The existing substrates included a block and beam deck with a sand and cement screed. The finished build-up consisted of 32mm Indian sandstone slabs, bedding mortar and a damp proof membrane which had failed.
The existing system was completely removed back to the block and beam structural deck. A Polymodified laid to falls screed was then applied to the substrate. This was utilised due to the reduced amount of water required in comparison to a standard sand and cement screed, allowing for a reduced overlay time for the Triflex system.
The client was initially in two minds when choosing between Triflex Stone Design and Triflex ColourQuartz for the final surface finish. But with the ColourQuartz finish being available with a wider selection of colour options, it provided the bespoke look the client was looking for.
Lastly the Triflex BTS-P solution meant that any future issues with standing or ponding water would be no cause for concern as this system is hydrolysis resistant, meaning it is not affected by submersion under water.
