Project Details

Stone Type:
Limestone
Room:
Entrance and staircase
Service Provided:
Diamond grinding and polishing

We were approached by Bethany to advise on the options for restoring the limestone floor at a North London project. Working with a high-profile client, Bethany had been asked to renovate the home whilst keeping the structural aspects the same.

“One of the key decisions we made in the project was choosing to restore the limestone flooring that ran throughout the ground floor, staircase and landing. After considering the potential complications that could arise with replacing the floor completely, we decided to bring it back to its original state using a diamond resurfacing and polishing technique. This, along with simply changing the hue of the downlights from warm white to cool white brought the beautiful natural stone back to life.”

As with all projects of this size, we attended the site to provide a sample. For an entrance this grand, a high shine finish on the stone was the perfect option. This required 8 stages of diamond resurfacing to bring the finish back to the perfect level of shine. Special care was taken for the limestone staircase, although partially hidden by the stair runner, a central and most important feature of the project.

I wanted to leave a review for Danielle. She went above and beyond to help find alternative solutions so I could get my worktops/ tiles restored in the timeframe I need to, even following up afterwards to see how things panned out. Excellent communication!

Athena Stonecare is a great firm and I recommend it highly. Dave, Becca and the team could not have been more friendly and helpful, and they left our stone floor looking as good as new. I also thought their quote was very reasonable, given the amount of work involved.

So lovely to see the spring sunshine this morning, it really makes such a difference. Athena Stonecare have made this view much better this week, our marble had been heavily stained from cleaning products. It’s great to see it back to its former glory

Athena Stonecare did an excellent job on both my front steps and entrance hall floor, so much so that my neighbours asked for their details. I would be delighted to use them again and would unhesitatingly recommend them.

We all appreciate the miraculous improvement you achieved, and also the consideration and generosity of time, thought and advice given during the main working weeks and also helpful advice on aftercare.
