    Default Silver Grey Pavers with Marks

    Hi there

    Need help pls

    We are getting Silver Grey Pavers installed in our backyard and some of the pavers have yellow marks and black blobs. I am attaching a picture which shows the yeloow marks. Can these we removed? Or can they be hidden if we tint the stone?? All help would be appreciated.

    Thx

    This looks like a natural granite marketed as Blizzard. If the colours are part of the stone, then you won't remove them - it's nature. If it's (the yellow) come from the sand base being used, it should scrub off

    The black blobs are a natural feature, the yellow maybe or maybe some dirt buildup from the cutting process from the quarry. Don't even think about tinting the stone, about all you will get from that longterm (and probably short term) is an ugly stain. After laying and before putting in grout give them a good blast with a high pressure blaster, is that doesn't remove it there are cleaning chemical but I would leave it as it is. Granite is tough but can stain as with any natural material, it is what it is.
