Sandstone Pavers Benefits
Sandstone pavers have many great benefits. First, they are easy to install. Second, they are durable and versatile. Third, they come in a wide range of dimensions. Fourth, an economic benefit is that they last a lifetime, for sandstone is very hard wearing and ages very well.
Sandstone pavers are porous stones. They allow the percolation of water, which means that they can store large amounts of water. They can withstand time and wet weather, and still look classical, two very important benefits!
Sandstone pavers are commonly used in the landscaping field, because of their rich and natural appeal. Sandstone pavers can be applied to create walkways throughout the garden, flooring for a patio or balcony, and can also be applied to create unique wall features.
Sandstone pavers are perfect for pool surroundings or pool coping. They are also a popular material when it comes to cladding and veneering! Sandstone pavers can create a natural earthy look or an elegant formal appearance. This versatility is the reason why they are so widely applied!

MAINTENANCE and CLEANING
Sealing your Sandstone Pavers is highly recommended for the protection against staining. If your Sandstone Pavers are not sealed, you may incur difficulty in removing stains completely. You should consult your manufacturer about information regarding the best type of sealer for your particular application of Sandstone Pavers. This is important because there’s so many sealers available on the market today that you want to be sure to get the right one for your application!
When cleaning your Sandstone Pavers be sure to stay away from solutions that contain alkaline, acid, ammonia and bleach. The reason for this is that these cleaning solutions may break down your sealer, and in turn affect its repellency. It is recommended to use a neutral cleaner that is specially formulated for such natural stones as Sandstone.
Following is a routine cleaning guide:
First sweep or dust mop up any dirt or debris off your Sandstone Pavers.
Then prepare the chosen cleaning solution according to the labeled instructions; you may need to dilute the solution in hot or cold water.
Now apply the cleaning solution to your Sandstone Pavers using a mop, sponge or scrubbing machine.
Lastly, rinse and wipe off cleaning solution with clean water.
