The Ceramic, porcelain, and stone tile decks and patios, this section will detail these installations. For tiling patios on concrete slabs on grade, look in Floors Exterior. This section will deal with elevated tile patios and tile decks in an exterior environment. The ceramic, porcelain or stone tile can an installed over suitable substrates, in high exterior locations, including mortar beds and some cases backer board units. The placing of decks or pool decks within existing easements without first obtaining a license agreement, the release of the easement, or other written permission from the easement holder.
When do I need grading permit:
1) For any activity that disturbs soil or vegetation in the environmentally sensitive land.
2) For excavation of a hillside with a 25 percent or greater slope, or involves excavation or fill that results in a sloping grade of 25 percent or more (4 feet horizontal, 1 foot vertical), and more than 5 feet in depth or height.
3) For an activity that impacts sensitive resources in the coastal zone (see map C-720).
The grade elevation is the finished edge, or lip, around the swimming pool. In the case of a regular patio or sidewalk, you might determine the polished surface by the surrounding ground or the relationship between the surface and nearby steps, decks or driveways. The two changes currently proposed are the replacement of the word levels with points and the replacement of structure with a building, bridge, portion of a layer, or a patio cover. The Excessive a defined as being more moisture than can dry out of the assembly before that assembly freezes due to ambient temperature conditions. The trapped moisture will freeze and thaw and may cause deterioration known as spalling, in which part of the brick surface may break away. The Grade can result in the ingress of moisture, either from direct water run-off or the build-up of snow. Excess humidity present in the brick during the freeze-thaw cycles can result in spalling of the block. The Ontario Building Code and good building practice dictate that brickwork should be a minimum of 150mm (6") above grade. This requirement also applies to any level surface such as paving, patio deck or balcony. Furthermore, the ground should be contoured so that the water drains away from the wall.
