Case study: Limestone – Grinding a new Mediterranean floor
A brand new Mediterranean limestone floor had been badly installed by a tiler inexperienced in stone.
The customer was not at all happy with the chipped edges, lippage and undulation in the floor which not only looked shoddy but was a trip hazard.
The tiler had attempted to level the floor with an industrial sander but in the process destroyed the finish on a number of tiles, leaving white edges. The customer believed the floor could not be salvaged and that he would have to take part of the kitchen out in order to lay an entirely new floor.
We were able to repair the chipped edges and grind the floor flat, without removing any cupboards, minimising dust by covering them with plastic. Finally we re-polished the floor to restore the high gloss finish.
