Below are pictures of a job taken at a private residence in Lansdale, Pa that was installed in the Fall of 2016. Full color range, natural cleft paving was used throughout the walkways and both terraces. At the customer’s request, the contractor connected the main terrace off the house to a very unique circular shaped patio with a belgian block border. The circular sitting area will be used as a perfect spot for the family’s fire-pit.
Thermal bluestone treads were used for the stairs, border treads and pier caps. Because natural cleft bluestone varies in thickness, thermal bluestone is used where there are visible exposed edges. The thermal treads and caps are a consistent thickness (on this particular job they are 1 1/2″ thick), and have flamed exposed edges. The natural cleft paving material has sawn edges that vary in thickness and isn’t always the right type of bluestone to be set in areas where the exposed edges will be highly visible. The solid bluish-gray color of the thermal bluestone contrasts nicely with the more varied colors of the full color range paving.
