Granite Paving Installation

Before I got involved in the stone business I used to run a hard landscaping company in Stoke on Trent.  One of the most challenging aspects of any landscaping project is to finish the job to a high standard.  The small details at the end of the project are what will often set your project apart from the competition.  These small details are often time consuming but taking your time at the end of a project is essential if you are to achieve that perfect finish.

London Stone have been on site in Warrington with The Original Stone Paving Co for the past few weeks as they install a high spec sawn Granite paving installlation.  We are coming to the end of the project now and space on site is getting tight.  The bulk of the Granite paving has been installed now and Cookie and the guys are starting to fill all the gaps.  This often involves lots of cutting.  Granite is one of the hardest types of stone paving available and is much more difficult to cut than sandstone and limestone paving.  When cutting natural stone paving it is essential to use a diamond tipped blade.  Even with a diamond blade it can still be difficult to cut granite, but a good quality dimaond blade will easily cut through Sandstone, Limestone, Slate and Travertine Paving.  Diamond blades are expensive to buy but if you need to cut natural stone paving on a regular basis they are an essential piece of kit.
