Consistent dark grey tones, sawn straight linear edges and a subtly rippled surface. Carbon Granite Paving provides a contemporary hard wearing finish to your paved area making it ideal paving for more heavily used patios.
Pavestone Granite is available in two contrasting monochrome colours, Silver and Carbon.
The sawn, straight linear edges provide neat contemporary aesthetics, whilst the subtly rippled surface produces a very stylish and practical finish to your paved area.
Carbon Granite often has 'seam lines' in the face that can be mistaken for hairline cracks. These are purely part of the natural character of the stone and pose no structural problems.
Granite paving is not easily affected by seasonal weather changes, offering good waterproof and frost-resistant performance. Unlike some stone and concrete slabs that can be affected by freeze-thaw damage/erosion, the hardness and low porous qualities of granite mean water and damp unlikely to penetrate the slabs as easily as other natural stones. Key Performances:
Granite paving will not experience colour fading from UV light and weathering as sandstone and limestone can do. So, these pavers will stay looking as good as they did the day they were laid for many years.
Pack Configurations & Coverage
High-performance granite paving is incredibly durable and hard-wearing. As well as being weatherproof and frost-resistant, its robust surface also means it is virtually resistant to moss, algae and other organic matter. The same goes for other common chemicals that can blemish paving. The hardness and cohesion of this paving also mean it is abrasion and scratch-resistant too. This all-round toughness and durability mean your patio or terrace is going to maintain its appearance and condition for many years.
One of the big advantages of high-performance granite paving is that it is very easy to maintain. Simply wash once every six months with warm soapy water. That is pretty much it!
Granite paving has sawn straight edges that are perfectly vertical with respect to the surface. This is a result of precise machining so that each of the four sides will be at a 90° angle to the top and bottom faces of the slab.
As with all paving, it is essential to lay the paving by mixing the tiles from each of the packs that are to be laid. This ensures that the overall desired hue is achieved and evens out any slight colour discrepancies. Laying your patio one pallet at a time can lead to slight but visible colour banding.
It is essential to use a Slurry Primer, which should be applied to the underside of each paving tile just prior to laying - the will ensure proper bonding and adhesion. The priming slurry should mean you don't have to add an SBR bond to your mortar base mix. Please refer to the laying instructions if in any doubt.
A flexible Tile Grout should be used and care must be taken not to let it dry on the surface of the tile. We recommend applying a protective sealant to your pavers to help prevent marking from grout residue (Porcelain Tile Protector).
