BLUESTONE & BASALT
Bluestone & Basalt are growing in popularity and are being used in a wide range of situations from curbing in cities to highly polished flooring in modern homes.
Granite is a felsic intrusive igneous rock, granular in texture, mostly white, pink or grey in colour. Though durable & widely used in commercial projects, sealing is recommended.
Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed more than 50% by weight of calcium carbonate. This means it is highly sensitive to acids and special care must be taken when cleaning.
Marble is composed of recrystallised carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite. Though very dense, it will be adversely affected coming in contact with anything acidic.
PORCELAIN & CERAMIC TILE
Porcelain & Ceramic Tile can be one of the most difficult tiles to seal, this is because of its glass-like surface and it has a very low porosity, however it still can stain easily.
Sandstone is a durable formation of quartz grains bound together by other minerals like silica, calcium, clay & iron oxides. Unsealed they can stain & build up with mould easily.
Terracotta has been recognised across the world as a flooring of great aesthetic appeal. We recommend sealing as an important part of maintaining these tiles.
Terrazzo is a composite material, poured in place or precast, used for floor/wall treatments. It usually consists of chips of marble, quartz, granite, glass. Sealing is highly recommended.
Travertine is a chemically deposited limestone that has taken millions of years to form. This is a great stone that has some natural stain resistant. Sealing is still recommended.
