Laying Pattern Guide for Paving Stones

We understand the importance of providing our customers with accurate information and guidance on the proper way to lay patio paving slabs. While we appreciate the efforts of video authors who share popular videos on this topic, we recognize that not everyone is necessary to create professional laying videos because these types of video guidance are a lot. Therefore, we strongly recommend that customers search for the proper way to lay patio paving stones on reliable online sources such as Google.

It must be emphasized that gardeners and DIYers should always keep the mortar evenly on the ground when screed bedding to lay patio paving slabs. This ensures an even application of mortar and prevents the use of uneven mortar techniques such as spot or ring underlayments, which could compromise the stability of the slab.

Also, it's important to note that all natural stones have pores that allow them to absorb moisture. Many slabs on the market will suffer from water stains if not laid properly. It is highly recommended that you seek professional advice and guidance when laying your patio. Alerting your landscaper to levelling the underlayment will help keep the mortar level, even on the ground, reducing the risk of water stains.

If customer wants to minimize the risk of water stains as much as possible, consider using a sealant. It is important to note, however, that we cannot give specific recommendations of any sealant brand, as no one can guarantee that the sealant will completely prevent water stains when laying natural stone paving. When purchasing sealants, it is recommended that customer consult sealant experts, and then apply them on a large scale after a small-scale trial to avoid irreversible consequences.

When laying natural stone paving slabs, it is advisable to place them on a full bed of mortar. While this may not completely prevent water staining, it can reduce the chances of it happening. It is a widely accepted good practice to lay paving stones fully bedded and not laid on dots and dabs.

It is worth noting that most stone dealers sell similar products under different names, which means that the risk of staining damage is often the same for different products. However, proper installation practice is essential to reducing this risk.

Prompt cleaning of solidifiable chemical grout material is very important for surface grouting of all types of paving slabs, including natural stones and porcelain. Failure to do so may result in resin hardener being printed on the surface of the slab. The stain may not be absorbed by the slab, but the solidifiable chemical hardener will remain, causing potential problems with hard cleaning.

By providing these reminders and tips, we aim to ensure our customers have a successful and aesthetically pleasing patio installation experience. When working with paving stones, it is best to seek professional guidance and follow industry best practices for the best results.
