Genuine reclaimed old cobblestones are indeed available as a thin paver!
With today’s ability to saw-cut full thickness antique cobbles, genuine reclaimed old cobblestones are available as a thin paver in a choice of thickness ranging from ¾” to 2” thick!
Monarch Stone International, importers of Historic European Cobblestone®, genuine reclaimed cobblestone, has the ability to provide exquisite authentic antique cobblestone as a paver. The top side is the original antique portion – worn well and full of character. The edges will be original, the bottom will be sawn, not gauged.
Typical, traditional cobblestones, squares and rectangles, range in heights varying from 5” to 6” tall. With the thin paver height, cobblestone for driveways, walkways, patios becomes more versatile for a variety of landscape design applications and can be requested from any of the 5 of 6 sizes in two stone types (granite or sandstone) that we reclaim and import!
For installation, it is important to note that installing a sawn or sliced antique cobblestone paver on a sand base is not recommended due to its irregularity and inability to attain tight joints such is found in a manufactured paver. There are no flat sides on an antique cobblestone. It is possible to use on a sand base for walkways or light traffic areas. However, an antique cobble in a thin paver for wet setting on a concrete/mortar base, is a wonderful combination of look and function and especially appropriate for driveways and patios!
Thin antique cobblestone pavers can be used for interior flooring and wall veneer in addition to traditional use outdoors on walkways, driveways and courtyards! The uniqueness of each cobble is part of the genuine charm and is the reason that natural, old antique cobblestone is so appealing! With the added feature of saw-cutting or slicing the antique cobble into a thin paver, the options and uses are greatly expanded!
