Please note the shade of the final product could differ slightly compared to the sample you may receive due to slight batch variation. You must ensure that you are happy with the colour variation of the product you have received before you start laying, as after installation exchange will no longer be possible.
Ensure that you have all the required material to completely the whole project onsite before commencing any work. Open all your crates at the same time, taking material evenly from each of them. This will ensure you have a good distribution of colours across the whole paved area. DO NOT open one crate at a time using all the material before opening the next, this can result in uneven distribution of colours and can look unsightly.
We recommend that all customers read our product selection, maintenance & installation guides before purchasing.
Within black slate you can occasionally find deposits of iron pyrite (fools gold) these present themselves as gold deposits inside and on the surface of the stone, if you are not happy with the appearance of theses panels, do not laying them, you are welcome to return any of these to your local branch to be swapped, after installation, it is no longer the responsibility of Natural Stone and Timber Ltd and replacements will no longer be possible.
Do not use acidic cleaners on natural stone as they can cause permanent, irreparable, damage to the colour and structure of the stone.
It is important to seal all natural stone products, especially when being used externally, which is generally the case with Cladding panels. We would recommend using two coats Hydroseal from Universeal, this will help prevent dirt ingress and work as a barrier to protect your stone cladding, which will greatly reduce the maintenance needed to keep your cladding in great condition.
All Natural Stone Wall Cladding Panels should be installed with a rapid setting, flexible tiles adhesive, that has been formulated for natural stone installation. If your wall cladding is to be installed outside, ensure your adhesive is suitable for exterior applications. We would always recommend using Ultra Tile - ProFlex SP in a colour to match your chosen panels which is available from all NST branches.
With proper maintenance, quality natural stone wall panels can last 20-30 years or more.
In some cases, it is possible to do it on your own, but we personally recommend hiring a
