Marbling Roof Terrace Walls- Didim

We have a large open top terrace which offers little protection re water ingress. Some neighbours have recently had the top of their walls fitted with marble ( with small overhang each side). Pricing has been remarkably varied and I just wonder whether anybody has had this done and can guide me to a reliable and fair price supplier/ fitter for this job.

Hello Sybil - have you tried these people ... Let?s Group ? For all your needs in Didim and Akbuk ? Voices Newspaper ... sounds good to me! And from Voices Newspaper in 2007 ... Marble from Didim, Turkey, is being exported to several European countries by Star Adalilar Estate Agency's Mustafa Calgir. Homeowners in England, Holland, Finland, France, and Germany are using the marble to give their dwellings the look unique to Turkey's resort areas. According to Calgir, "The demand has, so far, been quite significant and we could even [have] a shortage if the demand keeps up." x Angela in Side x

Re: Marbling Roof Terrace Walls- Didim

Just make sure you have drip grooves either side , otherwise the water will run under the marble and down the walls

Is it expensive Ted and is it worth the expense? I suppose anything to limit water going into exposed concrete walls is worth it?

Re: Marbling Roof Terrace Walls- Didim

If you have an open terrace I cant see it doing much good, most of the water ingress occurs at the `joint` between floor and wall, assuming the tiling has been done properly.

Re: Marbling Roof Terrace Walls- Didim

We did both our houses with white marble at 30mm from memory and as Ted says a good drip groove is a must plus a reasonable overhang, at our first house some of it was put on window cills, would have been better being fitted prior to the windows going in but still did a good job, most was put around a roof terrace wall, at the other house we put it around a large full roof terrace wall, more for the look as we had no water problems there, its also much easier to clean than painted concrete. In terms of cost it was a long time ago but I recall it was very cheap.

Re: Marbling Roof Terrace Walls- Didim

We did our steps, three staircases about 21 steps altogether, but we had the marble chap lay the marble upside down. Now that really threw them, what are these foreigners up to now? Why do they want slightly rough looking marble when it can look oh so nice and shiny?
It was great decision, very practical for us and the dogs in the rain and snow and looks great too.

Re: Marbling Roof Terrace Walls- Didim

I will give you a good example why. During a storm last winter one of the sat dishes broke off from the top of the terrace wall. It left a gap which rain water entered leading to an eventual small flood in the room directly underneath. A marble plinth on the top of that wall would have prevented that ! By definition - any barrier to rain on walls is a positive surely.

It is important, and not often done here in Turkey - you should be able to see it on your external window sills. Another issue here is cables on external walls, which should also have a "drip loop" otherwise water comes down the cable and right into the wall - again, not always done here.

If you want more info Google "cable drip loop" and " "sill drip groove" - lots of pictures and explanations available.
