Stone Floor Restoration & Repair in Wakefield

A quick look at a Stone Floor we restored in Wakefield this week.

The York sandstone floor had been buried under lino and bitumen for around 50 years and was in a poor state. The  stone floor was sandblasted to remove the heavy bitumen contamination and then lightly cleaned of dust etc. 

Once this stage was completed we cut new York sandstone flags and laid them along the edges where the floor had been previously infilled with concrete. The new flags were left to set overnight so the floor could be repointed the next day. We carefully repointed the floor after raking out all the old lime pointing which was still present in places. Again the floor was left to dry before we cleaned the floor with a mild alkaline solution and a very mild acidic solution to remove any cement residues still present form the pointing process.

 

York Sandstone flags are extremely porous so we used an impregnator to seal the floor which has a particularly high polymer content. Once the impregnator had dried and cured we applied a slightly different type of seal over the top of the impregnator to give the floor maximum protection.
