If you’re planning on installing a ceramic tile floor or brick patio, renting a wet saw to cut the material can make the project go faster and look more professional. Wet saws employ a specially designed blade to cut through the tile or brick, with water circulated over the blade to cool down the blade.
The joints between patio pavers are usually filled with sand, which has a tendency to wash out of the cracks over time. PowerLoc Jointing Sand from Quikrete is a polymer based product that prevents it from washing out or cracking. Simply pour it out and sweep the jointing sand diagonally into the cracks with a push broom. To lock it in place, mist the surface down with water from a sprayer, going over it three times within an hour, and let dry.
Spending time outdoors in the backyard is a great way to relax. However, a suitable place for the barbecue grill, table, and chairs is a must. Watch this video to find out how to lay a paver patio for your yard.
