    Nice paving but delivery issues
    Review by Beverley
    Posted on 10/10/2017
    The paving itself was very nice but unfortunately the delivery method was unsatisfactory. We had to help the driver get the slabs off the lorry and we had to remove them from the pallet on the road. This would stop us ever buying anything else from you again which is unfortunate.

  • Hints and Tips

    Will my paving look exactly like the online image?  Why not request a sample tile of any paving product you like before ordering to ensure you are happy with the colour? We can offer free samples of most of our products. Both our manufacturers make every effort to produce images that give you as clear an idea as possible of the texture and colour of their paving slabs, but we know it really helps to see a sample before making your decision. Samples can be with you in 3-4 days. Just phone our team or use Turnbull Chat to request.

    How much paving do I need? There is a handy Paving Calculator available on each product, so the hard work is done for you. All you need to know is the area you want to cover. You should also allow for wastage – so you can ensure you still have enough slabs or blocks available to complete your paving project if you drop one, or make a mistake when cutting.

    Is there a set pattern for laying garden paving? Marshalls and Stonemarket offer a wide range of laying patterns for their products, but do give us a call on 01529 308839 and we’ll gladly help you find the best design for your project. Alternatively, use Marshalls free online Paving Planner tool, which allows you select different laying patterns for your chosen paving slab.

    Will there be a colour variation in my paving? With natural stone paving, there is a possibility that there is a slight colour variant between individual quarried batches. We suggest you order enough paving for your project to avoid having to top up from another batch. It’s worth giving the slabs a quick wash to remove any dust and residue; this will reveal the precise colour of your paving. Concrete paving made from natural stone aggregates sourced close to the manufacturing site can also vary, so again it’s worth checking you are purchasing from the same batch.

    How deep should the foundations be? Foundations for garden slabs need to be at least 150mm deep. If you are putting a patio or paving next to your house, the surface of your patio must also be 150mm below the damp proof course of the house. The depth of driveway foundations depends entirely on the total weight that will be on the driveway at any one time.

    What weight can the slabs take? As a rule of thumb, pavers under 50mm thickness are not suitable for use in a driveway as there is not enough stone to cope with the weight of a vehicle. Call us on 01529 308839 and we will advise a suitable paver thickness for your driveway.

    Can I get jointing compounds to match my slabs? Yes, Weatherpoint 365 is available in three colours: Buff, Stone Grey and Black. One of these should match your paving slabs closely or provide a nice contrast. Weatherpoint 365 Jointing Compound also allows you to lay paving in the rain, saving time and hassle during installation. Just make sure your foundations do not become too wet or your paving surface could be affected.

    Do I need to seal my garden paving? No, Marshalls and Stonemarket paving products do not require sealants. Routine seasonal brushing and cleaning of your paths and patios will keep them clear of debris, moss and algae. High quality paving is less porous, moisture-resistant and is easier to keep clean as a result.

    Will the colour of my paving slabs fade over time? Concrete slabs, which get their colour and texture from coloured by natural stone aggregates, and natural stone paving will both fade slightly over time due to sunlight and weathering. Concrete paving coloured with pigments will fade more - and more quickly - than natural slabs. However, vitrified paving fades less over a long period of time.

    Will anything stain the slabs, for instance fat and oil? Yes, some household and DIY products will stain your paving slabs. If you spill any fat or oil from a barbecue, it will soak into the paving stones and create marks. The quicker you clean a spill, the less likely it will stain permanently. Avoid using strong or undiluted acids directly on the slabs, as this again might cause discolouration and possibly long- term damage to the slabs.
