What is Yorkstone?
Yorkstone is a term that can cover a huge variety of sandstone, but in order to qualify as true Yorkstone, it needs to come from quarries in Yorkshire that have been around since the medieval times. The stone is incredibly tight grained and can contain traces of quartz, clay, iron oxides and even mica as well.
So what else do you need to know about Yorkstone? You should note that it is produced from diamond sawn and it is non-slip as well. Of course, it is incredibly hard wearing and this alone means that it can last 100 years of more. You can get it in a huge range of colours and this will help you to match the look of your home perfectly. On top of this, it is considered to be a very traditional building material that is approved by a huge range of local authorities. The colours that are available allow you to more than transform and compliment your home, not to mention that the Yorkshire stone can offer a sharp and very stylish solution.
