Kennel /run Floor

Recommended Posts

My Kennels floor has been down 3 years and its in shit state ,flaking where water must of got in and expanded etc etc

 

Question is do i just dig it all up and relay as it runs at a slope and if like ive read on here laid ontop of old it would only be a few mm thick at the top end by buildings

 

Is there any concrete mix that's better to lay than others for run floors and would applying a sealer every year help

Hard it! That's what the screed is called mix up and pour over it self levelling and good stuff only thing is that when wet it can get slippy so I painted mine with grit floor paint just a idea for ye to look in to cracking set up

You can use quarry tiles or the type used around swimming pools. I'm not sure of the cost it was a few years back when I done minehttp://m.wallsandfloors.co.uk/catrangetiles/quarry-tiles/traditional-quarry/red-7573/11968/?gclid=CMfKqJjQ7cMCFabHtAodWWAAKg

Mine has done the same in places.I used a ready mix company as I had to lay it in a day on my own I wish I'd have knocked it up myself now.My mate is going to Tile mine in the summer 18squ metres he's told me to shop about and find the best deal on non slip porcelains.Im hoping to find some 600mm square tiles so there is less grout.I can't remember what adhesive and grout he said he would use but I know he said something about flexi.He said not to use quarry tiles as they are too porous.

Quarry tiles are sound as long as you seal them every so often with linseed oil, the piss just rolls off them into the drains

Mate thats such a shame, as your kennels look better than my house..

 

Can you not re lay a couple of inches ??

 

Time you fork out for tiles and someone to lay them or your own time.
