Paving slabs have a large number of types, which gives it a huge advantage over, for example, asphalt or concrete. Easy to install, easy to repair.
Paving slabs can be artificial and natural. The artificial tile is a material made using certain technologies in an industrial way. Natural tile is a material made from natural resources by their mechanical processing.
When choosing paving slabs, you need to consider the purpose of the tile. Will it be a pedestrian zone or a road for the passage of cars. In this case, a tile of the appropriate thickness, size, manufacturing method is purchased.
Modern paving slabs come in a variety of shapes and types. Simple tiles for pedestrian areas, as a rule, have the shape of a square or rectangle and are produced in small thicknesses. Tiles can be of various shapes, in the form of rectangles of different sizes and thicknesses, rhombuses, circles, squares, ovals and other geometric shapes.
A trusted supplier is the most reliable confirmation of the quality of the goods. When knocking against each other, dry and high-quality paving slabs make a ringing sound, fresh or tiles of insufficient quality are deaf. The low cost of the material guarantees more than half the guarantee of poor quality.
In many cases, concrete-type paving slabs can last from 10 to 50 years. The service life depends on many factors such as: operating conditions, the load exerted on paving slabs, paving care and much more. Some types of paving slabs do not have an expiration date and a certain service life at all and, with proper care, will serve more than one generation.
Any paving slabs made by artificial means are made using dyes. In most cases, the majority of manufacturers use dyes of medium quality in their production. Therefore, the tile may lose its rich bright color over time. When ordering tiles, if possible, you need to order tiles with the use of dyes of increased resistance to fading. When using tiles, use special impregnations to protect them to preserve their appearance and color.
Improper laying of paving slabs often leads to its destruction and loss of its original properties. It is also worth considering mechanical damage to the tile, as a result of which it can also be subject to destruction. In places with a heavy load, it is worth laying tiles with vibrocompression manufacturing technology with an increased thickness. It has the best parameters to other types of tiles.
You can remove dry dirt and dust from the surface of the tile using ordinary items, such as a brush, broom, and the like. Moist dirt can be removed with water, washing off the dirt with water pressure. For long-term preservation of paving slabs of their properties, do not allow excessive loads and mechanical damage to the surface.
Paving slabs should be cleaned in winter using mechanical means that cannot damage the surface, such as a wooden or plastic shovel. Frost can be removed using special chemicals. In no case do not sprinkle the surface of the tiles with salt!
At the stage of laying paving slabs, geotextiles must be applied in one of the layers under the surface of the tile. It prevents the growth of grass and weeds. Also, in an existing problem, you need to use chemicals to remove grass and weeds.
Yes, following all the instructions you will be able to carry out all the work yourself. But it may take more time and effort for you than for specialists.
Laying paving slabs can be done anywhere, but subject to all the rules and regulations of laying.
