hi all

I’m only a DIY’er so go easy lol !

Currently working on a project at home for a new patio area with 20mm porcelain tiles the chosen finish sat upon Adpeds at a level / fall to suit .

I’ve only laid the tiles on “dry” so far just to keep checking that I’m putting the Adpeds in the correct position , I have a 75mm fall across the patio .

Before I start fixing the tiles with the adhesive do you think the heights of the pads are ok some vary by 5-6mm do you think the adhesive will take up the difference’s or would I be best taking a bit off the highest one ?

Also will this trowel be ok it’s a 20mm notch trowel that I intend to use ?

Thanks

Wow!
The ultimate dot and dab!
That’s going to be like an ice rink.
Someone who has done the self levelling tile pedestals will be along to advise your method.
If it works then I assume tile levelling clips would help you.

Lol ! 170 + dots & dabs to be precise ( 6 per tile ! )

Nearly there now , there not the slightest bit slippery although they do look like they are .

They’re treated with a R11 antil slip finish & are really grippy to feel anyway , might be a bit different with a bit of frost / ice on them bug can’t be as bad as the decking when that’s damp !

Thanks for the reply

Yes seen that , it’s just the small differences in the heights on a few of that I was a little concerned about , but guess a thick bed of adhesive will take up the differences
