As a natural stone, Indian Sandstone is permeable and will allow moisture to penetrate its surface. As a result, it is generally advised to seal your Sandstone Paving to help prevent any staining to the slabs. Sealing your patio slabs will also help to prevent the build-up of any unwanted growths, such as algae, moss and mould, which dwell in moist environments.

We offer a wide range of sealing and cleaning products which can be used for maintaining Indian Stone. See our full range here. If in doubt, speak to one of our experts who would be happy to answer your questions and provide any advice you may need!

As for when to apply a sealer your Sandstone Slabs, there are no specific guidelines. Some people choose to seal their stone before laying to prevent against any staining during the laying process, whereas others prefer to leave their paving unsealed for a full year to allow the stone to weather naturally before applying a sealant. However, if a porous stone is left unsealed, it is more likely to be affected by harsh weather, such as frost.

It is always advised to speak to a local tradesman who will be able to advise you on the specific sealing needs of your project, as there is a range of varying factors which may need to be considered.
