Natural Stone Characteristics:
All natural stone products are unique and will vary in colour and texture, often showing distinctive markings, minor imperfections and may include mineral deposits such as iron and quartzite. Sizes are nominal and may vary. Some paving manufacturers include the pointing allowance in the individual slab sizes whereas others include the pointing allowance in the overall pack coverage. The product images shown are as accurate as photographic processes allow and may appear differently in accordance with lighting conditions and screen calibration in addition to the natural variation occurring between batches. Images may not be a true representation of a particular product size, use or laying pattern. Descriptions provided offer a combination of the manufacturer’s and our own opinion of the product’s characteristics and features.
Sandstone is a type of sedimentary rock formed of gritty sand grains and is available in a variety of colours.
– Antique, Tumbled Sandstone Antique This style of sandstone has been through a secondary process to make it appear aged and weatherworn. This process smoothes the surface to provide a more gentle riven texture and slightly rounds the edges of the stone to give the appearance of a stone that is much older than it actually is making it suitable for period homes where a new stone would look out of place. It is often produced in a calibrated thickness where the variation in the thickness of the slab is kept to a minimum to simplify the laying process.
Sandstone is available in a wide range of colours, some subtle and some vivid. The ranges comprise of a selection of core colours combined with subtle contrasting shades, and the balance of shades can vary between batches of even the same stone due to different seams in the stone quarry occurring over time. The colour intensity increases when the paving is wet. Most brands offer the same range of colours with slightly different names. BE AWARE that not ALL sandstone is the same quality – some unknown brands may not have been tested for suitability in the UK climate and may crack during cold weather.
