This shows the importance of specialist equipment and knowledge that can offer brilliant results, without exception.

The limestone floor needed to be fully ground. The way in which this process is completed creates a seamlessly even floor.

We were able to smooth the tiles, bring out the natural colouration and produce a striking floor that is long-lasting and durable, as required by the entrance of the hallway.

The first picture shows the limestone floors before we ground the floor flat. We then used our specialist stone restoration machinery to grind and hone the floor.

This process stripped back the surface of the existing limestone flooring. This efficiently removed any of its remaining coatings and eliminates any other issues such as scuffs and scratches.

Honing Stone:

This is an incredibly intricate process; to create a honed surface leaves a slightly matte finish. Each stone varies in the process of honing so this can be managed either through using honing powders or, in some cases, grinding with very fine diamonds will create a honed appearance.

Limestone

Limestone Tile Cleaning NewburyLimestone is a high quality luxurious stone that comes in so many different variations.

As it is very similar to marble, albeit softer, the same problems can occur if not properly cleaned and maintained. If the correct maintenance and cleaning products are used, it will look great for a lifetime.

It can, however, become stained, scratched and etched; all of which cause the surface to become dull and appear dirty. Stains can cause a problem which can be removed using a specialist poultice process.
