Restoring blue limestone paving
Cleaning a Stone Wall
Case Study - Blue Limestone
Blue Limestone treated with wrong sealer and applied while stone was not fully dry.
Solution - Strip off old existing sealer (Supplied by a competitor) and apply our Stontex Colour Intensifier (Supplied by Stonedoctors)
This project consisted of approx. 130m2 Blue Limestone
The area looked like the stone had been down years even though it was only completed 3 months previously.
The existing sealer was non breathable – not good for natural stone !
In some areas the existing sealer was actually peeling off.
Paving was cleaned with Stonetex Powerstripper Plus to remove the old Sealer.
Powerstripper Plus worked into the stone using a machine and left to work for approx. 20 mins to break down old sealer
Paving powerwashed to rinse off redisue of the cleaner and left to dry
The application of the Stonetex colour intensifier has brought the Paving back to its original Colour
Once Paving was clean and dry, our Stonetex Colour Intensifer Sealer was applied
This actual job required the use of mechanical rotary brushes in conjunction with the Stonetex Power Stripper Plus
On large commercial jobs like this the use of mechanical brushes speeds up the process. It still took the full day to remove the old sealer which was badly applied!
After removal of the old sealer the area was rinsed off and left to dry
