Raj Blend comes in two varieties Calibrated with a consistent depth of 18mm and Uncalibrated which varies in depth between 17-22mm. Whether you chose Calibrated or Uncalibrated, the uppermost appearance of the slabs will be the same. The difference is the thickness of the product.
Calibrated paving slabs have been cut down to a consistent thickness of 18mm. Because of this, the slabs are slightly more expensive. However, the benefits of this include that they are quicker and easier to lay as you do not need to keep adjusting your mortar bed to achieve a level patio.
Uncalibrated paving slabs have not been through a calibration process therefore the slabs vary in thickness between 17 and 22mm. This is why this style of product is slightly cheaper than calibrated. Uncalibrated slabs are ideal if you are working to a budget, and/or you aren't worried about your project taking slightly longer to lay.
Part of the character of natural sandstone paving is that no two stones are coloured or patterned the same. So, when combined they create a rich blend of colours, tones and patterns to make a beautiful overall tapestry for your patio. Because these paving slabs have been hewn and riven from quarried stone, and then cut by hand, their finish and edges are also unique, giving them a natural and individual character.
Raj Blend is ideal for patios and garden paving - its colouration, stability and tactile feel underfoot means it is perfect for outdoor living areas where the family can get tother to enjoy the garden and sunshine! Whether your garden needs a large terrace or patio, or a small seating area tucked into the nook of a wall, these versatile patio pavers have right combinations of sizes and formats to meet your needs.
Raj Blend Calibrated is offered in four paving slab size-formats and sold as 6 different pack options:
Pointing Your Patio
Pointing your patio couldn’t be any easier! Gone are the days of time-consuming traditional pointing with sand and cement. Paving Direct recommends using a ‘Brush in Grout’ such as Pavestone Pointfix.
Pointfix is a two-part jointing compound. One pack contains epoxy resin within the compound and the other epoxy hardener. Mixing and applying Pointfix is much cleaner and easier than traditional sand and cement mortar as you simply just mix the contents within the tub and brush into the joints.
Pointfix is available to buy in two options. Either as a single tub to get the exact amount needed, or if you are buying our 18.85 or 20.7 m2 contractor packs then Pointfix contractor packs will give you perfect coverage and save you money.
In addition to the standard paving packs, Raj Blend is also available in three sizes of Circle Feature Kits and their corresponding Squaring Off Kits - please see the related products for details.
Seasonal changes can often bring a differing perspective to the reflected colours of the stone. In strong summer sunlight, a sandstone patio will appear to have less colour variation, whilst after rain, the colours will have a deep patina.
As with any natural product be aware variation is normal and to be expected. Sandstone is a sedimentary rock which means it was created on the seabed floor as numerous layers of sand were laid down and compressed over many millions of years. This process by means the stone has patterning and veins where different colour sands laid down and blended to form this rock.
Colours, tones and patterns vary naturally and that is precisely what you are buying when you select these natural products. These are not carbon copy stone slabs, but each is unique, with their own natural character. And that is the beauty a natural stone patio should present to you.
These pavers are quarried from the highest quality India sandstone where our expert quarrymen select and cut this tried and tested stone. With their years of experience, our masons cut and shape the stone to exacting standards so you can be assured you are getting the highest standard paving in each pack.
Raj Blend is one of our most popular products. Offering a great balance between aesthetic quality, colour choice, performance, durability and price, it is understandable why so my people chose this paving.
Sandstone is permeable which means it is not impervious to spills and weathering. Therefore to better protect your stone we recommend using a natural stone sealant such as Pavestone Natural Finish Stone Sealer, a water-based impregnator that ensures protection against stains and facilitates everyday maintenance.
