The majority of our sandstone tiles are for exterior use only although certain varieties can be used as part of kitchen and conservatory designs. Sandstone is a hard wearing natural stone, traditionally used in the construction industry. Its distinctive natural appearance and hard wearing nature makes it an excellent flooring option. Sandstone tile slabs can add character to any design. Tiles from our sandstone range are acquired for both residential and commercial properties.
Sandstone Tiles for Durable Floors
Hard wearing sandstone tiles are suitable for high traffic areas throughout interiors, which includes busy shopping centre entrance areas. This stone is cut into thick slabs which provide floors with a high level of resilience. This durability also translates to its use as an exterior option. Sandstone can prove resilient to weathering when it is used as an outdoor patio. In gardens sandstone is combined with different natural materials including wooden features and also other varieties of stone. Sandstone provides gardens with strong and sturdy exterior flooring. The rock finish provides a high level of slip resistance even when the stone is wet. For added protection you can apply sealant to sandstone tiles which helps to provide a less porous material.
Sandstone tiles or pavers as they are also referred to are popular choices for patios and driveways. To emphasise the rustic character of sandstone they tend to be installed in a certain way, and not necessarily the traditional grid formation. Popular patterns include a running bond, or brick effect, which formats tiles in alternate rows, like a brick wall. Sandstone is also applied as part of a French Pattern Set and herringbone style. For interior areas adhesive and grout are used to secure the tiles. In outdoor designs the quantity required means adhesive and grout is not always viable and wet sand is often used as an alternative.
