Cementing verges


Cementing the verges has now begun.

See how the verges were cemented in this short YouTube video:

Finishing the cementing.

All this work results in a very neat job.

This is the raised verge at the front of the house.

The back of the garage verges completed.

The fourth and final decoration added.

Cementing the big verge on the front of the house.


Each tile is carefully fitted.
