NEW! European Premium Grade Bluestone Pavers & Tiles
Get in quick! First shipment sold out after a week!
European Bluestone pavers and tiles are specifically aimed at those people who do not want to purchase inferior CHINESE BLUESTONE. As European Bluestone is internationally recognised to be of a higher caliber of stone. It is similar in colour and texture to Australian Bluestone with a sawn surface finish achieving a higher non slip level.This is a mid coloured bluestone and looks great when grouted with a light grey/neutral coloured grout BUT for those of you seeking a darker shade ie charcoal grey we recommend grouting with our charcoal grey stone grout. You can see the effect of the 2 different grouts in one of the pictures above.
We recommend the following:
12mm Thick: Pavers should be laid onto a concrete slab, great for balconies or decks where overall weight of the installed product is important.
20mm Thick: Pavers can be laid as above or onto a compacted road base into a wet slurry of sand and cement.
30mm Thick: Pavers can be laid as both above or onto a compacted road base into a dry sand bed, great for tiling over easements or where you require water permeation to occur for drainage.
European Bluestone tiles and pavers can be sealed for peace of mind, to ensure bluestone stays in pristine condition. It's highly recommended particularly in areas where there may be high spillage to protect the lustre of the bluestone tiles and pavers. If you choose not to seal your tiles, make sure you clean up spills immediately to avoid staining the tiles. Use only a penetrating invisible type sealer (no colour change) similar to Tasman Chemicals STONE SHIELD and ALWAYS follow the sealer manufacturers instructions when applying. We stock a FULL range of suitable sealers. European Bluestone like Australian bluestone will have occasional light saw marks and will have naturally occuring organic catspaw (covering between 5%-25% of any tiles surface). However, if you'd like your bluestone completely without cat's paw, we can arrange to get them taken out for an additional cost.(approx 40% extra cost) NB. This material without catspaw will be lighter in colour. We do not recommend acid washing ANY natural stone as it can lead to surface burns and discoloration where the acid has reacted adversely with minerals present in the stone.

Highly recommended around BBQ areas or when the blue stone tiles are installed as internal floor tiles. Bluesetone pavers and tiles can be sealed with an invisible penetrating sealer to assist in the easy ongoing clean up of the stone pavers. We recommend sealing your Bluestone pavers with Tasman's STONE SHIELD ( invisible no colour change penetrating seraler) This is also available at Stone & Slate Discounts. Cleaning prior to sealing we recommend a high pressure wash only, please ensure that you keep the jet nozzle around 250mm-300mm above the pavers at all times. DO NOT use a colour enhancing sealer on your bluestone as they tend to highlite any saw marks not visible to the naked eye and are generally harder to use and can be problematic.Cleaning:
Do not use Hydrochloric acid for clean up as this can cause minerals present in the stone to react adversely.Maintenance:
Just sweep when needed. Bluestone responds well to high pressure cleaning with a domestic machine, please keep the nozzle about 300mm minimum away from face of the bluestone pavers and tiles. A solution of mild detergent and water can be applied prior to pressure cleaning.
