Revitalise your stone floor

stone floor restoration surreyStone floors can last decades – and some, like those in historic Surrey churches, have stood up under centuries of use. To keep a stone floor looking its best, it’s important to take care of it. Stone floors are typically scratch and stain resistant, but that doesn’t mean they’re impervious to damage. Fortunately, in most cases, the damage can be repaired and Surrey Marble and Granite are proud to offer a repair and refinishing service for many stone floors. Replacing a stone floor can be costly, and can significantly alter the character of an old or listed building. Rather than go through all the hassle and expense, call us today and find out if we can revitalise your stone floor.

Scuffs, marks and stains

Stone floors are typically finished by polishing and sometimes sealing the stone. Over time, this finish can wear away, either in places which get heavy use or where something scratches or scuffs the stone, such as a piece of furniture. Doorways, kitchens and entryways tend to be high-traffic areas and can start to show wear before the rest of the room. Bathroom floors can also show wear, particularly if the seal on a porous stone is starting to wear through. Repolishing, sealing and finishing the stone can remove scuffs, marks and stains, giving your stone floor a new lease of life. Refinishing a stone floor can make an enormous difference, returning a dull or marked floor to its original, elegant, state.

Cracks or chips

In many cases, a cracked slab will have no impact on the continued usability of a stone floor. Our professional polishing service can also deal with most chips and reduce the appearance of cracks. As part of the refinishing service, we’ll carefully remove the top millimetres of stone. As these have borne the stresses and strains, you’ll find a fresh, unmarked layer of stone waiting underneath. Cracks can be a serious concern if they indicate an underlying problem with the structure of the building, so if cracking is sudden, extensive or growing then it can be important to have the structure of the building assessed. Naturally, if you know how damage happened – for example, if something was dropped, causing a crack or chip – then this will not be necessary.

Extensive damage

After many years of wear or heavy use, stone slabs can become eroded, damaged or broken. In these cases, it may be necessary to replace some of the slabs. If this is done as part of a general repair and refinishing project, it will be easier to match the new slabs to the old, and to make them blend in with the original stone. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we stock a wide range of stones in a number of colours, so we may be able to match your stone. If you’ve got a damaged floor or a slab which needs replacing, get in touch today and we’ll work with you to find a great solution.
