Slate & Sandstone Tiles

Slate and Sandstone are fine grained metamorphic rocks composed mainly of clay, sand and silt. At Best Marble & Tile Care, we specialize in cleaning, stripping, re-sealing and restoration of slate and sandstone floor tiles.

Firstly we do a quick test on the sealer/coating on the slate/sandstone floor to determine which sealer has been applied previously, to ensure the new sealer is compatible. Some coatings may need to be stripped completely before commencing any works. We will advise our recommendations upon inspection. (We offer free quotations.)
