Choosing the right paver

When selecting your pavers, there are many factors to take into account.

Firstly, let us take a look at the different types of pavers that are available today.

Natural Stone Pavers

Natural stone pavers come in a large variety of types and sizes. Our two biggest sellers are Travertine and Himalayan Sandstone. Granite pavers, limestone pavers, and basalt pavers are also proving to be popular.  We also stock Porphyry cobblestones pavers and random sized flagstones. We supply a comprehensive collection of all types of natural stone, with large quantities of good quality travertine stocked in our yard in various sizes and colours. Natural stone pavers can vary greatly in appearance as well as quality and there is a good choice when it comes to your situation, be it a patio or a pool surround.

Caring for your pavers

Sealing pavers is always optional, but is highly recomended .  Not all sealers change the appearance or leave a sheen. Penetrating sealers are invisible and breathable, and do not detract from the original appearance. Penetrating sealers minimize the pore size of the products and thereby reduce the porosity of the pavers.  There are generally two main types of sealers; sealers for water ingress, and sealers for for oil as well as water ingress. The later tend to be more expensive but do help with greater stain resistance. It is important to remember that sealing only makes cleaning easier, it does not prevent staining
