How to care and mantain Sandstone?

It is difficult to prevent the natural effects from influencing the look of your sandstone installation however the following common sense procedures will assist.Regular brooming the surface or washing with hose pressure water, if available, will gently remove the build up of surface particles and discourage the algae growth.Remove overhanging vegetation that is likely to drop leaves, gum nuts etc onto the paving.Maintenance of the surface drains will ensure quicker disposal of rain water etc.Maintain gutters and downpipes to preclude overflow onto cladding and paving.Useful chemicals for cleaning sandstone are either ‘chlorine’ active cleaners like your household bleach, pool chlorine or “Domestos” and “Wet & Forget” which is a microbial biocide. Both these products will work to kill the algae growth but are not eco friendly products and as such should be used sparingly and with caution as the residual product may be washed into your garden or down the drain into the local water system. .

About Sandstone raw blocks 


Raw blocks are large pieces of stone that do not own any fixed shape and further they are chiseled into various different forms. 

They are mainly used for sawing and carving i.e to make slabs, tiles, statues, repositories and monuments.
" Raw blocks of sandstone" are of fine quality out of which beautiful and elegant pieces of artifacts are crafted out which are unique and have magnificent charisma. 

No other artifact can be compared with sandstone raw blocks.in terms of their styles, design and finishing.

 Huge masses of sandstone are known as sandstone blocks that are altered for different purposes. 

Design of sandstone

Sandstone raw blocks are available in different sizes, shapes, finishes (either polished or honed) styles and colors.

To suit different styles and applications manufacturers are proficient at providing custom designs. 

Demand for them is continuously increasing due to its magnificent charisma and aura.  

Origin of Sandstone

China , Australia, Uk, United States,central Europe and Mongolia.

How is sandstone formed in the rock cycle?

Sandstone FormationRocks are continually recycled, typically on timescales of millions of years, in what's known as the rock cycle. The three major types of rocks - igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary - can each be turned into a new metamorphicrock when given enough heat and pressure.

Characteristics of Sandstone

A sedimentary rock consisting of sheets of sand, mineral particles, and binding matrix deposited one atop in water environments and desert formations.

Very porous and water will penetrate it easily.

Brown, red, purple, and pink sandstones are commonly called brownstone.
