Colour and shade variation can occur in natural and concrete paving slabs. Variation between batches can occur and it is recommended that before laying commences, slabs are drawn from the packs and mixed to suit.
Colours can change and weather over time, the way in which this happens is dependent upon the surrounding conditions. Strong sunlight, shade and naturally occurring variation in the aggregates used can all alter this. This is not detrimental to the use of the slabs in any way and will generally enhance the appearance as it creates a natural finish.
As with natural stone, small brown patches may appear. This is due to iron oxidation occurring, again this is not detrimental to the slabs and these marks will weather down in time.
All our decorative gravels are from quarries throughout the UK, we make every effort to display a true representation of the product colour, but please note there may be variations in colour.
All sizes stated are nominal and may be subject to change. Slight variations in thickness may occur and Country Garden Patio Centre Ltd therefore recommends that slabs are always laid on a full mortar bed. Small fissures may occur on larger individual concrete slabs as a result of shrinkage. This does not necessarily affect the long-term performance of the product.
On occasion you may notice white patches appearing on your patio, this is known as efflorescence. The condition may occur in natural and concrete products usually due to salts and minerals in the stone. This will disappear in time.
Please note that should there be any defects other than the above mentioned naturally occurring ones, Country Garden Patio Centre Ltd should be notified before the paving slabs have been laid. Once the paving slabs have been laid, Country Garden Patio Centre Ltd cannot accept responsibility for any defects of the above-mentioned conditions.
We do not recommend the over use of a jet pressure washer. Washing your patio with a brush should be adequate but should you wish to use a cleaning product, use only ones that are recommended for the patio and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Do not use de-icing salts on your patio, this can affect the surface appearance!
Sandstone is very porous and will stain if wine, barbeque fats, etc. are spilt on it. However, it is not recommended that the paving is sealed immediately after laying. This is to allow time for the salts and minerals to come out of the paving.
Liability in respect of any statement, condition warranties and representations made on behalf of Country Garden Patio Centre Ltd is limited in accordance with the terms set out in the standard terms of sale. Whilst every effort is made to give sound advice, Country Garden Patio Centre Ltd cannot accept responsibility or liability in respect of products being used for any purposes other than for those for which they were intended.
Due to continuous development, products may be subject to change without notice. Customers should check that information is up to date.
