Sandstone paving Installation:
As with all of our natural stone products, we install indian sandstone paving using the highest quality workmanship. The sandstone can be lay at 90 degrees or 45 degrees to your house depending on your taste and budget. We can offer you free advice on which colour and style would best suit your property. All our natural stone is lay with wet sand and cement mortar and jointed with wet mortar to ensure a durable long lasting job that will stand the test of time. This method of laying and jointing is more time consuming than inferior methods, but it ensures that you will have a low maintenance patio free from weeds for years to come.
Sandstone installation steps
1. The first step is always preparation. After careful examination of the existing ground levels and drainage, we commence the preparation work. This involves digging the ground to the required depth. Following the digging we install drainage as needed.
2. Installation of the base – the depth of base required will be decided depending on the existing ground conditions, required final level and the type and amount of traffic the area is predicted to experience. Each layer of base stone is carefully installed and compacted using a heavy plate compactor. The compactor or wacker plate compacts the stone to create a really solid base for your sandstone driveway or patio.
3. Laying the sandstone – once the base has been installed and compacted vigorously, we are ready to lay the sandstone. Each slab is lay carefully on a full bed of wet mortar. We lay all of the slabs this way including the cut slabs. Once they are all lay, we fill the joints using a wet sand and cement (mortar) mix. This mix sets solid and prevents weeds growing and strenghtens the entire area further preventing sinking.
The strong compacted base, coupled with mortar laying and further strenghtened by mortar jointing is the strongest combination available to create a solid patio or driveway that wont crack, sink or hold water for decades to come.
