    Installation after-care: what you need to know

     

    Stone is tough, durable and easy to care for – so why do we at Surrey Marble and Granite provide an after-care service? Well, the answer is simple: accidents do happen and we want our customers to have the full benefit of a like-new installation for as long as possible. With decades of experience, we know first hand how a little bit of TLC can transform a kitchen or bathroom that’s getting down-at-heel into prime.

    Maintaining your worktops

    Marble and granite worktops last for years with little maintenance, but that doesn’t mean they can never get damaged or benefit from a touch-up. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we seal all natural stone before installation. This prevents any food or liquid particles entering the stone, making it more hygienic, easier to clean and almost entirely stain resistant. Normal use will eventually wear away this seal, and it may do so before you notice any damage to the stone. A regular check up every year or two can let you know when resealing is due.

    Refinishing is a more intensive process, but can allow you to change the look of your stone. As an example, if you installed a high gloss granite kitchen worktop but feel that a rougher, farmhouse look is more on trend today, that change might be possible without installing a new stone but by simply changing the finish type.

    Taking care of stone floors

    Furniture, feet, scooters that aren’t supposed to be in the house at all, tin cans, recycling boxes… when you think of the number of heavy, sharp-edged or dirty items our floors have to put up with, it’s surprising they aren’t in worse shape. Unlike carpet, lino or wood, stone floors don’t absorb stains or odours, and can’t snag or tear. They can still be worn away by years of use though.

    In many cases, the effect is subtle – something just starts to feel off, and you’re not as happy with the space as you were. The professional after-care services we offer at Surrey Marble and Granite can give your stone floors a lift, bringing dulled areas back to their high gloss and ensuring a consistent, modern finish and effective seal is applied across all areas.

    Touch-ups before you move

    Installing a brand-new kitchen or bathroom in order to put your house on the market is often a poor investment. In trying to guess what potential buyers will like, it’s easy to spend more than you can recoup in sale value. You may also regret having to move, once you’ve got the place looking so nice!

    Instead, as professional stoneworkers, Surrey Marble and Granite recommend resealing or refinishing stone surfaces. Resealing or refinishing natural stone is a quick and cost-effective way to restore the original impact of a beautiful piece of marble or granite. Engineered quartz worktops, such as Silestone or Quarella may also benefit from a similar treatment. And, of course, if you need any repair work done, that can also be managed as part of the process.

    Creating a statement wall is a great way to draw the eye and give your room a focus without taking up any floor space. While it would be lovely to have rooms large enough to fit, never mind lose, a grand piano in, for most British families space is a major limitation. A feature wall made of rough limestone cladding or glossy granite tiles can be transformative, giving the whole space an atmosphere without changing another thing.
