So much more than just a base to stand and walk on, flooring is one of the key features of a property that defines its charm and character.
Properly cared for and preserved, high quality stone flooring can endure for centuries. However, the wrong choice of stone in the wrong setting or improper care can lead to deterioration or damage that may be dangerous as well as unsightly.
Fortunately, Farcroft Restorations Group can help. Our expert stonemasons have in-depth knowledge of all types of stone, as well as the methods that may be used to revive them to their former glory.
We work extensively in the restoration and conservation of all types of stonework – both interior and exterior, and including stone flooring – as part of our historic and modern building restoration services.
There are many different types of stone that can be used in flooring, and each possesses qualities that make it suitable for use in particular areas or applications.
The composition of these different stones varies greatly, which makes selecting the most appropriate and effective restoration or conservation method a task for someone with specialist knowledge.
As well as being a defining feature of a property, a stone floor is often a high-value installation, so proper care and attention is needed to protect that initial investment.
