Sandstone paving is a fabulous outdoor flooring option, to be sure. It creates an indescribable atmosphere in the garden, and that unvarnished, authentic look lends itself to all kinds of different outdoor designs. Sandstone paving slabs give your family a smooth, stylish surface to enjoy, and no matter what you do in your outdoor space - dining, sunbathing, gardening - the sandstone tiles will work wonderfully well for you.
But sandstone's conspicuous charms do come with a downside. Since sandstone is a natural stone product, your slabs will have a very high porosity. Porous paving might not sound like a catastrophe waiting to happen, but remember, a high porosity makes it easy for moisture to seep into the stone and ruin that flawless natural look. This can be prevented with regular sealing, but be warned: some sealants can cause stone to become weathered and worn.
Besides, sealing your sandstone is just another tedious job to do, and it's one that you don't necessarily need to bother with. Porcelain paving - particularly our Sandstone range - can be just as organically beautiful as sandstone, and porcelain's relatively low porosity means that moisture damage shouldn't be a problem. The paving slabs will stay pretty for years, and you won't have to lift a finger!
