Smooth Indian Sandstone is an ideal choice for domestic and commercial use. Extracted from quarries, with natural textures and formations, the stone is then cut down then sawn to get the desired smooth finish.
As this is natural stone, it is very common to get natural imperfections within the stone such as chips or dimples on the slabs and occasional saw marks on the surface from the process the stone goes through. These are perfectly normal in this type of product and does not impact the performance of the paving.
Variations in tones and colours throughout the paving is also a common feature as well as veining which adds to the appeal of the slabs.
If you are looking for a more uniform paving without the imperfections then we recommend looking at our Vitrified Porcelain range.
Samples are available to purchase on the dropdown menu of each product.
Natural Sandstone is a highly porous material which if laid incorrectly can cause problems overtime.
Reflective Staining is a common occurrence in Smooth Indian Sandstone which has been laid incorrectly. Laying the slabs on a bed which has been ‘spotted’ or not using a SBR cement slurry primer on the bottom of the slabs prior to laying are the most common reasons why this can occur in Smooth Indian Sandstone.
When laying this paving the slabs must be laid on a full bed of sand and cement mortar. The slab must make full contact with the mortar and should never be ‘spotted’ by just dotting the mortar. ‘Spotting’ the slabs can also cause gaps in the mortar under the slabs which can create a weakness in the slabs.
Creating a slurry with our SBR Cement Slurry Primer and adding this to the back of the slabs prior to laying not only helps with adhering the slabs to the mortar but can also help to prevent Reflective Staining.
All natural sandstone paving requires sealing once laid to protect the slabs however we recommend testing all sealers on a small, inconspicuous area first.
Avoid using any acid-based products as this can ruin the stone.
