Efflorescence  or ‘lime bloom’ is a naturally accruing phenomenon, which can sometimes occur in concrete or natural paving products due to the use of naturally sourced materials, The phenomenon may have the appearance of a white milky bloom on the surface of the product and an apparent loss of intensity of colour and texture may occur, This can detract from the looks of a new pavement, but is important to understand that no matter how bad it may seems to look it is in no way detrimental to the strength, durability or performance of the products, Different paving  products can also react to concrete, aggregates and mortars that they are laid on,

Efflorescence is a phenomenon that in time will gradually fade away , this can be days ,weeks ,months or even years depending on the ground  and light conditions,

There are products on the market to help remove this but simply washing with warm soapy water will in time usually achieve the same results at a fare cheaper cost


The pictures and textures shown on this web site is a representation of colour and texture of all products which can vary from pack to pack, When laying multiple packs please ensure that all packs are mixed together to give a uniform texture and colour, Natural Sandstone paving can have smooth and also have deep riven affects in the slabs, they are also hand cut so the edges can be quite jagged which is perfectly normal for this type of slab, Natural Sandstone may change colour after laying which is caused by natural minerals dissipating from the product, This is a normal process in the product and will after time settle down, Colour can not be guaranteed to be the same as broached or showroom sample because of being a natural product , 

All hard landscaping products are manufactured from natural materials and colour and texture variations  may occur, Colour and consistency cannot therefore be guaranteed and this websites pictures are as accurate as displays on different devices can show,


Darker patches may be present on some paving due to different drying times but will disappear over time, This is a result or the paver surface being cured at different rates and is no way detrimental to the strength, durability or performance of the paving, The laying of paving on concrete or other sub bases can also affect the paving and cause marks to leach through to the surface of the paving.
