By its nature all stone varies in colour and finish and may contain imperfections such as iron oxides. As
the stone weathers, colour variation can occur due to the mineral content oxidising and may also attract
organic growth. Also some delamination of the surface may occur but all these factors are not detrimental to
the performance of the stone. This is the inherent beauty of natural stone.
The effect of the cement content in the joints and base material may result in the temporary effect of
efflorescence which may appear as a white deposit on the surface of the stone which will diminish over time.
All sizes are nominal and are subject to generous production tolerances of up to ± 10mm. All flagstones and tiles
are cut to allow for joints in the installation process.
Maintenance and aftercare
Congratulations on your decision to purchase our products. Our experience has proven that the use of incorrect
materials can have a detrimental effect on the product itself. As such, we have designed a suite of products for
each stage making it easy to lay, finish, protect and care for your paving.
Please make sure that your landscaper is using VillaFix™ products during installation. Stone Paving Supplies
Ltd. only recommends the use of VillaFix™ and will not accept any liability resulting from the use of any other
propriety brands. Please carefully follow the instructions and recommendations on all VillaFix™ products. Stone
Paving Supplies will not accept responsibility for any misuse of VillaFix™ products .
Stone Paving Supplies products require sweeping on a regular basis to remove general dirt and detritus that
accumulates on any external paved area. Washing with water and a stiff broom will assist in the cleaning. If using
a power washer care must be taken not to dislodge the pointing from the joints and overuse may also affect the
surface of the natural stone flags. For more stubborn stains apply VillaFix™ products only.
Acids must not be used on natural stone as this will affect the colour and finish of the stone.
Consideration can be given to sealing of the natural stone. Sealants can be applied for the future ease of cleaning
as well as offering some protection to the surface. VillaFix™ Invisible Sealer or VillaFix™ Colour Enhancing
Sealer are available. Before using any VillaFix™ Lay, Protect & Care products always try a small, inconspicuous
test area and only proceed when satisfied.
