Proper Idea About The Shape:
Before digging out the floor, one should have a proper idea about the shape and size of the design. One can use Black edging to form a proper outline of the shape. After the digging is done, always make sure that the depth dug out is properly leveled.
Preparing The Proper Mixture:
First prepare the concrete by mixing up enough concrete to fill the outline of the flooring base. It should be within 2 inches of the top of the black edging. Then mix the concrete and the pebbles thoroughly in a proper ratio.
Pouring And Leveling The Mixture:
Pour the mixture slowly and thoroughly inside the base until the depth reached is 2 inches approximately. Then do the proper leveling by using the 2 by 4 by 8 lumber. It removes the extra concrete away by pushing the pebbles properly down into the concrete. Then leave it for few hours to settle properly.
Addition of Epoxy:
After the mixture has been settled, add the epoxy on top of the flooring which needs to stay in the border of the edging. Leave it for 24 hours within which it will fillup all the spaces between the pebbles. Then add another layer of epoxy to make sure that all the pebbles are sealed.
The seal needs to cure properly before the flooring is used. The epoxy applied their will let you know the amount of time needed for the seal to be cured properly. After that, the sealing is ready to be used.
Before and while installation of these pebble stones, always take care of the above factors for a better and long lasting pebble style floor.
