Installation

Doing-it-yourself

We'd normally recommend that you choose a trained builder, paving contractor or landscape gardener to install a new patio or paved area.

However, we appreciate that some of you are more than capable of laying a few slabs. For those of you that do need a little help or advice, we are more than happy to assist. We have a detailed description and procedure that you can follow for each of our paving products. If you need further information, please contact our team of paving experts. Remember, we can supply all of the materials you need to complete your install too...

 


ULTRAPAVE installation instructions

Ultrapave is most definitely the easiest, cheapest and quickest way to pave. The following steps will help you achieve your goal:

1) For a new patio area, excavate approximately 125mm (5 inches) of the surface earth or until the ground feels hard. Replace this with approximately 100mm (4 inches) of crushed stone and compact using a vibrating plate or roller. You can hire these from your local hire centre. Ensure that you allow adequate fall to obtain sufficient drainage once the patio is complete. We recommend a gradient of round 1 in 60.

2) Peg or mark the area which you intend to pave. It is an idea to work in a parallel line from say a building, garage or existing path.

3) Using a cement mixer, mix three parts building sand to one part cement until the consistency is workable but not too wet. Place several spots/dabs where your first slab is to be laid, place your slab onto the mortar (we recomend wetting the back of the slab to aid adhesion), and tap into place using a rubber mallet. Level the slab using a spirit level and use a line band to ensure that your slabs will follow a straight line. Once the slab is tapped down and levelled, the spots/dabs will spread so that a near full bed of mortar supports the slab. You may need to place extra mortar around the edges of the slab if your spots/dabs were not exactly in the correct place. This will also help prevent the escape of pointing compound (or mortar) later on.

4) Repeat step 3 ensuring that the joints between each slab are near equal. We recommend that you leave the slabs about 2mm apart (at the bottom) to create the correct width joint. Make sure that no one (including dogs!) can walk on your new patio area until the following day. Ideally, two days is recommended to guarantee that the cement has fully hydrated and the slabs are fixed. 

5) As with all installations, we recommend using our Residual pointing compound. It’s much easier, neater and quicker than cement mortar. Simply following the instructions on the leaflet and you’re away! Alternatively, if you choose to use cement mortar please read step six.

6) Mix two parts silver sand to one part cement until the consistency is workable but not too wet.  We recommend using one of our pointing dyes in order to match the pointing to the paving. Place a small amount of mortar onto a hand board and push the mortar into the joints with a mastic/pointing trowel. Be careful not to drop the mortar on top of the paving as this will most certainly stain the surface of the slab. Remove any spillages with clean water immediately.

This is what you should need to complete your project. Please note that all quantities are given in good faith and we cannot be held responsible for shortages or left over materials.

Manufactured stone pavings
installation instructions

Our range of premium manufactured, standard manufactured and budget manufactured stone can be installed in pretty much the same manor. The following instructions should help you through...

1) For a new patio area, excavate approximately 150mm (6 inches) of the surface earth or until the ground feels hard. Replace this with approximately 100mm (4 inches) of crushed stone and compact using a vibrating plate or roller. You can hire these from your local hire centre. Ensure that you allow adequate fall to obtain sufficient drainage once the patio is complete. We recommend a gradient of round 1 in 60.

2) Peg or mark the area which you intend to pave. It is an idea to work in a parallel line from say a building, garage or existing path.

Natural Stone Paving
installation instructions

Our range of natural stone paving products may take that little longer to install than our manufactured and particularly our easy intall paving due to the varying thickness. However, the following steps will provide all that you need to know:

1) For a new patio area, excavate approximately 150mm (6 inches) of the surface earth or until the ground feels hard. Replace this with approximately 100mm (4 inches) of crushed stone and compact using a vibrating plate or roller. You can hire these from your local hire centre. Ensure that you allow adequate fall to obtain sufficient drainage once the patio is complete. We recommend a gradient of round 1 in 60.

2) Peg or mark the area which you intend to pave. It is an idea to work in a parallel line from say a building, garage or existing path.

3) Using a cement mixer, mix three parts building sand to one part cement until the consistency is workable but not too wet. Place several spots/dabs where your first slab is to be laid, place your slab onto the mortar(ensuring that the largest surface is to the top!), and tap into place using a rubber mallet. Level the slab using a spirit level and use a line band to ensure that your slabs will follow a straight line. Once the slab in tapped down and levelled, the spots/dabs will spread so that a near full bed of mortar supports the slab. You may need to place extra mortar around the edges of the slab if your spots/dabs were not exactly in the correct place. This will also help prevent the escape of pointing compound (or mortar) later on.

4) Repeat step 3 ensuring that the joints between each slab are near equal. We recommend that you leave the slabs about 20mm apart to create the correct width joint (the joints WILL vary in width so open or close the joints in order to align the slabs). Make sure that no one (including dogs!) can walk on your new patio area until the following day. Ideally, two days is recommended to guarantee that the cement has fully hydrated and the slabs are fixed. 

5) As with all installations, we recommend using our Residual pointing compound. It’s much easier, neater and quicker than cement mortar. Simply following the instructions on the leaflet and you’re away! Alternatively, if you choose to use cement mortar please read step six.

SMARTPAVE (The lightest and easiest paving solution) installation instructions

Smartpave is perfect for revitalising any old area of paving or simply creating a traditionally paved patio effect on pretty much any solid surface. The following instructions will make the intallation effortless!

 1) Plan the desired area which you intend to pave and ensure the surface is clean. A stiff brush is all you need to clean off any dirt, moss or algae that may have formed.

2) Using a plaster whisk, drill with a whisk or even just a stick!, mix the adhesive until the consistency is workable but not too wet. Spread the adhesive out over an area of where your first few slabs are to be laid, ideally around 6mm thick (you can remove any low spots in your existing surface by increasing the thickness of the adhesive). Place your slab onto the adhesive and shuffle into place with your hands. You may want to check the level the slab using a spirit level and use a line band to ensure that your slabs will follow a nice straight line. Remember, you can even disguise drain covers with Smartpave!

3) Repeat step 2 until the entire area is covered. You may need to cut certain slabs to suit. This is easily done using any size of angle grinder. Intricate cuts are made easy due to the thickness of Smartpave.

4) The adhesive will only take a couple of hours to harden before you can use your new patio. It's really that simple. A new patio in a matter of hours!

This is what you should need to complete your project. Please note that all quantities are given in good faith and we cannot be held responsible for shortages or left over materials.

Adhesive - 1 - 20kg bag will cover 6 square metres (3.33kgs per square metre @6mm depth)
