Yorkstone is the best type of stone to produce paving slabs from. It has proved itself over the centuries to be extremely durable, even under heavy traffic and footfall. Yorkstone paving is strong, much stronger than other sandstones. This strength makes it the perfect choice for high traffic areas, that it is exposed to in many towns and cities. Yorkstone paving is seen in heritage towns and cities around the country, from London to Edinburgh.
New Yorkstone is a natural product, and as such, it is very important to take into consideration the fact that it has variances in colour, markings and texture. This variance is what gives charm and character to the paving. Even with a smooth surface, like a sawn or riven finish, Yorkstone paving will remain slip resistant. This is as true for worn, reclaimed paving, as it is for new. Yorkstone flags are ideal for interior and exterior uses, including around swimming pools, as it is slip resistant, even if it gets wet.
Many people think that Yorkstone is buff/brown, but it comes in a huge range of colours, depending on it’s mineralogical content. Oranges, reds, blues and greys are all available, depending on the areas that the paving is sourced from. We can supply paving in a range of colours and finishes from light buffs to dark greys, that will complement any setting, from domestic driveways to traditional farmhouse to contemporary city properties to town centre regeneration schemes.
