Tumbled Paving | Sandstone & Limestone 

 

Bring a touch of warmth and tradition into the home with tumbled paving. The types of stone listed here have been given an ‘antique’ finish by a refinement process known as ‘tumbling’ — a deliberate ageing strategy to make the rock look very old or ‘vintage’.

 

Tumbled paving has the rustic charm of a naturally weathered stone with a worn and aged surface. It is made out of riven stone and retains a gripped surface that is both textured yet slightly softened to the touch. This is what gives the paving its character. The result is a lightly riven finish that looks long-established.

 

Tumbled sandstone paving and granite is ideal for anyone looking to recreate a traditional setting. It is suitable for indoor and outdoor applications. It is especially popular for that worn patio look and in rural and conservation projects.

FAQS


Paving made to look old on purpose, for cosmetic reasons. Stone that is tumbled is deliberately processed to give it a weathered finish and appear older than it is.

As the name suggests, tumbling originally involved passing the stone through a rotating drum supported with granite, sand and water. This made the slabs strike each other, softening the lines of the stone and rubbing away at the corners and edges. However, this old-fashioned way had a high incidence of breakage and has been replaced by a newer method.

Nowadays, tumbled paving slabs are created by placing the paving slabs in a vibrating vat filled with aggregate or small loose stones to soften the edges and corners. This process has the same end result but with much less wastage.



Slightly chalky or dusty-looking, with a deliberately muted colour or “shine” to them. The tumbled look is very different to what you’d expect with honed or polished stone. The whole appeal of the look and process is to make the stone appear deliberately old.



Not really. Tumbled paving stones are porous — meaning they absorb water quickly. This makes them ideal for outdoor areas. Including walkways and poolside patios.



It is up to you. Sealing will help to prevent staining and the growth of moss or algae, particularly if your stone is light in colour as it may stain easier. However, sealing the stone may take away a little of that antique feel you are after.

Sealing also helps to protect against other general wear. But not everyone does it and there is no ‘right’ answer.

Some people like to leave their stones down for a year to let them weather naturally first. Others seal them before laying. Get in touch with our specialists if you’re unsure about sealing tumbled paving slabs.



Yes, as tumbled stone has to go through an extra process. But they are cost-efficient in other ways. Tumbled paving is very easy to install and is hard wearing. The antique finish lends itself well to little maintenance.
