Regrouting limestone floors

Regrouting limestone floors

This is the toughest limestone on the planet, it’s almost as hard as concrete and near impossible to sand with our machines. This old floor had a previously had a carpet glued on top of it and the new owners of the house wanted to restore the blocks of stone rather than cover or replace them. 

Replacing grout in limestone tiles

At first the tiles seemed to be made of concrete because it had a perfect man-made pattern on the surface which turned out to be glue spots. Who would’ve guessed, that as the tiles were cleaned the little fossils started to appear below the dirt! The surface was sealed, the dirty old grey grout and mud was replaced with a lighter “praline” colour and then the tiles were sealed again.

With all the imperfections in the grout and on the surface, the restoration has the appearance of a newly laid tumbled limestone floor. Today the floor feels much more inviting, like a home.
