Indian Stone Paving Lancashire - A Beautiful Quality Finish

Indian stone paving Lancashire wide is becoming much more popular for driveways, patios, and pathways. Indian sandstone is a natural imported stone that is used in landscaping design projects. Merchants supply it in a range of colours, textures, and slab or flag sizes at a reasonable price when compared to other natural stones.

This makes Indian stone a versatile paving product for driveways, paths, and patios. However, when installing natural Indian stone paving North East way, contractors must take care. Indian stone can be porous and some laying methods used in landscaping a driveway, path, or patio, such as using mortar dabs, can 'bleed through' the slabs or flags. This results in paving that appears patchy. Professional paving contractors will lay all natural Indian sandstone slabs on a full wet mortar mix - like a bed of mortar - after brushing the back of the slab with PVA or cement wash to seal it. This also stops water getting under the paving and freezing, which can cause the slab to 'pop out' of the driveway, patio, or path. A specialist paving contractor will carry out pointing, which means filling the gaps between the different slabs or flags in the paving. For natural Indian stone, many paving companies recommend filling the joints with a mortar mix, though others use a specialist air curing pointing compound. Indian sandstone can be offered as an alternative to other types of paving, such as the popular plain or patterned concrete driveways North East firms have to offer.
