It’s incredible to think you can use the same authentic materials that make up the Taj Mahal in your Indian sandstone paving project. Originating in the Rajasthan area of India, Indian sandstone has garnered an ever increasing share of the stone paving market. Indian paving stones are comprised of bits of silicants, calcites, clay and quartz, among other types of rock. These ingredients combine over time with the aid of wind and water to provide a wide variance of colour and markings. This makes it a desirable product for dramatic walkways, floors and patios.
Indian sandstone paving products have been used for centuries in India to construct temples and palaces that are both breathtaking in look and durable in construction. Milled from the beds of long dried rivers and lakes, each piece offers a unique blend of colour that makes every project an original work of art. Indian paving stones are milled for a fraction of the price of traditional stone products in Ireland. This makes them an attractive option when they are obtained from an ethical source.
Since Indian paving stone is a composite material, meaning it is made up of many different types of rock and mineral, it’s a bit softer on the edges and slightly less tolerant to heavy weight. As long as the sand bed preparations are made correctly, Indian sandstone paving is great for everything except drive paths. The weight of an auto can cause cracking of the stones over time. Garden walks, pool surrounds, statue bases and patios come to life when using Indian sandstone. The natural flowing colours of the rock provide the individual flair for your project. No one piece looks the same, yet they mould together in beautiful harmony.
