Sawn sandstone paving and sawn granite paving can be further processed depending on how you want it. It can be:
 

  • Smooth & Honed — when stone is completely sawn it is referred to as ‘six sides sawn’. After this process, the stone is lightly polished (honed) on the top surface to take out any of the saw marks and left with a matt to light satin smooth surface which still provides some grip.

  • Shotblast — During this process the stone is peppered (shot) with small beads of steel at high speed. This technique lightens the stone and works to make all of the sawn paving slabs a very similar colour with more uniformity. Sawn Indian sandstone can be shotblast to mask the coloured ‘veins’ that are often naturally present in sedimentary rock. It also provides a fantastic contemporary textured finish.

  • Flamed — (for sawn granite slabs only) this process heats the sawn granite block paving causing the grains in the stone to change colour. This is known as a ‘flamed finish’. It’s ideal for damp or outdoor areas, or for bathrooms in particular as it lightly vitrifies the surface making it less porous. Click here to view our flamed sawn granite paving products.

FAQS


Sawn Paving refers to blocks of stone which are machine cut into paving slabs with mechanical saws as opposed to cut by hand with hammer and chisel. Naturally occurring sedimentary rock such as sandstone is created as a result of compressed sedimentary layers. Many paving slabs are split along these layers and slabs of this type are called ‘riven’ — you can view our riven or ‘hand split’ paving slabs here. Sawn paving slabs — unlike other types of paving — are not split along these layers, and often sawn against the grain. They are sawn straight off in blocks and then cut down to precise sizes.



No. Sawn sandstone paving is slip-resistant. Even a very smooth sawn slab on a wet day offers a good grip underfoot. It’s one of the reasons why Indian sandstone is so popular in landscaping projects.



Yes and no. You do not need to seal it — but we highly recommend that you do. Sealing will help to protect the stone from getting stained during installation and after. It can sometimes take a little more time and work, but it is worth the time and effort. When sawn against the grain it opens up the pores and becomes more porous and therefore more prone to staining. There are cleaning products provided by companies such as Lithofin that you can buy to help it look good whether you choose to seal it or not.



Yes. Because it involves more processing, it generally costs more than riven (hand-cut) sandstone straight from the quarry. However, sawn stone remains the first choice for people seeking a gorgeous, aesthetically unbeatable look inside and outside of the home.
