Installation & Maintenance Tips

Sandstone pavers and tiles are a widespread choice for outdoor paving and landscaping for patios, pathways, backyards and pool surrounds as well as for indoor flooring and wall cladding. Sandstone is a durable and attractive natural stone, featuring the earthy beauty of nature. Appropriate installation and maintenance are vital to ensure it maintains its endurance and appearance and withstands the test of time.

Here are some tips for installing and maintaining Sandstone.

Installation Tips

  • Prepare a sturdy surface: Your design space where Sandstone pavers or tiles will be installed must be clean, level and free from any debris or stone dust. A structurally sound surface will establish a secure and balanced base for your Sandstone pavers or tiles and prevent stumbling on irregular surfaces.
  • Use a long-lasting adhesive:: A strong glue is essential when installing tiles or pavers over existing ones or on a wooden substrate. It helps to keep the stone in place and prevents shifting over time. Pick a high-binding adhesive specifically meant for Sandstone installations for flawless and lasting results. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for proper proportions and application steps.
  • Grouting: Select a grout material specifically suitable for Sandstone. Avoid using acidic or harsh cleaners before you begin grouting to prevent damage to the stone’s surface. Ensure the tiles or pavers are set properly and wait for a minimum of 24 hours after applying the adhesive for it to dry out completely. Scrape off the extra grout before it starts to set.
  • Sealing: Before and after the grouting is done, apply a penetrating sealer specially designed for Sandstone. Sealing safeguards the stone from stains, moisture absorption and any other kind of damage. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions or installers’ recommendations for frequency of application. The general rule of thumb is every 2 years.
  • Allow for natural movement: Due to its inherent characteristics, Sandstone may expand and contract in response to alternatives in humidity levels and temperature changes. Use a spacer to leave proper and consistent spacing for expansion joints to allow space for this movement.

Maintenance Tips

  • Clean Regularly: Sweep or vacuum your Sandstone surfaces regularly to keep them in the best condition. Don’t let dirt or debris build up on the stone. Clean with a soft cloth or sponge and a pH-neutral stone cleaner. Avoid using tough chemicals as they can shed off the stone's natural grains over time. Also, don’t use acidic cleaners as they can cause etching and damage its outer surface.
  • Act promptly in case of spills: Clean up wine, vinegar and citrus juice spills immediately to avoid staining. Blot with a soft absorbent cloth or paper tissue to dab off the excess liquid. Don’t clean vigorously as it can spread the stain and add to the damage.
  • Avoid scrubbing: Hard washing natural stones is not advised. Use a smooth cloth or a soft brush for cleaning. Avoid scrubbing with rough cleaning pads, as they can scrap the stone and damage its natural lustre over time.
  • Reseal Periodically: Sandstone needs periodic resealing to retain its gorgeous look and lustre. Depending on the type of stone, where it is installed and the amount of foot traffic your area receives, you may need to reseal the stone every 1-2 years. Follow the sealer’s instructions or seek professional help for perfect results.
  • Protect from heavy load: In spite of the fact that Sandstone is a resilient stone, it is not recommended to drop heavy objects or drag furniture across its surface to avert chipping or cracking over time. Place carpets and mats strategically in your space to preserve the life and appearance of your Sandstone pavers and tiles.
  • For outdoor use: Ensure that the Sandstone pavers or tiles installed outdoors for the patio, backyard, garden or pool areas are of the correct thickness matching the intended use of the space. Alfresco and patio areas with low foot traffic operate well with 20mm thickness while pool decks and walkways with heavy use need a thickness of at least 30mm or more. Also, ensure the right surface finish for your Sandstone pavers so they sustain outdoor conditions efficiently.

By following these installation and maintenance tips, you can keep your Sandstone paver or tiles looking their best for decades.
