Looking After Your Paving
To ensure the colour remains looking as it did when you laid it, you can use Azpects Easy Seal, this also acts as a protection layer against the weather and any spilages that occur on the paving.
We recommend jet washing your Sandstone Patio every 6 months to ensure it's kept clean and free of any debris.
What is the Difference Between Sandstone and Limestone Paving?
Both Sandstone and Limestone Paving are naturally derived from stone quarries in India, and are very similar.
However, Sandstone is more durable than Limestone; Limestone being slightly more brittle.
Original colours can be maintained for Sandstone Paving, whereas certain Limestone colours will naturally fade, even if Sealer has been used.
We offer more variety of paving options for Sandstone paving, including sawn options that come complete with a smoother finish.
Some of the Limestone paving must be sealed to ensure the colour is maintained, whereas sealing your Sandstone Paving is optional.
What is the Difference Between Sandstone and Porcelain Paving?
Sandstone and Porcelain Paving are completely different in both senses; Sandstone is naturally formed stone and Porcelain Paving is manufactured stone with a variety of different finishes.
Sandstone is great for gardens wanting a natural look and feel, Porcelain is great for modern gardens wanting to have a unique, artistic look to them.
Sandstone will naturally weather over time, with the surface texture and colour changing slightly. Porcelain, however, will keep its colours and finishes due to its manmade nature.
Sandstone paving has a little more maintenance involved, as it will need jet washing every 6 months, whereas Porcelain paving just requires a hose down every 6 months to remove debris and dirt.
