Why Choose Us?

All our Products are ethically source and unlike other suppliers who risk purchasing form opening auction we only purchase direct from quarries. On average our yard contains over 15,000m2 of stock at any one time. Within our stock we have a range of 20 different colours with either Sawn, Hand-dressed or Tumbled edges in either 22mm calibrated thickness or 25mm-35mm natural thickness.

The saying “you get what you pay for” is very applicable when it comes to purchasing natural stone material, in our years of experience when a price from other suppliers seems too good to be true there will usually be a catch somewhere and that catch is usually one or more of the below:

Size - notable being irregular sizes for example 56cm x 84cm, 56cm x28cm these have no common multiple and therefore will be very difficult to create a pattern and will result in a lot of cutting, they are known as 56 series.

Colours - With the stone being natural, colour variation will be present however poor quality paving will have very extreme colour difference like dark slabs in with light mint colours. On the other hand, there may hardly any colour difference within the slabs – for example just a single shade of brown within the autumn brown range. This means you miss out on the charm of natural stone. We strive to achieve a beautiful colour pallet within each range.

Thickness - most advertise at 20mm - 30mm but will have a plus or minus 5mm in there terms meaning that when the goods arrive at mostly 15mm they will not replace unless you pay the return postage and 15mm is really too thin for patio usage.

Surface Finish - Cheap paving will most definitely have a poor surface quality very riven or flaky.

Hidden Costs - A lot of suppliers advertise a cheap square meter price of say £10.50 per m2 but only if you buy a whole full box which means you ultimately end up paying for stone you don’t want. The £10.50 is often only 5% of the price and the amount you have paid will have to be multiplied buy 20. Delivery costs are often will be extremely high with suppliers making a margin on the delivery as well which ultimately ends up giving a total m2 price of nearer £20 per square meter for an inferior product. Don't be fooled by the sight of what looks like a great price. Make sure you check thoroughly – tons of paving are very difficult to return!

Operating from Off-site Premises - We have all our goods brought back to our Peterborough Yard, where we can check all our goods before removing any damages, a lot of suppliers now operate from a port warehouse to save the costs for delivering to their yards. Although this reduces the overall cost of the material it then leaves the stock to be loaded by third parties who have no experience in stone quality and who will NOT remove damages slabs before dispatch.
