What is 'Square Edge Paving'?
Our natural stone paving is sourced from quarried in India. Within these quarries, the paving slabs are cut from large pieces of rock to then be cut down by hand to size. Square Edge paving is finished slightly differently; instead of a hand-split, fettled edge, the edges have been machine sawn. This process ensures a clean, smooth finish to the edges and guaranteed consistency across the paving stones. This helps create a smart and modern patio.
What is the Difference Between Limestone and Sandstone Paving?
There are many similarities between Limestone and Sandstone Paving due to both of them deriving from Indian stone quarries.
One benefit of choosing Limestone Paving is they are the more cost-effective, but keep in mind that depending on the colour, they may require more maintenance.
As the more cost-friendly option, Limestone is slightly more brittle when compared to Sandstone. But keep in mind that once Limestone has been laid, the durability will be the same as Sandstone Paving.
An aspect to take note of is that Limestone will naturally fade over time, whether or not Sealer is used. And this eventual fading does require some upkeeping to retain the original colour as long as possible. Maintaining the original colours in Sandstone Paving is slightly easier.
There are many varieties available for Sandstone and Limestone Paving. Sandstone is available in weathered and sawn options; and Limestone Paving are available in Square Edge and also comes in the weathered variety.
To give the colouring on Aqua Blue Limestone Paving its best chance, they need to be sealed. On the other hand, sealing is only optional for Sandstone Paving.
What is the Difference Between Limestone and Porcelain Paving?
There are many differences between Limestone and Porcelain paving; the major difference being how they are created. Limestone, as we stated earlier, is a naturally formed stone whereas porcelain Paving is manmade stone and is therefore available in many different colours and finishes.
If you want your garden to have a rustic, muted aesthetic, Limestone is the best option. But if you want to go for something more unique and vibrant, we suggest you choose Porcelain Paving.
As you know, Limestone will weather as time passes, with the colour and the surface texture wearing away slightly. On the other hand, Porcelain, due to the fact that its manufactured, it retains its colours and finishes over time.
It is important to know that there is a little bit more maintenance involved with Limestone Paving, because it does require jet washing every 6 months. Upkeeping Porcelain Paving is much easier as it only requires a hose down every 6 months to keep away any dirt and debris.
