You must use your mastic quite a lot; I tend to find that mine has usually gone off when I retrieve it from my "mastic draw". :(


It must be an older generation thing (lol) same thing happens in my workshop. You don’t know fun till you’ve cleared a nozzle of cured sealant with a blunt screwdriver

I use an electrical screwdriver or sometimes a screw and an impact driver!

When you have resins that have dried you just throw away the nozzle and fit a spare as they dry harder than concrete. In fact I have used it where I've killed wall plugs. Fill the hole with resin, push in a screw, wipe excess. The screw will break before the resin gives way.

Also fitted guttering to the workshop and channeled it downhill from it to avoid future flooding.

I realise that I always seem to be "glass half empty" comments Cav, but will the (sensibly diverted) rainwater water not potentially give you very icy path entrance at wintertime.?

To be fair, it has a relatively good amount of drainage there and we do use that access way much. The garden drainage is about 2m away in that corner of the garden.

I'd be more concerned about our porcelain slabs anyway, they're horrific.

We only had a porcelain kitchen floor once. Look great, but never again.

It's great in the summer, it never gets too hot for barefoot, unlike the astroturf

Because hot ground surfaces vs wet ground surfaces is your main concern in the UK (rain) (giggle)

I’m just teasing mate, it all looks fantastic
