Tip No.4: Rebates

CORRECT SIZE AND POSITIONING IS IMPORTANT TO ENSURE A GOOD FIT FOR YOUR WINDOWS AND DOORS, HERE WE HAVE TWO QUICK TIPS TO MAKE THIS EASY.

Firstly, cut down the MAXRaft perimeter profiles to the correct height and width for your rebate prior to installing the steel. This will allow you to obtain a nice, clean cut of the polystyrene making it easy to fit the rebate.

Secondly, while you can use the MAXRaft perimeter profiles as a base height for the rebate, always check the final rebate with a laser level for height and off the profiles/bracing for the horizontal dimension into the slab. This will ensure that the rebate is not affected by slight undulations in the ground causing the perimeter profiles to rise/fall from the actual finished floor level.
