Balerno

Balerno is a residential area of Edinburgh, Scotland situated 8 miles (13 kilometres) south-west of the city centre, beside Currie and after that Juniper Green. Administratively, Balerno drops within the territory of the City of Edinburgh Council. Its name derives from the Scottish Gaelic Baile Àirneach, indicating "townland/town of the hawthorns". The earliest created documents of Balhernoch or Balernach are located in the late 13th century. The 18th Century brought substantial development to the area, with many new flax, snuff as well as paper mills emerging around the Water of Leith as well as its tributary, the Bavelaw Burn (proof of flax production can be seen in Harlaw Woods). The largest of these mills, Balerno Bank Paper Mill located near the centre of the old town enclosed the early 1980s. After the First World War home structure began in earnest in the location and ever since domestic stress have practically overloaded commercial and commercial ones. There was a short loophole train running over what is now the Water of Leith Walkway.

    FAQs

    how thick should a driveway concrete slab be

    Do you want to know the level of thickness a driveway concrete slab should be? Well, you are not alone! So many other home owners ask this question on a regular basis and reasonably so. In order to prevent cracks on your concrete over time, it’s crucial to ensure an even thickness across your driveway concrete. To determine the necessary thickness of your driveway concrete, there are some questions that must be answered. These includes:

    • What’s the number of vehicles you expect to have on your driveway?

    • Do you plan on parking heavy, industrial vehicles on it?

    For a standard passenger vehicle driveway, you’d have a driveway spanning 8 to 9 feet in width as well as 15 to 18 feet for double width. The thickness for this type of driveway concrete is usually 4 inches of non-reinforced pavement. Ultimately, this enables you to park everyday family cars on it without having to worry about it cracking due to the car’s weight. Also in order to prevent cracks, it’s expected that the driveway should be sloped towards the street as this would make sure that there’s a run off of water especially for areas that experience lots of flooding. In addition, there’s also the need to install joints to prevent cracking. For the standard 4 inch thick driveway, these joints should be positioned about 10 feet apart.

    Finally for parking heavy industrial vehicles, your concrete driveway is expected to be thicker in order to cope with the added weight. Typically, the concrete driveway will require a thickness of about 5 inches. The additional one inch may not sound much, but the fact is this can increase the load carrying capacity of the concrete driveway by up to 50 percent.

    How to lay a shed base with paving slabs

    Slab paving is a great material to use to create a sturdy shed base.

    Start by measuring out the area where your shed is going to be. This needs to be the size of your shed, plus about 10-20cm extra each way. Mark it out with string and pegs, make sure it’s square, and dig it down to about 6cm deep.

    Then create a sand and cement mixture and put a layer down, followed by your paving slabs. Make sure you start in one corner and use a rubber mallet and spirit level to make sure they’re as level as possible. Leave this to set and you’re ready to use your shed base.

    how to lay slabs for a driveway

    Do you know why paving slaps is a popular choice for both driveways and patios? Well, it’s the versatility! With its durability, diverse colour range, different styles as well as a timeless appeal, paving slabs happen to be a common choice amongst home owners. However, you should know that redeeming these benefits is not as simple as shovelling mortar and pressing down the paving slabs, and neither is it a case whereby you can just copy the laying process of a porcelain paving or block paving. Laying of paving slabs is on a whole other level! As a result, we’d recommend employing a trustworthy professional who can guarantee the best results the first time, especially if you lack proper training or experience to complete the task. In this step by step guide, you’ll discover more about the paving slabs laying process.

    • Prepare your paving foundation. This includes checking that your foundation is level, marking out the area to be paved with wooden pegs, removing all vegetation and top soil to a depth of about 200mm to 250mm and raking the area level to ensure and even depth.

    • Mix a layer of mortar for each paver and apply the mixed mortar onto the sub base by using the trowel.

    • Lay the slabs on top of the laying course at the lowest point of the area to be paved.

    • Take note that you may need to cut some slabs depending on the paving area size, your chosen slabs and the pattern selected.

    • Once done, brush the area clean and start jointing. The best way to do this is by applying kiln dried sand to the paved area and carefully brush into the joints with a brush.

    • Push the sands into the joints using a plate compactor

    • Check the paved area for any gaps and fill where necessary.

    Can you paint paving slabs?

    If you want to give your concrete paving slabs a new lease of life, it’s possible to paint them. This is a great option if your slabs are looking tired or you want a new look, but you don’t want to invest in new paving.

    Before you go ahead, you need to make sure that your slab paving is clean and dry. And if it’s been sealed, you’ll need to strip this off. Make sure you get a paint that’s specifically designed for the job so you get the best results.
