SANDSTONE PAVING NATURAL – WHAT TO EXPECT
Natural sandstone is a traditional look and a very popular one. It has a riven texture which is naturally formed, at the point it was split from the rock. Colour variation is a feature of sandstone and to be expected if you choose this product. We believe that it is part of the charm of sandstone.
- Large tapestry of colours available – please see laying advice below
- Each stone is unique
- The calibration of this is 22mm thick (cheaper products are often thinner)
- Each stone is unique – the colour and textural variations require consideration when laying
- The calibration (dimensions) will vary more than in other stones – see laying advice
Natural sandstone needs more consideration than other stone at the point of laying. This is due to the natural colour and textural variations mentioned above. Natural sandstone needs to be worked with to create the patio that you want – spread the colours and textures thoughtfully so that you make the most out of the stone and you will have an outstanding traditional area. A skilled landscaper will be able to do this for you.
We recommend using slurry/primer/glue on the backs of the slabs when laying, which we stock.
