Problem & Solution for the Black Limestone as Pavers

Updated:2012-10-29 15:07:37
Essentially, the black limestone starts to fade to a sort of steel grey after 2-3 months of being out in the open, exposed to wishy-washy UV light and slightly acidic rainfall.

Now, that's all well and good if you were prepared for it, or if that is the colour you actually wanted, but a large proportion of buyers choose it because it's black, and they expect it to stay black, so when they notice that it's no longer as dark and sombre as they recall, they tend to get a little bit irate, and this is when the suppliers suddenly start going on about "natural variation", "typical weathering", "characteristics of the stone", and that perennial favorite, "unrealistic expectations". Unsurprisingly, none of these offer much comfort or solace to the distraught customer.
And if the sunlight and rain doesn't get it, there's a good chance to see who claims to be a paving contractor will bugger it up by cleaning with hydrochloric acid or an acid-based patio cleaner. Acid and limestone (which includes marble and that bloody awful Travertine) is NEVER a good idea. Acid and black limestone is the perfect recipe to ruin the stone forever.
For the problems, we consider two resolutions for you as reference:
1-    which of a range of products would provide best protection against fading on new black limestone;
2-    which of a range of products would best restore the colour of faded black limestone.
