Juliet Sargeant, a former Chelsea gold medal winner, specified PietraPave STRIDING EDGE in mid grey for a recent project in Friston, East Sussex.
Juliet was working for the owners of a stunning 1930’s home full of original features and character, her design included attractive traditional-style natural stone setts. However Juliet knew that in using PietraPave her contractors wouldn’t need to place each and every stone precisely to achieve the overall design she had created. Each PietraPave mat is pre-cut and therefore can typically be less than half the cost per fully laid square metre due to it’s rapid installation time.
The groundworks contractor that Juliet commissioned to instal the 140sq m of stock setts was delighted that two men laid between 16 and 20m2 per hour with a superb end result. Time savings were also enjoyed as the contractors used the ProJoint V75-WT as their resin jointing system, providing a winning combination for both the home owner and Juliet.
PietraPave offers you all the benefits of beautiful natural stone, but with a fuss-free installation. The real stone paving is bonded to a backing mat which can then be simply laid on to a prepared screed mix and compacted down to levels.
We also offer a bespoke design service which means any design you may wish to include in your project can be created with the same bonded setts to a backing mat - ensuring even the most elaborate of designs can be trouble-free in installation.
