Tiles and Flagstones

VascoStone offers a range of cast stone flooring, pavers, slabs, steps and flagstones for interior and exterior use. VascoStone cast stone paving textured paving and smooth paving are supplied in various slab sizes and textures.

Our paving slabs come in a range of shapes, colours, textures and sizes. The shapes vary and include squares, rectangles, or round circles based on your preference, and the surfaces can be made smooth, patterned, distressed, or uneven. Using white cement, different sand types and colour pigment, we can offer different colours of paving slabs.

They can be made of cement, reconstituted stone (either sandstone or limestone), granite or crushed marble depending on the desired finish. They can either be left as is, acid-washed to create a grainy non-slip property, or polished. Polishing can be customised for a smooth surface polish or a deep terrazzo polish to reveal the aggregate of material, giving a granite-like appearance. To protect the paving slabs, a matt or shiny sealant can be applied which also assists in keeping the pavers clean.

about us

VascoStone is a unique form of cast stone with a surface texture similar to Portland stone.

In a number of important ways, cast stone is markedly superior. One of its greatest advantages is price, which piece for piece, is normally significantly less than that of quarried stone or natural stone.

VascoStone has identified the exacting requirements of its customers, both private and professional, and an ongoing research and development programme ensures that the highest standards are maintained. Like quarried stone or natural stone, VascoStone can exhibit slight shade variations from piece to piece, reflecting the colour of the natural materials used in the cast stone production process. 

Customers should also be aware that locally quarried sand and natural pigments can produce subtle colour variations between orders

When cast stone planters are used in interior settings, a liner should be used, as planters are made with drainage holes, and the material has natural porosity. When interior architectural stonework is used in public areas, it is advisable to seal the surface of the stonework with a clear sealer.

Efflorescence, also known as lime bloom, may appear as a white deposit on the surface of any product containing cement or limestone. This is temporary and will disappear as a result of normal weathering or may be removed with a proprietary acid washing agent. Under certain exceptional conditions, a hairline fissure may occur on the surface of the product, a characteristic of any material using a cementitious binder. In normal circumstances, this will have no effect on the piece’s structural integrity.

All cast-in fixings and reinforcement used by VascoStone during the production process are non-ferrous, usually stainless steel.

Cast Stone has a long and illustrious history that intertwines with the great boom in classically inspired country house buildings from the eighteenth century onwards. Cast stone is referred to by many different names, including simulated stone, manufactured stone, reconstructed stone, reconstituted stone, composite stone, cast stone and concrete.
