Restoring Terrazzo Flooring Berkshire

We were invited to survey this Victorian Terrazzo floor. It was unveiled after the current owners removed an old carpet. On discussion it turns out that the stone floor had been hidden under carpet since the 1970’s.

Restoring Terrazzo Floors ReadingTerrazzo Floor BerkshireFortunately the current owners could imagine what it would be like after professional stone restoration. The first image shows a small portion of the floor that we started to restore. This offers a clear comparison to the dirty and stained surrounding stone.

The images show the intricacy of the design that was found. The centre part of the floor was trimmed with the most detailed and beautiful design. As the restoration process progressed, the floor was transformed.

It became evident that once the floor had been finished that it really would complement its surrounding décor.

When the floor was uncovered it was nearly impossible to see all of the different components of the Terrazzo. There was so much build up and dirt that you were not able to see the many different colours within the floor.

The end result was a fabulously finished Terrazzo floor to be proud of. It offered a unique and worthy statement on entering the property. Do you live in a home that could possibly be hiding a stone floor underneath your existing floor covering?

Intriguing Information about Spectacular Stone

It is difficult to argue with the fact that stone floors are one of the most unique and versatile flooring types. You are not usually provided with the opportunity of such variation whilst guaranteeing quality and longevity.

It is quite correct that a unique selling point for stone flooring is that it can be restored if worn or damaged. Other flooring types can be cleaned but as far as transformations; stone tiles really do offer an unrivalled ‘wow’ factor.

The following video has been put together in order to discuss individual details about stone floor restoration. It is so important that existing and future clients are aware of this incredible provision. Too many floors are unnecessarily looking worn and lifeless; we aim to arm individuals with information that will help their floors to look greater for longer.

Point 1: daily wear is inevitable. Even the most careful and clean individuals cannot completely stop the deterioration of any natural stone floor. Particles are brought in from outside that act as an abrasive on your floors. Temperature fluctuations and levels of moisture can also alter the appearance of your tiles. Dullness, scrapes or even cracks can be repaired and restored to look like new.

Point 2: this point extends from point one as dirty grout lines are almost unavoidable. Whilst completing routine cleaning of stone tiles, dirt, particles, dust and moisture is pushed into the slightly indented grout lines. Stone restoration deep cleans grout lines so that they are left gleamingly clean and even stain repellent.

Are you intrigued to find out more? The above video goes into more points and further detail. With this you will be equipped with valuable information on how to deal with stone flooring to get the best from it.

Concrete Polishing Berkshire

You may be aware of the most recent ‘buzz’ word in stone floor restoration as being all about concrete! As with many other floor coverings there are waves of popularity and it is most definitely concentrated around concrete floors at the moment.

Do you want to know the truth?

Whilst a concrete floor is likely to offer aesthetic benefits it is sometimes a second consideration of the practicality of maintaining it. Could a concrete floor suit a home or business environment? Here’s some information that my help you decide:

Concrete Grinding BerkshireAre concrete floors cold?

Concrete, as a material, can be cold but no more so than other ceramic tile or natural stone alternatives. Concrete is able to store heat so is compatible with underfloor heating and even other heat sources such as direct sunlight.

Is concrete floor know to crack?

Some would agree that this is possibly the biggest drawback to a concrete floor. There is potential for cracking but again this is comparable to other stone types. Whether or not this is an objection comes from whether you are looking for a rustic-style appearance or not. Remember: stone repair services provide an exceptional solution to this!

Is concrete flooring expensive?

Again, it is important to compare concrete to other stone flooring and when compared with these, concrete offers an economic alternative. Another vital element is the longevity and durability of this surface as it can stand the test of time and will be much more long-lasting in comparison to other floor coverings.

Don’t forget that concrete floors are easily maintained and we offer comprehensive information and advice after the restoration process. We are specialist concrete polishing experts serving the Berkshire area. Please call today on 0800 695 7770 with any questions.
