21.6m2 Mixed Size Pack
I do have a habit of throwing this description around a bit, but this really is one of our best sellers! This stone is a highly sought after, mysterious and beautiful limestone. It is easy to maintain, will last a lifetime and the array of tiny fossils give this stone an expensive and luxurious feel. The subtle pale grey background is brought to life with rich greys and hints of gold, making this stone a timeless classic.
From Jerusalem, it has been lightly tumbled to give the edges of the tiles a more rustic, ancient look. The material is a particularly dense stone, hard and low maintenance so it is ideal for any room in the house, even very high traffic areas. This stone is not only beautiful, but hard wearing which is what makes it one of our most popular choices.

Limestone has a very dense stone formation which is much less porous than a sandstone, thus making it ideal for both external and internal use. The surface tends to be naturally very flat and smoother than sandstone, for example. The dense nature of this stone makes it very hard wearing and easy to maintain. Limestone is reactive to acid solutions, so you should not use acid based cleaners on limestone tiles, use something specifically designed for limestone such as a neutral or mild alkaline based cleaner. Don’t let your builder use brick acid to clean mortar off your limestone slabs after pointing them up, make sure it is cleaned promptly after pointing with water. To help protect the stone and keep the colour rich and true, there are various sealants available. We advise you should always seal a limestone which is laid internally. You can get sealants which do different things, some help to intensify colour, others have a gloss finish but we think putting these glossy sealants on natural stone is sacrilege. We always recommend using a matt finish, impregnating sealer such as Lithofin Stainstop.

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 on site between 8am – 6pm to insure no re delivery charges.
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!
Our tiles are ideally laid with flexible adhesive and finished with a flexible grout. Grout is usually available in a selection of colours. If you need adhesive and grout with your order, please give us a call. Alternatively these products are readily available to buy from your local builders merchant or any home improvements store, and you will also need sealant to help protect the stone from stains in the home. We are unfortunately unable to send the sealant long distance (via courier) due to the flammable nature of it, but a natural stone being laid indoors should always be sealed. We recommend you lay the tiles, seal them once before grouting, then grout them, then seal them a second time, ensuring the tiles are clean and dry between each stage.
We do not supply laying patterns whatsoever unfortunately. The majority of our tiles are supplied in single sizes, or in a ‘coursed’ format where one side is the same on all tiles, and you lay them in rows or ‘courses’, alternating the different lengths randomly.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
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. The customer is responsible for arranging a return, and the refund is for the goods only, provided the material is in its original condition, and subject to a 20% restocking charge. We are unable to accept returns of excess stock/leftovers.

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.
