Stone Polishing Warrington

By On June 24, 2014 No Comments

Marble is a metamorphic rock and is by far one of the most recognisable and most popular natural stone. It is striking in its appearance and, once fitted, will look incredible, be durable and will last a lifetime if maintained correctly.

We were invited to provide our comprehensive stone restoration process for these marble tiles in Warrington. The owners of the house were completely renovating the entire property and wanted us to fully clean and polish their marble flooring after the grouting application had left the tiles covered in grout residue.

The stone floor was completely cleaned and then we completed diamond resurfacing to the entire tiled floor. This process is completed by using a graduated range of abrasive pads, slowly grinding down the surface of the tile. This stone polishing process can be used to remove scratches, scuffs and some staining.

Finer and finer grades of abrasive pads were then used to hone the surface to create an incredibly smooth finish. This process repeated delivers a high-gloss shine as showcased in the images. Our clients had specifically requested that they wanted a reflective finish. We discussed the likely additional maintenance that is required for high-shine stone finishes so that they were left well-equipped.

Again, the marble tiles were then fully sealed to protect them further from daily wear and tear. Our clients commented that they did not think the glossy shine we achieved would be possible. They felt that it enhanced the natural beauty of their marble and commented that it set a high standard to which the remaining restoration work had to compliment.

It is inevitable that immediately after installation natural floor tiles are being marred by foot traffic. It is important that any cleaning products used to regularly maintain or clean your stone floor are formulated specifically for that stone type.

We were invited to fully restore these Travertine tiles in Chorley. After inspection of the travertine floor we offered information and advice about our stone restoration process and our client made the decision that they wanted a high-sheen, polished finish to their floor.

We have devised a tailored process that utilizes specialised trade compounds and machinery that have been specifically developed for this procedure. This offers reduced disintegration of the stone tiles once they have been treated.

Once the stone flooring has been fully cleaned and restored, diamond encrusted rotary pads are used; this starts with course pads, reducing down through coarseness to finer pads. These incredibly fine pads produce a reflective and smooth finish.
