How to Lay Indian Sandstone Paving
Laying Indian Sandstone paving requires extra considerations. It is recommended that Indian Sandstone patio slabs should be laid on a firm, level and well-drained base to ensure long term service and stability. Firstly lay at least 75mm deep sub-base of crushed stone or hardcore and compact well with a mechanical vibrating "whacker" plate. Then spread a layer of sharp sand across the sub-base, to a compacted depth of 35mm.
For greatest stability the paving should be laid on a full mortar bed, using a wet mortar mix of 5 parts building sand to 1 part cement. To ensure the slabs "stick" to the mortar bed it is recommended that SBR Bond is used on the underside of the slabs. The slabs should then be pointed using a professional jointing product such as Romex or Jointex. Both are frost and de-icing salt resistant, weed free, abrasion resistant, environmentally friendly, quick, cost effective and permanent joint fixing solutions.
Sealing (optional) should be done after 6 weeks to allow for “weathering” in and to not seal any ground minerals in.
