Step-by-step instructions for laying terrace slabs
Substructure: to ensure the load-bearing capacity and frost protection, a layer of gravel (20-30 cm) and a layer of sand (10 cm) are required. The gravel makes the substructure winterproof: the small gaps allow the freezing water to expand without damage. The sand layer should be aligned with a 2% slope away from the house, so the water can run off better. Use a straight edge to smoothly remove sand and gravel (long test equipment to compensate for height differences - similar to a long spirit level).
You start the first row on the house wall. It is essential to keep an expansion joint (15-20 mm) away from solid components. Depending on which type of plate you have chosen, place the plates close to one another or hold them, e.g. B. with the help of cross spacers, 3-5 mm distance between the panels.
Hit the plates into the sand bed with a rubber mallet.
When all the tiles are in place, sweep the joints with quartz sand, grit, or paving grout with a large broom.
