The Benefits of Sandstone

Sandstone is a beautiful stone used in landscaping projects and one that not only adds real beauty to a property, but value, as well. The stone is attractive for driveways, patios, pathways and around swimming pools- basically, any exterior of the home. Its aesthetic features, its versatility and durability, make it a prime choice in landscaping stone among property owners.

A few benefits of sandstone as your choice in landscaping stone include:

• Sandstone comes in neutral tones, and the stone remains cools on the barefoot, which makes it ideal around swimming pools and walkways as it helps cool the heat. During winter, it is the opposite as sandstone radiates warmth in cold weather.

• Sandstone is a rustic stone and one that is fairly low maintenance.

• Sandstone can be sealed against the elements, allowing the stone to be resistant to corrosion and moisture.

• The stone retains its colour much longer than other landscaping stones that are continually exposed to environmental elements like the sun and changing weather conditions, as well as high traffic wear and tear.

• Should the sandstone pavers become damaged, they are fairly easy to replace

• Sandstone is available in a range of colours, allowing you to match your existing décor or have your choice of colour in décor.

• In the darker coloured sandstone like chocolate, auburn and deep brown, the stone contains a high quantity of iron oxide, allowing it to hide stains and marks.

• Light grey, cream, beige, and white sandstones will be riddled with red or purple lines that trace where water has entered the stone, making the stone quite interesting.

• The surface of pink and red sandstone has a non-slippery surface that is resistant to weathering.

• Sandstone is a stone that, when properly sealed and cared for will last a lifetime.

• Sandstone is available in a range of sizes, forms and shapes, so the stone can be utilised in any pathway design.

• Sandstone is used in both commercial and residential properties.

Concrete Polishing & Flooring Sydney

Concrete floors are in! 

If someone told you to consider using Concrete Flooring in your home you’d probably cringe. Your mind would go to the basement where everything is cold and dark or perhaps the garage where you’d never walk without shoes, and you’d instantly push the thought to the back of your mind.

It was about time it happened. With concrete being such a cost effective means to floor your home, it was about time that someone put the art, the creativity and the design into concrete and made it something that you just simply can’t resist. The many designs that one can incorporate into concrete is phenomenal and it’s no wonder that more and more people are being drawn to this option as a means of flooring their homes. But beauty isn’t all when it comes to concrete flooring, there are indeed a large number of pros in sprucing up your flooring with concrete.

 So what exactly is polished concrete?

When it comes to the difference between regular concrete flooring, the one that makes you cringe, and Polished Concrete Flooring, the one that leaves you speechless, it’s the chemicals and the tools that make the difference. For polished concrete a chemical densifier is used to treat the concrete after which the grinding tools come into play to give it that perfect glossy look. And, because you’d like to match the colour scheme of your home and get something a bit more extravagant, you can have your concrete stained in pretty much any way imaginable.

Sure you’ll have to wipe your floors and clean up spills every once in a while. However, aside from the normal cleaning that everyone has to take on, concrete flooring is pretty low maintenance. If you’re not someone who has tones of furniture going in and out of their come on a daily basis, and you’re pretty strict about not allowing cars to drive in your home, then the maintenance you will need for your concrete flooring will be ridiculously low. You’ll be looking at having it waxed and sealed every nine to twelve months, and in some cases you can go more than a year without having to do anything to it.

 It’s the environmentally friendly flooring option.

Think about how your house was made and what the materials consisted of. Think about your flooring specifically. Before the tiles were put in, there was concrete and so underneath those tiles must be concrete. This means that wanting to convert your flooring to concrete will only require to remove the tiling and get it prettified.
