Indian Sandstone

Whether you require that small Indian Sandstone feature in a sheltered spot in your garden, or wish to undertake a much larger project than that, you will find a huge array of stone paving to choose from. We have lots of ideas to help you express your personality and lifestyle, and reflect the character of your home in a truly individual way.

Natural Stone Driveways

We use natural sandstone paving products. These paving materials are well suited to the British climate and are a highly stable and versatile frost resistant product. Once weathered, this particular material has a natural appearance and mimics many of the qualities of reclaimed York stone, providing a stunning and affordable alternative for your patio, path or driveway. Hand cut and naturally riven for a more rustic appearance.

Sealing

The image depicts an imprint concrete driveway that has been sealed to protect the surface and enhance the colour of the concrete.

It has been valued for its strength, durability, and insulation properties. It can be cut, cleft, or sculpted to shape as required, and the variety of natural stone types, textures, and colors provide an exceptionally versatile range of building materials. The porosity and makeup of most stone does, however, leave it prone to certain types of damage if unsealed.

Staining is the most common form of damage. It is the result of oils or other liquids penetrate deeply into the capillary channels and deposit material that is effectively impossible to remove without destroying the stone.

Salt Attack occurs when salts dissolved in water are carried into the stone.

The two commonest effects are efflorescence and spalling. Salts that expand on crystallization in capillary gaps can cause surface spalling.
