Sandstone Restoration Services

Sandstone is a sedimentary rock made of mineral particles and rock fragments the size of tiny sand particles. Despite being durable to the harsh elements like heat, rainfall and foot traffic – sandstone varies in hardness and porosity. Most types of sandstone can also absorb large amounts of water quite quickly.

Due to its porosity, sandstone is prone to staining from oil, water and chemicals. Other contaminants like dirt, grease and dust can also penetrate the surface and impact its overall quality.

The Stone Restorer is fully licensed and experienced in all forms of sandstone restoration. We understand the value of these treasured surfaces and how they can enhance the living space.

Here’s what we do to produce the perfect finish for your sandstone surface.

Surface Preparation

Before treating the surface, it’s important to remove loose contaminants. This helps prepare the surface and ensures the treatment will produce the best results.

Depending on the condition of the surface, we use ph-neutral detergents and low-psi pressure washers to remove dirt, grime, grease and dust. If you have sandstone tiles, these methods won’t damage the tile grout.

Sealing

As the first line of defence against stains, sealant is a long-lasting and effective way to maintain the surfaces quality.

Our water-based impregnating sealer creates a chemical barrier that stops liquid from penetrating the surface while allowing the natural stone breathe. Best of all, it’s invisible so it won’t alter the appearance of your sandstone either.

By reflecting liquid and stopping mould growth, your sandstone will look fantastic and last for longer. 

Polishing

The Stone Restorer prevents wear and tear from compromising the quality of your natural sandstone.

We use safe, non-abrasive polishing machines to restore the surfaces brilliant sheen and reflective quality. With your choice of a highly reflective or matte finish, your surface will resist foot traffic damage and maintain a finish that suits your personal taste.

DIY Advice

It’s important to have your sandstone maintained by a professional stone restorer. However, it’s good to know how to care for the surface on your own.
