smallest amount say 1/4 of inch of joint sand between the bricks for this type of application will keep all of the pavers in place and secure for years to come.
Concrete Pavers: this type is more or less a variation of brick pavers; instead of clay the components of the mixture include water concrete or cement sand and other types of solid aggregates which are then molded under a high temperature kiln. Concrete pavers are commonly rectangular in shape and are arranged in the floor surface with gaps/joints of grout grass gravel or sand. Flooring pavers of this type are popular for their simple minimalist yet tidy appearance. Stone Pavers: boast of the natural look that they can bring in any spot. Paving components used for this type include granite limestone or flagstone which are polished and molded to suit the pattern desired.
