Natural Variation Information

As limestone is a natural stone, there will be slight colour variations between each paving slab. You may also find that there are some naturally occurring markings which are caused by iron oxidising in the stone. This will blend over time, and you can expect slight fading with blue limestone slabs due to exposure to the sun – but this simply adds a charming and rustic feel to your space.

Specifications and Dimensions

Installation and Aftercare

To install your blue Indian stone, you will need to use a full bed of semi-wet mix of ratio 5:1 sharp sand to cement. You will need to ensure that the groundwork is prepared correctly and the base is approximately 1520mm deep. Your base should be even and solid and may require an additional level of sand or fine gravel to help your paving stones bond securely. The paving stones will need to be primed before they are laid with a priming slurry to further help the adhesion.

Your blue limestone patio should be swept regularly and cleaned once or twice a year to keep it looking fantastic and to protect the surface of the stone. Be careful if you use a pressure washer, as this could affect the surface of the slabs. We recommend that you use warm soapy water (using a PH neutral detergent) and a soft bristled brush to clean your natural stone paving. Never use acid-based cleaning products as this can stain and affect the colour of your natural stone.

FAQs

Is Kotah blue limestone good for outdoor paving?

Kotah blue limestone is a perfect option for outdoor paving as it is smooth and flat, providing the ideal coverage for large areas. It is also extremely hard wearing and durable, as well as only absorbing a minimal amount of water so you can use it anywhere – patios, pool areas, courtyards, and driveways.

How long will Kotah blue limestone last?

Once your limestone paving has been installed, you can expect it to last for decades with the proper maintenance and cleaning. Limestone is renowned for being hard wearing, durable and extremely strong with minimum water absorption so you don’t have to worry about moss and algae ruining your outdoor space.

How much does Kotah blue limestone cost?

Kotah blue limestone is available in various sizes to suit all your outdoor project needs. The cost will depend on the size of the area you wish to pave to the size of the flags you wish to use to achieve your desired look. On average, you can expect black limestone to cost £28.00 per metre square.

What exactly is Kotah blue limestone?

Kotah blue limestone is a unique looking blue limestone, with a stunning colour palette of prominent steel, with subtle shades of light blue, greys, greens, and the occasional white speckling. Blue limestone is less textured and riven than sandstone, and it is usually machine cut to give that elegant wow factor.

What is the origin of Kotah blue limestone?

Kotah blue limestone is quarried in the Indian state of Rajasthan, and is naturally made with a light blue colour, flecked with subtle highlights of yellows, greens, and greys. Due to its extreme strength and hard-wearing properties, it is the perfect stone for paving, driveways, and decorative features.

Does blue limestone paving fade?

As limestone is a natural stone, it will be prone to the same weathering and wear. Limestone can face when exposed to the sun for too long, so if you choose a blue coloured limestone, you can expect the striking blue colour to fade and mellow with time. To prevent this fading, you can use a fading sealant before you lay your patio and remember to keep it topped up.

Does blue limestone need to be sealed?

Sealing your limestone is essential to ensuring that your patio or driveway stays in its best condition. Outdoor limestone will require little maintenance if it has been properly sealed, and you will need a deep penetrating sealant to give the best possible protection. Simply brush a few layers of the sealant onto your limestone paving slabs before laying and allow the sealant to soak in and dry before you start.

Can you power wash limestone tiles?

The best way to wash your limestone tiles is to use a PH natural detergent mixed with soapy water using a soft bristled brush to get rid of any stubborn debris or stains. Power washing is not recommended to use when cleaning limestone tiles as you can very easily apply too much pressure and blast away the surface of your natural stone, leaving it open to erosion.

Does blue limestone paving stain?

Frequent cleaning should prevent your limestone paving from staining, but there will be instances where embedded debris can cause small stains. You can deal with these stains by cleaning your limestone paving with warm water and a PH neutral diluted detergent and a soft bristled brush. Do not use acid-based cleaners to clean your limestone as this will affect the colour and texture of the natural stone.

How do you get oil stains out of blue limestone?

If you do find that your limestone has stained, then stay away from the bleach or any harsh cleaning products. Instead, start by using a damp cloth or a soft bristles brush and warm water and see if the stain can be removed. If you find that this still isn’t working, you can try a specialist limestone stain removal cleaner.

Which is better: limestone or sandstone?

Limestone is quick to install and easy to care for and can be used for both interior and exterior flooring. Sandstone is generally softer than limestone, so it can be prone to scratching – however it offers a more rustic and charming quality that comes over time as the slabs begin to age.

Is limestone slippery when wet?

Much like any other stone surface, limestone can be slippery when wet. However, the slabs do have a naturally textured surface with small dents in that can provide grip when needed. You will need to take care as the stones become weathered with foot traffic, as this can also increase the slippiness of the stones.

How can you tell if a stone is limestone?

Limestone tends to be smooth and flat, with not a lot of ridges in the finish – meaning they are the perfect paving stones for patios and driveways. Limestones natural characteristics include an orange-peel texture, and you will often find them to be brown, grey, or black.

Is limestone good for a driveway?

Limestone tends to be flat and smooth, with less ridges in its finish (it is well known for being a smooth natural stone.) This means that the even surface makes it the ideal choice for driveways, and it is extremely strong so will be able to bear the weight of cars and heavy footfall without cracking or crumbling.

How can we protect Kotah blue limestone?

It is generally advised to seal your limestone before laying it, and to re-apply the sealant regularly over the years. This will prevent any staining, weathering, and prevent the growth of moss and algae. If you choose a UV sealant, this will also help to slow down the fading and the ageing process that comes with exposure to the sun.
