The benefits of basalt paving are the hard-wearing and durable material formed from lava which provides a dark, dense paving material. Basalt is one of the darkest coloured natural stones available with paving slabs to match in the same range.
What is Basalt Paving?
Basalt is an igneous rock that forms when lava cools and solidifies. It is a dark, dense rock with a dull, blackish-gray appearance. Basalt is the most common type of rock in the Earth's crust and is often used as a construction material. It is strong and durable, making it an ideal choice for paving setts and block paving. Basalt pavers and setts are also less likely to be damaged by freeze-thaw cycles than other types of pavers, making them a good choice for cold climates.
Basalt is a natural stone that is both beautiful and durable, making it an ideal choice for paving setts and block paving. Basalt pavers and setts are available in a dark steely grey colour that appears black when wet, allowing you to create a unique and stylish driveway that will enhance the kerb appeal of your home. Basalt is also extremely strong and resistant to damage, so you can be confident that your driveway will withstand heavy traffic and weather conditions.
