Indian Sandstone Specialist in Bromley | Local and Regional Coverage

AJB Groundworks Ltd is a reputable company of groundworks and paving contractors from Orpington. We are Indian sandstone specialists with access to paving, in a choice of thicknesses for use on driveways, patios and pathways. Covering Bromley, Sevenoaks and the South East Region, we use Indian sandstone specifically designed to withstand the weight of vehicles and constant foot traffic.


Our company also offers a full nationwide service.


Choose from a range of different shades and let us create you a premium installation in a selection of discrete, understated or dramatic styles. AJB Groundworks can accommodate the most detailed specification and delivers a final finish that transforms kerb appeal.


As a reputable Indian sandstone specialist that understands the demands placed on surfacing materials, we insist on driveway-grade paving in thicknesses of up to 40mm; tested and approved for a range of applications. Instead of using a thinner, weaker slab to install at a lower cost, our company prefers to use a higher grade of product that beats cheaper alternatives for quality, Even then, we are still fair and competitive when it comes to price.


Honesty and transparency are the cornerstones of our business, and the qualities that earn us so many referrals from customers in Bromley, Sevenoaks and the surrounding areas.

What is Indian Sandstone?


Indian sandstone is a popular surfacing material, formed into slabs, and one of the fastest-growing choices for driveway and patio installations across the UK. The product we use at AJB Groundworks offers the strength and versatility demanded from a premium material without any compromise whatsoever in its beauty. Indian sandstone is a natural stone product used to create stylish surfaces for practical, family and social use.


As an Indian sandstone specialist for the Bromley and Sevenoaks areas, we understand that our sector has a sizeable proportion of low-grade products available. Cheap Indian sandstone is softer, thinner, lighter and more porous than the materials we use, and lack the resilience required to cope with sustained traffic and the temperate UK climate.


AJB Groundworks insists on Indian sandstone with a recognised quality mark that is suitable for its intended purpose and manufactured to preserve our specialist status.

Quality Standards for Indian Sandstone


The quality mark assigned to our preferred choice of Indian sandstone exceeds current BS 7533-12:2006 standards for natural stone paving. The product we use undergoes testing at accredited UKAS laboratories. BS 7533-12:2006 is the absolute minimum criteria to which our materials perform before we consider them for a driveway, patio or pathway installation. We never supply our customers with anything less than a tested and approved product.


Many of our previous projects in Bromley, Sevenoaks and the South East have Indian sandstone as the medium. We have examples of these installations in our website gallery.


Genuine Indian sandstone specialists look for the following qualities:


  • The material must have maximum water absorption to 1.7%. Anything higher turns green, creates a slipping hazard and damages easily in frosty conditions
  • A minimum bend strength of 12.9mpa guarantees yield in the product and reduces the impact of stress. This ensures the material never fails or delaminates
  • Maximum reductions of 10% in bend strength after more than 50 freeze and thaw cycles ensure good resistance to frost, snow and the coldest weather conditions


We take our reputation as an Indian sandstone specialist seriously and any product that fails to meet criteria doesn’t make it to the job. Attention to detail with matters like these, and our dedication to excellence, makes AJB Groundworks Ltd such a trusted choice with homeowners and commercial clients in Bromley, Sevenoaks and all surrounding areas.
