WHERE TO USE 2CM PORCELAIN PAVERS

Porcelain Pavers are so versatile they can be used in practically every outdoor design application including; ground level patios, courtyards , garden areas and of course roof decks. Porcelain  pavers can be used on elevated decks with pedestals over any type of living space walk deck.  We will guide you through this process with our in house designers. 
 
 

OVER GROUND PAVER INSTALLATIONS
 
"on grade" Patios, courtyards, pavements or bare ground .  

Floating pavers over an existing surface such as an old concrete slab or brick courtyard is one of the easiest applications. You dont need very much surface preperation or messy thinset or grout. Area should be well drained and a clean surface.  Use our rubber support spacer tabs in 3/8th or 5/8th to level the pedestals over the area.  Shims can be used to level any low areas and they will add vibration dampening to create a solid feel.  Start in the best corner and work your way out.  Each tile is placed on the rubber supports and can be removed at any time.  Go ahead and think creative and add your lights and irrigation or perhaps a gas line for a fire pit. 


Dry laying the pavers on a sand bed and gravel bed is the best recommended application for landscape paving, patios, courtyards and walkways where you have bare dirt and want to stay within that same grade.  Decomposed granite leveled and compacted is a great sub surface for the pavers. No spacing is needed between the pavers, just make sure there is some slope for drainage for those rainy days.

Laying the porcelain pavers over grass is best installed when the grass is completely removed along with a shallow layer of top soil. This will create stability as the paver sets into the the soil over time. We always recommend a small amount of decomposed granite to sit the paver in. 

Installing the pavers over concrete slabs with thinset, allows you to use your pavers in areas of high traffic such as driveways, garage floors, and ground level walk decks. Dont worry 2CM porcelain pavers being so resistant to cracking they can withstand incredibly heavy loads such as cars. Reenforced concrete is best and a 1/8th or 1/16th grout line is recomended for expansion joints. No special thinset is needed saving money and time. 


WATERPROOFED ROOF DECKS or OVER LIVING SPACE

Living space roof decks or balconies has always been our specialty and is how Eco Arbor Designs came to be, how many times have we seen mortar bed decks be installed over roof surfaces only to leak and be removed within 10 years of installation.  By keeping your floor modular is what gives the advantage and what we have always recommended since 2005. While all the others continued with the old way we forged ahead with a proven real solution.  A sloping roof deck or balcony can easily be leveled with adjustable pedestals placing a support on each corner of the porcelain paver and in the center if needed. Open joints around each paver allow free drainage.  Our porcelain pavers can be re-enforced with a mesh backing or a steel plate to elliminate any liability of failure. Electric puck lighting and irrigation can be laid directly under the pavers for a seemless walkdeck. This type of installation maintains your access to the surface for years to come should your waterproofing need attention. 


Fixed height supports or adjustable supports?  The type of support to be used should be considered carefully. Both systems can be used to create a level deck on any waterproof surface. Either by the use of shims or micro adjustable supports, we can guide you in the right direction by reviewing plans and giving valuable advice, this is part of our value.  For heights above 12" we recommend the use of a center support or our structural support tray. We have designed floors with over 3 feet of space under them using this innovative system.  Call us for more information 888 335 8453

Care and Maintenance of 2cm Porcelain Pavers

General Dirt and debris

When trying to removedirt and debris, porcelain pavers are easy. We suggest scrubbing with a warm water acid free detergent.  A soft or hard bristle brush will remove stubborn dirt from the texture of the paver. 

Power Washing

Using power washers in a correct way can help to preserve the paving and keep it in good condition, however it is suggested to use a spraying movement when holding the power lance at narrow angle, not directing the power of lance directly on the joints. 

Acid Washing

Stains or discoloration on the porcelain pavers that are too stubborn to be removed with the above techniques can be removed with specific acid cleaning treatments to remove them. Take care and use a test tile, taking into consideration the percentage of acid concentration in the cleaners. 

Maintenance

Whilst porcelain pavers are exceptionally resistant to staining and generally need just a wash with water or with a neutral detergent diluted with water, more stubborn stains may require some additional effort to be removed from the surface. 

Try to avoid using abrasive products such as souring pads, steel wool pads or products containing strong acids ar alkilis. With difficult stains and dirt, use mild alkaline detergent, rinsing well with water after cleaning.  For large surfaces, we recommend cleaning with commercial washer-dryer machines. Please bear in mind that some typs of dirt sand ect) can have an abrasive effect on the surface over time which can wear away the color of the paver over a long period of time. It is recommended to sweep clear these areas so that abrasion does not occur. For very stubborn stains there is a specialized cleaner call the FILA Cleaner or FilaPS87
