How long do paving slabs take to set?
In respect to this, how long before you can walk on paving slabs?
One may also ask, should I leave a gap between paving slabs? I'd recommend a 10mm gap between slabs. As for leaving a gap - it all depends on the edge style of the slabs. If they have an edge designed to mimic a natural stone product (uneven) then you'll need to go with the pointed gap.
Keeping this in consideration, how long does a patio take to set?
The concrete patio slab will take five to seven days to cure. During this period, the slab must be kept wet at all times with garden sprinklers or a garden hose. It must never allow it to dry out all the way during the curing period.
How many slabs should be laid in a day?
I can lay about 25 square metres of random lay rough cut slabs a day. Anything over 20 is a good speed. /Obviously it all depends on how accurate your base is and the quality of slabs.
