INDIAN SANDSTONE PAVING
Indian Sandstone paving stones are ideal for your patio and garden as they are hard-wearing, weather well, inexpensive and easy to lay. Sandstone is a very stable product and one of the best suited natural stones for use on patios, paths and driveways.
Sandstone is a porous material and comes in a great deal of colours, from white to red and brown, and is composed essentially of cemented grains of sand. Sandstone has a granular texture and is the second most abundant of all sedimentary rock, shale being the first. In addition to quartz, sandstone may consist of sand sized particles of calcite, gypsum or various iron compounds.
Sandstone comes in many colours, but the most common colours are tan, brown, yellow, red, grey and beige. Sandstone is a classic sedimentary rock that forms from the cementing together of sand sized grains forming a solid rock and is therefore porous.
Fine-cut stone has a varied thickness ranging between 11mm and 22mm and calibrated stone has a nominal fixed thickness of between 20 to 22mm. Sandstone is also available with an antique finish where the stone is subtly aged by a tumbling action with pebbles. Sandstone paving slabs are frost resistant and will weather in well.
