Re: 14x16 Patio


It looks good, but what kind of magic do you use to suspend that brick?

I will get a pic of it, as I need to go over there and discuss some landscaping the home owners want done.
You really need to cut a joint
around that brick line.
It should rest only on the brick ledge,
not on the flat work, which will move.
I've seen it over and over, either the
flat work, the brick, or both will crack
when your concrete heaves on the
outside edge.

They must have laid the brick on an
angle iron to keep it isolated from
the concrete work to begin with.

Re: 14x16 Patio


No expansion/control joints on the slab? Also, did you put a gravel base down?

Re-read my previous post on the control joints

I did not put gravel down as the base was already well compacted undistributed earth.
