I'm looking for advise on purchasing Sawn Indian Sandstone slabs. Is there a massive difference in quality depending on where you get them from. As an example Marshals have a 11m2 pack for £800 ish which is around £70/m2 yet I have also seen similar looking slabs which look equally as nice for around the £22/m2 from naturalstoneandtimber.co.uk and many others also within that range and a little more from other sites too.
Why is there such a difference in price from Marshals, how can I justify a slab that is 3-4 times more expensive? The reason I ask is that a landscaper that is quoting a job for me that uses Marshals as a supplier says that all other "cheaper" brands will fade over time. How much truth is there in that?
