    Indian stone driveway

    Driveway Contractors

    Are Indian stone driveways long-lasting? What are the pros and cons of this type of driveway? Is an Indian stone driveway easy to install? Thank you.

    "Indian stone installed properly will outlast a lot of finishes it is like anything easy to install if you know what you're doing! Certainly not a DIY job"

    "Sandstone slabs are only 30 mils thick so need plenty of mortar base to sit them on it will last for years if done right but it's not cheap and is time-consuming"

    "Yes you can lay Indian stone on a driveway, all to do with preparation and excavations."

    "I wouldn’t recommend Indian stone to be used as a drive way as there not designed for the heavy weight of a vehicle as there are normally 25 to 30 mm thick and would crack and break easy under the weight"
