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.
Will I be given a time slot for delivery?
Get Full Details »
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.
Can the driver call me enroute?
Get Full Details »
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.

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.
