Multi-coloured Slate Tiles Darlington

By On April 5, 2013 No Comments

A multi-coloured slate tile with mixed shades produces a really rustic feel for any room. They vary slightly in colour and thickness between tiles, which allows for individuality and are a striking focal point.

Over time, these tiles will need to be re-sealed and may lose their brightness.

Slate provides high slip resistance which means that it is well-suited to a variety of rooms including kitchens, bathrooms and entrance ways; it is a durable stone that will, if looked after correctly, last a lifetime.

Many people also choose to use slate tiles externally for patios and driveways. Not only do they look great but they suit both traditional and contemporary settings.

Chinese Slate Floor Tile Restoration Stockton

By On January 20, 2012 No Comments

This Chinese slate floor in Stockton had been layed approximately 10 years ago and was sealed when new, but never since!

This can be quite a common problem because the flooring protection wears off over time and once it is worn then mopping and sweeping won’t be enough to keep the slate floor tiles looking nice!

You can see how the sink and oven areas became ingrained with mainly food residue and dirt over the period as the floor protection wore off.

The floor had to be stripped back and deep cleaned to allow several coats of slate sealing protection to be installed bringing the floor back to its beautiful best.

A good simple care and maintenance programme was recommended to help keep the slate floor looking great.
