AW Edwards Construction has invited us in providing a polished concrete floor in 5 separate bays areas throughout the building site under the Cahill Express way in Milson’s Point.
I got a call the other day from a mate in the industry that I met on a building site a few months back in Little bay, it was really a surprise that I got a call from him to see if I could help out (in short notice) to rejuvenating a marble bench top in the kitchen area.
My builder friend Steve has these sandstone capping installed in his swimming pool for past few years, it is only recently that he noticed the capping are deteriorating to a point that were very noticeable. Steve cannot pin point if swapping from using chlorine to pool salt has caused the problem. I was asked to see if I could resurface these capping back to original condition, and to see if there are options to strengthen these sandstones against degradation.

After the initial resurfacing all the sandstone capping, we were indecisive whether to remove all the sandstone capping for dipping with stone strengthening chemicals, or simply apply the chemicals onto the surface wet on wet. However after lengthy decisions with my long time friend Cj Strine from http://www.aquamix.com.au, and Steve the builder, Steve has decided to bite the bullet and remove all the capping for six sides dipping.
Nowadays, textured and natural finish porcelain tiles are very popular installation in commercial and domestic buildings, this is due to the fact that these tiles meet R10, R11 and R12 slip rating requirements for council and building approvals, however texture tiles are instilled with thousands of micro-pores on the surface structure thus easily trapping acrylic based grout during the grouting cycle.
Pietra Grey marble has very nice natural characteristics, and many architects nowadays specified this type of marble in many newly built apartments in Sydney. Most type of surface is still in high honed and polished finish, however many these apartments are leased to tenants and not owner occupied, therefore we often seen etched markings in and around showers and toilet bowl areas.
Mick & Tina’s Travertine Floor in Matraville part 1
Mick and Tina from Matraville N.S.W. recently installed new 20mm high quality Travertine tiles throughout the ground floor of their beautiful home.
We were asked to clean and seal, and then polish up the new laid floor after grouting is cured.

Returning to Mick and Tina’s house in Matraville this week, we were busy into cleaning, sealing and polishing more travertine floor with Aquamix Ultrasolv, as well as rectifying some small lippages with localise grinding and polishing.

This is a beautiful house in Hurstville Grove, well it is designed like a resort similar in Northern Queensland,
The owner Roger requested the new travertine tiles to be ground flat to the groutlines!
