Modern Contrasting Facade

Project QuickStats

Location Ryde, New South Wales
Cost $11,107
Stone Colour  3mm Charcoal
Total Area 57 square meters
Date Installed 22-12-2020

Heres a great little video of another StoneSet Overlay Paving Driveway which was installed 22-12-2020 over a new concrete surface and council crossover.

A very clean lined new build facade was looking to increase its modern frontage with a boldly contrasting charcoal 3mm mix. The video shows how the installation crew had to overcome a number of factors on site to ensure a clean installation.

With the views come the slopes

As the home was built on a hill with a significant slope, multiple drains had been provisioned for the street and on the property. StoneSet has to prepare these joins carefully to ensure the weak points do not lead to cracking, with years of vehicular traffic every day.

The natural stone finish is also ideal for non slip properties as the porous nature of the stone ensures puddles do not form and algal growth does not take hold, as can happen with hillside runoff and constant dripping on non porous surfaces like concrete.

Finally, when meeting the levels of the existing public pathway and steps at the crossover, the team were required to undertake significant grinding and chasing out of the existing concrete base.

StoneSet ensured a 16mm topping could be applied over the new section of concrete (shown with hairline cracks in the video) whilst the surface also met flush and continued the walkway, without any risk of trip hazards at the sizes of the driveway – where the steps and paths met.
