Natural Paving Products has created a detailed resource for merchants, specifiers, homeowners and installers wanting to know more about natural stone paving, including technical information, laying guides and aftercare.
Called Understanding & Installing Natural Stone Paving, the guide is free to download from the Natural Paving Products’ website. It is presented in an easy to understand format with helpful and inspirational imagery.
For merchants, the guide is the perfect sales support tool for helping answer customers’ questions.
For specifiers, the booklet offers guidance on stone choice, characteristics and properties such as water absorption, flexural strength and frost resistance, as well as ethical sourcing and ensuring all stone meets industry standards.
For installers and homeowners, the guide contains a raft of practical tips for installation and aftercare.
Amber Grace, Customer Service Manager at Natural Paving Products, says: "We saw a gap in the market for such a booklet and used our knowledge and experience to deliver a one-stop-shop style guide that contains everything you need to know about natural stone paving. Everyone in the industry will benefit from reading it, as they learn something new or are validated in their practices. Equally, customers and end users will find the booklet useful in maximising their use and enjoyment of natural stone landscaping products."
Supported by industry experts Tony McCormack (the Paving Expert) and David Richardson (a Fellow of the Geological Society and past President of Stone Federation GB) the content takes an holistic look at natural stone paving.
Topics covered include ethical choices, performance properties, installation methods, staining, salt damage, health & safety and cleaning.
Natural Paving Products has also launched a new-look website to provide even easier access to its literature and products. The new site offers efficient browsing of the company's range of individual installation guides and ‘How to’ videos, further supporting installers and merchants across its natural stone, Pavetuf and Vitripiazza porcelain paving ranges.
Natural Paving Products has end-to-end supply chain control from quarry to merchant to offer peace of mind about ethical sourcing and quality assurance to its customers.
