Project Details

Stone Type:
Travertine
Room:
Kitchen
Service Provided:
Clean, resurface and polish

When renovating his kitchen, our client wasn’t sure whether to replace or restore his travertine floor. Recommended by his kitchen supplier, it was truly a pleasure to breath life back into this stunning stone.

After deep cleaning the grout lines and floor tiles the natural pits in the travertine were filled with polyester resin that was colour matched to the stone. One of the services that is included in all travertine resurfacing treatments that we offer is the filling of the pits by hand. Before installation, the naturally occurring pits in travertine are filled but over time the filler can become loose. This leaves the pits exposed and vulnerable to collect dirt. By filling these pits with colour matched resin or grout during the restoration process, the client will be left with a more even finish to the floor.

Using diamond abrasives the travertine was resurfaced to remove the surface scratches and chemical etch marks. The floor tiles were then resurfaced to a satin appearance and sealed with an impregnating sealant

The client was so pleased that he asked the team to restore several additional areas of the stone in rooms hardly used. One of the advantages of using natural stone is that it never goes out of fashion. No matter how often you redecorate, your stone floors will always be on trend. Clients often move into a property with no idea of the hidden beauty of their stone. If you are unsure if your natural stone can be restored then get in touch for a free visit and survey.

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.

On behalf of the Abbey I would like to thank you both for your team's work with our precious flooring. 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.
