Like sand, indian sandstone can be any colour, but is often made up of any combination of the following colours: browns, yellows, reds, greys and tans. Indian sandstone paving slabs are resistant to weathering, but still remains very easy to work with.

Indian Sandstone generally has a uniform texture and it is somewhat soft for a stone product, which means it is versatile and can have a number of applications. Its low absorption rate, high compression strength and it’s aesthetically pleasing appearance has resulted in it being the most popular stone to work with UK wide.

It makes a great garden paving material because it is highly weather resistant and its ability to maintain its age and appearance over time is tremendous. Notably, sandstone was the material used in the Pyramids of Egypt, the Taj Mahal and even the White House. The stone really does last the ages!

FAQs - Indian Sandstone Paving

Does Indian Sandstone Keep It's Colour?

Yes, but slowly. Indian Sandstone that is exposed to the elements (frost, rain, UV light), can slowly fade over time. Some prefer the natural fade of Indian sandstone as it ages, as it appears more natural. But it's important to know it will fade slowly.

However, this happens over multiple years. You won't come back from work one day to a different colour patio!

Will My Indian Sandstone Paving Slabs Turn Green?

This is usally caused by algae, and is a completely natural and unavoidable for all types of paving.

Green can appear between slabs if the joints get dirt in them which enables algae to grow.

It's important to regularly clean your patio and products such as algae remover are readily available.

How Long Will Indian Sandstone Last?

There is no expiration date on Indian Sandstone paving! Thin, poorly installed slabs can rock and crack after a couple of years. But good quality, well installed Indian Sandstone can last over 30 years.

Does Indian Sandstone Scratch Easily?

If you put enough force into it, yes. But scratches are much less visible than other materials, and very rarely permanent.

After a bit of water, the chalky residue visible after a scratch will wash away and you will no longer notice any marks.

Does Indian Sandstone Absorb Water?

Yes. Indian Sandstone is a porous stone and as a result will absorb moisture.

That is no bad thing however, as it provides your patio with ample draining and prevents surface water from building up and staining your patio.
