Sandstone tiles need to be sealed at least once every 2 to 3 years as they are very porous.
If they are not sealed regularly, they absorb dirt and it is impossible to clean them once they get dirty.
It is not recommended that you use sandstone in the kitchen.
When you want to buy natural finished sandstone tiles to walk around the pool area, you need to make sure you choose high quality tiles.
The entire surface of the tile should feel as rough as sandpaper, not soft and powdery, and you also need to check the sides of the tile.

Sandstone tiles without solid edges can cause you problems later on.
Once you have purchased the tiles, you need to make sure that they are maintained properly on a regular basis in order to make the most of them.
In order to allow the ground to move, you need to leave at least 5mm of the grouting joints between the tiles.
You should not dock the tiles because they are not all 100% accurate in size, which means you will not get straight between the tiles.
After grouting, you should wash the sandstone tiles several times and let them dry for a few days.
You also need to choose the right sealing material for the sandstone.
The capping machine you use to make granite tiles is not suitable for sandstone.
You need a stronger sandstone sealing material.
You can use a deep seal that can be found in most hardware stores.
You need to seal the tiles with 2 to 3 layers of coating to make sure they don\'t get dirty and you need to repeat the process every few years depending on the quality of the tiles.
If you have good quality sandstone, you can do it every 3 years if the tile quality is not good.
Sandstone tiles bring beauty and peace to your home, so it\'s worth spending a little extra money on them.
