Hello all, I'm a long term lurker and first time poster.
I've read that the preferred method to lay porcelain is to lay a concrete slab which I'm preparing currently - which is 40 sqm - sqm on the front of a building and 20 sqm on the left so there is a right angle corner.
I've created a fall on the shuttering by using a long spirit level and made sure the bubble sits proud on the little line in the bubble window – sorry but I am a lay man – I hope this is enough fall!
My question is am I doing this right because what I’m worried about is when I pour the concrete it will sink to the lowest point.
Also due to access issues am I going to mix the concrete with an oversized mixer and wheel barrow it into place. In my simple mind I will do it in sections too, am I mad to do it this like this?
Finally, if my approach is acceptable please can you recommend the mix as I’ve read the concrete page but get confused with C20, slump etc
Is it possible to attach images as I've not uploaded them anywhere to link too?
