Although the name suggests, a stone carpet is not just roll out like a normal carpeting, but is most often touched from individual small stones and binder and processed wet.

How to lay on the terrace a stone carpet

  1. Once you have everything necessary for laying worried, you must first prepare your patio floor. It must be even, clean, free of grease, dry and firm. Only when this is played, you can start working.
  2. Any joints or other uneven areas in your current patio surface must now be smoothed flush. The base area must be plastered with a fine plaster and should be given a primer. If everything has dried, you can continue with the installation of your stone carpet.
  3. If no tiles are on your patio, but the bare plaster, concrete or wood, you now have a pore saturating apply primer. If this is also dried, you can install special profiles to the edges. Find out what profiles are right for your floor and the way in which you have to fix these profiles. This can be very different.
  4. After fixing the profiles of dirt and grease should be removed. Now measure the terrace for the sealing foil and cut it to fit. Lay it on the terrace and beat them at the edges 20 inches around. Drag there the backing paper and slide it under the roller seal.
  5. Now pull the PU glue a small path along the profile strip and chamfer with a spatula edge of the profile. Now you can seal foil carefully adhere to the terrace floor and on the profile (up to the outermost groove) to which you deducted the carrier film. If the initial done, you can remove the backing paper piece by piece and glue the sealing film on the entire terrace.
  6. With a utility knife, you can then cut off the excess residues at the edges. In the places where you had to overlap two sealing films, you should seal the seam with a Andr├╝ckroller. If you post on your patio, they must be sealed with acrylic fleece and liquid plastic to 5 cm around the post. Once done and dried, you can move the stone carpet.
  7. Slide the first stone carpet disk on terrace edge under the profile and move all other boards it end to end, until the entire floor is laid. To post around the plates must be 15-20 mm around it cut or broken. Cut to advance the backing paper on the back of the stone carpet tile with a carpet knife. With a wet tile cutter can trim the plates well.
  8. Before attaching the panels cut at the base, the backing paper on the back must be deducted. There you enter on of the PU adhesive and stick them then fixed to the base. Along the top you also bring on PU adhesive to seal everything. Now you have to touch some stone carpet granulate, with the same color pattern of the plates, with komponentigem liquid plastic PU. The perfect blend consists of 10 pieces Stone Carpet granules and a portion of liquid plastic. The mixture is then applied with a trowel in all the gaps, for example, to the post and pressed so granules and plates provide a unit and the transitions are no longer recognizable. After curing your stone carpet is finished and usable on your patio.
