One can also have the benefit of versatility by choosing sandstone pavers as they may choose from a wide range of colour, types, and patterns. Sandstone pavers are economical; they are very easy to install with minimal cost and demands effortless cleaning methods.
We have already established that using Sandstones as Pavers is very economical and long lasting. However, sometimes you may encounter few trivial problems. Understanding the problems and their solutions can save you a lot of time and money. Here, at Sandstone World, we’re highlighting the problems and the solutions for your better understanding:
Laying the pavers on the bed of sands can cause unwanted weeds to grow which can also lead to the uneven surface. The perfect solution would be to take up the pavers and remove the sand. The Sandstone Pavers should now be laid on a proper wet cement mix.
Sometimes you may notice that the distance between the pavers might be jagged and indented. In that case, you should check the taper on each stone. Keep in mind that the narrow part of the taper should be always at the top while the wider part should be at the bottom.
There is no definite solution to this problem other than replacement as it is prone to further cracking in such weathers. However, it can be prevented by inspecting the pavers on a daily basis or at least after bitter weather conditions. The paved driveway should be swept regularly to get rid of any harmful debris.
The weakest point of the Sandstone Pavers is its corners. They have low resilience to chipping and this affects the overall look of the paved path. As mentioned before in the context of cracking, once chipped, there is no solution but to replace the pavers. Keep in mind that the corners of the pavers should point in the right direction before grouting to ensure that the grout is in the level with the pavers.
If you are using Sandstone pavers, then stains are the least of your worries. The effortless way to eradicate this problem would be to let snow and rain take the stain out of the sandstone. If you want to do it yourself, start by diluting the stain using water and scrub it gently.
