Hi, got my first slate job next week and wondering what the corect method for laying them on to a fully cured concrete floor would be ? i will be cleaning the slate and putting them into different thickness etc starting off with the thickest tile first. whats the best addy to use for this ? floor is not perfect and theres no ufh and no deflection. thanks
hi terry i would fix your thicker tiles in centre leaving cuts to perimeter to use up your thinner tiles....do check the ratio of thick to thin tiles you have however as the thick may not work in your favour
thanks ! iam a bit of a novice regarding slate/stone to be honest , another tiler i kind of no said he would only use sand and cement for fixing slate ? thought this was a bit odd as sand and cement has to be a certain mm in depth to bond 60 65mm ? is this correct? got a HG sealer for the slate. i get confused over stone tiles and slurrys / dry pack/wet mix, sbr, bed thickness etc... but hopefully this will all become clear one day so i can get a good night sleep for once !
its uncalibrated , so iam thinking of a latex self leveler then start from the centre with the thickest tile with a thick bed addy working my way to the edges with the thiner tiles. just one more question , how do you level the tiles when laying slate , as there all different hights if you no what i mean ! normaly i would put a level on each tile to the next to get a flat surface ?
