Best Priced Indian Stone Paving
Our connections over in India supply us with beautiful varieties of sandstone paving. It is a hugely popular export and ships to many countries around the globe. The majority of the sandstone comes from an area in India called Rajasthan where there are so many more varieties than can be found in the rest of the world. Clearly the indians used their natural stone for not just paving projects but for many different uses inside and outside. Popular names like Mint Fossil, Raj Green, Kandla Grey and Rippon Buff and now common used names for patio slabs all around the world. Sandstone, even though it is a layered stone, can be used in a variety of thicknesses for indoor and outdoor flooring tiles. India over the centuries has built temples, palaces and significant cultural symbols with stone mined from their country, not to mention Indian buildings like offices, hotels and monuments. When you buy indian stone, you are getting a connection to the stonework history of a country that has been around for far longer that we have and will continue to be endorsed by the very country it comes from for an eternity.
High-Quality Indian Stone
Another popular material to come out of India is their limestone paving. The most popular being the Kota Black, again from the Rajastan region but the city of Kota. With a more orange peel type surface texture and a almost acrylic looking edge the limestone paving are very different to the sandstones. Many customers tend to seal their black limestone as it does have a tendency to turn lighter overtime. There are many different sealants on the market, one even specifically to bring the blackness back to this paving, called Slate and Limestone Sealant.
How much is Indian Stone?
How long is a piece of string? Its a common misconception that people think Indian stone is one product, well technically this is partly true as it comes from the ground of country but that's pretty much where it ends. There are various colours which affect price due to where they are located as some quarries are only accessible for certain times fo the year. The finish of the stone also affects the price riven or natural paving being the cheapest with honed or polished paving being the most expensive. Other factors that recently have massively changed the price of Indian stone is fluctuations in the currency, the Rupee which tracks the US Dollar and also shipping rates which hit $8000 in August 2021 when they were more like $1000 2 years prior to this.
What different finishes can I get in natural stone?
The main finishes of Indian stone paving are riven sandstone slabs or natural finish, tumbled or aged, textured or sand-blasted and polished or honed. The riven is the most popular and best priced, where the other finishes are suited to more niche homes and gardens. As the contemporary landscaped garden is becoming fashionable the honed finish has become a favourite whereas the tumbled finish is very popular in more traditional gardens with an aged appearance. We have only just mentioned the paving slabs side of the market, there are more specialist finishes which include natural Indian stone walling, paving focal points such as patio circles and then finishing touches like natural stone steps.
