what did u use to do the pebble wash?
epoxy adhesive or cement?
wat's the size of your pebble?
my hubby would like it just outside the MBR bathrm, & the foyer area. but i dunno how is it to feel. my ID says will be uncomfortable to the feet.
i am going to do pebblewash flooring with Slate tiles for my rather big for four room entrance foyer as well. i think its actually a great idea as its creates a calm and special feeling upon stepping into the hse.
wah, better think twice. pebble wash need to maintain regularly one lei. (think must scrub lightly with tootbrush) (scrub too heavily, all the pebble will come out)very hard to maintain, trap all the dirt and shit. stains very easily too. hard to wash lei. my old house i scrub until siao lei. nice to look (initially) nice to touch, once dirty consider it gone.
hi pretty (pebblestone)
mine too...when i lightly touch the pebbles, some came out!!
was under the impression this should not be the case.... mayb the contractor didnt "press" them into the cement properly..
might ask my contracyor redo that part..
your renovations completed long ago, and staying there now?
my contractor told me that they will mix the pebbles with the cement, then they will throw them into e area. befor e top parts dryoff, they will use a brush to 'wash' off the cement.
This is how they will do it so that y some areas ve more or less pebbles but they should give u an overall even look. (but upon closer look u will see some parts ve more n some will ve less).
another thing, do your pebbles wash give ppl a wet look??? cos mine do, ppl think i just clean e area.
Different contractor has different techique to do it. For mine I hv pebblewash in my toilets, my ID make sure that the tiler do a pressing technique to the spread cement/pebbles mix. So far never seen any pebbles drop off. I wash the area daily as my dog pee/poo in it.
U can choose hving gross or matt coat. Mine was matt.
Those who are interested to do a pebble wash may wish to consider that the effect might not be an even look. I'm having my foyer hacked up for the second time for a redo. This causes delays and unnecessary stress.
I do have false ceiling and shoe rack at that area too. worse still, my design told us he might need to remove my suspended shoe rack before he can hack the pebblewash. There might be a risk but we wish to take the risk lor. We leave it to him.
I do have it but my ID didn't mention the risk so I assume it's non-existent. However, I would expect him to touch up on any crack which appears. You may wish to clarify with your ID if hacking would cause cracks.
He said with e hacking will have crack n e structure (foundation for the ceiling) may become loose but not confirm cos anything will happen during e hacking. He said if we ok abt it then go for it loh, we decided not to risk it.
May I know how much u are charged for pebble flooring? We wanted a pebble flooring divider (very small) between the shower area and the rest of the toilet flooring and the contractor quoted us $680!!! Ridiculous!
for people who are being quoted too much for their pebble flooring. My contractor also quoted me $600 plus to do pebble flooring at the foyer.
but after i went to "white horse" at sungei kadut, i realised that 1 bag of pebbles(5 kg) only cost $15..enough to cover approx 10m sq.
