What do you guys use for screed rails?
We use one inch steel pipes. Just dig a shallow trench and set them to height, screed, and then fill in the trench with stone after you remove the pipe.
u just set the pipes in the ditch? do u stake them down at all?
Why would you stake them?
pvc works as well. 1 or 1.5"
For pavers or walls??
No PVC for us - too flexible. 1" steel for us.
I use the fence top rails - they are 1-1/4" (cheap-ridged) and have a fluted end
that slides into the next rail - so you can setup a good run
We also use 1" steel because they don't flex. Used to use pvc and realized that we couldn't keep it consisently flat.
It all depends on the job, we use a rail system for retaining walls called speed base. We also have a rail system for large paver jobs that screeds gravel and sand. Smaller paver jobs we use 1' iron pipes.
