Here at Landsview Construction, we pride ourselves on our workmanship when we install Yorkstone paving and porcelain paving. Laying natural stone especially Yorkstone requires great experience, skilled and a team you can trust to lay it right.
Each piece of Yorkstone has to be laid individually on mortar bed with various thickness. The finished look of Yorkstone is best suited to a birds beak pointing system. Yorkstone is laid with multiple sizes and none of it is machine cut.
Each slab will have to be cut using a diamond blade saw and ensuring that a hose is connected into the consaw to stop the dust spreading all over the place.
Details on Yorkstone:
Yorkstone or York stone is a variety of sandstone, specifically from quarries in Yorkshire that have been worked since mediaeval times. Yorkstone is a tight grained, Carboniferous sedimentary rock.
The ratio of quartz to mica varies considerably. The stone can be split along mica-rich layers: it has a slaty cleavage and may therefore be called sandstone slate. Formerly riven (split with a chisel along the bedding planes between the sedimentary layers), it is now also often sawn. It is used for flagstones and for building walls.
Known for its hard-wearing and durable qualities, Yorkstone has been used in a wide array of building, construction and landscaping applications around the world for many years. In Yorkshire, split stones called thackstone were employed as roofing. The traditional London paving stone has been cut and pressed from quarries in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire. Yorkshire Stone is most commonly used for paving and garden walls, but it is also a popular choice for new builds as well as home extensions and conversions due to its durability to harsh weather conditions.
