Sandstone is a sedimentary rock which is made up of large grains of minerals or rocks. These grains are much bigger than that of the other stone types which makes it naturally porous. This means that it allows water to soak into the stone which is good for drainage on large areas of patio paving however used internally it will need sealing well as will stain more easily. Despite being relatively soft for cutting it is naturally durable and weather resistant which makes it an ideal building material as it is easy to work. Hand cut sandstone (most of our patio paving) has a natural, rustic edge and a riven surface texture. Sandstone can be cleaned with most cleaning products and a stiff brush with bleach for black spots and lichen. It can be jet washed. Sealing a sandstone which is laid externally is entirely optional. It will help to protect from stains etc however it will not prevent it. Also, over time any stains will weather away as the drainage process will naturally clean it. Sealing sandstone can be seen as a wasted expense when laid externally, but it can also help to lessen the growth of algae and black spots. See more at www.pavingexpert.com
All natural stone can contain minerals, fossils and other deposits meaning each piece is completely unique. Colours and variations in texture will occur throughout the stone and can vary from batch to batch. The beauty of a natural stone is in the character of each piece.

Yes you need to be on site to sign for the delivery for security reasons. The courier cannot deliver without a signature. A builder or neighbour can sign for the delivery; it does not have to be the customer. If the delivery fails because there is no one available to sign, there are additional charges incurred to have the goods redelivered.
No. The service is an all-day booking so the delivery can arrive at any time between 8am and 6pm. You need to have someone on hand to sign for the goods – this can be a neighbour or builder. The driver is given a limited time slot to deliver within so please ensure this person is on site and contactable.
By default we put special notes on every consignment for the driver to call you enroute, however this is not a guaranteed part of their service. Generally they will, but don’t rely on this phonecall to be there to sign for it. If a driver arrives on site and there is no one around, he will then make a call, at the very latest upon arrival. If no one is available within 5 minutes he will have to leave site, so please have someone there between 8am – 6pm to insure no re delivery charges are incurred.
Here’s your crate, isn’t it great!
It is essential that you bear in mind when choosing your stone that it is a natural product. All images used to advertise are to be used as a guide only and although every attempt has been made to accurately depict each product, it would be impossible to document every colour/fossil/variation in texture that occurs in something which has been quarried from the earth. We do not sell ceramics or porcelain products; natural stone is one of nature’s wonders and you should only buy it if you can appreciate the natural variations that occur. This includes natural fault lines/veins/pits which occur as they are formed within the earth, they are not ‘cracks’. All sizes are given as accurately as possible but slight variations may occur, particularly when the stone is a hand cut product. Symbols are intended as simply rough guides and do not accurately represent the actual product in scale or appearance. For the best impression of the stone you should try to see it in the flesh where possible. Remember, the beauty of natural stone is in the subtle variation and uniqueness of each individual piece. Prices Paving can offer guidance however the suitability of a tile for certain areas of the home is purely at the discretion of the customer. Please bear in mind a honed or polished stone will be slippery when wet.
Yes we do. The prices on this website are calculated as full crates only but we do split packs so you can order any quantity you like, or combine your order with other products. The pricing structure will be different to the prices we have advertised but not by much. To calculate a specific quantity / combined order, please give us a call or send us an email.
To calculate your quantity, you simply multiply the length by the width of your area. You should also allow an additional 10% extra on top of this area which is for cuts, wastage and the odd breakage which can occur on site, or in transit. For very complex designs there may be more cuts and you may need more, or for very simple shapes you may get away with slightly less however you should always have a little extra when dealing with natural stone tiles and flags.
Everything we sell is per metre squared or per ‘m2’. This is a calculation of the area coverage. Once, in the not so distant past, someone ordered a 15m2 patio pack expecting it to be 15m x 15m (£225m2) so they were quite aghast when one patio pack showed up to find that ‘m2’ was the area coverage and the couple of hundred pounds they paid would sadly not cover 225m2. We have faith that our customers are bright as a button and couldn’t possibly make an error of this epic proportion but we just thought it was worth mentioning!
Most of our patio paving slabs have been cut with a slightly chamfered edge meaning one side is a smaller, chiselled surface area and the other side is a bigger, flatter surface. The slabs are intended to be laid with the smaller, chiselled surface on the underside, which allows more mortar to squeeze up towards the joints. This gives a better adhesion of the slabs to the ground and gives you a tighter, neater joint.
We advise you lay external slabs on a full bed of sand and wet cement mixed (rather than dot and dab technique) to support the slab throughout the underside. This avoids any weak/pressure points which can lead to cracks in extreme weather conditions.
We do not supply laying patterns whatsoever unfortunately. The majority of our patio packs are ideally laid in courses, which means each different slab size has one side which is the same length as the others (560mm usually). So the slabs are laid in rows (‘courses’) which are 560mm wide and then the different lengths are alternated randomly. We also do a four size patio pack which is laid completely randomly. Whichever patio pack you use, all slabs are made with dimensions with divisions and multiples of each other so you wouldn’t be forced to make cuts to complete the patio.

LONG DISTANCE RETURNS – Should you wish to return your order, we must be notified within 14 days from receipt of the goods. The condition should be as sold and the material must be in its original packaging. We can only accept a return of the full consignment. The customer is responsible for arranging for the goods to be returned to our premises at their cost and for ensuring they are suitably packed for transit. If pallets are returned via our courier, the cost of the transportation back to us is still payable by the buyer. Return address will be to our stock yard for which there is a separate address which we will supply. The refund would then be raised on receipt of the material returned, and you are refunded for the cost of the goods only, provided the material is in its original condition. We are unable to accept returns of excess stock/leftovers. We do not cover for consequential loss as a result of any problems associated with a delay in receipt of the goods.
LOCAL RETURNS – We must be notified within 14 days from receipt of the goods.

Prices Paving can offer guidance however the suitability of a tile for certain areas of the home is purely at the discretion of the customer.
DAMAGES/BREAKAGES – All goods must be checked upon delivery and any damages notified on the paperwork with the driver. As we use 3rd party couriers to deliver on our behalf, we must also be informed of any breakages within 3 working days of the material being delivered. All reports of damage/ faults or breakages must be supported by photographic evidence (within its original packaging as it arrived). The industry advises that 10% extra is the average that will be wasted for breakages and when making cuts, as all projects will require a certain amount of cuts.
We treat each report of damages separately at our discretion. We ask that you have a tolerance for a small number of breakages to occur in transit. In some cases we may credit for breakages that occur during transit subject to quantity and evidence. We are unable to refund/ replace breakages which equates to less than 10% of the total order. Anything more than 10% may be credited or replaced. The layout which will suit your patio/project must be decided by you and each different environment will affect the amount of cuts and therefore the resulting wastage allowance required. We do not supply any laying patterns. Minimum order is 5m2 unless the material is being collected or you send in your own courier. Minimum order for local deliveries is decided at our discretion. All prices advertised on our associated website and advertisements are subject to change at any time.
DELIVERY TERMS – Long distance deliveries are made using our external courier wagons and our crates are taken off using a tail lift and manual pump truck/trolley. The price paid covers a curb side delivery. However if a level, hard standing area i.e. tarmac/block paving/driveway is accessible then it may be possible that the delivery can be unloaded onto this area, but this is purely at the drivers discretion. If you have a loose drive such as gravel/grass/chippings, or if the area is on an incline, the pump truck is unable to move over this surface and the driver would need to leave the delivery at the nearest hard standing area for you – please call if you wish to discuss further. On the day of delivery please ensure that there is someone at the property all day to accept the delivery as the driver requires a signature to leave the goods for security reasons. Also, please inform us at the point of placing your order if there are any access restrictions for your property which may hinder the delivery. This includes any narrow access roads/lanes, low overhead cables or trees and sloped offload areas. The wagons that the haulage company use vary in size right up to 28 tonne articulated vehicles, deliveries are normally on an 18 tonne vehicle but this is not guaranteed unless a special request is put in for this sized vehicle so please be sure to make us aware of any restrictions for larger vehicles so we can mark this on the delivery booking. If the driver is unable to deliver because of an access issue, because there is nowhere suitable to offload or because there is no one on site to sign for the goods, there will be a redelivery fee for rearranging the delivery for you.
LAYING YOUR PATIO – Sometimes people choose to have a professional lay their patio however, it is something that you can complete yourself given time. It is advisable to place slabs in their final position before cementing them in place to avoid mistakes later, this is particularly important if you have a complex design.
If you choose to use random sized slabs, start by laying the slabs against your fence, house etc. and work backwards. Place the slabs on a full bed of sand and cement, not the dot and dab method. Fill the gaps using a dry mix of sand and cement or using the old fashioned hand pointing method, which uses wet sand and cement. Laying areas of setts/cobbles can look very effective but requires a little more skill than laying ordinary paving, though the same technique applies. As for maintenance a patio just needs brushing and hosing from time to time. In winter try and use a pressure hose to prevent a build-up of moss, which can become slippery. Some paving slabs are cut with a slightly chamfered edge so that the underside of the slab is slightly smaller than the top of the slab. This is how they were intended to be laid as it allows for more mortar between each slab to help them adhere, and means the joints will be tighter/smaller. There are various compounds available for pointing your slabs. These are easy to use, and they react with the air and set hard.
