Today’s flagstone restoration in Painswick was a great success!
“Thank you for doing a great job cleaning up our flagstone floor as well as your friendly service.”
These historic Cotswold flagstones have been re-layed around 20 years ago but not properly cleaned or restored before installation.
The flagstone restoration process is quite involved. After the initial strip and hone we were able to assess the damage. We set to work removing a layer of bitumen and cement residues from a few of the flagstones, while making sure we preserve the warm surface and natural patina of the old flagstones.
Once the stones were in good order we applied a coat of penetrating sealer to block in the Limestone’s natural porosity.
The final process was to apply a thin layer of Italian wax and burnish to subtle warm sheen.
