Topic: Query about the slab plastering

Hi,

I have the below query about my house slab plastering work. I searched internet and did not find any information.

Slab is done and for the plastering to the slab flooring,the builder said he is going to do the below way

First lay bricks side by side for entire slab and then fill the gaps with sand,cement and then on top of it he is going to do plastering. He said this way it helps to cool the house.

is this correct way of doing it? Does it really has any advantages/disadvantages

Plese advise.

Post subject: Finishing the Roof Slab

Hi Vamsi:
From what I have understood from your question, I am assuming that you are asking about finishing the roof of your house. 
While there are various methods to finish the roof depending upon one's taste and budget, I will be talking about the most common medium i.e. brick tiles for roof.
After applying a proper water-proofing coat over the RCC slab, cover the slab with mud with proper sloping into rain water pipe(s), lay 1" thick layer of wet mud mixed with bhusa/phuska/tudi and fix brick tiles over this layer with wet mud. Finally use cement+sand mix to teep the groves of these tiles. 
I hope it helps.
