Standstone flooring Cleaning and Restoration Northern Ireland

Sandstone is a sedimentary rock composed mainly of sand-sized minerals or rock grains. Most sandstone is composed of quartz and/or feldspar because these are the most common minerals in the Earth’s crust. Like sand, sandstone may be any color, but the most common colors are tan, brown, yellow, red, gray and white. Various finishes to sandstone natural stone offer further depth and interest to the product, from a rustic riven top to a smooth contemporary product or even a weathered flagstone look. Furthermore the ability to stipulate random lengths (although always standard widths) of flagstones allow the finished area to shine with visual interest. With improper cleaning and sealing the floor will, overtime lose its appearance. We have devised a systematic approach of cleaning and sealing to restore floor to its original appearance.

Sandstone flooring. One of the biggest issues with sandstone flooring is the roughness of the surface. On this project, the client opted for the floor to be grinded flat and leave a smooth finish to the floor. This process is quite a lengthly and labour intensive floor work as it dose involve a lot of initial grinding to flatten out the floor. once the floor is grinded down flat we then go through a further 5 stages off honing to achieve a smooth scratch free finish. the final result is a warm country house finish. this also eases the maintenance regime greatly. the beauty about this is that it only has to be done one time.
