Natural sandstone paving from AWBS
With stunning variations of natural tones and textures, sandstone is a popular choice for patios and paving, offering a hardwearing and cost-effective solution, with a lovely rustic feel.
Sandstone forms when grains of sand are compacted together over significant periods of time. While not as hard as granite, sandstone is readily available, highly durable, and easy to cut and work with, which is why it’s been used in construction for centuries.

Things to consider when choosing sandstone paving
Like a lot of natural stone paving, sandstone is porous and will absorb moisture, which means it can stain if the surface isn’t sealed and can be susceptible to frost. However, this can be avoided if the paving is laid on solid mortar, not mortar pads, and pointed correctly using Geo-fix, to prevent water ingress from the edges. The texture of the natural sandstone paving also means it can be slippery when wet, but most of the sandstone paving we supply has a riven finish, which provides grip as well as complementing the warm rustic appearance of this beautiful stone.
At AWBS, we aim to always deliver products manufactured to the highest possible standards, and our natural sandstone paving is no exception. Please contact us for information about our range of Indian sandstone paving products.
